New Houston Hotel to Bring Ambitious Sushi Restaurant, Karaoke Bar and International Flair to Texas Medical Center

Blossom Hotel Will Become the Only Luxury Hotel Near NRG Stadium

BY // 12.08.20

A sushi restaurant and a karaoake bar are two of the unexpected amenities that will set apart the latest entry into the Texas Medical Center’s field of luxury hotels. And those are not the only nod to its Asian heritage that will be apparent when the Blossom Hotel Houston Medical Center opens in April.

Artwork and mobiles of graceful cranes — a symbol of love and long life in Asian cultures— waft throughout the 16-story hotel at 7118 Bertner. The serene decor is not only a subtle expression of the hotel ownership, which is China based, but also a statement of the international flair that the property aims to bring to the neighborhood south of Braes Bayou.

“Our internationally-focused concept truly reflects the city’s culture,” Christen Larsen, Blossom Hotel director of sales and marketing says in a statement. “And we look forward to bringing an innovative hotel to an area of Houston that has not yet seen luxury travel like this before.”

Indeed, the new property is the only luxury hotel within blocks of NRG Stadium. While the medical center is a bit farther afield, the hotel will provide transport to and from the hospitals and clinics. Long-term storage is another special offering. Add translation services in Mandarin, German and Spanish to those unique perks.

The sophisticated boutique property, 267 rooms, is the first United States venture of the Blossom Holding Group which has seven large-scale hotels in China with four in Hangzhou. That city of 10.5 million people is headquarters for the holding group.

“We designed the hotel to mirror the union of both Houston’s unique character and our goal to embrace our international guests,” Larsen adds. “Just as Houston has welcomed us, we are thrilled to welcome Houston and beyond to Blossom Hotel, a concept engrained into our brand identity: Be International. Be Houston. Be You.”

The streamlined design of the hotel is said to have been inspired by two of Houston’s notable industries — health care and aerospace with the serene decor emulating a lunar color scheme.

Amenities include the Rendez Vu lobby bar; the fine dining Estrella fusion restaurant; Mizuki Karaoke with four private karaoke rooms; sushi bar; and Zenith, a rooftop pool lounge. The hotel also boasts 13 meeting rooms of varying sizes, including a 3,000 square foot ballroom.
