HOUSTON - The JW Marriott Downtown and its new restaurant, Main Kitchen, which is housed inside the hotel, are open. The 328-room hotel is located at 806 Main St.

The hotel is in the Samuel F. Carter building. Built in the 1900s, the building was scheduled for demolition until Pearl Hospitality purchased it and began renovations.

The renovation includes two ballrooms — the Picasso and the Monet — which are nods to the hotel’s eclectic art collection, which will eventually include a 13-foot sculpture of a gryphon, the mythical winged creature that makes up JW Marriott’s logo.

Main Kitchen will offer in-house dining and banquet catering services. The restaurant and lounge will seat 132 and will feature a variety of international flavors, including local seafood and a breakfast paella.

The JW Marriott is just one of eight new hotels either underway or planned for downtown Houston to be completed by 2017 when the Super Bowl comes to town.
