Hilton Americas is Houston’s largest convention hotel, with 1,200 guest rooms, 91,000 square feet of meeting space, 66,000 square feet of ballrooms and 30 versatile meeting rooms.
Built at a cost of $285 million, the hotel features a state-of-the–art HVAC system whose 4,550 tons of cooling are implemented through an array of mechanical systems rarely found in a single building. Five miles of piping and two miles of linear diffusers serve the first six floors alone. The hotel has the most complicated stair-pressurization and smoke-detection system in Houston.
