About the Project

Apart from its immediate proximity to the Houston Galleria, the 325-room Hyatt Regency is a mere 20 minutes from just about anywhere of interest to visitors in Houston: corporate offices, restaurants, and attractions ranging from the Museum District and the aquarium to NRG Stadium and Minute Maid Park.

And it’s merely a short walk due south the Hyatt Place hotel—to which Southwest Wall Systems also contributed.

Southern Wall Systems installed the luxury property’s BASF Finestone Pebbletex DCA, including thin-brick masonry, below-grade waterproofing, and sealants throughout 65,000 square feet of surface.

The Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria is merely a short walk due south from the Hyatt Place hotel—another Hyatt property that benefitted from work performed by SWS.
