HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 15, 2013) - In any workplace, coworkers often become friends, and friends become as close as family. Never was this more the case than at the Houston Marriott North, where staff came together to help two of their own.
Two families with associates working at the property were "adopted" by the Marriott this past holiday season, each receiving a Christmas tree, holiday dinner, and new and used gifts for their children. These single mothers and their families experienced first-hand, from the friends they work with every day, the true spirit of the holiday season.
This isn't the first time this Houston airport hotel has gone above and beyond to help those in need. When Hurricane Isaac caused severe damage along the northern Gulf Coast of the United States in late August 2012, the hotel's staff raised money with a "Wear Jeans to Work" Day.
This exceptional property welcomes guests to revitalized guest rooms and hotel suites in Houston. In addition, the Houston Marriott North's Great Room Lobby is where meeting space meets eating space. Unique among Houston airport hotels, the expanded Concierge Lounge offers a cozy atmosphere, Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV and complimentary beverages.
The hotel also features DEN (Drink Eat Network), one of the most stylish restaurants in north Houston, serving traditional American fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Starbucks® coffee and favorite specialty drinks are also available to-go or with a meal when guests dine in at DEN.
This stylish, full-service hotel is only eight miles from Houston International Airport (IAH) and just minutes from Exterran, ExxonMobil, Baker Hughes, Halliburton, Hewlett Packard and numerous other corporations. Enjoy complimentary shuttle service to and from IAH Airport and nearby destinations. Guests can bring the family and visit nearby attractions, including Splashtown, Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion and Sam Houston Racetrack.
Sports fans can cheer on the Houston Texans, Rockets or Astros and then return to the comfort of their room. Premier among IAH hotels, Houston Marriott North provides the perfect location to experience legendary Texas hospitality.
