Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This landmark’s spectacular lobby gives a great first impression. Houston’s historic Rice Hotel, built in 1913, has attracted a who’s who from Sam Huston, FDR and JFK to Clark Gable and Mick Jagger with its elegant surroundings that start right at the entry.
  • Original architectural flourishes mesh seamlessly with up-to-date technology. Coved ceilings, rich drapery and polished wood abound throughout. You also have everything you need for multimedia presentations and the latest décor ideas.
  • The Crystal Ballroom’s 35-foot ceiling and classic murals add to its grandeur. Graceful archways, columns with pediments, chandeliers dripping in crystals—even a wraparound balcony and adjacent parlor—create a luxurious wedding backdrop.
