Sage Hospitality Group Dir Engineering in Houston, Texas
Taking its inspiration from her-story, C. Baldwin honors Charlotte Baldwin Allen, wife of Augustus Chapman Allen who co-founded Houston with his brother John Kirby Allen in 1836. The soul of the hotel acknowledges her pioneering role as “Mother of Houston” and lauds her hands-on 19th c. presence as a pivotal businesswoman, cattle rancher, philanthropist, and trailblazer. The property, in all ways, celebrates the trailblazing spirit of women in Texas. This stunning 354-room hotel boasts 14,000 square feet of meeting space, a signature restaurant, Rosalie, helmed by celebrity Chef Chris Cosentino, a hidden speakeasy, a local Grab and go concept, Good2GO, abundant green space, Sloan/Hall luxury goods, and an all-natural salon, Paloma.
