Texas State Hotel

720 Fannin St. – Houston TX (built 1929; architect: Joseph Finger; Currently Club Quarters Hotel)

 

The Texas State Hotel is one of Joseph Finger’s ornate downtown Houston hotels – like the Lancaster/Auditorium and William Penn, it is decorated with cast terracotta. It was originally set to open in time for the 1928 Democratic National Convention which was being held in Houston but financial problems and a change of hands – finally to Jesse Jones – delayed the opening until 1929.
