A joint venture between owners Hines and Novak Brothers, Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center is the Sheraton brand's 15th hotel to open in the "Lone Star State."

"Texas is one of the top destinations for both leisure and business travelers alike, and an important market for the Sheraton brand to continue its growth in," said Bob Jacobs, Vice President of Brand Management, Sheraton North America. "The opening of Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center underscores our focus on continuously enhancing our portfolio with even more compelling options for our guests and is a valued asset to the brand."

Featuring an upscale, Lone Star-inspired design, with rich wood accents and vibrant color palettes, the hotel aesthetic captures the charm of Georgetown with paintings and sculptures from local artists displayed throughout the building. The hotel's stylish and cozy guest rooms are each equipped with all of the Sheraton brand's signature amenities and services, including a premium sleep experience. The property also features a heated outdoor pool, fitness center and the Sheraton Club Lounge, which offers complimentary breakfast, beverages and evening hors d'oeuvres for Sheraton Club guests.

The uniquely designed Lobby Lounge serves as an open hub for meeting, eating and connecting. During the day, the Lobby Lounge offers a relaxed setting to work and mingle. In the evening, it transforms into a social atmosphere with the Lobby Bar featuring Sheraton's signature Paired program with premium wines by the glass and local craft beer. The hotel's signature restaurant, Brix And Ale, serves classic comfort cuisine, complemented by a carefully curated menu of local wine, beer and cocktails. Additionally, guests can enjoy 24-hour room service.

The conference center offers a range of layouts and pricing options flexible enough to accommodate events of all sizes, from small social gatherings to extravagant weddings and corporate meetings. The center boasts 30,000 square feet of functional meeting space, including a 16,000-square-foot ballroom with 10 distinct sections, and four breakout rooms including a state of the art boardroom.

"There is no doubt this is a game-changing project for our city," said Dale Ross, Mayor of Georgetown. "Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel will allow us to introduce the Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas, our park system, and other places that make our city unique to visitors outside our region. This project is positioned for the highest level of success and we couldn't be more excited to have this first-class facility located in Georgetown."
