A semi-outdoor wedding in the heart of downtown becomes a reality at The Sam Houston Hotel with its unique Veranda by *17.
Nestled in the boutique Sam Houston hotel, Veranda by *17 is a hidden gem. Its contemporary yet historic courtyard space is enclosed by a permanent tented roof, giving it an outdoor look and feel.
The Veranda's ivy wall provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding ceremony, requiring minimal additional décor. Immediately after the ceremony, your guests are invited to our stylish lobby lounge for a private cocktail reception featuring passed hors d'oeuvres from the *17 culinary team. Take photos with your wedding party on the Veranda, while our staff transforms the room for your reception in one hour or less. Enjoy a seated or buffet dinner, and dance the night away with 50-200 guests. Veranda by *17 is truly a unique and inviting environment for your perfect downtown wedding.
At the end of the event, you may continue the festivities in the Sam Bar (open until 2 am), or take the elevator home to one of the Sam Houston Hotel's luxuriously appointed guest rooms. A complimentary suite is reserved for the bride and groom, along with champagne and strawberries and créme to ensure a memorable wedding night. The Sam Houston Hotel also provides discounted room rates exclusively for your friends and family.
Our dedicated event staff will attend to your every need while helping to create the perfect setting for your wedding celebration at Veranda by *17.
