Paloma is known for its chic environs.
A hotel with a bit of girl power? Count us in. The new C. Baldwin is an ode to Charlotte Baldwin Allen, the woman who helped finance the initial growth of Houston. Designed by Lauren Rottet and Kate Rohrer (of ROHE Creative), the sumptuous hotel features 354 modern guest rooms and meeting spaces named after inimitable Texan women (Adina De Zavala, Barbara Jordan and Edna Dee Woolford Saunders, to name a few). Two beloved Houston retail brands are also checking in. Snag one-of-a-kind gifts and sartorial gems at Sloan/Hall’s outpost before getting pampered at Paloma’s design-savvy, nontoxic nail salon. We can thank the “Mother of Houston” for a new favorite downtown haunt. 400 Dallas St., 713.759.0202, cbaldwinhotel.com
