Woodlands Resort Texas


In 1974, a modest 218-room property known as The Woodlands Inn opened down the street from The Woodlands’ first neighborhood in the Village of Grogan’s Mill.

Over the next several decades, multi-million dollar expansions and renovations transformed the property into the region’s premier meeting and vacation destination. Today, renamed The Woodlands Resort, the Resort is revealing a new guest wing, lazy river and steakhouse restaurant along with updates of the property’s 60,000-square-foot Conference Center, arrival entrance, lobby and bar and various common areas.
