The locations will be closed until further notice, according to the corporation.
"The safety and wellbeing of our valued employees, our communities and our guests, is our highest priority," according to the release. "As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend operations of our hotels and restaurants at The Woodlands Resort, The Westin at The Woodlands and Embassy Suites by Hilton at Hughes Landing. Updates will be posted on our hotel websites as they become available."
Visit The Woodlands, the convention and visitors bureau for The Woodlands, discussed the challenges ahead for the hospitality industry at its meeting last week. The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center was operating at 7% occupancy last week, according to officials.
Howard Hughes Corp. said in the release its management remains optimistic about the properties' future.
"Our thoughts and prayers remain with our team members and their families who exemplify our brand purpose of being 'passionately engaging with a personalized Texas spirit,'" the release stated. "We look forward to a more optimistic future, and to the opportunity to welcome all of us back together at our properties."
