Celebrate the 4th of July “C. Baldwin style” with the Red, White & Blue package. Kick-off your patriotic weekend with a Red, White & Blue welcome cocktail in the Lobby Bar. From there, head up to your west-facing guest suite, with an ideal view of Houston’s premier firework display, which takes place just down Allen Parkway from the hotel.
