THE VENUE @ CENTERPOINTE MIDTOWN is an elegant newly renovated intimate setting located in the heart of Greater Houston Midtown Area, just minutes from Downtown Houston, the Medical Center and the Museum District. The 78 year old Historic building was purchased in 1994 by Lou A. Guillory to house her counseling agency, Centerpointe Counseling Services, where she has provided therapeutic counseling services for individuals, families and groups for the last two decades.

      Phase II of the use of this beautiful building include the addition of our premiere event venue with rental space for social, family, business and educational events.  The use of the building as a Hospitality Venue was inspired by Ms. Guillory’s mother, Essie Frank who began the operation of her restaurant and bakery from the kitchen of the family’s three bedroom home in southern Opelousas, Louisiana. She later moved her business to a rented building where she cooked and served delicious southern dishes, pies and cakes until she became ill at the age of 81.  The facility’s Legacy space is named in her honor. 

      Ms. Guillory’s Hospitality interest was broaden through the years as her son took the family on a journey of hotel ownership and began the family’s  Hotel Hospitality Company, Centerpointe Hotel Partners LLC, and in 2003 the doors were opened to their first newly constructed hotel, The Hampton Inn in Deer Park, Texas.  The journey continued with the acquisition and renovation of The LaQuinta Inn in Dothan, Alabama in 2008, and most recently the development and construction of The Hampton Inn by Hilton Hotels in East Houston, and the soon to be opened The TownePlace Suites by Marriott Hotels also in East Houston. Texas.

     It is our desire that the Venue @ Centerpointe Midtown will be enjoyed for decades to come and all who enters our doors will  be inspired to create their own memories.
