    The Hilton University of Houston underwent a $12.5 million renovation in 2010, the first major renovation since the hotel was built in 1975. This contemporary new facility serves as the training hotel for students attending the top-ranked hospitality school. Here, students work with hotel professionals to gain hands-on experience in guest service, hotel operations and banquet service. The hotel offers 86 hotel guest rooms and six suites and 25,000 square feet of flexible meeting space—10 meeting rooms which include three ballrooms with capacities ranging from 10 to 600 people. Business casual dining is also available in Eric's Restaurant, making the Hilton University of Houston the ideal destination for meetings, banquets, receptions and special events. Accommodations can be made at any level.
    The facility also houses the Hospitality Industry Hall of Honor, five hospitality related institutes and the new Massad Family Library Research Center and Hospitality Industry Archives, which is open to students, faculty and industry professionals alike. In addition to Eric's Restaurant, there is also the student-run Barron's Restaurant and a student-run gourmet coffee house called Cougar Grounds. A food service production area, a product evaluation and testing laboratory, demo kitchen and computer labs are also an integral part of this unique teaching complex.
