HOUSTON’S SHAMROCK HOTEL

One of the most colorful events in Houston history was the grand opening of the famous Shamrock Hotel in 1949 on St. Patrick’s Day.

The hotel was built on fifteen landscaped acres at the intersection of Main Street and Holcombe Boulevard by Houston oilman Glenn McCarthy, a wildcatter who personified in many ways what some people still think of Texans to this day.

Approximately 50,000 people attended the grand opening, reputed to have been the wildest party in the city’s history. The rich and famous of Texas society all wanted to be there, and so did everyone else. Life Magazine called it the most dazzling exhibition of evening dresses and big names ever seen in Texas.”

Movie star Dorothy Lamour broadcast her national radio show from the hotel during the party. McCarthy wore dark glasses to hide a black eye reported to have been received in a fist fight at the train station when he went to meet the Hollywood celebrities arriving for the party.

Shamrock Hotel Emerald Room

One Houston resident recalled, “I still remember the Shamrock. It was fabulous in every way, perhaps overdone to some degree. The Emerald Room was the big ballroom, all decorated in emerald green as a tribute to McCarthy’s Irish ancestry. And there were many exciting events that took place there.”

Hotel guests and Houstonians flocked to the fancy retail shops and various restaurants, including the Cork Club, a nightclub that featured big-name entertainment.

The 18-story Shamrock had more than 1,100 guest rooms and poolside bungalows called lanais.

Houston s Shamrock Hotel – 50 meter pool

Its swimming pool was a 50-meter, Olympic-sized pool with three-meter and ten-meter diving platforms. It was big enough to accommodate a boat pulling water skiers when shows were held for the guests.

“The Shamrock was just a very glamorous place to be in Houston. It was unique; it was a place to be seen,” another Houstonian stated.

The hotel became so popular with the city’s social set that it was affectionately referred to as the “Houston Riviera.” Everything in the hotel was a little extreme, but that was typical of Glenn McCarthy, who was known to be Edna Ferber’s prototype for Jett Rink in “Giant,” her novel that was later made into the classic movie.

In the mid 1950s Conrad Hilton acquired the property and renamed it the Shamrock Hilton. Trader Vic’s, the popular restaurant opened at the hotel and caught the attention of Houstonians with its unusual Polynesian décor and food.

Some said the hotel was too big to be profitable and others thought it was too far from Houston’s central business district. It began to lose favor when newer, more modern hotels were built. The once-glamorous Shamrock Hotel, which had become a symbol of Houston, fell on hard times in the 1980s. It was demolished in 1987 and replaced with a parking lot.

The story of the Shamrock Hotel is featured in the television documentary “In Search of Houston’s History,” produced by Sunset Productions in association with the Friends of the Texas room and the Houston Public Library.

Sarnie Randle has been an attorney since 1975 and board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1984. He is highly regarded as a competent trial lawyer with over 30 years experience representing injured victims in personal injury claims. Many of them have had auto accidents, truck accidents or motorcycle accidents, as well as injuries from pedestrian accidents, premises liabilities, products liabilities, slip-n-falls, breach of contract, deceptive trade practices, construction accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse\negligence, and wrongful death cases. Sarnie Randle is committed to fighting for the rights of individuals, and their families, who have suffered injuries and wrongful deaths due to the negligent conduct of others. Attorney Randle will handle the insurance adjusters and work hard to obtain the maximum for your injury.

Personal injury law is complex and negligence can be difficult to prove. Only an experienced personal injury attorney can effectively establish and present the facts of your case to ensure that you receive fair compensation. If you have been hurt because of another person or company’s negligence, you may be entitled to recover damages from those responsible. Sarnie Randle will thoroughly analyze your case and offer advice as to your best legal options. Whether he is working with you to reach a fair and equitable settlement, or is aggressively pursuing litigation, he acts in your best interest.

Because of the Statute of Limitations, it is important that you act quickly or you may permanently lose your right to file a claim. The sooner you call attorney Randle, the sooner he can go to work on your behalf. Remember, time is on the side of the insurance companies. The longer you wait, the weaker your personal injury case becomes. Witnesses forget or move, physical evidence is removed, and claims filing deadlines run out. You need to act now.

The call is FREE and so is your initial consultation. In fact, YOU PAY US NOTHING unless we make a recovery for you. Our fee is contingent on securing a verdict or settlement for you.

There is no I in Rice.

Philosophically speaking, anyway. At Rice we understand the power of individual thought and reflection. But a small research university is made large by collaboration. With more than 40 interdisciplinary centers and partnerships with other institutions, Rice produces big results. We bring our undergraduate students into our labs to work with gifted researchers, staying true to the real definition of experiential learning.

Not just to get an education, but to
live a life.

That’s what Edgar Odell Lovett, Rice’s first president, wanted students to experience. At Rice, we take the business of knowledge seriously but this doesn’t mean we don’t have fun. We do. But in the deepest sense, we understand that only those things taken seriously are really fun. If you like this idea, you will like Rice.

Our students come from all walks of life to engage in the Rice experience and go on to become some of the world’s most exceptional thinkers, researchers, professionals, athletes and artists. By embracing the Rice spirit of “no upper limit,” our alumni community remains connected with the university for a lifetime of learning and support. The Association of Rice Alumni strengthens these connections through programs that unite alumni, students, faculty, parents and friends around the globe.

Broadly recognized excellence and distinction.

Year in and year out, our graduates bring the skills, morals and attributes they developed as student–athletes at Rice into their professional lives, whether they continue their careers in the professional sports arena or represent the newest generation of CEOs, doctors, lawyers, educators, consultants, entrepreneurs or managers.

Located on a 300-acre tree-lined campus in Houston, Rice University is consistently ranked among the nation’s top 20 universities by U.S. News World Report. Rice’s undergraduate student-to-faculty ratio is approximately 6-to-1. Its residential college system builds close-knit communities and lifelong friendships, just one reason why Rice is highly ranked for best quality of life by the Princeton Review and for best value among private universities by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.

No limits, no boundaries, no stopping.

At Rice, we learn from our world-class faculty, from each other and from people around the globe. Rice has highly respected schools of architecture, business, continuing studies, engineering, humanities, music, natural sciences and social sciences and is home to the Baker Institute for Public Policy. We offer robust and productive research and teaching endeavors across a wide spectrum of disciplines, with a strong focus on the student experience and outcomes.
