Meet John, Your Sotherly Host In Houston

Meet John, your Sotherly Host at The Whitehall located in Houston, Texas!

John has worked at The Whitehall for eleven years and has lived in Houston for 24 years — making him our all-things-Houston expert!

His favorite part of being the Sotherly Host is interacting with all of his guests and making sure they’re enjoying their stay at The Whitehall. John’s idea of Southern Hospitality is making guests feel welcomed and at home by offering excellent service and friendly conversation. His goal is to make Houston a home-away-from-home for his guests by helping them connect with fun activities, Houston arts & culture, and awesome restaurants.

During his free time, John can be found munching down on the Southern Fried Stuffed Chicken at Edgar’s Hermano or exploring the city with friends and trying out new restaurants and bars.

John’s favorite guest story is of a couple that went on their first date at one of our restaurants and took a picture together on the historic spiral staircase. One year later, they decided to get married at The Whitehall. Then, to commemorate their anniversary, they came back to The Whitehall to take another picture on the spiral staircase.

Be sure to visit John at The Whitehall during your visit to Houston to get the full Bayou City experience! He’ll get you settled in with a Strawberry Smash cocktail and make sure your stay is full of Southern comfort and charm.

John, ready to usher guests to Houston’s best happy-hour!
