Harwood Hotel
Hôtel Swexan

Harwood Hospitality Group’s flagship hotel—named Hôtel Swexan, opening in 2023—promises “the confluence of Texan charm and international European flair.” The moniker comes from the blend of Swiss and Texan cultures and is a nod to Harwood International’s multi-generational Swiss-Texan heritage. Harwood’s founder, Gabriel Barbier-Mueller, was born and raised in Geneva before moving to Texas in 1979 to pursue a career in real estate. As with all of Harwood’s properties, art and design will be at the forefront of the new project. The 22-story tower is the third building in the Harwood District designed by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. The hotel’s interiors, which will be done by Harwood’s in-house design team, are inspired by a classical 19th Century Parisian residence, offering “comfortable yet elegant furniture and intricate, hand-carved stone and wooden fireplaces on every floor.”
