CEO of DePalma Hotel Corporation announced today the addition of two
properties to the DePalma management portfolio. “We’re very
pleased to have these two great hotels in the DePalma family” said
DePalma. “Adding these properties at the end of the year brings a
very busy 2004 to an exciting conclusion”.
The Fort Worth Plaza hotel—offering 432 guestrooms and 24,000 square feet of function space--is owned by Puson GCH, LP and is currently undergoing extensive renovations to comply with a potential chain affiliation. “We’re looking at the majority of the upper-tier flags for the property to determine the most effective synergy between the property and a brand in this market” added DePalma.

relationships with a number of financial institutions that look to DePalma to assist with distressed properties” said DePalma.
