NewcrestImage continues to add to its portfolio with the opening of a 91-room, 4-floor Hyatt Place in western Amarillo. This is the company’s fourth hotel in Amarillo, with a total of 514 rooms in operation in the city.
The Hyatt Place is the second property of a three-hotel, 300-room “hotel campus” located on a five-acre site. The other hotels are a 90-room, 4-floor Tru by Hilton that opened in August of 2018 and a 90-room, 4-floor Aloft, a Marriott brand, that is scheduled to begin construction by mid-year of 2020.
The hotel complex is located in the heart of the city’s medical district at the intersection of I-40 Frontage Road and South Soncy Road, which the Texas Department of Transportation describes as among Amarillo’s busiest junctions.
“We offer travelers three distinctive hotel experiences and styles at a single, high-visibility, high-traffic location,” explained Mehul Patel, Chairman and CEO of NewcrestImage.
The company owns and operates two other properties in Amarillo, both in the dynamic downtown area: an award-winning 107-room, 10-floor Courtyard by Marriott that opened in 2011 in the city’s historic Fisk Building and a 226-room, 6-floor Embassy Suites that opened in December of 2017 directly across from the Amarillo Civic Center complex.
The Embassy Suites is in the process of adding a 118-seat upscale Las Brisas Southwest Steakhouse and will also add a Starbucks that is part of an agreement reached by NewcrestImage earlier this year to add coffee shops at four of its hotels.
