InterServ to help restore historic Downtown El Paso hotel

Upon completion in 2018, the historic Hotel Paso Del Norte will operate as a Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel.

Renovation and construction company InterServ will oversee the restoration and renovation of the historic Hotel Paso Del Norte in Downtown El Paso, Texas. When the property opens in 2018, it will be part of Marriott's Autograph Collection.

The Hotel Paso Del Norte first opened in 1912. The Meyers Group purchased the property in 2016, and is now funding the renovation. InterServ is responsible for the demolition and reconstruction of 344 guestrooms, a new gym facility, a Dome Bar, Steak House restaurant, the lobby and lounge areas of the property, and the outdoor courtyard, among others.

The Meyers Group will spend $70 million for the restoration, and the redesign will highlight local materials, such as copper, brass and deep burnished leather to create the traditional atmosphere of the El Paso historic hotel. Natural materials, such as worn rough wood finishes, will be used to offset the polished metals set alongside the gray and brown colors of the red ochre hues surrounding the Franklin Mountains.
