My Place to open second of several Texas hotels in September

A new My Place Hotel-Lubbock, Texas, is expected to open in September. The four-story, 63-room hotel is located near dining, shopping and entertainment options, as well as Texas Tech University, Jones AT&T Stadium and the city’s medical district.

Lubbock’s newest hotel is independently owned by KAMP Hotels, who recently executed a territorial development agreement with My Place Hotels of America to build 30 new Texas hotels. While the principals of KAMP Hotels opened their first My Place Hotel close to home in Amarillo, Lubbock is where Kevin Nelson and Alan Rhodes, owners of KAMP Hotels, earned their undergraduate degrees at their respective alma maters Texas Tech University and Lubbock Christian University.

“Lubbock’s momentum and hub city status continues to impress us as we watch the region look to Lubbock for medical care, education, entertainment, business and culture,” Nelson said. “We are pleased to bring this exciting new hotel product to the city that has meant so much to both of us over the years. We are confident our Lubbock guests will enjoy this fresh new product. It looks like we are on schedule to open this fall and look forward to seeing everyone from football fans to extended stay guests make My Place their place.”
