A public/private partnership -- led by NewcrestImage, a Dallas-based hotel development and construction firm -- is bringing a new upscale, all-suites hotel to downtown Amarillo, Texas.
The 226-room, six-story Embassy Suites hotel, which will be a mixture of two-room and studio suites, will be located across the street from the Amarillo Civic Center and is scheduled to open in June of 2017.
“Success is a team sport, and this project features an exceptional team of individuals from government and from the private sector who are collaborating closely to translate an idea into a reality,” said Mehul Patel, chairman of NewcrestImage.
The Embassy Suites will include an upscale full-service restaurant and lounge; 18,000 square feet of meeting space; an indoor swimming pool; complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast; spa; and a 24-hour fitness center. A 750-space parking garage is expected to be built immediately adjacent by the city.
Currently, NewcrestImage operates 16 hotels, with an additional 12 properties under construction or in development.
