Prism Hotels and Resorts, a full-service hotel management, investment and advisory services company, revealed it will be managing three properties owned the United Brotherhood of Carpenters: the group's International Training Center, a Homewood Suites by Hilton and a Tru by Hilton, all located in Las Vegas. Prism Hotels and Resorts’ president and CEO Steve Van made the announcement.
The International Training Center was developed as a training facility for members of the UBC. The over 1-million-square-foot center consists of 300 dorm-style rooms, a 24-hour cafeteria and refreshment bar, banquet and event space, lounge, extensive classrooms, theaters and training venues, as well as recreational facilities. The ITC attendees have full access to facilities and amenities.
The 147-room Homewood Suites by Hilton is a renovated property located in the Marnell Corporate Center near McCarran Center and Town Square, located 5 miles away from the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Tru by Hilton, which is currently under development, will open in December 2017 and consist of 160 guestrooms, with the property also serving as an overflow venue for the ITC. When completed, the new Tru by Hilton will provide guests with reimagined public spaces and an open lobby.
“This is a really unique opportunity for us to work with United Brotherhood of Carpenters for these three Vegas properties,” Van said in a statement. “Our team is looking forward to delivering a best-in-class hospitality experience that we are recognized for. As we continue to expand our portfolio in 2017, these properties made strategic sense for us as we increase our footprint and continue working with great owners all over the country.”
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters is one of North America’s largest building-trades unions, with nearly a half-million members in the construction and wood-products industries.
