The addition of the DoubleTree hotel brings PMHS’ portfolio of managed hotels to approximately thirty hotels, including five new assignments in 2014 and development projects.
“This hotel, our sixth west of the Mississippi River, marks our first entry into the Dallas/Fort Worth market and furthers our effort to expand our presence in the Western United States,” said Joseph Bojanowski, president of PMHS. “As this is our 15th Hilton flagged hotel, we expect that it will immediately benefit from our deep familiarity with Hilton Worldwide and its numerous brands.”
Situated in Irving, Texas less than two miles from DFW Airport, the eight-story hotel is convenient to such companies as Allstate, Siemens, Verizon, AT&T, IMB and Microsoft.

We're very optimistic about this hotel and this market.”
