MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, a nationally recognized hotel owner and management company and division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE: MCS), today announced it has assumed management of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel El Paso Downtown in El Paso, Texas, effective April 4, 2018. The company has also been selected to manage the newly constructed Courtyard by Marriott El Paso Downtown/Convention Center, opening June 2018. The two hotels are located within the same block in downtown El Paso.
“We are excited to expand our footprint in the great state of Texas,” said Gregory S. Marcus, president and chief executive officer of The Marcus Corporation. “El Paso has so much to offer, including its strong business base, robust tourism and exceptional recreational, educational, athletic and retail opportunities. Both these properties are ideally located near the city’s convention and performing arts center, and Southwest University Park sports complex and event venue, and are poised to capture even greater share of the thousands of tourists and business people who travel to El Paso.”
More than 70 Fortune 500 companies have offices in El Paso. Located only five minutes from the Mexican border, the city is the second-busiest international crossing point in the U.S. for business and commerce. Situated in El Paso’s Museum District, near the city’s prominent convention and performing arts center, the 200-room DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel El Paso Downtown features a rooftop pool and sun deck with stunning views of the El Paso skyline, along with 8,500 square feet of meeting space that can accommodate small to large groups and weddings. The Fire Restaurant and Fire Bar is a full-service bar and restaurant serving Southwestern cuisine with craft cocktails, and offers live music throughout the week. The hotel also features a Mediterranean-inspired terrace bar, the Sunset Terrace, which offers specialty cocktails and brick-oven specialties along with a spectacular view of the El Paso skyline.
“We are thrilled to begin our partnership with Marcus Hotels & Resorts,” said Elma Carreto and Jim Scherr, owners of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel El Paso Downtown and the Courtyard by Marriott El Paso Downtown/Convention Center. “As El Paso residents and long-time owners of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel El Paso Downtown, we have been part of the city’s growth and see firsthand the demand from both business and leisure travelers. With Marcus Hotels & Resorts’ industry expertise and vast hotel management capabilities, we know our guests will enjoy their stay at both of our properties as they experience the most welcoming hospitality El Paso has to offer.”
The new 151-room, nine-story Courtyard by Marriott El Paso Downtown/Convention Center will feature the Courtyard by Marriott’s latest contemporary design, including an innovative lobby space and trendy, yet comfortable guest accommodations.
