McAllen Convention Center Says Hello to $20 Million Hotel
McAllen can expect a new 150-room, full-service signature hotel at the Convention Center. This new contribution to the Valley stems from regional investment firm Goldstein Financial and their franchise approval from Hilton Worldwide. The $20 million six-story Embassy Suites will provide services such as an indoor pool/spa, a full restaurant, ballroom, executive meeting space, and more than 200 parking spaces.
It will also be within walking distance of the Convention Center and Palms crossing. Mayor Jim Darling says, "It's the first convention center major hotel project in South Texas." He adds he is appreciative of the firm investing in the city, and without taxpayer funded incentives. This TConstruction is expected to begin this fall.
