As first reported by El Paso Inc., the hotel project is led by Jim Scherr, the lawyer and businessman behind the renovation of the crumbling and vacant International Hotel into the Doubletree Hotel, just block away from the new Courtyard project.
The hotel will have 151 rooms, according to El Paso Inc. The rendering of the hotel shows a four-level garage and five upper levels for rooms. A lobby is located on the ground floor.
A deck-top pool area can be seen in the image, above the parking garage. The hotel will be located at the corner of Santa Fe Street and Wyoming Ave.
