Quite the makeover. I'm looking forward to seeing this finished, with the two residential units next door.

I'm a little disappointed, it would've been cool to see 3 different eras of architecture on one block. But it's is definitely an improvement.

I think it is actually reducing the number of rooms (just a little bit) but no doubt will be an improvement over the previous form and function. 

 

What's the latest on the thin high rise hotel that someone (I think Austin 55?) posted?  Want to say it is around 8th & Houston Streets.   Had a Marriott (Residence?) flag on it. 

 

WE NEED MORE GOOD (AND ESPECIALLY INTERESTING) HOTEL ROOMS DOWNTOWN AND IN THE CULTURAL DISTRICT.

The new skinny Marriott is still just a drawing on paper at this point. No real announcements yet.

As for the hotels in the Cultural District, you still have that unused land (being used as a parking lot now, but still...) that West 7th is supposed to use as one and that strip mall on the main intersection that could be replaced...

Here is a handy guide to all known (and some unkown) hotel proposals for downtown.

Excellent production.  Thanks for making it much easier to follow all of the exciting hospitality developments. :)  :)

Excellent work, Austin.  However, you have a misspelled word.  The word "relevant" has the "e" and the "a" transposed.

The old Park Central motel is fenced off and undergoing renovations now, so its status can be changed to "construction."

Just thinking.  The latest count for boutique hotels is now four:  Stockyards Hotel (existing); Museum Place (in planning/design); Near South/Magnolia (in planning/design) and Sundance Square (proposed).

 

How very exciting. :wub:

 

Excuse my oversight, the Ashton (existing)  should be included among this group of hotels.

Rumor is on the street that the Fairfield Inn & Suites will open in about two weeks.  Below is a photograph of the renovation, and nearly finished product.

The architecture has very nice textural face.  Its as though there are multiple buildings to the block.  The Butch Cassidy Statue will become an instant photo shop.

I agree. I had some friends in town and we stopped by the Wild Bunch statue and they were in instagram heaven. I wish there was some way to incorporate the plaza on 9th & Throckmorton better so that it becomes a gathering place. Does anyone know if Fairfield will have a restaurant on the plaza?

I tried looking in the windows today, and I couldn't see much.  I did notice the doors on Houston appear to align with the doors (or windows) on Throckmorton.  There is some kind of open space on that Throckmorton end of the building, but I really couldn't tell about the function.

Yesterday, after the walking tour, I went inside to take a look.  The interior is a big improvement over the incredibly small lobby of the old Park Central.  The restaurant dining room is still there on the west side of the building, but they are only serving continental breakfasts.  The lobby does have a nice bar taking up the middle of the first floor.
