Prism Hotels and Resorts Engaged to Manage Two Hilton Brand Hotels

Prism's portfolio continues to grow with the addition of Hilton Garden Inn Fort Worth Alliance Airport and Home2 Suites by Hilton Baytown

DALLAS, TX. August 9, 2017 – Prism Hotels and Resorts, an award-winning full-service hotel management, investment, and advisory services company, announced today that it will serve as the management company for two Hilton branded properties: Hilton Garden Inn Fort Worth Alliance Airport and Home2 Suites by Hilton Baytown in Baytown, Texas. Prism Hotels and Resorts’ President and CEO Steve Van made the announcement.

“Our team is off and running at these two great Hilton properties. Both hotels are reflective of our track record of working with entrepreneurial owners who have hotel properties in their asset portfolios and need a strong management partner,” Van said. “Entrepreneurs are in a class all of their own. We speak their language and understand that they expect us to be nimble and deliver results quickly, which we absolutely do.”

The 127-room Hilton Garden Inn Fort Worth Alliance Airport hotel, located at 2600 WestPort Parkway in Fort Worth, Texas, will offer guests a modern hotel option near downtown Fort Worth. Conveniently located one mile from the Fort Worth Alliance Airport and minutes from downtown, the hotel features 2,475 square feet of flexible meeting space, an outdoor pool and whirlpool, breakfast, dinner and room service options at their Garden Grill, and a bar and lounge. The hotel also features self-adjustable Garden Sleep System® beds in every room.

Prism has also been retained to manage the brand new 96-room Home2 Suites by Hilton Baytown, one of Hilton’s newest properties, at which they served as project manager during the hotel’s development. The hotel has met the growing demand for new lodging in the Greater Houston area, which saw a record-breaking 20 million visitors in 2016. The hotel offers all-suite accommodations with fully equipped kitchens and modular furniture, providing guests with a range of value, tech-focused and eco-conscious amenities. The pet-friendly hotel features communal spaces, Spin2 Cycle, Home2 MKT for grab-and-go items, and Inspired Table for a complimentary daily breakfast.

Located off Interstate 10 at 7512 Garth Road, Home2 Suites by Hilton Baytown offers guests convenient access to ExxonMobil’s offices and is in within walking distance to several nearby Baytown restaurants.

Prism recently announced securing the management as well as the advisory and pre-opening services for another Hilton property—the DoubleTree by Hilton Lubbock – University Area in Lubbock, Texas. Currently under development and set to open in summer of 2018, the 140-room hotel is another example of Prism’s work with entrepreneurial owners nationally.

Coming Up In The November Online Hotel Business Review

Feature Focus
Architecture & Design: Authentic, Interactive and Immersive
If there is one dominant trend in the field of hotel architecture and design, it’s that travelers are demanding authentic, immersive and interactive experiences. This is especially true for Millennials but Baby Boomers are seeking out meaningful experiences as well. As a result, the development of immersive travel experiences - winery resorts, culinary resorts, resorts geared toward specific sports enthusiasts - will continue to expand. Another kind of immersive experience is an urban resort – one that provides all the elements you'd expect in a luxury resort, but urbanized. The urban resort hotel is designed as a staging area where the city itself provides all the amenities, and the hotel functions as a kind of sophisticated concierge service. Another trend is a re-thinking of the hotel lobby, which has evolved into an active social hub with flexible spaces for work and play, featuring cafe?s, bars, libraries, computer stations, game rooms, and more. The goal is to make this area as interactive as possible and to bring people together, making the space less of a traditional hotel lobby and more of a contemporary gathering place. This emphasis on the lobby has also had an associated effect on the size of hotel rooms – they are getting smaller. Since most activities are designed to take place in the lobby, there is less time spent in rooms which justifies their smaller design. Finally, the wellness and ecology movements are also having a major impact on design. The industry is actively adopting standards so that new structures are not only environmentally sustainable, but also promote optimum health and well- being for the travelers who will inhabit them. These are a few of the current trends in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
