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 September Online Hotel Business Review

Hotel Group Meetings: Blue Skies Ahead
After a decade of sacrifice and struggle, it seems that hotels and meeting planners have every reason to be optimistic about the group meeting business going forward. By every industry benchmark and measure, 2017 is shaping up to be a record year, which means more meetings in more locations for more attendees. And though no one in the industry is complaining about this rosy outlook, the strong demand is increasing competition among meeting planners across the board – for the most desirable locations, for the best hotels, for the most creative experiences, for the most talented chefs, and for the best technology available. Because of this robust demand, hotels are in the driver’s seat and they are flexing their collective muscles. Even though over 100,000 new rooms were added last year, hotel rates are expected to rise by a minimum of 4.0%, and they are also charging fees on amenities that were often gratis in the past. In addition, hotels are offering shorter lead times on booking commitments, forcing planners to sign contracts earlier than in past years. Planners are having to work more quickly and to commit farther in advance to secure key properties. Planners are also having to meet increased attendee expectations. They no longer are content with a trade show and a few dinners; they want an experience. Planners need to find ways to create a meaningful experience to ensure that attendees walk away with an impactful memory. This kind of experiential learning can generate a deeper emotional connection, which can ultimately result in increased brand recognition, client retention, and incremental sales. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group business and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
