Lightbulb HOUSTON | Hampton Inn / Homewood Suites | 192 FT / 52 M | 14 FLOORS

Value-priced Hotels Planned for Houston Convention District

The area around the George R. Brown Convention Center is about to see a burst of hotel construction as developers plan several new projects, two of which will offer more moderately priced rooms.

The new projects are planned for sites just outside the convention center's front doors, making this the most active period for hotel construction in this part of downtown in a decade.

Houston hotel firm American Liberty Hospitality is planning a 300-room property along Crawford between Capitol and Rusk.

The 14-story building will have two brands under the same roof: a Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites.

The two hotels, known nationally for their value pricing, will help serve price-sensitive travelers, whether they're coming downtown for a business meeting or the annual quilt show.

"We are trying to bring a variety of room types to the convention district," developer Nick Massad Jr., president and CEO of Houston-based American Liberty Hospitality, said of the $50 million project.

American Liberty Hospitality expects to break ground early next year on its dual-branded hotel and open it by September 2015.

Running two hotel brands in a single structure benefits the operator financially through shared expenses, said hotel consultant Randy McCaslin.

It looks like there will be three hotels on the block, which I guess would include the Hyatt House.

The building currently on the site (1515 Rusk) was recently listed on the daily demolition report.

That would have been a pretty cool dormer on top of the automotive building.

This will bring much needed hotel rooms and density to the area. Great project!

From the 609 cam, it looks like they installed a base for the crane.
