A hotel group based in Juarez has announced plans to renovate a nine-floor, 112-room Holiday Inn Express hotel in downtown El Paso.
The group purchased the structure last month.
Landstar Hotels owns other hotels in Ciudad Juarez and is also currently building a five-story, 100-room hotel some four blocks from the entrance of the El Paso International Airport.
Plans call for not only renovating the rooms at the Holiday Inn Express, located at 409 E. Missouri Avenue, but also updating the pool area, as well as several public spaces within the structure.
The group is expected to invest around $10 million on the project, which will include both the purchase of the hotel itself, as well as the costs of the planned renovations.
The hotel was for more than thirty years a Travelodge Central and underwent a $1 million remodeling in 2004.
The new upgrading and renovation is expected to begin later this spring.
