NewcrestImage Opens Hyatt Place in Amarillo, Texas

USA, Amarillo, Texas. January 13, 2020

NewcrestImage continues to add to its portfolio with the opening of a 91-room, 4-floor Hyatt Place in western Amarillo. This is the company's fourth hotel in Amarillo, with a total of 514 rooms in operation in the city.

The Hyatt Place is the second property of a three-hotel, 300-room "hotel campus" located on a five-acre site. The other hotels are a 90-room, 4-floor Tru by Hilton that opened in August of 2018 and a 90-room, 4-floor Aloft, a Marriott brand, that is scheduled to begin construction by mid-year of 2020.

The hotel complex is located in the heart of the city's medical district at the intersection of I-40 Frontage Road and South Soncy Road, which the Texas Department of Transportation describes as among Amarillo's busiest junctions.

"We offer travelers three distinctive hotel experiences and styles at a single, high-visibility, high-traffic location," explained Mehul Patel, Chairman and CEO of NewcrestImage.

The company owns and operates two other properties in Amarillo, both in the dynamic downtown area: an award-winning 107-room, 10-floor Courtyard by Marriott that opened in 2011 in the city's historic Fisk Building and a 226-room, 6-floor Embassy Suites that opened in December of 2017 directly across from the Amarillo Civic Center complex.

The Embassy Suites is in the process of adding a 118-seat upscale Las Brisas Southwest Steakhouse and will also add a Starbucks that is part of an agreement reached by NewcrestImage earlier this year to add coffee shops at four of its hotels.

Hotel Group Meetings: Spirit of Innovation


Naturally, the Hotel Group Meeting business has been rocked during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the effects may be felt for years to come. But according to planners, there is pent-up demand for hotels to resume this area of their business and savvy hoteliers are being exceptionally creative in making that possible. The key is successfully implementing all recommended safety guidelines. For example, in addition to social and physical distancing, some planners are utilizing assigned seating as a way to keep people from using multiple seats and tables throughout an event. Some planners have also initiated a color-coded bracelet system that indicates the wearer's confidence level about being physically approached. Hybrid meetings are also increasingly popular, where some attendees join in person and others are looped in virtually. Other hotels have instituted a "bubble" approach, dedicating an entire wing to smaller groups, essentially walling them off from any health risks outside their area. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to address these concerns so that the group meeting business can safely resume.
