The Meyers Group has selected InterServ, a Los Angeles-based construction company, to oversee the restoration of the landmark Hotel Paso Del Norte in Downtown El Paso.
Florida-based Meyers Group and its local partner Two Sabes LLC purchased the property in October 2016 and announced it will spend $70 million in private investment to restore the century-old hotel.
“There is an intense sense of responsibility when it comes to restoring a historic landmark, one that was built in the early 1900s,” InterServ Managing Partner Eli Tene said in a statement. “We are honored to be a part of this special project and can’t wait to unveil the final product next year.”
Formerly known as the Camino Real Hotel, the hotel will become a Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel when renovations are complete next year, according to the Meyers Group. It remains open during renovations.
InterServ, founded in 1986, has led the construction and renovation of hotels across the country, including Park Central Hotel and W Hotel in New York City as well as Ritz-Carlton Laguna, Fairmont Dallas and Disneyworld resorts.
The company is responsible for the reconstruction of the hotel’s 344 guest rooms. The work also includes the renovation of the historic dome bar, lobby and lounge areas as well as the construction of a new gym, steak house restaurant and outdoor courtyard, according to the Meyers Group.
“The Hotel Paso Del Norte is a beloved historical landmark in Downtown El Paso, and restoring a property like this requires diligence and commitment,” said Stuart Meyers, CEO of the Meyers Group. “We look to the expertise of the InterServ team as they breathe new life into the hotel, and we can’t wait to reintroduce it to Downtown El Paso next year.”
Located in the Downtown Historic District at 101 S. El Paso, the hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
