After more than three years of a sometimes troubled, multimillion-dollar renovation, the 107-year-old Hotel Paso del Norte has opened.
The 351-room, Marriott Autograph Collection hotel had been scheduled to reopen in 2018, but the project was delayed by construction problems and COVID-19 business restrictions.
The hotel opened at 11 a.m., Oct. 8. A ribbon-cutting event is scheduled Oct. 15 at the hotel, located at South El Paso Street and San Antonio Avenue in Downtown.
“Once in a great while, you happen upon a place that captures time and everything that is good about life. That’s the feeling people (will) experience” at the hotel, Carlos Sarmiento, the hotel general manager, said in a statement.
