Amarillo, Texas - Lots of people escaped Saturday night's brutally cold weather by going inside downtown Amarillo's brand new hotel... The Courtyard Marriott.

It was a grand opening party... After more than a year of planning and building, the historic Fisk Building on 8th and Polk opened up to guests... On the same day the building itself turns 80.

Among those in attendance was the grand daughter of Mr. Fisk himself... She made the trip to see the new life breathed into her Grandpa's building.

In honor of the first night open, all profits from the room rates will be donated to Center City.
