City breaks ground for downtown Embassy Suites

AMARILLO, TX - Construction is now underway for the brand new Embassy Suites.

City officials and hotel developers broke ground at the new site on Buchanan street Friday morning.

Here's what you need to know about what this new hotel will offer:

  • 226 two-room and studio suites
  • Full service spa
  • Valet parking
  • Free cook-to-order breakfast
  • Complimentary cocktail reception every night
  • 18,000 square feet of conference space

City officials and executives from Newcrest Image, the developers for the hotel, believe that offering this ample conference space will attract more groups and companies to the city that have never come before.

Early in 2016, construction will begin for a parking garage directly across the street from the hotel.

The five story complex will hold approximately 750 parking spots, 150 of which will be leased by Embassy Suites.

Some spots will be leased for city offices for certain daytime hours, and the rest will be open to the public.
