In 2010, PHG developed and managed the successful conversion of the Radisson Market Square Hotel (which PHG had managed since 1992) to the new 250 Room Doubletree by Hilton San Antonio Downtown Hotel, bringing the hotel to new life, and a renewed management and license agreement.
The years 2013 – 2017 PHG continued its focus on new and future development, and a deeper relationship with Hilton hotels.
PHG took over the Embassy Suites McAllen Hotel, and developed/managed the successful conversion of this beautiful property to the new 262 suite Doubletree Suites by Hilton McAllen bringing the hotel to new life, and a renewed management and license agreement. The hotel’s restaurant, 2nd Street Bistro was recently featured in Texas Monthly, a big achievement for a hotel based Bistro.
PHG next developed a Hotel/Convention Center project in Live Oak, TX (North San Antonio) with the construction of the 138 room Hilton Garden Inn & Conference Center. PHG is the General Partner and manages this hotel. This venture was the first of many public/private partnerships for PHG and local municipalities developing hotels with conference centers. The Hilton Garden Inn Live Oak opened in January 2016.
In their second public/private partnership venture, PHG developed the 156 Suite Embassy Suites Hotel & Spa at Brooks City Base. The landmark project was visionary and pioneering; the first of what will be many projects in a partnership with Brooks Development Authority to bring additional investment to San Antonio’s Southeast Side. The hotel features 23,000 square feet of meeting space, a salon, and world-class spa with Salt Cave. The Embassy Suites Hotel & Spa at Brooks City Base opened in May of 2017.
Future development projects are underway, with the groundbreaking of a new construction 127-room boutique Doubletree Hotel & Conference Center in Boerne, Texas which is scheduled to open in December 2018. Other projects underway include an acquisition on the San Antonio Riverwalk, and a Coastal Resort Hotel with Marina under development on the Texas Gulf Coast.
