DMD Offers Opportunity to Explore Downtown Hotels, Sample Foods, Win Prizes

For the last two years the Downtown Management District (DMD) and its Downtown Living Tour have provided the public an opportunity to take a first-hand look at some of the Downtown El Paso (DTEP) living options.

This year, on Saturday, April 6, 2019 from 11am-4pm, the DMD is shifts the focus to downtown’s growing number of hotel properties with the aptly named the ‘Downtown Hotel Tour.’  Early Bird tickets for the tour are $15 each now through March 30th, with cost going up to $20 starting April 1st (quantities are limited).

This event will provide participants an exclusive opportunity to visit and tour numerous downtown hotels, sample a variety of downtown food options, and have a chance to win great prizes.

“The Downtown Living Tour has been a major success for our organization and for exposing downtown residential options to our community, however with the recent and continued growth in our downtown hotel inventory, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show off these assets to community!” said DMD Executive Director Joe Gudenrath.

“El Pasoans will be amazed with the quality, history, culture and atmosphere of our hotels and the opportunities they present for out of town guests, staycations, meetings, events, dinner, drinks or a night out.”

The DMD has worked with local hoteliers to showcase a great roster of hotel brands that will appeal to the visitor and “stay-cationer” alike.

Participating Hotels include:

  • Aloft El Paso Downtown, 303 Texas Avenue
  • Stanton House, 209 N. Stanton Street
  • Hotel Indigo El Paso Downtown, 325 N. Kansas Street
  • Gardner Hotel, 311 E. Franklin Avenue
  • Holiday Inn Express El Paso-Central, 409 E. Missouri Avenue
  • Hotel Paso del Norte Autograph Collection, 101 S. El Paso Street
  • Courtyard El Paso Downtown/Convention Center, 610 N. Santa Fe Street

Each participant will receive their credentials, a map, prize entry forms and a day pass for the Streetcar system.  From there, the tour is up to them and hotels will be available for touring from 11am – 4pm.

Food and drink samples will be available at each location from the hotels themselves and some of downtown’s delicious eateries. Each location will also provide participants the opportunity to enter into drawings for prizes, including sets of luggage, gift cards and the grand prize – a $500 gift certificate to Southwest Airlines.

Participants will be asked to pick up their tickets prior to starting the tour.  There are three options for ticket pick up:

  1. From April 1st – 5th, from 8am to 5pm at the DMD Offices (201 E. Main, Suite 107).
  2. On April 5th from 4-8pm at Aloft El Paso Downtown (303 Texas Avenue).
  3. On Friday, April 6th, between 9am-12pm at one of two locations (The District Coffee Co.-222 Texas Avenue, OR Brew Lab-601 N. Oregon Street).

Tickets are available now and can be purchased online.

Hotel Indigo opens in Downtown El Paso

Painted on the back wall of the Old DeSoto Hotel, facing the brand new Hotel Indigo El Paso Downtown, is a message that not only reaches across the alley, but time as well: “Newly Remodeled  & Refurnished.”

IMAG0495Never was there a truer ad posted in the Heart of El Paso.

Located at 301 Main, the newly renovated hotel proudly adds both El Paso and Downtown to its name as a means of tying the past and future of the facility together.

Like a “Mad Men” set brought to life, the old Downtown Motor Inn, now hosts its first guests in years.

During Thursday’s official grand opening, General Manager Miguel Diaz proudly escorted a small press contingent around the newly-reopened hotel.

Sporting colors directly from the crayon box that is El Paso and design touches from the city’s heyday as a manufacturing and railroad hub, the Indigo bridges the gap between the 20th Century and the 21st Century.

As guests arrive on the 5th floor, they are greeted with a panorama of the city’s retail and hotel history, a continuum of buildings from each decade of the 20th Century. The hotel stands out among the group – with gleaming metal, colorful window tint and design details from around the region.

While Thursday was the first official opening of the hotel, guests have been staying there for a few weeks during the soft opening. One family from Australia, who were making their way across the Southwest, found the Indigo and had nothing but praise for the city’s new lodging option.

Diaz shares, “So this family had just arrived from a trip through and around Marfa – and they’ve traveled around the world and stayed at other Hotel Indigo properties – and they were just blown away by what we’ve got here in El Paso.”

From the rooftop pool, to the Mixology bar, to the conference rooms and work out areas, guests are treated to amenities far-removed from the typical hotel. Once guests head upstairs to their rooms, those amenities continue, as does the theme of the Borderland.

The hallways are a combination of desert brown walls, turquoise and black accented carpet and individual room numbers, forged in steel with a mini planter – overflowing with replicas of Chihuahuan Desert flora.

All the rooms, be they the king, queen double or the suite, are replete with echos and items from around the area. Here a full metal desk, made in Fabens; there a series of photos of Singer Sewing Machines that were once built but blocks from the hotel. The bathroom doors – a perfect replica of a Southern Pacific box car door – effortlessly sliding to reveal a clean, ultra modern bathroom.
