Hotel Paso del Norte Names New General Manager

The management team that will run the newly renovated Hotel Paso del Norte has added another member. James A. Perricone has been named the hotel’s new General Manager.

Perricone comes to El Paso from his previous position of Corporate Task Force General Manager for Interstate Hotels and Resorts. In that position, he also served as General Manager of the five-star London NYC hotel, a 562-room resort and luxury hotel.

Under Perricone’s direction, the hotel was voted one of the Top 10 hotels in New York.

Perricon’s previous work includes General Manager and Food and Beverage Director duties at various hotels throughout the U.S., including Albuquerque; Bethesda, Maryland.; and West Palm Beach, Florida.

As the Corporate Program Director of Food and Beverage for the U.S. Army and Department of Defense, he not only oversaw various hotels and resorts for military personnel, he also helped execute President Barack Obama’s Inauguration Ball in 2009.

Perricone is no stranger to opening new hotels. As a General Manager for Marriott and Hilton hotels, he opened six new hotels and was nominated for Marriot’s General Manager of the Year award. He was named Manager of the Quarter for Marriott Southeast Region.

The hotel is located at 101 South El Paso St. in Downtown El Paso.  Visit for more information on the new hotel, and visit,  for information on the brand.

Local Developers Plan Long-Awaited Rebirth of Hotel Paso del Norte in Downtown

The Hotel Paso del Norte, one of the most important historic buildings in the Southwest, will be renovated and restored as part of a plan announced Tuesday by local developers, Meyers Group and Two Sabes LLC.

The hotel has been operated as the Camino Real Hotel by Grupo Empresarial Angeles of Mexico City. The hotel is located at 101 South El Paso Street in Downtown El Paso.

During Tuesday’s City Council meeting,  Council approved a term sheet that will allow City staff to move forward with the incentive process for a private redevelopment project that will revitalize the historical downtown Camino Real Hotel into a convention hotel.

“Since opening in 1912, the Hotel Paso del Norte has served as an iconic landmark welcoming visitors to Downtown El Paso,” said Josh Meyers, Vice President of the Meyers Group. “We are humbled to help this city reclaim its place as the premier city in the American Southwest by breathing new life into this architectural treasure.”

The term sheet not only allows staff to develop a 380 agreement with the private investor, Meyers Group Acquisitions, but it allows the investor to begin work on this redevelopment project.

“This revitalization project has been a long time coming,” El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser said.  “I’m proud to say that this is not only a City initiative, but an initiative that includes our partners at the County and State level. This project is going to be key to our redevelopment efforts of downtown and is definitely a catalyst for our continued economic growth here in the El Paso region.”

paso del norteThe redevelopment will be lead by the Meyers Group and Two Sabes LLC. Meyers Group is also developing Shadow Mountain Tower in West El Paso. Two Sabes is lead by Richard Aguilar of EPT Land Communities, which is developing Montecillo in West El Paso.

“While this project signifies the importance of El Paso’s rich history, it also signifies the optimism we all feel about El Paso’s future,” Meyers said. “Significant Downtown investments — both public and private — have created an environment in which projects like this one make good business sense for investors and developers.”

The hotel, which sits in the heart of downtown, is expected to see a $70 million renovation and transformation into a much garnered convention hotel. The City of El Paso, the County of El Paso, and the State of Texas are anticipated to assist in this redevelopment project by providing incentives totaling $34 million in State and local taxes.

“A lot of hard work with a strong team has taken place to make this project a reality,” said City Manager Tommy Gonzalez. “This project includes a return on investment clause that pays the City a percentage of the net profits in perpetuity. When completed, the convention hotel will bring even greater opportunities to our already thriving downtown.”

The Hotel Paso del Norte was designed by architect Henry C. Trost and built by Zachary T. White. When it opened in 1912, constructionlobby cost about $1 million.

The hotel was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 and features a 25-foot- diameter stained glass dome reputedly created by famed American artist Louis C. Tiffany.

Guests reported to have stayed at the hotel include U.S. Gen. John J. “Black Jack” Pershing, Mexican Gen. Álvaro Obregón Salido, famed aviator Amelia Earhart, and then-Vice President Richard Nixon.

A final incentive agreement is expected to be brought back to the El Paso City Council in September for approval.
