Plaza Hotel Pioneer Park, an iconic, 130-room hotel in downtown El Paso, Texas, completed its property-wide transformation. Excluding its original façade, almost all other areas of the Pueblo Deco property underwent a $78 million renovation, including guestrooms, public spaces and event space.
The property now boasts two upscale food and beverage concepts: Ámbar Restaurante, serving wood-fired Mexican cuisine, and La Perla, a rooftop bar and restaurant. The Pueblo Deco influence can be seen throughout the hotel’s interior.
“The hotel has undergone an incredible transformation that seamlessly melds our rich history with modern luxurious touches to create an entirely new experience. There is truly something for everyone here, and we are so proud to play an integral role in the revitalization of downtown El Paso,” said Wolfgang Jonas, general manager, The Plaza Hotel Pioneer Park.
The hotel originally opened its doors in November 1930 as the El Paso Hilton, and served as the corporate headquarters well into the 1940s.
