EL PASO, Texas – — People now have an idea of what the renovation to the historic Hotel Paso Del Norte will look like.
The Meyers Group and Two Sabes LLC revealed finalized renderings of the hotel Thursday.
Renovations will be made to 356 hotel rooms and suites, the second-floor ballroom and the conference rooms.
The ballroom will lead into the original 10th floor rooftop, which will have a pool lounge area, luxurious full-service span and state-of-the-art gym, the Meyers Group said. The bar room next to the rooftop terrace will be expanded to overlook panoramic views of the Franklin Mountains, the historic Rio Grande and the Mexican border.
Local In Situ architect William C. Helm is collaborating with Kobi Karp Architecture and Interior Design on the project.
“The unique vision of restoring and renovating this storied hotel is inspired by the rich, historic architecture and material details of the 100-year-old hotel,” said Kobi Karp, founder and principal at Kobi Karp Architecture and Design. “Using the natural materials of white terra-cotta, red brick, natural vein stone marble, and deep three-dimensional plaster reliefs as the inspiration for the cutting-edge interior design of the building. Every detail in the hotel speaks of the rich history and stories of the past through the interior design of the largest building in historic downtown El Paso.”
The hotel, known as the Camino Real, will reopen under the hotel’s historic name, Hotel Paso Del Norte.
Renovations at the hotel began earlier this month.
