DePalma Hotels & Resorts Completes $2M Conversion in Texas

ARLINGTON, TX—DePalma Hotels & Resorts has completed a $2-million renovation and repositioning of the former America’s Best Inn & Suites in Abilene, TX, to a Signature Inn. The Signature Inn Abilene is located near Dyess Air Force Base.

The renovation of the 106-guestroom hotel took nine months. All areas of the hotel were updated, including the guestrooms and meeting space. All of the hotel’s guestrooms include free WiFi, flat-panel televisions, microwaves and refrigerators.

Brian DePalma, CEO of DePalma Hotels said:  “It’s gratifying to see the transition of this property to a Signature Inn. As both the hotel renovation project manager as well as the ongoing hotel operator for the hotel, all of us at DePalma made sure we did everything possible during the remodeling to ensure we exceed the expectations of our guests.”

“Signature is so different than any other hotel brand out there,” said Roger Bloss, CEO of Vantage Hospitality Group. “Instead of a cookie-cutter hotel brand, where everything is the same no matter which location you stay, we encourage our owners to put their own style on their hotels, a style that embraces the local community and culture. This allows our guests to seek out a unique experience at each and every Signature.  The DePalma team has done an amazing job of transforming the hotel into something very special and we are thrilled to have them in the Vantage Hotels family.”
