MARFA, TX—Presidian Hotels, a full-service hotel management company based in San Antonio has taken over management of the Hotel Saint George located here.
Located at 105 South Highland Ave., Hotel Saint George opened its doors in April. Originally built on the footprint of the 1886 hotel of the same name, Saint George is the re-imagining of Marfa’s original property, which was demolished and replaced in 1929.
Today, the hotel embodies the town’s authentic artistic culture and sensibility, according to the company. It features a collection of contemporary artwork contributed by major names in the art world, including pieces from Christopher Wool, Mark Flood and Jeff Elrod—interspersed with fixtures and furnishing from local and regional makers.
The full-service property offers modern amenities and includes 55 rooms; LaVenture, a restaurant helmed by Texas-native Chef Allison Jenkins; a large lobby and bar; and the return of the Marfa Book Company. Across the street is Saint George Hall, which includes an event space for large-scale gatherings, an outdoor seating area that doubles as Marfa’s farmers market and two forthcoming venues—a casual Mexican restaurant and an outdoor pool and bar.
