Arlington, Texas. – 16 March 2016: Arlington, Texas based DePalma Hotels & Resorts announced today that they have completed a $2M renovation and repositioning of the former America’s Best Inn & Suites in Abilene, Texas to a Signature Inn.
The Signature Inn Abilene is located just minutes from the prime business generators in Abilene, Texas including being the closest hotel to Dyess Air Force Base. Completion of the extensive renovation of the 106 room hotel took nine months and updated all areas of the hotel, guest rooms and the extensive hotel meeting space. All of the Signature Inn guestrooms include free ultra-broadband wifi Internet access, flat-panel televisions, microwaves, refrigerators and plush bedding. The hotel has added a welcoming outdoor pool area as well as a complimentary breakfast daily for all Signature Inn guests.
Brian DePalma, President & CEO of DePalma Hotels noted: “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, founder, president and 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.”
