The Hilton Beachfront Resort Santa Barbara California is planning an 80-room expansion to the already existing 360 guest room hotel. The plan also includes an adult pool, spa, fire pit, lounge and bar. The main area for the expansion will be in the Northwest corner of the site by Calle Cesar Chavez Street and Cabrillo Boulevard. Drawings have been submitted to the City of Santa Barbara’s Historic Landmarks Commission for a review. The property was opened in 1986 by the late actor Fess Parker in collaboration with the Red Lion Hotel chain. It went through an extensive community review and a legal challenge. Mountain views were a key concern from the community members pushing back against the size and scale of the hotel. The plan also included the development of the Chase Palm Park extension and an open space nearby where another hotel has been in the planning stages for years. The hotel went through $14-million in renovations in 2018 when it was rebranded as the Hilton Beachfront Resort.

Hotel developer Blue Print Hospitality led by CEO Kunal Mody plans a complete renovation of the historic Herring Hotel in Amarillo Texas. Sandvick Architects has been selected to design the renovation which would be complete over the next three years. The hotel will feature a fully-renovated collection of 250 guest rooms and amenities. The hotel will also feature a rooftop lounge, business facilities, event ballrooms, restaurants, coffee shop, and retail options along with modernized amenities. The Herring Hotel was one of three oil-boom era hotels built in the 1920s. It was the largest of these types of hotels, and home to the Old Tascosa Room, where cattle and oil barons gathered to discuss business and unwind. The Old Tascosa Room featured western frescoes painted by noted muralist and artist H.D. Bugbee. Only one of the frescoes is intact after a water main flooded the basement several years ago. The hotel’s 14 stories and 600 hotel rooms made it the largest of the 1920s era buildings. Its builder, Cornelius Taylor Herring was a pioneer, cattleman, oilman and banker. He also owned 98,000 acres of the LS Ranch north of Amarillo. The Hotel was converted into federal office space in the early 1970s, but was abandoned a short time later.
