Many cities have so much history that you can’t help but feel it coursing throughout its streets—it’s almost palpable. In one of them, El Paso, Texas, every corner, resident and building have a story to tell, and each story is a piece to the puzzle and breathes life into the bigger picture. El Paso has much to say, and those who are willing to listen never cease to be amazed.
Hotels in El Paso have a history just as rich as the city itself. Many have been around since the early-20th century, and continue to thrive and tell the tale. One of these, Hotel Paso del Norte, continues to be a premier destination. Built in 1912, with 303 guest rooms and 48 suites, Hotel Paso del Norte impresses even those who have “seen it all.”
With more than 32,000 sq. ft. of event space and 17 meeting rooms, planners have plenty of room to create a memorable experience. And post-event options are in no short supply: Whether groups are looking to relax or delve into the history of the city, El Paso offers many activities for attendees to get involved.
Meetings can be hectic, often resulting in a severe need for rest, and there’s nothing like a little spa treatment during morning or afternoon breaks to take the edge off. Hotel Paso’s 10th floor features Hotel PDN Spa, as well as guided meditation tours and a full-service salon, where guests can receive exceptional treatment, from head-to-toe.
Many more services and treatments await attendees, including a luxury hydrafacial menu that uses a hydro tip and serums to hydrate, plump and exfoliate the skin; hair and scalp treatments; body wraps and full-body treatments, which use the indigenous ingredients of El Paso to calm the body and mind.
While well-known for its Mexican cuisine, as it sits close to the U.S.-Mexico border, it would be remiss to neglect the city’s other offerings, such as 1700º, Hotel Paso’s chophouse. There, guests can indulge in exceptional Texas-style steak and even more fine-dining options.
There’s no shortage of fun to be had in El Paso. Whether your group is looking to shop, dine or just get active, Hotel Paso’s staff has got you covered. Staff members are more than employees: They’re ambassadors of the city, ready to help guests experience not only the hotel, but also El Paso in its entirety. Nearby are several museums that touch on distinct sections of El Paso history—El Paso Museum of Art, El Paso Museum of History and Museum of the Revolution on the Frontier in Juarez, Mexico (across the border from El Paso).
El Paso del Norte can’t help but make an impression on its visitors. If held there, your next event will create a lasting memory and yet another story to be told.
