937 hotel rooms within one mile of convention center

Known for friendliness and being the only Texas city that can boast a mountain in the middle, El Paso is on its way to becoming America’s next great meeting and tournament destination. With a $500 million dollar quality of life bond and several privately-funded projects well underway, El Paso is experiencing unprecedented growth and substantial change unlike any other city on the nation. While the QOL Bond projects are scattered throughout the city, the majority are located in the heart of downtown within walking distance of the 133,000 square-foot El Paso Convention Center. Key developments include a new children’s museum; multi-purpose performing arts venue; Hispanic cultural center; new and improved parks; public art projects; public transportation in the form of refurbished street cars, dating back to the 1940s; and the first and only TouchCity Digital History Wall in the United States. Privately-funded projects include Southwest University Park, home to the El Paso Chihuahuas, Triple-A Baseball Team. In its inaugural year (2014), the ballpark was named “Ballpark of the Year” by baseballparks.com and Baseball Digest. There are also two major downtown hotel developments in the works; a 115-120 room Hotel Indigo set to open in the fall of 2015 and an Aloft Hotel to open by 2017. If you’ve never been to El Paso or haven’t visited in several years, you’ll definitely be surprised by what this dynamic, evolving city has to offer. You Better El Paso Up and experience it for yourself.
