Under new management

Properties in Iowa and Texas are under new management, with The Indigo Road Hospitality Group (IRHG) adding hotels and Pathfinder Hospitality taking over properties.

IRHG assumes management of historic hotel in Iowa
IRHG has assumed management of The Historic Park Inn Hotel in Mason City, IA, including the management of the on-site restaurant and bar. Details on a new restaurant concept and name are expected early in 2022.

Completed in 1910 and originally part of a larger property, which included the City National Bank and law offices, the hotel is the last remaining hotel in the world designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright—according to the company—who’s known for playing a key role in what came to be the Prairie School movement of architecture. The original property, which has undergone several major renovations over the years, and a $25-million preservation and restoration project by Wright on the Park, a local non-profit organization, was restored to a working 27-room hotel and events center in 2011. The hotel is in proximity to the Dr. G.C. Stockman House, which Wright designed and built in 1908 for Dr. George C. and Eleanor Stockman. Both properties are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the official list of historic places worthy of preservation in the U.S., and were designed in the Prairie School style Wright pioneered.

Pathfinder adds two Wyndham hotels
Pathfinder Hospitality, a hotel development and third-party management company based in Austin has added the La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Brookshire—West Katy and the Wyndham Garden Houston Willowbrook to its growing portfolio of management contracts.

La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Brookshire—West Katy has 55 rooms, meeting space, a backyard with pool, jacuzzi, pergola and grill. Wyndham Garden Houston Willowbrook has 155 rooms, an indoor heated pool & jacuzzi, a full-service bar/restaurant, and is located near many corporations and attractions.

This marks the seventh and eighth hotel additions managed by Pathfinder.
