COLLEGE STATION – Texas A&M has done a much better job in recent years of adding eye-catching architecture to the campus, what A&M’s forebearers from a half-century or so ago often didn’t do.
The latest example is springing up right across Joe Routt Boulevard from Kyle Field – the Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center. Fans who’ve been in town for football games this fall and who will be in town on Saturday for Alabama and A&M have seen and will see a glass-heavy structure where old Cain Hall used to reside.
The idea of the hotel is to provide Aggies and others close, comfortable access to Kyle Field, and give A&M what it hasn’t had of late: A central place for conferences and reunions, because until now those have been spread out around campus.
A Benchmark Resorts & Hotels Property to Open Fall of 2018
The Woodlands (Houston), Texas, January 2018 … BENCHMARK®, a global hospitality company, has added another prominent Texas property to its portfolio, Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center ( www.TexasAMHotelCC.com ). Currently under construction on the historic Texas A&M University campus in College Station, the new eight-story facility will offer 250 guest accommodations and suites, a formal restaurant, two-story bar and lounge, a gym and a business center. The hotel overlooks Kyle Field, site of numerous events and sports competitions, including the games of the fabled Texas “Aggies” football team. Alex Cabañas, CEO of Benchmark, made the announcement.
“Whoop! That’s Aggie for how excited I am to welcome this incredible project into Benchmark’s portfolio,” said Mr. Cabañas. “As a Texas A&M graduate, Class of 1998, it is a privilege to work with a world-class university that means so much to me, and to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience on the campus and within the Bryan/College Station community and the region.”
