Hilton Palacio del Rio Renovation

Completed in the unprecedented time frame of 202 days, this 500 room, luxury hotel is a World Record holder in construction. Its unique design was achieved by stacking completely furnished, precast modular room units onto the poured in place concrete podium.

For its first major renovation, Zachry Construction Corporation selected Douglas Architects to lead the design and construction effort. This phased project consists of the interior renovation of all guest rooms, corridors, elevator lobbies, meeting rooms, ballrooms and prefunction areas. Douglas worked in tandem with the Hotel’s interior designer, Chase Collaborative, directing the effort to complete the renovation more efficiently and cost effectively.

Douglas Architects provided full design services for this project, as well as design services for the overall master plan of the Hotel.
