The Courtyard Amarillo Downtown, a Marriott Hotels & Resorts’ property, has opened in the redeveloped Fisk Building. The hotel is located on Polk Street, Amarillo’s historic main street, and is centrally located near several restaurants and clubs, the Amarillo Civic Center and the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts. The new hotel boasts 107 suites and traditional guestroom;, a 24-hour business center; casual entertainment in the lobby restaurant and bar; a free-parking garage for guests; a GoBoard digital concierge service for guests; and more.

The entire project cost approximately $12.7 million, which represents the largest private investment in Amarillo’s central business district in more than 40 years. It received $1.7 million in assistance from the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone, which was established to provide incentives for downtown development.

“The Courtyard by Marriott at the Fisk will not only be the premier place to stay while doing business or visiting downtown [Amarillo], but it will also be a great example of historic preservation of one of [the city’s] finest buildings,” said Beth Duke, executive director of Center City of Amarillo.
