Embassy Suites by Hilton announced today the opening of Embassy Suites by Hilton McAllen Convention Center. Situated in the heart of fast-growing McAllen, and just a short walk from the convention center for which it is named, the contemporary property offers the largest, full-service event space in the City of Palms.
Just three miles from McAllen Miller International Airport, and in close proximity to manufacturing facilities in nearby Mexico, Embassy Suites by Hilton McAllen Convention Center is a convenient respite for business travelers as well as tourists visiting the numerous Rio Grande Valley attractions. The hotel's contemporary design represents aspects of local culture, and several large art pieces capture the area's tropical environment. Embassy Suites by Hilton McAllen Convention Center is owned and managed by Perspective Hospitality.
