Dallas-based Gatehouse Capital on Monday opened a 132-suite hotel costing more than $21 million on the Dallas campus of Baylor University Medical Center.
The Home2 Suites By Hilton property, located on land being leased to Gatehouse by the Baylor Health Care System, has a staff that’s trained to handle the special circumstances of guests who may be dealing with family health crises.
The all-suites, extended-stay property was developed and is owned by Gatehouse Capital and is being managed by Plano-based Aimbridge Hospitality. The hotel offers modular furniture and fully equipped kitchens, a mini-market, complimentary breakfasts, a combined laundry and fitness area, and 5,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
“The Home2 Suites by Hilton is a great example of a successful collaboration between Gatehouse and a healthcare system,” Marty Collins, CEO of Gatehouse Capital, said in a release. “This property fills a need for the hospital and local community, and will be the gold standard for other hospital campuses across the country.”
The Home2 Suites by Hilton is the first hotel to be developed on a hospital campus by Gatehouse Capital. But the national real estate investment and development firm told D CEO Healthcare that it’s “working actively with a half-dozen hospitals in Dallas-Fort Worth, and is in active discussion with approximately 30 hospital firms nationally.”
