The city of Grapevine has selected Coury Hospitality as the developer of its boutique hotel that will be built in historic downtown.


The hotel is part of the city’s plans to place transit-oriented development around its TEX Rail commuter station. Other plans include a parking garage, plaza and observation deck.


Grapevine City Manager Bruno Rumbelow said Coury Hospitality specializes in renovating historic buildings into boutique hotels that are rated 4 Diamonds by the American Automobile Association, which is one of the reasons they were selected.


“We went through a competitive selection process,” Rumbelow said. “We had five or six rise to the top, and out of those Coury Hospitality was the strongest competitor. They rose to the top for several reasons: one, their experience and proven track record with developing boutique hotels, and two, the idea of having a partner that we can trust to own and maintain the hotel was very appealing.”


The boutique hotel will be built next to the rail station’s parking garage at the northeast corner of Main Street and Dallas Road.


Coury Hospitality CEO and founder Paul Coury said although his company has hotels in Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas, this will be the first in Texas.


“Grapevine is an upcoming city, and [we thought] it’s a very intriguing project that the city is doing with the TEX Rail station and the garage, and we just thought it was something that fit our company profile.”


Coury said the hotel will feature between 110 and 125 rooms and have a 4-diamond rating.


“Most of our hotels are under a special Autograph Collection by Marriott,” he said. “We will be doing a similar lifestyle brand in Grapevine.”


Coury said Grapevine’s hotel will be different than any other project the company has.


“We develop each [hotel] uniquely, and each one tries to tell a story based on the area that it’s in and the things that are in the area that are relevant,” he said. “So as we develop the concept it will be relevant to Grapevine, the wine element and the Texas element as well as the railroad part of it. We have not developed a look yet, but it will evolve using those factors.”


Rumbelow said the city’s rail station including the parking garage will be complete by the end of 2018, with the other elements such as the hotel to follow shortly after.
