LBA Hospitality, a full-scale hotel management, development and consulting firm, opened its Courtyard by Marriott Fort Worth Historic Stockyards on Feb. 2.

The opening of the 124-room hotel marks a milestone for Marriott, as it is its 1000th Courtyard by Marriott in The Americas.

Courtyard by Marriott Fort Worth Historic Stockyards is a landmark achievement for the Dothan, Ala.-based developer, Sunbelt Development LLC. Working together for nearly 25 years, this project is Sunbelt’s 50th hotel developed.

“It has been such an honor to be aligned with our other partners in Sunbelt,” said LBA’s president, Beau Benton. “We are eager to celebrate this milestone, especially when the end result is a unique, landmark hotel that has already brought more than 50 jobs to the area.”

Ownership group Apple Hospitality REIT tapped LBA to provide development and management services for the custom-designed hotel, which included the installation and training of the hotel’s leadership team and hiring of 22-year industry veteran Terri Elorreaga as general manager. According to a news release, Apple Hospitality REIT Inc., NYSE: APLE, acquired the 124-room Courtyard by Marriott Fort Worth Stockyards for $18 million.

Architects Bradley, Schmidt & Carn and designers from Studio3877 custom-designed the four-story property to reflect the area’s intersection of urban lifestyle and traditions of the Wild West by intertwining rope, weathered metal, wood and Western motifs throughout. The hotel remains true to the Courtyard brand’s features travelers have come to know and love, including a pool, fitness center, business center, outdoor lounge with fire pit, meeting space and in-house Bistro, which will serve breakfast and dinner daily.
