Hotels. Retail centers. Condominiums. Apartments. Since the mid-60s, we’ve tackled the real estate development and management business like nobody’s business. And we’re particularly well versed in hospitality. In fact, we manage more than 35 hotels and have developed well over 130. So you might say we’re real comfortable with hospitality.
Resting on our laurels isn’t in our DNA. Texas Western Hospitality operates more than 35 select service, extended stay and full-service hotels under the trusted Hilton, Marriott and IHG brand names in Arizona, North Carolina, and throughout Texas. And we’re expanding aggressively.
In fact, on any given day, our parent company, Western International, has a handful of properties under development. And our investment partners, associates and other stakeholders will tell you that our tenacity has yielded some pretty remarkable results over the years.
Something that might surprise you is that we attribute our aggressive success to our strong family culture. See, we believe overtime should never get in the way of family time. So we work smarter instead of longer. Which is something our employees appreciate. And when you love where you work, it shows. Which is something our guests appreciate.
We’ve long been guided by our founder, B. Gene Carter. Now, the thing about Gene is, he’s always done things his way. Which just so happens to be better than just about everybody else’s way. At least his many accolades and awards would suggest as much.
Gene is Founder, Chairman, and proverbial backbone of Western International a company that, as Gene puts it, is a family business. And pretty much everyone at WI would agree. No one’s a stranger around here. And it’s not uncommon to see the Carter family dropping by. In fact, his wife Nancy handles all parts of the interior design for the hotels.
