IHG Awards Family-Owned Hotel Company Developer of the Year for Galleria Property

American Liberty Hospitality won IHG’s 2022 Developer of the Year award for the Holiday Inn Express & Staybridge Suites—Galleria Area hotel.

ALH opened the dual-branded property to give business travelers a new, upscale hotel at an affordable price. The hotel features two distinct experiences—Holiday Inn Express offers premium guest rooms ideal for short-term travelers, while Staybridge Suites offers apartment-style lodging with full kitchens for long-term guests. Both brands include complimentary breakfast and a rooftop pool. With mid-century modern furniture, high ceilings and quartz details, the property shows a level of sophistication uncommon for a hospitality property in its category. ALH also partnered with local companies on the project. “We have deep roots in Houston,” said ALH CEO Nick Massad, Jr. “This was an excellent opportunity to showcase our city’s history and what it has to offer today.” Massad, Jr. accepted the award alongside ALH Senior VP of Dev. Nick Massad, III.
