And one MORE renovation success story today!
For more than 30 years, Hotel Settles was a Big Spring eyesore. In its abandoned and deteriorating condition, it was also an embarrassing reality check of the city’s decline. Despite several attempts to revive it, the building was headed for demolition. Mercifully — and cognizant of the arduous task at hand — Big Spring-native son and visionary G. Brint Ryan, now of Dallas, purchased the landmark in 2007 and re-opened its doors this February after a $30M six-year historical rehabilitation. The 15-story Classical Revival/Art Deco hotel is now an appealing destination in West Texas that is breathing new life into the surrounding community.
