Barstow, Ca. – On Wednesday, July 7th, Hotel Investment Group was joined by Barstow Mayor Paul Anthony Courtney, Mayor Pro-Tem James Noble, Councilwoman Marilyn Dyer-Kruse, and City Treasurer Michael Lewis for the official groundbreaking of the newly approved Marriott Hotel Project.
The Chief Executive Officer for Hotel Investment Group Darshan Patel stated, “We are honored to have the support of the City of Barstow on this project; the Marriott Hotel brand is recognized worldwide by millions of travelers and today Barstow has become part of our family. The positive economic development impact to the region in construction jobs and employment in the hospitality sector will continue to reshape the micro-economy of the region.”
