A sneak peek at downtown Midland’s planned hotel ‘The Thomas’

A new hotel project looks about to happen in the city center.

The hotel will be temporarily called “The Thomas” and will transform the building the developer said was built in 1927, making it “the oldest tall building in West Texas.” The plan will include the rehabilitation of an existing building and the construction of new rooms, bringing the total number of rooms to 93.

The developers have said they are looking for incentives to help with a $25 million project that will bring a small hotel to Building 100 on South Lorain Street. They are currently negotiating with the Midland City Manager. The Midland City Council will have to approve the agreement.


The hotel will be a Hilton brand, like the current downtown hotel – the DoubleTree by Hilton Midland Plaza. The developers also said it will be part of the Hilton “Tapestry” brand, which allows developers to “embrace the independent nature of the hotel.” The developers told the board that they have taken part in 70 properties and have another 80 “in the pipeline.”

The hotel will have a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, some meeting spaces and valet parking. The average daily price was $150 initially expected. De Palma said the hotel will not be a “Big Box Conference Hotel”.

De Palma stated that once the developers get approval for the project, construction can be completed within 24 months.

The display includes images that are supposed to represent design ideas for “The Thomas”.
