The Pioneer Hotel was built in 1925 when Lubbock was experiencing a housing boom. It was Lubbock’s first premier hotel that was used to host civic functions, major events and other celebrations. The original structure housed a lobby, ballroom, management offices, retail spaces and dining establishments. Built in the Renaissance Revival architecture style, Hotel Lubbock, later called the Pioneer Hotel, is one of a handful of remaining early pre-World War II major buildings left in the city. McDougal Companies purchased the hotel in May 2005 and will be restoring the exterior and first floor to their original glory and constructing offices and condominiums on the remaining floors. The condominiums will range in size from 1,090 to 2,648 square feet and are available for purchase.
