The story of Petersen Hotels begins in 2003 shortly after the Shoppes at Grand Prairie opened. Mark Petersen, Owner & CEO of the Petersen Companies, regularly drove through the Grand Prairie area and found himself musing that someone should certainly build a hotel in the neighborhood soon. The project seemed to be a no-brainer. However, months passed and never a word was heard about a hotel development at Grand Prairie. So after careful consideration and many conversations with his closest friends and colleagues Mark determined he’d once again follow his eternally insightful instinct, and in early 2007 Petersen Hotels was born. Now with six operating properties and several more in various stages of development, Petersen Hotels is positioned to be the leader in area hospitality for many years to come.
