In August, Chip and Joanna announced their new hotel was taking reservations for a grand opening of Nov. 1.

Located in the stars' hometown of Waco, Texas, the property occupies the former Grand Karem Shrine Building, which has been completely renovated and redesigned by the Fixer Upper: Welcome Home stars. The address at 701 Washington Street is just six blocks (about a three minute drive or a ten minute walk) from the Gaines's Magnolia Market at the Silos shopping and dining destination, which attracts fans from all over the world.

Hotel 1928, which is named for the year the original structure was built, will feature three eateries, 33 guest rooms and more than 6,600 square feet of event space for travelers and locals alike.

The restoration of Hotel 1928 has been a long time coming. The couple announced their plans to fix up the building back in Oct 2019.

“If you’ve followed our work, you might notice a pattern — that time and time again, Chip and I are drawn to projects that emphasize the value of home,” Joanna wrote in a post on her blog in April. She explained they went all-in on this project because “it bridges what we’re most passionate about—home, hospitality, and restoration.”
