Room service: Friendswood attorney and developer Jerome Karam has signed a franchise agreement that will brand his island boutique hotel, underway at the former Falstaff Brewery site, as a Trademark Collection by Wyndham, he said.

The 90-room hotel, 3303 Church St. in Galveston, will be an upscale property, Karam said. Wyndham bills the Trademark Collection brand as one meant for “independent entrepreneurs who have built an iconic hotel and are looking to increase visibility and build a legacy.”
