The Renaissance Dallas Hotel is set to open its new meeting and event space July 14, complete with Pink Granite from nearby Marble Falls, TX.

Designed and contracted by HC Beck, the new 50,000-square-foot space will hold a 16,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom as its centerpiece, able to seat up to 1,500 people for dinner. Directly above the ballroom will be the City View Room and City View Rooftop Terrace, a 10,900-square-foot indoor and outdoor large-scale event space with windows extending from the floor to the ceiling that offer a view of the Dallas skyline.

The local granite from Marble Falls, TX, 48 miles northwest of downtown Austin, can also be found within the Texas State Capitol, along the Galveston Seawall, and at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. The granite comes from Granite Mountain, a large batholith that put Marble Falls on the map.

"Since the Renaissance brand is all about the discovery and bringing local to life, there was no better choice for an exterior of the new space than the local Marble Falls Pink Granite which also adorns the exterior of the hotel," said Mark Woelffer, general manager.

Ranking among the top hotels in Dallas, the Renaissance Dallas Hotel features 514 guest rooms and suites, celebrity chef Dean Max’s Asador Restaurant, a rooftop pool and a fitness center. The hotel stands among the American Airline Center, the Dallas Convention Center, and the Love Field Airport, as one of the 90 hotels that Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE: MAR) owns in the DFW Metroplex under nine separate lodging brands.

Although the new space is set to open July 14, the old space is under renovation until September 1.

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
