Located next door to the newly developed Toyota Motors North America headquarters and the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters, the hotel features a provocative and diverse collection of art that underscores its inventive West of Zen design theme.

The theme also extends a welcome to international guests traveling on business to the multinational corporations headquartered within the Legacy West corridor, and incorporates north Texas influences.

Event space rental has entered a new era. Spurred by the incredible success of Airbnb as a unique and affordable housing option for travelers, new options for renting affordable meeting and event space have been created. Peerspace is one example of a company making finding affordable space easier than ever. Similar to Airbnb, private owners list their spaces online for rent by the hour, day or event night, if the space is a private home.

Launched in 2014, Peerspace has more than 10,000 listings nationwide and aims to connect professionals and businesses to great spaces.
