The Westin Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas, part of Marriott International, is set to open its doors in late winter 2019. 

Located adjacent to the Irving Convention Center and Toyota Music Factory, the hotel is owned through a public-private partnership between the city of Irving and developer Garfield Public/Private LLC. 

“We look forward to our hotel bridging the gap for visitors to our city and all that Irving has to offer,” says Todd Winch, general manager at Westin Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. “The hotel will provide an upscale and convenient option for business and leisure travelers, and will offer our guests and locals alike a personalized hotel experience and proximity to all area activities.”

From the Harmony Grand Ballroom to the Cadence Boardroom, the hotel features more than 30,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor space for energizing events. With two ballrooms, two boardrooms, a 10,000-square-foot event lawn and event space by the pool, the Westin Irving Convention Center is ideal for gatherings and events of all kinds. 

Located at the center of the Las Colinas entertainment district, the hotel will offer access to numerous DFW attractions. Guests can ride the DART orange line in, visit plenty of dining options, catch a concert at the Toyota Music Factory, or follow the RunWESTIN™ routes and discover local spots along the way. 

“The Westin Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas provides the final component of Irving’s vision for its convention district,” says Maura Gast, executive director at the Irving Convention & Visitors Bureau. “With the Westin’s opening, meeting professionals and attendees now have a perfectly efficient destination package with the Irving Convention Center and Toyota Music Factory with its Live Nation Pavilion and restaurant options.  With Irving’s unbeatable location in the heart of Dallas/Fort Worth and between DFW International Airport and Love Field, Irving is now the ideal sweet spot for meetings and conventions.”

The Hilton Americas-Houston hotel has appeared on the list of top 100 hotels in the United States by Cvent, an industry-leading event management technology company, for the second time.

 

Available through the end of August, Texican Court plans to beat the summer heat with its first-ever poptail program. 

The poptail, which combines premium spirits and popsicles, was introduced at Valencia Hotel Group properties back in 2016. Texican Court, the group’s boutique hotel, is thrilled to join the summer fun by adding the poptail program to its seasonal menu.
