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.”

Sheraton Dallas Hotel, the largest hotel in downtown Dallas, is currently undergoing an extensive renovation of all public areas, guest rooms, and meeting and convention space. As part of its ongoing multimillion-dollar renovation, the hotel introduced five new food and beverage concepts. Three of the five have opened, and the additional two will open by early February.

 

Two Mules Cantina, highly-anticipated bar and restaurant within Valencia Group’s new Texican Court, is now open for breakfast, dinner, happy hour and weekend brunch. Executive Chef Patrick Hildebrandt has created a destination to showcase Southwestern-inspired dishes. 

 

Event attendees at the George R. Brown Convention Center (GRB) will now be able to enjoy coffee from the first robotic, connected coffee service in Houston—the Coffee Haus, located across from the Marriott Marquis Houston’s skywalk. Houston First, which owns and operates the GRB, and its hospitality team powered by Levy, Houston Inspired Catering, have partnered with Austin-based Briggo to implement this service.
