The Renaissance Dallas Hotel announced plans to open a new 30,000-square-foot meeting facility. The architect and contractor for this project is HC Beck. The 14-month, multi-million dollar construction project, expected to create jobs for nearly 200 workers, is scheduled for completion in June of 2014.
Renaissance Hotels is a lifestyle brand within the Marriott International global portfolio of 18 brands.
The new facility will give the hotel a total of 50,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The centerpiece of the new space will be a 16,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom, able to accommodate up to 1,500 people for a seated dinner. Directly above the new ballroom will be the City View Ballroom and City View Rooftop Terrace, including an additional 10,900 square feet of indoor and outdoor space for large-scale events. The City View Ballroom will offer floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the Dallas skyline.
The new structure is designed to qualify for the LEED Standard Silver status rating to signal the hotel’s focus on sustainability and environmental responsibility throughout the renovation process. Key design elements include contemporary décor, vaulted ceilings and state-of-the-art sound and lighting. The facility will offer a private entrance with valet parking options and motor coach access, as well as catering services focused on modern-American cuisine with a local twist. The hotel’s current meeting and event space will remain open throughout the expansion.
The new facility gives the hotel the ability to house larger conferences and social galas which it was previously unable to accommodate due to lack of space.
The Renaissance Dallas Hotel is located near the American Airlines Centre, Dallas Convention Centre, and Love Field Airport. The property includes 514 guestrooms and suites, Celebrity chef Dean Max’s Asador Restaurant, rooftop pool and fitness center. Marriott International currently offers a portfolio of nearly 90 hotels across nine lodging brands in the DFW Metroplex.
