NewcrestImage appoints two executives for upcoming Dallas hotel

AC Hotel Dallas

NewcrestImage named two senior executives for an upcoming hotel in Dallas. The property, a conversion of the city's 21-floor Mercantile Commerce Building into two separate upscale hotels, is expected to open March of 2017.    

Kellie Adams, a 20-year hospitality veteran, was named GM of the hotel, while Monica Weagel was appointed director of sales. Adams has 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry, while Weagel has 12.

The Mercantile Commerce Building, originally opened in 1956 and vacant for the past 25 years, began undergoing renovations in April of 2015 that will create a 128-room AC Hotel by Marriott and a 121-room Residence Inn by Marriott. The project will have the AC Hotel lobby and lounge on the ground floor, with guestrooms on floors three through 11. The Residence Inn lobby will be on the second floor, with guestrooms located on floors 12 through 21. The building will also have a fitness center and restaurant.
