Starwood and KFK Group to open Dallas Westin

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and New Orleans-based KFK Group (KFK) entered into an agreement to open a new Starwood managed Westin hotel in the heart of downtown Dallas, Texas.

The Westin Dallas Downtown will open by December 2015 as part of an adaptive re-use project that will transform the “One Main Place” complex into the city’s newest lifestyle development. Construction has already begun, following KFK’s acquisition of the one million square foot building in March of last year. The Westin Dallas Downtown will have 323 guestrooms.

Hotel facilities will include a three meal restaurant, a contemporary bar and more than 27,000 square feet of meeting space including a primary ballroom overlooking the eastern courtyard. The third floor of The Westin Dallas Downtown will be primarily dedicated to conference space. The 323 guestrooms will include 21 suites. The 32nd floor will have additional meeting space with views of the Trinity River, Victory Park, Reunion Tower and the historic West End.
