Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center to undergo $120M expansion.

Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center – a property located in Grapevine, Texas – will undergo a $120 million expansion that will add 300 guestrooms to the resort’s current 1,511 room inventory, and will add 86,000 square feet of meeting space that will bring the total meeting space to approximately 490,000 square feet.

Construction is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016 and will be completed during the second quarter of 2018.

Once the expansion is complete, Gaylord Texan will become the second largest non-gaming convention center hotel in the US, behind Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center and ahead of Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.
