The Westin Stonebriar in Frisco, Texas, has reopened following a full-scale, $30 million revitalization overseen by Merriman Anderson Architects and MTA Urban Design Architecture Interior Design.
Included in the renovation is a new on-site golf pro shop, a fitness studio, the TopGolf Swing Suite, a daytime coffee bar and cocktail lounge and a full-service Southern restaurant.
Still to come is a revived outdoor pool with cabanas and an adjacent bar, an on-site spa, a yoga lawn, a running trail and a kids club opening in 2021.
The architecture in the 302 guestrooms brings in elements of the surrounding nature with open connections to the patio and the outdoors. All rooms have artwork, warm wood finishes, vintage leather and stone accents, and the WestinWorkout Peloton Guestrooms include an in-room bike and access to the latest Peloton classes.
The hotel will get three new food-and-beverage concepts. A day-to-night café, Beans & Barrel, is an all-day grab-and-go cafe with local bites and beverages. Helmed by Christopher Ochiltree, director of culinary & beverage operations, Herd & Hearth will emphasize the flavors and traditions of Texas fare with wood-fired and smoked plates that utilize fresh produce from local purveyors. In spring, the hotel will open Ranch Water, an outdoor bar serving craft cocktails with regional spirits and light poolside fare.
The hotel’s 26,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space now includes the new Top Golf Swing Suite, with a screen for virtual multisport games, high definition TVs, lounge seating and a frosted glass option for parties and happy hours.
