We Made the Dirt Fly

Posted on July 22, 2019 at 1:55 PM by Erin Coulter

You may have heard that we will be welcoming our first four-star, full service hotel and convention center. But did you know that we’ve already broken ground and construction is underway? That’s right- we made dirt fly at the site of the  Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen Watters Creek Convention Center back in April and we’re making progress towards a 2018 opening date. If you missed the groundbreaking, don’t worry, check out this video showing how our exciting future begins.

While our world-class shopping, expanding entertainment, more than 220 delectable dining options and top-notch meeting space at our two existing convention hotels already on garnered interest, this project is sure to pique the curiosity of meeting planners.

The hotel will have 300 guest rooms and a 1,000-car parking garage at the corner of Bethany Drive and North Central Expressway. The area may sound familiar to you as it’s just across the street from Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm (one of our premier mixed-use shopping destinations). So, whether it’s browsing upscale boutiques or grabbing a glass of vino and admiring the view on the patio, meeting guests and visitors will find all this and more within walking distance. 

And of course the convention center itself will have plenty of meeting and exhibit space, 79,000 sq. ft. to be exact. With a 40,000 sq. ft. exhibit hall, 20,000 sq. ft. of pre-function space, a 12,000 sq. ft. ballroom 10,000 sq. ft. of exhibit breakout rooms and 8,000 sq. ft. of general meeting and boardroom space – in other words, enough space for a Texas-size conference, meeting or convention.

We’ll keep you updated on the progress. In the meantime, if you want to find out how your meeting, event or convention can be one of the first in the new Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen Watters Creek Convention Center, contact our team at 214.509.4670 or by email at info@visitAllenTexas.com
