Two Hotels, Two Amazing Renovations in Allen

Posted on October 23, 2018 at 12:37 PM by Cori Kallenberger

With our convenient location, great shopping and 250 wonderful restaurants, Allen has always been a popular home base for visitors to North Texas. And with the recent completion of renovations to two of our best-known hotels, we’re giving leisure travelers, meeting planners and event attendees even more reasons to choose Allen!


Hilton Garden Inn breakfast area and ballroomHilton Garden Inn Dallas-Allen
Situated just steps away from Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm and Allen Event Center, the Hilton Garden Inn Dallas-Allen is home to 150 guest rooms and more than 9,000 square feet of flexible meeting space. The hotel’s multimillion-dollar renovation saw upgrades to virtually every aspect of the guest experience, from room décor and linens to outdoor dining and audio-visual technologies.

Some of the most impressive changes were made to the hotel’s 4,180-square-foot ballroom and five breakout rooms. A completely redesigned green room/bridal suite off the main ballroom can function as a lounge for your event’s keynote speakers or as a prenuptial staging area for a bride-to-be. The suite features abundant natural light, floor-length mirrors and comfortable open seating, while the breakout rooms boast large-screen smart HDTVs with hassle-free Bluetooth connectivity.

Outside, a new patio deck provides a relaxing venue for al fresco cocktails and bites from Executive Chef Brian Grey. Other creature comforts include complimentary hotel-wide Wi-Fi, the brand’s signature bedding and in-room hospitality centers including microwave ovens, mini-fridges and everyone’s beloved Keurig coffee makers.


Courtyard by Marriott breakfast area and ballroomCourtyard Dallas Allen at the John Q. Hammons Center
With an equally enviable position just a short walk from Allen Event Center and The Village at Allen, the Courtyard Dallas Allen at the John Q. Hammons Center now ranks as one of the signature hotels in the brand’s portfolio following its $6 million renovation.

The hotel’s 228 guest rooms and more than 15,000 square feet of meeting space make it a favorite of both leisure travelers and meeting planners. In addition to new décor throughout the property, the comprehensive renovation includes the addition of a buffet dining option to The Bistro restaurant and bar—perfectly suited for corporate attendees, sports teams and other large groups.

Complementing the thoroughly updated fitness center and indoor pool, the hotel’s courtyard welcomes your party with comfy new patio furniture and a circular fire pit for staving off the evening chill. Meeting planners will appreciate the 15 flexible meeting venues on-property, all served by modern A/V equipment, high-speed Wi-Fi and onsite catering options.

Watters Creek Convention Center - Opening January 2019
Both hotels boast premier locations that are just steps away from Watters Creek Convention Center and Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen, the $91 million, state-of-the-art event venue and 300-suite hotel opening next January. With more than 90,000 square feet of flexible convention, ballroom and meeting space, Watters Creek Convention Center will deliver style and sophistication unlike any other destination in North Texas.
