DALLAS—NewcrestImage has opened a 176-room, 18-floor Hampton Inn & Suites in the historic Allen Building here in downtown. The hotel is the largest Hampton Inn & Suites in the Dallas area, according to the company.
Mehul Patel, chairman/CEO of NewcrestImage, noted, “Downtown Dallas is undergoing dramatic urban rebirth and our new hotel is intended to be the catalyst for even further development.”
Built in 1923, the Allen Building was acquired by NewcrestImage in 2014 and has undergone a multimillion-dollar renovation. Amenities now include a 300-sq.-ft. boardroom; a fitness center; a business center and a Treats Shop, both of which are open 24/7. Plans call for a fine-dining restaurant tenant as well.
