Marriott Las Colinas Completes Phase I of Renovation
Marriott Las Colinas in Dallas has completed Phase I of a multimillion-dollar renovation that includes all guestrooms. Phase II is underway to include public and meeting spaces, the restaurant, bar/lounge and the Marriott signature greatroom lobby.
The renovation style incorporates the rustic Texas heritage of Las Colinas’ ranching industry, drawing inspiration from the region’s rolling hills with the use of wood, stone, leather and wrought iron that will patina over time.
