    New Space, More Rooms

The Westin Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas, part of Marriott International, opened its doors on March 30. Located next to the Irving Convention  Center and Toyota Music Factory, the hotel features 350 guest rooms with floorto-ceiling windows and approximately 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space, including the Harmony Grand and Melody ballrooms, the Rhythm and Cadence boardrooms, and a main event lawn and an event lawn at the pool deck. Additional amenities include a fitness studio, outdoor pool and dining options, such as Craft Coffee Shop, Vibe—a pool and deck bar—and Mesa Mezcal, a modern Mexican restaurant.

Temperatures are starting to dip in Seattle, but if you want to get in one last outdoor gathering before winter, consider The Rooftop at WeWork Cap Hill. Located on the penthouse level on 11th Avenue near Seattle’s storied Pine and Pike Streets, the space offers inviting landscapes and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Capacity: 74.  Bring sweaters and scarves!
