Grapevine’s event venue options are expanding. This summer, the community will welcome Hotel Vin to its historic district. Part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, the 120-room Hotel Vin embraces the city’s historic past, while offering the innovation and amenities of today. The hotel will feature 10,327 square feet of indoor meeting space—including a 4,232-square-foot ballroom with panoramic views of Main Street and the community plaza—and 4,140 square feet of outdoor event space.

Hotel Vin will include the all-day dining venue Third Rail, a full-service lobby bar and four private dining rooms. The hotel also connects to Harvest Hall, a multipurpose venue that features seven food stalls and two additional bars, as well as a 38,000-square-foot outdoor plaza. Additional amenities at the hotel include a state-of-the-art fitness center and two outdoor patios with fire pits.

Hotel Vin is part of Grapevine Main, a $114 million mixed-use development directly in front of the new TEXRail line in the Main Street District of Grapevine. The TEXRail line runs from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport to downtown Fort Worth.
