Sheraton Dallas Hotel, the largest hotel in downtown Dallas, is currently undergoing an extensive renovation of all public areas, guest rooms, and meeting and convention space. As part of its ongoing multimillion-dollar renovation, the hotel introduced five new food and beverage concepts. Three of the five have opened, and the additional two will open by early February.

Among the already opened outlets is Open Palette. Open Palette serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the modern American cuisine offers a menu with bold, surprising spins on flavors. Also already opened is Moka Pot, a coffee lounge serving fresh roasted beans.

Draft Sports Bar and Lounge, formerly known as Draft Media Sports Bar, has reopened as a new concept with a fresh, modern design, and it boasts a new menu with fresh ingredients. The bar features 12 local beers on tap and the lounge has 25 televisions.

The Parlor is set to open in early February. This new cocktail lounge features one-of-a-kind craft cocktails and small bites. Also opening in February is Open Market, which is ideal for those on-the-go. The market offers fresh bites including sandwiches, wraps, salads and other items made from scratch. 

The U.S. Travel Association has called the current moment the “Great Travel Depression,” in light of the economic effects resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.
