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. 

Over a period of 13 years, Colorado Meetings + Events has hosted two “Best of” award celebrations at the Denver Art Museum (DAM). So it was fun to get back to the museum in January 2019 to hear about and see DAM’s $150 revitalization project underway and experience an exhibition that I’ve been hearing so much about.

 

U.S. News & World Report recently released its “Best Hotels” list for 2019 and 22 of BENCHMARK’s hotels and resorts were named to the list.

Highlighted honors includ three silver badge winners that placed in the top 30 percent of all ranked luxury hotels within a destination. They include Villas of Grand Cypress in Orlando, Benchmark’s newest hotel, La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, and Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in Curacao.

 

Denver-based Stonebridge Companies has acquired the 280-room Embassy Suites by Hilton New Orleans Convention Center hotel. As the property owner and operator, the acquisition marks Stonebridge Companies’ entrance into the New Orleans market.
