The Westin Galleria Dallas has completed a multimillion-dollar renovation to the property. Every inch of the hotel has been updated, including the 448 guest rooms and 10 suites, the lobby, the 54,000-square-feet of meeting space and the hotel’s restaurant.

The guest rooms have newer furniture, Westin Heavenly Beds, USB ports to charge devices and updated light fixtures. The lobby now offers a communal table with computers and printers available to guests. There is also a new buffet area in the lobby that offers coffee and, on the weekend, cupcakes. The meeting spaces have been redecorated in a modern, fresh aesthetic. Additionally, the hotel has upgraded its Internet service and now offers high-speed Internet and 24-hour support for the Internet should a guest have trouble with it.

“This refresh shows our commitment to providing each guest with a world-class experience and complete sense of renewal during their stay with us,” says Greg White, general manager, Westin Galleria Dallas. “Our guest rooms now include top-of-the-line features and amenities while the lobby and public spaces have evolved to offer our guests a bright and airy welcome the moment they walk in the door.”

Located just north of Dallas, the Westin Galleria Dallas offers guests a range of amenities, including a fourth-floor pool, on-site restaurant and a fitness studio.

"We have always done it this way" just doesn’t cut it anymore. The landscape of meeting planning is going through a quiet revolution, and the old rules no longer apply. Instead, they are being replaced with new treatments from the once-sacred conference tote bag to the way chairs in the ballroom are arranged. We talked to meeting planners who are creating fresher, more authentic approaches to your average meetings.  

From “Same Old” to “Can’t Miss”
