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.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

This fall, chef Jorge Guzman will open a new restaurant, Petite León, in the former Blackbird Cafe space in South Minneapolis. The restaurant will serve dishes with Mexican, Spanish, French, and American influences, that aim to be approachable, creative and delicious.
