My family had the amazing opportunity to have a spectacular stay-cation at the newly renovated Dallas Marriott in Las Colinas. I want to share with you the amazing hospitality we enjoyed as a family and how much fun we had. The property is absolutely stunning,.
Newly Renovated Marriott!
One of the first hotels built in the master-planned community of Las Colinas in Irving, Texas (within the Dallas Metroplex), the Dallas Marriott Las Colinas is located on the shores of Lake Carolyn. Both Dallas airports are near the hotel — 8.6 miles from Dallas Fort Worth International (DFW) and 9.4 miles from Dallas Love Field (DAL). Plus, it's an easy day drive to DFW from many cities surrounding the metroplex.
Center of Entertainment
The Irving Convention Center is just a 10-minute walk from the hotel and anchors a new visitor and entertainment district, which sits between the hotel and the center. Visitors to the district can enjoy top touring concert artists, plus local music, eateries, art and culture all within one small footprint in Irving.
Dallas Marriott just completed a multi-million dollar renovation that includes all guest rooms, public and meeting spaces, the restaurant, bar/lounge, and Marriott signature Greatroom lobby.
The renovation style incorporates the rustic Texas heritage of Las Colinas’ ranching industry, drawing inspiration from the region’s rolling hills. The new Marriott Hotel standards focus on architectural aesthetics, location, and fresh design.
The kids and I were treated to an amazing suite on the 12th floor that had the most amazing views of Lake Carolyn. I really enjoyed seeing the views of the lake during the daylight with the kids. The 12th-floor suite is the perfect view to see all of the lake.
The kids got so excited to see the sunset and see the lights of the buildings glow. It really puts a different view for us to appreciate.
With a base of warm, modern textures, the new guest room color palette reflects the Bluebonnets that dapple the prairie landscape and the oranges that paint the skies at sunset.
All 364 guest rooms, including three presidential suites, have been renovated using wood, metal, and leather that harkens to the ranching history of Las Colinas, coupled with a modern and upscale twist reflecting Marriott’s modern aesthetic.
Restaurant and Bar
Dinner at the restaurant the Greatoom is something we all enjoyed. The food we ordered was the chef’s special of steak and mashed potatoes with veggies. Also the NY strip with potatoes and brussels sprouts. Lastly, the kids got the salmon with jasmine rice and veggies. I opted to feed the kids off the main menu and split the meal and it made for equal portions.
I highly recommend when visiting the restaurants on-site to choose meals for the kids off the main menu to make the evening special for them too. The kids really enjoyed the special treat. The restaurant has the most beautiful views. I fell in love with how comfy the chairs were. It made for the perfect meal.
The Greatroom, located on the lobby level, is a highlight and hub of activity for guests. Accommodating up to 75 in the Greatroom, 50 in the bar, and 16 in the Private Dining Room, there is a space to fit a myriad of guest needs from morning until night.
Design highlights include a stacked stone wall in the dining space that reflects stone found in the Dallas Las Colinas area.
The entry to the Chef’s table and private dining room doubles as a boardroom and reflects the local architecture from southern and sleek lines, the uses of natural materials found in the area is beautiful.
I am so happy we got to experience an amazing staycation at the newly renovated Marriott in Las Colinas. This is a perfect place to unwind with your family. The staff was super and very kind to us which made our trip that more relaxed.
I think it's always a great idea to take a break from the normal routine and switch it up with a family staycation. Take in all the fun around the Toyota Music Factory that is only a block away from the hotel. There you can find so much to see, do and enjoy.
There is so much to do, but making memories with your family is all that matters.
