The City of Irving and Mortenson Development, Inc. today announced Westin Hotels & Resorts® brand as the official flagship of the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas (ICCLC) Headquarter Hotel, set to break ground in Irving, Texas later this year with a grand opening slated forlate 2015.
Part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., the 350-room, full-service headquarter ICCLCWestin® will be located adjacent to the Convention Center and connected by sky bridge. Expected to attract large-scale conventions, new dining options to the area, and other visitor attractions, Irving’s new ICCLC headquarter hotel will further promote the economic health of the city as well as state-wide.
“With the bond sale for the entertainment elements anchoring the south end of the Convention Center complex scheduled for next week, this announcement of the headquarter hotel flag to be a Westin® could not be better timed, said Irving Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director, Maura Allen Gast.
Westin’s stellar reputation in the Convention market will be an important one for Irving as this project moves forward. Their exceptional global sales organization, coupled with their Starwood Preferred Guest® program, will generate enhanced interest and further strength to Irving’s offerings as a meetings and event destination.”
