CRESTVIEW, KY (April 18, 2019) – – Columbia Sussex, one of the largest Marriott franchisees in the country, continues its aggressive renovation program to at least nine of its Marriott owned and operated properties, and has completed a multi-million dollar renovation of its popular Dallas Marriott Las Colinas. Noted for its proximity to the area’s convention center, but also its location across the street from the new Live Nation Toyota Music Factory and dining and shopping in the Metroplex, the hotel has hosted entertainers such as Chris Isaak and Steely Dan, acclaimed actresses such as Geena Davis and Carrie Fisher, and more than 20 NFL teams have all chosen the hotel for its prime location and trusted Marriott hospitality.

One of the first hotels built in the master-planned community of Las Colinas in Irving, Texas (within the Dallas Metroplex), 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 aesthetic, location and fresh design.

Guest Rooms

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 to reflect this design philosophy 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. Rooms with balconies overlooking serene Lake Carolyn, a Concierge Level and lake view Hospitality and Parlor Suites are perfect for small functions, meetings or for overnight stays and can be configured to include up to two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and sofa bed. With more than 750 square feet of living space, two-bedrooms, and three-baths, the three Parlor Suites are the largest sleeping rooms in the hotel. One room has a king-sized bed and the second bedroom has two Queen beds with a beautiful view of Lake Carolyn. The luxury furnishings include a spacious Parlor with a 55-inch flat screen television, an eight-seat dining table, a fold out sofa and kitchenette.

Each luxurious guest room is designed for optimal rest and productivity with architectural framing, contrasting finishes and wall cladding, upscale bathroom fixtures, and thoughtful solutions to enhance a guest’s stay, such as:

  • Convenient wall outlets, lamp outlets and nightstands outfitted with USB ports for multiple electronic devices
  • Luxurious bedding with cotton-rich linens and fluffy pillows
  • High-speed Wi-Fi and a large desk with comfortable chair and plug-in panels
  • 50-inch flat-panel TVs with premium cable and movie channels to keep guests well-entertained. Enseo In-Room Entertainment also brings the content guests want directly to the guest room TV, including Netflix®, Hulu®, HBO GO®, YouTube®, Pandora®, and Crackle®.
  • Strategically placed mirrors, including back-lit vanity mirror and full length mirrors

The Concierge Lounge, located on the 15th floor, offers exclusive access to personalized business and Concierge services, all-day dining options and evening cocktails. It is an exclusive area for Marriott elite guests. Guests staying on the 12th, 14th and 15th, floors are provided with warm and anticipatory customer service meeting the needs of Marriott’s frequent travelers.

Lobby and Meeting Spaces, Greatroom

Upon entering the hotel’s spacious lobby, guests will be greeted at the front desk kiosks by team members who imbue the ambiance with Southern Hospitality and seamlessly handle their check in. Enhancing a sense of place upon arrival, materials such as Post Oak end-tables and South Texas Limestone brick are being used. Once a guest is checked in, they can’t help but be awed by the spectacular view of Lake Carolyn, framed in such a way that one might think it’s a painting.

The hotel’s more than 27,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor meeting spaces comprise twelve event rooms, including 550 square-foot board rooms and a more than 10,000 square-foot ballroom, that accommodate groups of 25 up to 1,000 guests. Ample pre-function space includes the outdoor Lakeside Terrace situated along Lake Carolyn to enhance the variety and flexibility for a group’s needs. The materials used throughout the hotel will patina over time and become more refined as they age, such as wood stools and leather details.

The Greatroom, located on the lobby level , is a highlight and hub of activity for guests. The Greatroom, Greatroom Bar and Private Dining Room offer great spaces for private events, impromptu gatherings after the day’s work is done and quiet nooks for more intimate conversations. The outdoor deck looking onto Lake Carolyn is popular for the hotel’s Outdoor Barbecues, Lakeside Receptions and memorable weddings . Design highlights include a stacked stone wall in the Greatroom dining space that reflects stone found in the Dallas Las Colinas area. The entry to the Chef’s table and private dining room, which will double as a board room, reflect the local architecture that incorporates southern and sleek lines and the use of natural materials found in the area.
