Guests enjoy a full-service business center, which offers the convenience of on-site shipping and printing, 20,000 square feet of function space, complimentary self-parking, a 24-hour fitness center, an indoor pool and whirlpool, and signature restaurant Twenty-One-One-Eleven, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Unique DAD Investment Platform Launches Online
In addition to these acquisitions, DAD recently brought its innovative investment model online, with a new digital platform. Through the new site, accredited investors can invest in specific properties that are part of DAD’s portfolio, seamlessly managing those investments in a simple, secure online environment. Tan-Tar-A Resort – acquired by DAD in June 2017 – was the first available investment opportunity to debut on the new site. The Hilton Dallas/Rockwall Lakefront and Sheraton Detroit Novi Hotel are both now live online, as additional investment opportunities.
“This year has been tremendous for us, seeing dreams we laid out just two years ago turning into a reality,” said Rodriguez. “Today, we celebrate a year of outstanding progress for us and our investors, and we set our sights on what we expect will be another record-setting year in 2018!”
