This 514-room property in downtown Dallas is revitalized after debuting 50,000 square feet of LEED Silver-certified event space in November 2014. The venue has 25 meeting rooms, including the 16,000-sq.-ft. Grand Ballroom, which has modern audiovisual capabilities and can host up to 1,800 guests. The aptly named City View Terrace has 10,000 square feet of space and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Dallas’ skyline. Renaissance Dallas is a 10-minute drive from both Dallas Love Field Airport and Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. Casual dining is available at on-site restaurant Asador. The property is also rolling out new culinary options with a focus on local, seasonal ingredients. “Our out-of-town guests who are in continuous meetings can now explore the tastes of this region through a culinary experience,” says Dean James Max, Renaissance Dallas’ chef. For a taste of true Texas hospitality, family-style meals are recommended.
