A multimillion-dollar renovation has begun at Marriott's 1,840-room Sheraton Dallas Hotel. All 230,000 square feet of meeting space and public spaces, as well as 1,300 of the rooms, will be redone.
"The Sheraton Dallas Hotel is well positioned to deliver on the vision of our new brand experience," said Julius Robinson, senior vice president of classic premium brands for Marriott International. "Its deep roots within the city along with a legacy of service can only be amplified by our new design strategy that welcomes guests and locals to gather and interact, offering collaboration spaces, productivity-enabled technology and an engaging hotel community."
The lobby, porte-cochère and entrance, restaurants and bar will get new looks. In 1,300 guest rooms, the bathrooms and hallways will be redesigned. The hotel's 230,000 square feet of meeting space will get new lighting, painting and carpeting. 
In the process, the hotel will rebrand the food-and-beverage offerings. The three-meal, full-service Club Lounge restaurant is getting a new concept; there will now be a craft cocktail bar; a marketplace will be added, offering quick, healthy options for travelers on the go; and a new terrace Biergarten will open, serving craft brews with views from the fourth floor. Draft Media Sports Lounge, the sport bar, will remain, but will get a new look and revamped menus.
"Our guests will benefit from our thoughtfully transformed enhancements throughout the hotel," said Mark Woelffer, the hotel's general manager. "We look forward to welcoming guests to experience the new Sheraton Dallas, which will become a gathering place for all."
