A bit off topic, but I still have some hotel envy for Dallas (and this is coming from a die-hard Houstonian).  I think we could more than justify some new 5* hotels downtown, especially with the hotel & residences model that is so popular these days.  Ritz Carlton, Waldorf, Fairmount.......bring it!

Dallas needs to have good hotels for us Houston folk to stay in while there.  We demand excellence.

I can't wait to read the reviews about how everything is terrific except the fact the tubbers get stuck at all the 90 degree changes in course on the "River Ride" or whatever it will be called.

 

And to the point that the interiors look dated - its Marriott - they're more conservative than other hotel brands.

Does anyone know if the proposed makeover of Avenue of the Americas into a more pedestrian friendly street was approved?

 

I believe it was, it's been mentioned in a thread somewhere, maybe someone could point fernz in the right direction?

 

EDIT: I found it! In this thread.... Convention Center Redevelopment + Future 14-20- Story Hotel, the confirmation could be found in Urbannizer's post (#50)(page 2)  I would have linked it but it would probably wouldn't work if I did.

In the spirit of going head to head with the Hilton, they should put a Lupe Tortilla in this one.

Let's not forget the Pappas Bros. BBQ to go in the middle.
