Recently acquired by Altera Development, the 300-key hotel will feature 90,000 square feet of convention, ballroom and meeting space; 1,000 parking spots; a restaurant and destination bar; a swimming pool; 24 Hour Elite Pantry; fitness center with cardio, weights, yoga and crossfit;and free Wi-Fi and bottled water.

Located on the northwest corner of U.S. 75 and Bethany Drive, the hotel is within 30 miles of Dallas Forth Worth International and Dallas Love Field and eight miles from McKinney National Airport. The hotel is also near Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm, a mixed-use property which offers golf courses, entertainment, outlet shopping and dining.

The City of Allen, Allen Economic Development Corp. and Allen Community Development Corp. are jointly investing in the project. Benchmark Hospitality has been chosen to operate and market the facility.

“With new corporate facilities being built by companies like WatchGuard Video and KONE, Allen has become a Class A office market,” said Dan Bowman, executive director of the Allen Economic Development Corp., in prepared remarks. “The delivery of these high-end meeting facilities and amenities is already attracting more of these corporate tenants and drove the recent groundbreaking of a five-story, 125,000-square-foot office building and parking garage on a neighboring parcel. The hotel and convention center are being developed largely in response to Allen’s explosive corporate growth.”
