Just 30 minutes from downtown Dallas, Allen, Texas, boasts premier shopping, engaging entertainment, more than 250 delectable dining options, and top-notch meeting space — so it’s easy to see why is a preferred choice for meeting planners. Plus, the destination is becoming even more notable with a highly anticipated new development.

Allen is welcoming the Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen & Watters Creek Convention Center, which is slated to open January 2019. To accommodate groups of all sizes, the convention center will offer a remarkable 90,000 square feet of meeting and convention space, including a 40,000-square-foot exhibit hall, as well as an attached 1,000-car garage. The hotel will have 300 elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites, each equipped with lush amenities. Identified as the largest convention center between Dallas and Oklahoma, the property will be conveniently located at the corner of Bethany Drive and North Central Expressway, within walking distance of Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm, a beautiful mixed-use shopping and dining center.

When it comes to look and feel, the Delta Hotels Dallas Allen & Watters Creek Convention Center will reflect the energy and excitement of booming North Dallas. Blending sophisticated design with curated art and the latest technology, this venue will set a stunning scene for meetings, conventions, exhibitions, and more. Guests will also appreciate the world-class dining options — helmed by chef Stephan Pyles — offered onsite.

Pyles has been reimagining Texas cuisine for decades, and now he’s bringing his inventive culinary point of view to Allen. His signature restaurant, Stampede 66, will offer a true Texas dining experience — with a few delightful surprises thrown in. Consider it Pyles’ love letter to the delicious food and big personality of Texas. Also from Pyles, Canyon Bar will feature fresh takes on Texas favorites, and Provisions 66 will offer gourmet food on the go.

As anticipation builds, you’ll be glad to know that the Allen Convention & Visitors Bureau is already accepting bookings. That’s right — your next meeting, event, or convention could be one of the very first held in the new Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen & Watters Creek Convention Center.
