The Westin Galleria Dallas has completed a multimillion-dollar renovation to the property. Every inch of the hotel has been updated, including the 448 guest rooms and 10 suites, the lobby, the 54,000-square-feet of meeting space and the hotel’s restaurant.

The guest rooms have newer furniture, Westin Heavenly Beds, USB ports to charge devices and updated light fixtures. The lobby now offers a communal table with computers and printers available to guests. There is also a new buffet area in the lobby that offers coffee and, on the weekend, cupcakes. The meeting spaces have been redecorated in a modern, fresh aesthetic. Additionally, the hotel has upgraded its Internet service and now offers high-speed Internet and 24-hour support for the Internet should a guest have trouble with it.

“This refresh shows our commitment to providing each guest with a world-class experience and complete sense of renewal during their stay with us,” says Greg White, general manager, Westin Galleria Dallas. “Our guest rooms now include top-of-the-line features and amenities while the lobby and public spaces have evolved to offer our guests a bright and airy welcome the moment they walk in the door.”

Located just north of Dallas, the Westin Galleria Dallas offers guests a range of amenities, including a fourth-floor pool, on-site restaurant and a fitness studio.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
