With a recent boom in new development—a stunning convention center, headquarter hotel and burgeoning visitors district—Irving offers entertainment, walkability and urban integration, all without the big-city hassles.
A Stunning Convention Facility
There’s a lot about the city of Irving that defies convention—including the Irving Convention Center itself. Clients love its proximity to the airport, individual breakout spaces and vertical design. The center is the cornerstone of the new visitor’s district with walkable access to a Westin headquarter hotel and to the Toyota Music Factory with dozens of dining/entertainment options. Perhaps the center’s most surprising differentiator is something you don’t normally associate with convention facilities: upscale, inventive food. The chef-inspired menu goes way beyond the standard fare. With its unique design, convenient location and attention to detail that you would expect in a five-star hotel, the Irving Convention Center has become a coveted meeting place for events.
A Beautiful Headquarter Hotel
The Westin Irving Convention Center Hotel will mark the completion of Irving’s new visitor’s district in January 2019. The 12-story hotel will offer 350 rooms and 16,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 10,000-square-foot ballroom, cocktail lounge, and coffee bar. It will be perfectly positioned between the convention center and entertainment complex.
An Entertaining Visitor’s District
When meetings are over, fun takes center stage. Next door to the convention center, the brand-new Toyota Music Factory is an amazing entertainment development. The Live Nation Pavilion amphitheater anchors the $173M complex with an entertainment lineup that competes with almost any arena in the world. But the Toyota Music Factory offers more than just music. The 8,000-capacity amphitheater may be the biggest draw, but with the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater and more than 20 bars and restaurants filling up its storefronts, the Toyota Music Factory will keep visitors entertained all night long. It’s perfect for off-site meetings and off-the-clock itineraries.
A Cultural Hotel Experience
A new, kitschy boutique hotel, The Texican Court, is an out-of-the box location for meetings and group events. The retro-inspired hotel (think 21st Century roadside motor court) includes 152 rooms and 3,500+ square feet of unique indoor/outdoor event space. Visitors can experience local music while savoring the authentic Tex-Mex flavor of the region at the Two Mules Cantina.
An Easy Choice
Access is easy; folks are friendly; accommodations are plentiful; service is top notch. And Texas hospitality simply can’t be beat. Add a new center for food, music and culture, and you’ve got top-notch destination appeal in Irving.
