BRYAN, Texas

The Stella, a luxurious four-star hotel coming to Bryan, Texas, in Spring 2017, will debut over 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space upon opening. The Stella’s spaces, which include a grand ballroom and outdoor lawn, will be multi-use and functional for business meetings, corporate retreats and various social events.

The hotel is part of Lake Walk, a 180,000-square-foot town center and master planned community, which includes restaurants, retail, a five-acre lake, waterfront park, pavilion and more. The Stella will offer a seasonally driven restaurant, craft cocktail bar, specialty coffee roaster, outdoor pool and poolside cabanas.

The Stella’s function areas, six meeting rooms and outdoor space, are able to accommodate groups of 10 to nearly 500 people. With a wide array of room sizes and layout options, The Stella has the flexibility to host everything from intimate boardroom meetings to large-scale corporate events.

The meeting spaces, curated by interior designer Design DMU and architect FAB Studios, feature an earthy color palate reminiscent of the Texas countryside with a modern and sophisticated flare. Inspiring, light-filled spaces will feature panoramic views of the outdoors and the Texas countryside.

The property’s largest indoor room, the Celeste Ballroom, is 4,307 square feet and accommodates up to 479 people. The Stella’s function lawn, The Back Yard, offers 10,000 square feet of space that can hold up to 300 people and can be tented for barbecues and formal events. Beyond the boardroom, groups can experience on-site activities that include paddle boarding, lakeside concerts, outdoor yoga and hiking and biking trails.

The Stella’s 176 guest rooms offer a sophisticated residential feel with oversized balconies in several of the suites. Guest rooms feature views of the lake, golf course and Kyle Field.
