Construction has begun on the new Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen and Watters Creek Convention Center, in the southeast corner of U.S. 75 and Bethany Drive in Allen, Texas. The project is expected to take 18 months and will be the largest conference center along the U.S. 75 corridor between Dallas and Oklahoma.

The project will include 300 guest rooms, a six-story parking garage with 1,000 spaces and 90,000 square feet of flexible convention, ballroom and meeting space. The hotel will be operated by Benchmark Hospitality, as a Delta Hotels by Marriott. Delta Hotels is a rapidly growing premium full-service brand within Marriott, known for its upscale modern appeal and distinct style of simple made perfect.

The Allen location will be the first ever in the United States that is built by the brand from the ground up.

The hotel will include a fitness center, swimming pool, indoor and outdoor dining options and is perfectly located in walking distance to nearby shopping and dining options.  

The $91 million hotel and convention center is being funded jointly by the city of Allen, the Allen Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) and the Allen Community Development Corporation (CDC). It's being built by Dallas-based Altera Development, along with Peinado and Crossland construction companies. Funding is being provided by IBC Bank

Planning for a convention center/hotel in Allen has been in the works for at least eight years, with the project gaining the most traction in the past three years, city officials have said. 

The hotel and conference center will serve as the cornerstone of the Watters Creek Office Park, an area that includes one billion square feet of office space. Construction has already begun on the first phase of a key building in the park, One Bethany at Watters Creek, which is expected to open in the first quarter of 2018.
