Long recognized as Dallas` legendary hotel, the Wyndham Anatole Hotel announces the completion of its West Wing meeting space renovation, which brings the hotel`s total meeting space to more than 340,000 square feet. The new West Wing, designed to offer optimum flexibility to mid-sized groups, is a significant part of the hotel`s $39 million renovation, which began in 2002.
Understanding that the global meetings market has changed, increasing in the number of mid-sized meetings being booked, the Wyndham Anatole sought new ways to reinvent its meeting space. Based on feedback from the Wyndham Anatole Customer Advisory Board, the state-of-the-art West Wing was created with dramatic new finishes offering increased flexibility for meeting room divisibility.
“Now more than ever, we find that meeting planners are looking for space that can better cater to mid-sized groups,” said Tom Faust, vice president of sales and marketing for the Wyndham Anatole Hotel. “As the premier destination for group travel in Dallas, it is our duty to meet and exceed the evolving needs of the most discriminating travel groups in distinctive and stylish ways. The opening of the West Wing has generated excitement among meeting planners and we`ve already booked more than 40 groups into our new space. The West Wing is part of our $39 million renovation aimed at proving our dedication to meeting planners and our promise to deliver complete guest satisfaction.”
The renovation of the West Wing, featuring stunning marble accents and rich dÌ©cor, was carefully planned to enhance the Anatole`s existing meeting space that generations of group and business travel customers have come to appreciate.
