“We are very excited about the addition of this newest generation Courtyard by Marriott property to Alliance Town Center,” said Steve Aldrich, vice president of Hillwood Properties, commenting in a news release.

“There has been a gap in newer, high-quality hotel offerings along the IH-35W corridor. This property not only helps to fill this gap, it also provides for much needed banquet and conference space for the region,” Aldrich said.

This hotel will encompass four acres and feature a 3,500-square-foot ballroom-conference space. It will feature what Hillwood called a resort-style pool, outdoor fire pit and lounge area, and feature a stone exterior that compliments the architectural design of the surrounding retail, office, entertainment, medical and residential offerings at Alliance Town Center.

“We are thrilled to be joining the AllianceTexas community,” said Callette Nielsen, vice president and global brand manager of Courtyard by Marriott.
