The full-service hotel, in central Dallas, Texas, is situated on 3.6 acres at 12720 Merit Drive, within the Park Central mixed-use development, which includes three LEED Gold-certified office towers and more than 845,000 square feet of Class A office space.

The joint venture purchased the asset free and clear of debt for an undisclosed price last month from FelCor Lodging Trust Incorporated and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.

The Westin-branded hotel features 42,000 sq ft of indoor function space that includes a 15,050 sq ft grand ballroom.
