Developers, investors, Southlake Mayor Laura Hill, and City Council members and city staff gathered at 1200 E. SH 114, Southlake, for the groundbreaking of the Westin Hotel on Jan. 21.

The project is a development of SRH Hospitality, which is a combination of three companies: Seneca Investments, Rochester Real Estate and Harrell Hospitality Group.

Once completed, the hotel will feature 261 rooms, 25,000 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center, a resort-style pool, an event lawn and a parking garage, Harrell Hospitality Group CEO Paul Barham said.

The Westin, valued at more than $90 million, has been about seven years in the making, he said.

“I think this project, given that it’s a Westin brand, represents exactly what this community is about,” Barham said. “It’s high-quality. It’s high-visibilty, and in terms of what we’re going to deliver, we’re going to deliver a first-class, four-star, four-diamond hotel.”


The hotel is slated to open in fall 2021.
