Located at the intersection of SH 114 and White Chapel Boulevard in Southlake, Delta Hotels is a six-story hotel that includes 240 guest rooms and 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space. The hotel also includes an outdoor pool, a lounge area, a destination restaurant, and a craft cocktail bar as well as a coffee shop and an on-site fitness center.
Director of Group Sales John Crosier said “the wheels were already turning” when the pandemic hit and that the company decided to continue moving forward with the opening of the hotel.
“It's a really difficult time to open up a hotel, but at the same time, Southlake’s been great, and they don't have a lot of new hotels,” Crosier said.
The hotel’s signature restaurant named Sky Creek Kitchen + Bar was developed and designed with the help of celebrity chef and restaurateur Dean Fearing. The restaurant will feature “elevated Southwestern cuisine,” according to a press release. The establishment will be run by Enam Chowdhury, the executive chef and director of food and beverage; Chef de Cuisine Jose Soto, most recently the sous chef for Fearing’s Restaurant at The Ritz Carlton Dallas; and Nick Bray as the restaurant and bar manager.
The hotel has the potential to bring 100 new jobs to Southlake. Management is waiting to hire 50 of the 100 employees until the hotel can operate at 100% capacity, Crosier said.
“For our meeting space, we can only do 50%. That's the new city ordinance,” he said. “We want to be operating at a higher percentage. Right now [we're at] 30% during COVID-19, which is actually pretty good.”
