The Ritz-Carlton Dallas, Las Colinas opened its doors on January 23rd, becoming the newest addition to The Ritz-Carlton‘s collection of over 110 hotels and resorts worldwide. The property has a 38-year-old legacy in the Dallas area and is undergoing a substantial $55 million renovation following its acquisition in 2022 through a joint venture between Trinity Investments and Partners Group.
