An upscale hotel and convention center may bring more business to the fast-growing Collin County city of Allen.

The state’s first Delta Hotels by Marriott is opening near Highway 75 and Bethany Drive, across from the popular Watters Creek shopping center.

It will be the largest hotel complex along Hwy. 75 between Dallas and Oklahoma with 90,000 square feet of convention space and 300 guest rooms.

The four-star hotel will have a sophisticated yet rustic Texas design. It will also feature Texas cuisine in celebrity Chef Stephan Pyles’ signature restaurant, Stampede 66.

The grand opening is Tuesday morning.
