Hilton Bella Harbor

On May 17, notable Texans, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Whittle Development Inc. will celebrate the opening of the new Hilton Bella Harbor, a fabulous North Texas destination that lends new meaning to the term "lone star" with its combination of first-class accommodations and waterfront features. Located 22 miles east of downtown Dallas, the hotel was designed for and around water. Seventy five percent of the luxury property's rooms have a lake view and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the hotel frame the lakeside pool and incomparable lake views. An interior water-wall and water-like reflective surfaces with metallic-flecked granite floors and art glass chandeliers bring the sound and look of water inside. Additional custom features like a majestic, specially-designed fireplace and in-laid walls with handcrafted rosewood detail complete the experience for guests.

Hilton Bella Harbor is owned by Whittle Development, Inc. and operated by Gateway Hospitality Group under a franchise license agreement with Hilton Hotels & Resorts, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hilton Hotels Corporation. Construction for the luxury property began in November of 2006, which is one of many new attractions in the Harbor District, also built by Whittle Development, Inc.
