A trial date has not yet been set.

DFW: DFW is the state’s biggest hotel market, reports Source Strategies, raking in slightly over $3 billion in revenue in 2017. Austin posted the highest overall occupancy rate of 75% (DFW 70%). The hotel with the most revenue per-available-room per-night was Dallas’ Ritz-Carlton. The 1,511-room Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center took in the most overall revenue of nearly $89.1 million. Other Dallas hotels in the top five were the Hilton Anatole and the Omni Dallas.

Is it turning a profit? Has the city had to dip into the $30-50 million reserve fund to pay the mortgage? Did the hotel meet the goal to bring more of the biggest conventions to town?
How is the RevPar relative to other big convention/meeting hotels in North Texas?
Tucy are you still tracking any of this?

How ironic that a big resurgence in Las Colinas will be punctuated by the music factory, hotel and convention center, while in Dallas the Municipal Auditorium and Naomi Burton Main Stage are barely a combined afterthought as performance venues.
On average, there should be a concert or event here at least three times a week.

I couldn't help but think how Dallas made such a huge mistake burying the convention center underground and ignoring the surface area around it. What a missed opportunity to bring some life to that end of downtown. The hotel helps some, but not nearly enough, imo.
