A press release stated that the hotel management and investment firm, Midas, announced that the Element by Westin hotel recently opened its doors for the public. The hotel is located at 2205 North Glenville Drive in Richardson.
The press release explains that the $22 million hotel shares 5.2 acres with 3D Development on a “mixed-use development and joint venture.”

Midas was established in 2006 and is a “fully integrated real estate enterprise with business units specializing in capital generation, construction, and management services for hospitality properties and adjacent investments.” The new Element by Westin hotel in Richardson marks the second Element hotel brand they oversee and manage.
According to the website of MW Builders, they mention that the new hotel is great for “healthy, active, and eco-conscious travelers who want to maintain a balanced lifestyle while on the road.” The building also offers “calming common areas” throughout the hotel.
