Texarkana will soon realize its dream of a convention center and luxury hotel. Excitement
continues to build as another crucial milestone is reached with the selection of the Design/Build
firm for the Texarkana Convention Center and adjacent Hilton Garden Inn. In a joint statement,
Texarkana, Texas CEO/City Manager Dr. Larry Sullivan and local Texarkana investors D
Hospitality, LLC Principal Jack Daugherty announced Friday that Weis Builders, LLC of Dallas,
Texas has been chosen as the Design/Build Team Leader for the joint project. The City of
Texarkana, Texas will own the convention center and D Hospitality will own the hotel and
manage both the hotel and convention center.
“Entering the Design/Build phase of this project is the culmination of a long‐term vision of the
Council and the Texarkana community coupled with a brilliant financing mechanism through
hotel occupancy tax dollars,” commented Mayor Steve Mayo. “Developing the Texarkana
Convention Center, paired with the luxury Hilton Garden Inn, with NO financial burden to our
citizens is an accomplishment in which we can all take great pride.”
