IRVING’S TEXICAN COURT, A VALENCIA HOTEL, OPENS NOVEMBER 15  Las Colinas Urban Center Welcomes Retro-Inspired Court Concept Hotel


IRVING, TEXAS (October 24, 2018) – Valencia Group’s Texican Court, the highly anticipated 152-room retro-inspired motor court concept, in Irving’s Las Colinas Urban Center opens November 15. Making for an exceptional travel and hospitality experience, Texican Court is conveniently located across from the Irving Convention Center and thriving Toyota Music Factory, Irving’s popular all-in-one concert venue, entertainment and dining destination.

The hotel’s design features Spanish mission-style architecture with a subtle layer of Texas, making it a unique blend of Mexican and the Lone Star State cultures. Texican Court has retro-inspired rooms, 3,500 square feet of indoor meeting and event space, three distinct courtyards, a circular-styled pool, large wood-burning fire pits, rocking chairs, live music, the Two Mules Cantina restaurant and more.

“We wanted to bring the theme song from the Spaghetti Western film, ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly,’ to life through the design of this hotel,” said Valencia Group President Doyle A. Graham, Jr. “When you listen to the song, you can envision the larger-than-life vistas filled with dramatic backdrops and excitement, and we captured the essence of the tension, and drama characterized by this song in the walls of this hotel to create a captivating experience for our guests.”

A throwback to a time when travel was an adventure, Texican Court provides a home away from home for even the most discerning traveler. The carefully curated blend of colors, fabrics, textures, sights, and sounds was developed by one of the country’s most innovative international architecture and design firm, Rottet Studio.

Two Mules Cantina restaurant is open to hotel guests and the surrounding community. When entering the stucco building from the street, patrons will be greeted by a grand, two-story-high space surrounded by glass partitions at the front and back and large clerestory windows on either side. With a large fireplace and the central bar as a backdrop, guests will be able to settle in for an enjoyable dining experience.

Impeccable group accommodations and meeting spaces are offered at Texican Court. Perfect for meetings, weddings and receptions, the Little Chapel holds up to 160 people. The Serape Boardroom holds up to 18 people. All this is complemented by unique outdoor spaces.

Texican Court is led by a talented team, including General Manager John Thomas, Executive Chef Patrick Hildebrandt and Director of Sales and Marketing Brianna Sepulveda.

Texican Court is offering introductory rates starting from $99 per night. For more information or to make a reservation, visit or call 833.839.4886.
