Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center Opens

By Matt Swenson, August 2, 2016

Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center added more than 25 percent room inventory (bringing the total to just over 800) to one of the state’s oldest towns when it opened in July, increasing its viability to host meetings and events. Georgetown, Texas, named after territorial entrepreneur George Washington Glasscock (who donated 172 acres to establish the Williamson County seat), has long drawn crowds and kudos primarily for its annual Red Poppy Festival and restored downtown, with many of its 19th century buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. Enter the Sheraton, the first Georgetown property where attendees can meet, dine, network and use the property as a base for exploring the area’s cool history and architecture.
