As everyone knows by now, the convention is moving in 2017 to the Westin north of the airport. Unlike the Marriott, there is ONE place to eat within walking distance (a Dennys across the street), not the multiple options available at the old locale. Besides the hotel restaurant, that is it without transportation. However, there are two other options:

#1 The city of Grapevine has a shuttle that comes by the hotel at 15 after every hour (3pm to 11pm Mon-Thurs, 12pm-11pm Friday, and 10am-11pm Saturday) in front of the hotel that takes visitors (at $5 a person) to downtown Grapevine, where there are several restaurants including Tolbetts, Wilhoites and Cotton Patch Cafe (a full list will appear here later). This is a good option if you have an hour or more to kill and want a nice sit down regional restaurant. It runs every hour on the hour so it gives you an hour to eat and then catch the shuttle back, about 2 hours in all.

#2 About five minutes away by car is a shopping center along Beltline (reached by Royal lane/Regent lane) with several fast food restaurants, including a Quiznos, McDonalds, McAlisters Deli, Burrito Jimmys, Cavalli Pizza, Burgdawgs, Planet Sub, Chipotle, Verts Mediterranean Grill, Dragon Express, Subway, Saladworks, Salas Mexican Grill, Indian Cafe, Gyro Oasis, Koriyaki Asian Grill, Starbucks, Jimmy Johns, Olympian Donuts, Vito's Pizza, Local Diner). It is a 20-25 min walk (about 1.5 miles away) or a short 5 min drive.

I have not found out if any of the places listed deliver to the Westin, but I will find out in the next couple of months (and also get a better list of what is available).

We have also discussed the possibility of having food trucks in the parking lot, which is allowed by the hotel, but we have to do a bit more resarch on this (cost, times, etc).
