DALLAS - The Dallas City Council on Wednesday capped the city's contribution to the construction of a deluxe 1,000-room hotel in downtown Dallas adjacent to the convention center at $356 million.

Officials expect to sell revenue bonds in early 2009 to finance the city-owned but privately operated hotel. The bonds will be issued by the Dallas Convention Center Hotel Development Corp., which was established by the council in August for that purpose.
