DALLAS–The Hotel Crescent Court in Uptown Dallas completed a $33 million overhaul of its lobby, guestrooms, suites, corridors, spa, and fitness center. This is the first major renovation since the hotel’s inception in 1986, ushering in the newest chapter in Hotel Crescent Court’s history. This renovation modernized guest experience with amenities including a champagne bar and cocktail lounge to transform the Uptown fixture into a spot for social gatherings, meetings, recreation, and relaxation.
“The completion of the extensive renovation project represents the culmination of tireless work on the part of multiple parties,” Andrew Davidson, general manager of Hotel Crescent Court, says. “We are proud to bring our vision to life and reintroduce Hotel Crescent Court to travelers nationwide. It is our priority to deliver memorable moments to guests by offering authentic experiences, dedicated staff, exceptional amenities, and a chic ambiance leaving visitors transformed.”
During the year-long project, craftsmen and designers worked to achieve the perfect balance between conservation and transformation. Dallas-based architectural design firm waldrop + nichols studio was tapped to re-envision the hotel’s new look, which marries its classic identity with contemporary European luxury and sophistication. The lobby provides serviceable guest pods for accessibility and interaction, while various seating layouts create meandering pathways encouraging flexible socialization. Designed to be the focal point, Beau Nash, the brand-new champagne bar and cocktail lounge, has brass light fixtures and a marble bar top imported from Spain. The bar offers more than 30 sparkling selections and both small and large plates.
Guestroom and Suite Redesign
The full restoration of the 186 guestrooms and 40 suites (an addition of nine suites from the original), pays homage to the vision of Caroline Rose Hunt and the original architect and Pritzker Prize-winner, Philip Johnson, while incorporating modern enhancements to meet the needs of today’s travelers, including new bathrooms and vanity areas. A color palette of blush, cream, and gray speak to the classic French Renaissance façade, while rooms have Frette bed linens and woven axminster carpet.
Spa and Amenity Updates
The all-new 22,000 sq. ft. luxury spa and fitness center was led by Dallas-based interior design firm, Michelle Meredith + Associates. The 16-treatment room spa incorporates natural elements such as water features and spiral root figures to add organic touches. Additional facilities include a Spa Lounge with fresh-squeezed juices and champagne, an all-new nail salon, and an expanded retail area.
A Lone Star landmark, the Hotel Crescent Court is steps from the Dallas Arts District with easy access to shopping, dining, and entertainment. The luxury hotel’s 186 rooms and 40 suites reflect Texas hospitality through a private bar, custom bath products, and other amenities. The 13 dining outlets include the world-renowned Nobu with Japanese cuisine to the glass-enclosed The Conservatory overlooking courtyard gardens. The hotel also has an outdoor swimming pool, 17 event spaces encompassing 23,320 sq. ft., and specially-curated programs that celebrate the community.
