Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the opening of Thompson Dallas, part of the lifestyle hospitality brand Thompson Hotels. As the first Thompson Hotel property in Texas, Thompson Dallas is located in the historic George-Dahl-designed building, The National, and features 219 rooms, including 52 suites, two penthouse suites and two culinary destinations: Nine at The National and Catbird. The hotel’s design is brought to life through a collaboration between Caroline Todd of Todd Interiors and Cindy Zelazny of Interiors Limited. Merriman Anderson Architects are the architects of record for the development and are also involved in the interior design.
Originally designed by George Dahl, the architect responsible for iconic Dallas establishments such as the art deco buildings of Fair Park and Neiman Marcus Downtown, The National historic elements include restored original wood panels inlaid with brass that line the walls of the ninth floor and the original 17,555 hand cut exterior marble panels sourced from the same quarry as the marble used for the Parthenon. More than $2 million of art and one-of-a-kind furnishings from Frieze London, PAD London, and internationally recognized galleries were personally selected by interior designer Caroline Todd and are located throughout the property. The restoration of The National cost about $460 million.
