JW Marriott Dallas Arts District has opened, marking the brand’s highly anticipated debut at the epicentre of the robust cultural arts scene in Dallas, Texas.
Located within walkable blocks from the Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, Crow Museum of Asian Art, Meyerson Symphony Center, Moody Performance Hall, and the Winspear Opera House, the first JW Marriott hotel in Dallas is sophisticated, yet welcoming with a design scheme that immerses guests in a showcase of artistic influences and experiences while providing the brand’s signature style of mindful luxury and hospitality.
The hotel’s design showcases countless artistic representations of themes that played a part in the growth and success of Dallas. A city that began as a trading post in 1841 and grew into a modern-day cosmopolitan center of commerce and the arts, presents a rich history of vision, creativity, fortitude and resilience. More than 20 original artworks in various mediums were commissioned for the hotel public areas and represent the nuances of the North Texas region.
Renowned hospitality design giants HKS Inc. and Looney Associates collaborated on the architecture and interior design of the sleek 267-key hotel, three restaurants, two lobby spaces, and more than 1,850 square metres of flexible meeting space. A grand mid-air pool and deck with cabanas offers stunning views of downtown Dallas as well as the hotel’s Arts District neighbours, many of which are museums and performance venues with historic architecture.
The F&B scene inside the hotel is complete with Margarets, a three-meal ranch-to-table restaurant, JW Market and Vincent’s Sky Lounge, all located on the hotel’s 11th floor. On the same level, the sky lobby is a double volume museum-esque space with a floating staircase and glass railing with displays of monumental original artworks including a brass and metal installation created by Dallas-based artist Chris Judy. It is reminiscent of sheet music, delicate harp strings, and the chandeliers in the Winspear Opera House.
