The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas announced Tuesday the completion of its multimillion-dollar renovation, which touched all 218 guest rooms and suites, the lobby, public areas, corridors and the Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge.
The redesign, which was influenced by fashion, art and botanicals, was led by Texas-based Rottet Studio and pays homage to Dallas, according to Ritz-Carlton’s announcement.
Renovations to the lobby aimed to both conserve the historic building and add contemporary, luxury touches and custom furniture. The lobby now includes an 850-square-foot boutique for artisan perfumery House of Krigler, whose space features a mixture of Texas wood and Italian light fixtures.
The guest rooms and suites were restored to emphasize the building’s art deco notes and incorporate enhancements such as writing desks and chairs, as well as new bathroom and vanity areas. Rottet Studio created a color palette of walnut and bone-colored ribbed lacquer in an ode to Texas’ cattle industry.
The new look for the property’s 12,000-square-foot spa was inspired by Dallas’s urban parks. The spa’s nail and hair salons and relaxation lounges were renovated, and an in-spa dining lounge was added.
The Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is in the midst of a boom in hotel activity. Dallas leads other U.S. markets for the largest hotel construction pipeline. And neighboring Fort Worth is America’s fastest-growing city, with $2.3 billion in projects under construction or in the pipeline, according to The Wall Street Journal.
That growth has translated into heightened hotel activity, with brands like Canyon Ranch targeting the area for expansion.
