A new look for a Dallas landmark. The 30-year-old Hotel Crescent Court recently announced a $30 million makeover project slated to start this spring. Overseen by the Dallas-based waldrop+nichols studio, the renovation will touch all 195 guest rooms and 31 suites, the elevators and guestroom corridors, the spa and fitness center, plus public spaces like the lobby and Beau’s bar. The guest room bathrooms will be entirely revamped, and there will be an additional four suites added.
According to the official press release, “the selected color palette of limestone, blush, taupe and mink allows the architecture of the rooms to be the feature, speaking to the classic French exterior.” The goal for the lobby renovation is to create greater “socialization” and circulation from the front door to the sunken courtyard connecting Stanley Korshak to the hotel.
A recent article in The Dallas Morning News highlighted that this is the hotel’s first major renovation since it opened in the mid 1980s. CEO John Goff said, "Hotel Crescent Court has played a critical role in Dallas' dynamic culture for three decades... This $30 million investment has been carefully designed to elevate the hotel to an even greater level of style, enriching the experiences of today's discerning travelers."
Hotel Crescent Court was acquired last year by Crescent Real Estate, which restored the hotel’s original name. Situated close to the Dallas Arts District, the Hotel Crescent Court has expansive facilities: destination restaurants including Nobu and The Conservatory, the 22,000-square-foot Spa at the Crescent, a state-of-the-art fitness center with personal trainers, an outdoor swimming pool, 17 event spaces, and the members-only The Crescent Club (like a country club). The renovation project is expected to be completed before the end of the year.
