DALLAS, Tex. – Dallas-based Todd Interests has announced the planned November 14 opening of Thompson Dallas, part of the hospitality brand Thompson Hotels.
Located at 205 North Akard Street in the George Dahl-designed building, The National, Thompson Dallas has 219 rooms, including 52 suites, two penthouse suites, and two culinary destinations, and is part of the largest adaptive reuse project in the history of Texas.
The restoration and reusing of materials salvaged during The National’s $460 million preservation combined with Thompson Hotels’ world class culinary offerings, art and entertainment, and groundbreaking design bridges the rich Dallas legacy of The National
with Thompson Hotels’ take on modern luxury.
“Our Dallas property is one of the most exciting projects I’ve had the opportunity to work on in my 23 years in the hospitality industry,” said Thompson Dallas managing director Steve Shern. “We can’t wait to join the Dallas community and serve both those traveling and the people of the city.”
Thompson Dallas guestrooms average more than 700 square feet and will feature walnut and brass headboards, blue lacquered walls, and rich leather upholstered furniture. Frette robes, Sferra linens and custom duvets, and DS & Durga Bowmakers bath amenities round out the in-room offerings.
The fourth floor National Ballroom has 14,000 square feet of uninterrupted space, three
walls of floor-to-ceiling windows, 20-foot ceilings, private suites overlooking the space, as well as the ability to load-in directly to the ballroom. Two acres of indoor-outdoor space on the ninth floor are home to a full-service spa, fitness and wellness center, and a resort-style pool, as well as Nine at The National, the city’s new chic but casual daily dining venue serving breakfast and lunch.
The 10th floor features Catbird, an elegant restaurant, lounge, and rooftop bar.
Other Thompson Dallas amenities include Tondeo Hair Lounge, a three-chair barbershop helmed by Derek Ortiz, as well as a floral design studio and workshop, The Botanical Mix, both located in the hotel’s lobby.
