Historic Preservation + New Renovations: the Magnolia Hotel in Dallas

Our upcoming new Feature Accommodation is the famed Magnolia Hotel in Dallas which just completed a recent $3 million renovation of 330 guest rooms, the Magnolia Club, public areas, and meeting spaces.
Built in 1922, it was the first high-rise building in the United States to be furnished with air conditioning and is the first Dallas skyscraper over 400-feet high. The Magnolia Hotel is to be commended for helping to preserve the rich heritage of downtown areas by being situated in historic landmark buildings in Dallas, Houston, Denver, and Omaha.

The famous flying red horse oil company sign stil shines above the 29-story hotel which originally housed the Magnolia Petroleum Company when built back in 1922.
Situated just across the street from the downtown boutique hotel in the historic Dallas Power & Light Building is the Pegasus Room ballroom. The Magnolia Hotel has updated the expansive 3,500 square foot ballroom with multi-colored lighting underneath impressive 18-foot ceilings and one-of-a-kind chandeliers, a perfect location for that special event.

We are proud to be featuring the Magnolia Hotel in Dallas soon.

Dallas for "bidness" and fun getaways

As a thriving city for business, it's no wonder that Dallas just made the Forbes list for top ten cities for billionaires. Makes me wonder what J.R. would say from the 1980s series Dallas.
The city also made the list for the top ten cities for job growth in 2009.
Dallas, still a mecca for tourists and business
One of our noteworthy visits to Dallas has been to the Adolphus Hotel. When entering the Adolphus, I was in awe of the regal surroundings. Ornate artwork, Belgian tapestries, hand-painted Chinese jardinieres, and fine furnishings dating to the 17th century adorn the expansive main lobby areas.

The rich and famous have stayed here, from Presidents, royalty, celebrities, to athletes. Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra used to play here nightly. The energetic Adolphus Busch would be proud of his hotel and be amazed at the bustling city that Dallas is today.

Next week, we visit the Magnolia Hotel, located in a historic building with the trademark neon flying horse Pegasus sign for the Magnolia Petroleum brand overhead. The Magnolia Hotel owners also maintain distinctive properties in Denver, Omaha, and Houston. We visited their relaxing hotel in Houston recently. Read about in our Magnolia Hotel - Houston feature.
