The branch of Hyatt’s lifestyle brand “Thompson Hotels” that opened in November 2020 is located in a true landmark of the city – the 191 meter high “The National”. The skyscraper was finished in 1965 was designed by the famous American architect George Dahl. Because of its historic meaning, it was registered into the “National Register of Historic Places” in 2017.
For the design of the hotel, neither costs nor efforts were spared: Interior designer Caroline Todd chose selected pieces of art adding up to a value of more than two million US Dollars that are now on display in the hotel – among them photographies by David Yarrow, paintings by David Bates and JD Miller as well sculptures by Raul Mourao. Just as sophisticated: finest de Gournay wallpapers, side tables of Patagonian quartzite or seats of Mexican walnut wood.
“Today’s Dallas is a global destination for culture, gastronomy and entertainment; and Thompson Dallas embodies the atmospheric spirit and the cultivated touch of one of the most urbane cities of the Lone Star State.“ Steve Shern (General Manager, Thompson Dallas)
