Crescent Real Estate to Launch $30 Million Renovation of Dallas' 226-Key Hotel Crescent Court

DALLAS, TX. April 3, 2017 – Beginning a new chapter in its 30-year heritage, Hotel Crescent Court of Uptown Dallas unveils plans today for an extensive $30 million re-imagination, launching spring 2017. The geometry of architecture and fashion is the inspiration of the expansive renovation, beckoning a new generation of followers to dwell in the Dallas icon. As an ode to Hotel Crescent Court’s impressive architecture, the transformation will serve to modernize and amplify the experience of sophisticated Southern hospitality, including the complete redesign of all 195 guest rooms and 31 suites, elevators and guest room corridors, the 22, 000 sq. ft. spa and fitness center, as well as the hotel lobby and bar.

The interior design concept honors the historic property’s past, blending European luxury and elegance with impeccable Texas hospitality. To pay homage to the 5-star hotel’s French Renaissance façade while upholding the vision of Caroline Rose Hunt and original architect and Pritzker Prize-winning Philip Johnson, cues were drawn from the world of haute couture and avant-garde ideals, as the hotel has radiated greatness since its inception in 1985.

Project details include:
•Full redesign and restoration of 195 luxury guest rooms and 31 suites – with the addition of four suites during the renovation – including all new bathrooms and vanity areas.

•Upgraded floor corridors and elevators. Already unique due to the curvature of the hotel, the corridors will reference French-inspired patterns through innovative techniques in textural wall panels, seeded glass sconce diffusers, and rift-cut silver walnut millwork.

•Enhancement of hotel public spaces including a fully refurbished lobby with elegant furnishings in main-lobby bar and lounge, Beau’s. The evolution will invite socialization that allows for ease of flow and circulation from the front door to the sunken courtyard connecting Stanley Korshak to the hotel. The addition of bar seating will infuse activity and generate buzz in the lobby.

•Additional funds will be invested towards the membership program, including the remodeling of the 22, 000 sq. ft. spa and fitness center.

The renovation of Hotel Crescent Court follows the return to its original name, after being purchased by Crescent Real Estate LLC (Crescent). “Hotel Crescent Court has played a critical role in Dallas’ dynamic culture for three decades, always striving to be the face of unparalleled service, ” says John Goff, Chairman of Crescent. “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’s impressive upgrades will serve to evoke a sense of calm and stylish affluence, designed for a lifestyle where quality reigns and the absence of excess is the new luxury for a modern culture.

As a Lone Star landmark, Hotel Crescent Court mirrors its stylish surroundings – steps from the bustling Dallas Arts District with easy access to shopping, dining and entertainment. The luxury hotel’s 195 rooms and 31 lavish suites reflect gracious Texas hospitality including a private bar, custom bath products and thoughtful touches.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
