Hyatt has announced the opening of the 219-room Thompson Dallas, the first property under the lifestyle brand Thompson Hotels. The hotel is part of a re-development of the 52-story First National Bank Tower, an architectural landmark built in 1965 listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Thompson Hotels joined Hyatt’s portfolio last year as part of the group’s acquisition of Two Roads Hospitality. The new Dallas property is the first of six hotels under the Thompson flag Hyatt is planning to open across the South this year and next.
The hotel opens following a $460 million conversion, the most expensive in the city’s history. Among its 219 rooms are 52 suites and two penthouse suites, all of which feature walnut and brass headboards.
Thompson Dallas features two restaurants: Catbird on the tenth floor, a full-service restaurant, lounge and rooftop bar, and Nine at The National on the ninth floor, which
offers breakfast and lunch indoors and outdoors, while also providing services at the pool.
Also located on the ninth floor, the pool features an outdoor deck and bar, private cabanas with TVs and lounge seating, and a pet concierge with a grooming center and doggie daycare.
For events, the hotel has a 14,000-square-foot ballroom on the fourth floor, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city. Still to come in 2021 are a spa and fitness center, complete with five treatment rooms, hot and cold plunge pools, saunas, yoga facilities and a golf simulator.
The building will also house a range of businesses and organizations and The National Residences, 324 luxury high-rise apartments.
