In Texas, the Hyatt Corp. is putting the finishing touches on three Thompson Hotels, in Dallas, San Antonio and Austin.
Up and running since November, the 219-room Thompson Dallas is in the heart of downtown, about a 10-minute walk from the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. In the historical National building — originally designed by local architect George Dahl, who built Fair Park while he was working on the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition — the $460 million restoration features two penthouse suites and two signature restaurants, Nine at the National and Catbird. For events, the hotel offers the 13,457-square-foot National Ballroom with 20-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and views of downtown, as well as four smaller breakout rooms for a total of 20,000 square feet of meeting space. A boutique spa, a wellness-focused fitness area and a two-acre 9th-floor pool deck round out the amenities.
Opening in March is the Thompson San Antonio, part of a luxury mixed-use development, the Arts Residences, on the city's River Walk. Near the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts and within walking distance of the Alamo, the 162-room hotel will include a signature restaurant called Landrace led by a local chef (to be revealed soon); a 20th-floor rooftop restaurant, the Moon's Daughters, "inspired by the Greek goddess of the moon," that will serve Mediterranean fare; the fourth-floor Cenote pool deck with a bar and cabanas; and a 5,000-square-foot full-service spa with five treatment rooms. The 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space will feature three outdoor venues on the River Walk, a 4,000-square-foot ballroom, an executive board room and 5,000 square feet of breakout rooms.
Scheduled to open midyear, the 212-room Thompson Austin will be in downtown's music district in a new mixed-use development. A "brutalist" modern design will be marked by concrete walls, handcrafted fixtures, and details such as polished stone and blackened steel. This aesthetic will be softened by lush greenery, leathers and other tactile materials. The ground-floor restaurant will be an Austin outpost of a Savannah, Georgia, eatery, and a fourth-floor deck will feature two bars, a pool and private event space. For groups, there will be a 3,500-square-foot grand ballroom, a junior ballroom and three breakout rooms.
