Historic Stoneleigh begins $30mn restoration

The Stoneleigh Hotel and Spa - Dallas’ first residential high-rise and a society scene hotspot for Hollywood stars - is being carefully restored to “the epitome of glamour and sophistication in boutique hotel luxury”.Scheduled to reopen in late Fall 2007 with enhanced comfort and amenities, The Stoneleigh is being restored to maintain her historical integrity and 1930’s-era art deco splendor.

First opened in October 1923, The Stoneleigh is listed on the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s “Historic Hotels of America.” Its $30 million worth of restoration is being undertaken in consultation with The Texas Historical Society and the National Register of Historic Places. First built for a mere $1.5 million, The Stoneleigh was once the tallest hotel west of the Mississippi, hosting stars from Judy Garland to Tom Cruise as well as noted playwrights.

The Stoneleigh’s revival is taking place under the talented eye of world-class hotelier, Jeff Trigger, whose talent has transformed such notable hotels as downtown Austin’s The Driskill Hotel and Dallas’ The Mansion on Turtle Creek and The Adolphus Hotel.
