“We couldn’t have found a more perfect city than Dallas and a more perfect neighbourhood than the Design District to continue our expansion of Virgin Hotels across America,” said Raul Leal, chief executive, Virgin Hotels.

“We’re so excited to welcome guests and locals alike to experience all that our brand has to offer – from elevated cuisine and cocktails to comfortable and spacious Chambers for work, sleep and play.”
