Curio Collection by Hilton debuted The Statler in Dallas, an iconic downtown hotel that recently underwent a $225 million redevelopment. The property, owned and developed by Centurion American Development Group, was designed by Merriman Anderson/Architects and is managed by Aimbridge Hospitality.
The hotel is located in the heart of the city at 1914 Commerce St. The 19-story, mixed-use asset offers 159 guestrooms, 219 residences, nightlife venues, specialty retail, 33,000 square feet of meeting space, a rooftop pool and lounge, fitness center, bowling and games area, a 13,154-square-foot ballroom and five restaurants: Overeasy, Bourbon & Banter, Fine China, Scout and Waterproof.
Historic Hilton hotel
Originally built in 1956 as one of Conrad Hilton’s first convention properties, The Statler was seen as a pioneer hotel and credited with establishing Dallas as an epicenter for business and entertainment. More than 60 years later, Centurion reopened the property as part of the Curio Collection.
“We are honored to reopen the doors of The Statler. Known as the first modern American hotel, The Statler is a one-of-a-kind property encompassing endless history and culture,” said Mehrdad Moayedi, president & CEO of Centurion American Development Group, in prepared remarks. “Our vision in restoring The Statler to its original glory and beyond was to create the ideal place to live, work and play for locals, and the ultimate Dallas destination for visitors to our city.”
