Kimpton Pittman Hotel opens in Dallas
Historic piece of Dallas architecture transformed into a hotel
With a typical flair, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is a perfectly designed boutique hotel, the newest hotel in Dallas.
The 165-room hotel is located in Deep Ellum, the city’s entertainment district known for its live music, lively street murals and quirky art galleries. It is named after the landmark building’s original architect, William S. Pittman, who designed the building in 1916.
The hotel has been remodeled by Perkins + Will in conjunction with Busta Studio and the Dallas Historical Society, and the original features of the hotel have been restored while a newly built contemporary tower has been added. In the lobby and common areas, exposed reinforced and raw concrete bones have been softened with natural leather textures, bespoke furniture and furnishings like vintage glass-inspired lighting, curated pieces by local artists like Toni Martin, Michael LeDoux and Robin Walker, and a collection of original photos that show the hotel’s 1916 roots and come from the Dallas Public Library.
Bedrooms have a neutral color palette, highlighted by green, orange, and gray hues, local artwork, leather-stitched headboards, and Atelier Bloem toiletries.
