Dallas Magnolia Hotel
The Dallas Magnolia Hotel is a 330-room upscale boutique hotel located in the heart of downtown Dallas, Texas catering to the sophisticated traveler. With 129 hotel suites featuring fully equipped kitchens and living areas, the Magnolia is ideal for extended stays and business travelers. With its contemporary dÃ©cor and unique design, the Magnolia is the perfect combination of city-chic and classic elegance.
The Dallas Magnolia Hotel is located in one of Dallas's most revered historic buildings, the Magnolia Petroleum Co. Building. Built in 1921, the 29-story structure designed by British architect Sir Alfred Bossom was the first high-rise in the United States to have air conditioning, and was the city's first skyscraper at more than 400-feet high. The 29-story neoclassical style office tower was the tallest building west of the Mississippi River when it opened in 1922. The building's landmark was a statue of Pegasus, the mythical flying red horse, which served as the logo for Magnolia Petroleum Co. and is still used today as the logo for Mobil, a part of Exxon Mobil Corp. After Magnolia Hotels invested $42 million to redevelop the property, the famous Pegasus was restored, and can be found rotating atop the building, again serving as the city's landmark.
