The Dealey features a king-size tufted bed surrounded by five large windows, classic furnishings, and a luxury shower in the large bathroom. Named after Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, this room memorializes JFK, who was assassinated there in 1963; browse the gallery wall and find yourself engrossed in the enigma of the man and case in the meticulously arranged newspaper-wallpaper in the bath.
The Eastham is both romantic and modern. A floor-to-ceiling headboard and mirror wall support the king-size bed. This spacious suite has a claw-footed soaking tub next to a vintage stained glass window that creates kaleidoscopic luminosity during golden hour. Named after the prison where Bonnie and Clyde orchestrated a jailbreak for their friends, this suite playfully explores light and darkness.
The Varco is comfortable and distinctive with a steel sliding bathroom door, nautical porthole vanity, and antique gas pump. The king bed faces large, beautiful windows, and the luxury bath has a spa shower. This room is named for a pivotal oil industry equipment manufacturer, nodding to Dallas' success in this arena for over a century.
The Adair, named after western film legend Will Penn Adair Rogers, known for his acerbic wit and skillful rodeo performances, remembers the past cowboy with pieces like the cowhide rug, vintage saddle, and carved steer skull. Relax in the king bed with a wooden plank headboard wall, and luxuriate in the large bathroom with a spa shower.
The Dentzel is the only room with a private terrace; enjoy this outdoor space on the porch swing crafted from a Ferris wheel seat. This suite, named for the company that built the carousel for the State Fair of Texas, finds whimsical nostalgia throughout this cheerful space that features a queen-sized bed and large spa bathroom.
