Take a Look at the AC Hotel and Residence Inn Dallas Completed with Neolith Stone
Neolith, manufacturer of ultra-compact sintered stone surfacing, recently completed one of its latest U.S. projects at the AC Hotel and Residence Inn Dallas by the Galleria using Calacatta Silk slabs along the exterior of its 5,000-square-foot entrance façade.
The hotel, developed by Pacific Hospitality Group Ventures, is the company’s first hotel in Texas and the first dual-branded Marriott. Designed by Dallas-based architecture firm 5G Studio Collaborative, the striking façade features thoughtfully designed trapezoid-shaped slabs that were carefully fabricated by Holland Marble to create an elegant and modern juxtaposition akin to puzzle pieces.
The fabricators at Holland Marble oversaw each of the installers while completing the façade, ensuring seamless delivery of the unique design by using Neolith’s StrongFix installation method. Calacatta, part of Neolith’s Classtone collection, faithfully recreates the look of Italian marble, and offers a design with a very well-distributed and uniform grey vein along the slab that optimizes its use irrespective of the type of use or format. The greyish mesh with subtle hints of gold lies on a bright white background, which brings light and vitality to the place where it is used. The color was selected for its natural, yet chic appearance, and because its light hue keeps exterior facades cool in hot weather. Well-known for its uses in kitchen and bath applications, this project represents one of Calacatta’s first uses as exterior cladding, showcasing Neolith’s versatility and durability in each of their products.
In addition to the incredible exteriors, the stylish hotel offers its visitors two different options to choose from, including The AC Hotel with its stylish, European flair and 140 guestrooms and it is designed for shorter stays. The kitchen and lounge at the AC Hotel bring European-inspired food and cocktails, with Spanish wines and tapas-style menu available.
The Residence Inn Dallas by the Galleria offers 116 suites that caters more to longer stays, and gives guests a more spacious, functional living space, including a fully-equipped en suite kitchen.
The fusion of the two brands means that guests of the AC Hotel and Residence Inn Dallas by the Galleria hotel will have access to the best of both brands, such as guest laundry facilities at the Residence Inn, and the co-working space/night-time lounge at the AC Lounge, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center, outdoor pool and complimentary Wi-Fi.
The hotel officially opened to the public last spring.
