The 178-room —formerly the Stoneleigh Court Hotel—is celebrating its 95th anniversary in Dallas with a recently completed renovation led by local architecture practice . New French restaurant Perle on Maple also opened as part of the refresh.
The hotel’s 11th and 12th floors have been updated to house Texas’ first-ever penthouse, which is outfitted with eight rooms including the grand salon, the historic gallery hall, library bar, music room, drawing room, and dining room. The Dorothy Draper suite and presidential suite have also been meticulously revamped to channel modern baroque styles with new carpeting, draperies, lighting, and artwork to complement original standout details.
The midcentury-informed Perle on Maple reinterprets modern baroque themes with navy French banquettes, gold leaf and steel accents, and signature white brick walls. A glass art installation inspired by the Parisian landmark Maison de Verre is also featured within the eatery alongside the laidback bar area. Alfresco seating is also included.
