City Hotel Spotlight: Dallas, TX
Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek
The Rosewood Mansion is a luxurious hotel located along Turtle Creek Boulevard which hugs the actual Turtle Creek. This particular hotel makes the spotlight because of its historical background.
The original mansion was built as an estate for a cotton baron. A fire in the 1920’s destroyed much of the original building, but it was rebuilt with European inspiration. For a number of years it served as a popular destination in high society social scenes. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Tennessee Williams were just two of the famous guests to grace their presence at these parties.
In 1979, Rosewood Property Company purchased the mansion and opened in 1980 as a hotel. It has undergone some renovations but has always stayed true to its past through meticulous restoration.

The Joule, located in downtown Dallas, is a five star boutique hotel that houses 164 rooms. The hotel was originally constructed as a bank in 1927 and was later known as the SPG Building. The Gothic high-rise was later converted into the luxurious hotel.
The design was done by award-winning designer, Adam D. Tihany, and can give some art galleries a run for their money. Well known for its impressive pool, The Joule also has a breathtaking rooftop deck, ideal for wedding receptions and corporate meetings.
