JW Marriott Dallas Arts District, the first JW Marriott hotel in the city of Dallas, opened its doors to the public yesterday. With unbeatable access to many of the city’s top cultural attractions and performing arts venues including the Dallas Museum of Art, Winspear Opera House, Meyerson Symphony Center, Crow Museum of Asian Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, AT&T Performing Arts Center, Majestic Theater and Moody Performance Hall, the hotel is a prime destination for locals, leisure and business travelers alike in Dallas.
Dallas boasts the largest contiguous urban arts district in the United States and holds an official “Cultural District'' designation by the Texas Commission on the Arts. Fittingly, JW Marriott Dallas Arts District is a jewel box of fine art, as seen throughout the hotel’s architecture, design, dining and amenities, all while honoring JW Marriott’s principles of prioritizing the mind, body, and soul. Guests can explore many paths to mindfulness, both in the surrounding neighborhood as well as on property through bespoke programming centered around holistic well-being. With a variety of cultural and arts venues conveniently located just steps away from the hotel, guests’ senses can be tested, focus increased and stress reduced.
Located at 800 North Harwood Street in the heart of the country’s largest contiguous arts district, JW Marriott Dallas Arts District features 22 floors, 267 guest rooms including 9 guest suites, named Museum Suites for their prime views of the Dallas Museum of Art, 20,000+ square feet of flexible meeting space with 10 meeting rooms, 24-hour fitness center, Rooftop pool with cabanas and 20 works of regional art on display throughout the property.
The hotel features three elevated dining venues each with its own tie to the artistic community surrounding the hotel. Margaret’s, a three-meal ranch-to-table restaurant located on the 11th floor, honors the memory of philanthropist Margaret McDermott, a longtime supporter of Dallas’ fine arts institutions. Margaret’s menu, incorporating seasonal flavors and ingredients, includes locally sourced Beef Carpaccio smoked tableside; 72-hour Hickory Smoked Prime Bone-in Beef Short Rib served with house barbecue sauce and Texas jalapeño elote;and a Texas Iberico Carbonara of handmade pasta tossed in pecorino cream and braised local Iberico pork cheeks, English peas, wild Texas mushrooms, and a confit yolk topped with brown butter toasted oreganata.
Vincent’s Sky Lounge, a nod to Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, serves cocktails and bites with views of the Dallas night sky from a sensuous mid-air lounge. The chic space features 40-foot ceilings, wrap-around views, inspired art and protection from the elements so that guests can enjoy the atmosphere regardless of the weather.
Following inspiring experiences at local museums and fine arts venues, guests are invited to continue conversations at 800 North, a street-level cocktail lounge aptly named for the hotel’s address, 800 North Harwood Street. A moody and comfortable space, 800 North features innovative and trend-forward cocktails, expertly sourced wines and light bites. All three of the outlets will incorporate herbs grown in the hotel’s JW Garden, an innovative hydroponic Farmshelf system in which herbs are grown to be used as garnishes, in cocktails, and as subtle ingredients in various dishes including the Texas Iberico carbonara and smoked Black Angus carpaccio served at Margaret’s.
