Following 26 consecutive years of AAA Four Diamond awards—the longest Four Diamond run in Dallas—The Westin Galleria Dallas, located within the impressive Galleria Complex with over 200 shops, restaurants and attractions, completed a multi-million dollar renovation in 2009. Constructed in 1983 with the Galleria Complex as part of this luxury development of North Dallas, from the beginning we have been entertaining local society's upper echelons, with the permanent dance floor of our Dallas Ballroom hosting weddings of prestigious Dallas families, including Dallas Cowboys and their alumnae.
The Westin Galleria Dallas's major renovation covered all areas of the hotel, which now exudes a vibrant synergy with the upscale shopping experience just beyond our lobby. The guest rooms were transformed and expanded to incorporate a contemporary and sophisticated feel. New noise-resistant and energy-efficient glass windows were installed, and artwork created by Texas Big Bend photographer favorite James H. Evans now adorns the rooms.
The unique residential ambiance found throughout the hotel is owing, in part, to famed designer Marcel Wanders’ Cappellini Big Shadows podium light fixtures, which are showcased in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Also helping to reignite our synergy with the high-end Galleria Complex, British fashion designer Paul Smith created the fabric for the ottomans in our public spaces, while Hella Jongerius, regarded as one of the most innovative and creative designers working today, designed much of the fabric in the new luxury suites.
Our redesign also included the transformation of the 21st floor into a new Westin Executive Club Lounge, as well as unique Sky Rooms where guests can enjoy a phenomenal view of the Dallas skyline from the most traveled intersection in the city. An expanded Westin WORKOUT® Gym was added in keeping with the Westin philosophy of creating an optimal environment for health, tranquility and renewal. Each of the hotel’s fully-renovated, spacious guest rooms boasts the signature Westin Heavenly Bed® as well as a 100% smoke-free environment.
