The Embassy Suites by Hilton Jonesboro Red Wolf Convention Center has joined Arkansas State University’s campus, providing guests with full-service accommodations. Located one hour away from Memphis, TN, and two hours away from Little Rock, the hotel offers warmly designed guest rooms, a 40,000-square-foot Red Wolf Convention Center and Houlihan’s restaurant.

Dallas-based MatchLine Design Group worked collaboratively with BRP Architects to craft the design of the hotel’s public spaces, guest rooms, convention center ballroom and restaurant. Biophilic elements are woven throughout the property; the lobby is outfitted with nature-inspired artwork, a green wall and fountain, abstract carpeting inspired by local lakes, along with wooden ceiling tiles and accent walls.

The Embassy Suites by Hilton Jonesboro Red Wolf Convention Center offers 16 meeting rooms and 203 guest rooms. Other amenities onsite include an indoor pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, a business center, and the meeting and event space at the Red Wolf Convention Center with a 15,00-square-foot grand ballroom.

Located in the heart of Uptown Dallas within the 11-acre Crescent Complex is Hotel Crescent Court, which recently completed the renovation to its Crescent Ballroom Wing including the Crescent Ballroom, Garden Room, Salons, Executive Boardroom and Crescent Wing Foyer. Creating a simplistic backdrop to modernize meetings and events, the new design gives a nod to the original founder—the late Caroline Rose Hunt, by keeping the artwork from her personal, curated collection.
