CANVAS Hotel Dallas opened with art-centric accommodations, a rooftop lounge and pool, eclectic meeting and event spaces and a new lobby restaurant. Formerly known as NYLO Dallas South Side, CANVAS is managed by INTRIGUE Hotels & Resorts, the independent lifestyle division of Interstate Hotels & Resorts.
"CANVAS Dallas Hotel is a timely addition to the burgeoning district of South Dallas," said Jack Matthews, president of Matthews Southwest, lead developer and co-owner. "With a prime location in the heart of the Cedars district, and in close proximity to downtown and the convention center, CANVAS is nestled in an eclectic neighborhood undergoing a renaissance in terms of culture, shopping, food, art, and music.”
The hotel offers 76 guest rooms and suites that feature loft-style design with 10- to 12-foot high ceilings, pressed concrete flooring, exposed brick and industrial elements and fixtures. New custom carpeting, lighting and art has been installed in all public areas and guest hallways, and the lobby has been reconfigured to be more conducive to social gatherings, common work areas and meeting the needs of the modern hotel guest.
The interior design, decor and artistic elements were directed by Dallas-based Studio 11 Design. The property paints a fresh perspective of its original building, a structure integral to the history of South Dallas that is almost a century old, that has been well-preserved, refurbished and now LEED certified.
There is nearly 7,000 square feet of meeting and event space on-site, including the Gallery Rooftop Lounge as well as interior spaces.
The hotel features two art-inspired restaurants and lounges. Chef's Palette is the redesigned first-level lounge and restaurant that offers small plates, entrées and cocktails. The restaurant's dining area converts into flexible meeting space, divided by a sliding glass partition.
The rooftop bar formerly known as SODA has been redesigned and renamed The Gallery Rooftop Lounge. The indoor/outdoor lounge offers a 270-degree view of the Dallas skyline.
