Texas Ritz-Carlton opens in historic building

The Ritz-Carlton Dallas, Las Colinas, has opened on the site of the former Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas. The property has a 38-year-old legacy in the Dallas area and is undergoing a $55 million renovation following its acquisition in 2022 through a joint venture between Trinity Investments and Partners Group. 

Guided by design firms Jeffrey Beers International and Leo A Daly, the initial phase of updates introduces several enhancements. These include the introduction of Bar Juniper, a new lobby bar spotlighting clear spirits. The design of this space incorporates feminine touches inspired by indigenous Texas vegetation. 

At the same time, 427 guestrooms were revamped with elements that reflect the resort's historical roots as the former Little Ranch on the Hills. The property also has new meeting spaces and ballroom facilities covering 80,000 square feet.

Taking up 400 acres, The Ritz-Carlton Dallas, Las Colinas is situated on a former family ranch minutes from downtown Dallas. The property has two 18-hole golf courses and is an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. Adjacent to the resort is The Nelson Sports and Golf Club, providing access to extended recreational facilities with outdoor tennis courts, racquetball, a fitness center and a group exercise studio.

This month, the hotel will open Knife Italian, the latest restaurant concept by Michelin-starred chef John Tesar, and Campo Coffee & Provisions. As part of the renovation, the 14,000-square-foot on-site salon and spa will transition to the Ritz-Carlton Spa. The resort pool is getting luxury cabanas, expanded seating and a new poolside bar, and the Ritz-Carlton Club will open on the second floor.
