Dawson Design Associates designs Hotel Sorella Country Club Plaza

Valencia Group revealed an addition to its Hotel Valencia brand with the opening of Hotel Sorella Country Club Plaza in Kansas City.  International interior design firm Dawson Design Associates led the property’s design.

The newly-constructed property has a fusion of modern design and Mediterranean inspiration, with details mirroring the Plaza's own influence of Spanish Seville, such as the rooftop pool and Renaissance-style artwork.

Upon entering the lobby, guests will experience a contemporary modern twist of blown Venetian glass chandeliers, intricate custom marble tile mosaics inset into white marble floors, hand carved elaborate wood paneling, and Renaissance inspired paintings. Guestrooms continue the design, with hardwoods transitioning from entry to the bed. Shades of blue, white and charcoal surround the headboard tapestry.
