In Texas, the Fairmont Dallas hotel is updating its second-floor meeting room prefunction areas, hallways and the nearly 18,000-square-foot Regency Ballroom, combining classic elegance with a Texan flair.
The walls are balanced with navy blues and flecks of muted gold tones throughout the spaces. Doors and door frames are painted a warm white tone to offer a deep contrast between the colors. The carpet has been designed to mimic the archway windows at the front entrance of the hotel. New touchscreen reader boards have been installed with information available to guests and event attendees.
The Regency Ballroom, the largest meeting and event room at the hotel, has new chandeliers, carpeting, curtains, paint and 15 new chandeliers with elements of hanging glass and bronze to tie the ballroom together. A frosted window treatment will be added to all of the windows to maintain natural light throughout the ballroom while offering an elegant aesthetic.
A technology nook in the prefunction area has several plug-ins for charging portable electronic devices and a tabletop ready for pre- or post-meeting work. Seating in the public spaces will encourage event attendees and guests alike to sit and socialize.
Several eco-friendly practices have been implemented to ensure the hotel is leading with a green footprint. The property is replacing its current skylights with energy-efficient recessed lighting throughout the prefunction areas and hallway. Bathrooms on the second floor also have been updated with new fixtures, including energy-efficient lighting and eco-friendly faucets.
In total, the hotel has more than 70,000 square feet of flexible meeting space that can accommodate up to 800 people. Public spaces include Pyramid Restaurant & Bar and The Lobby Bar, a rooftop pool, a rooftop garden and apiary, a 24-hour fitness center and more.
