In Dallas, the Beeman Hotel, formerly known as The Magnolia Hotel, has completed a top-to-bottom renovation.

The overhaul includes upgraded guestrooms, a new lobby lounge, an upgraded indoor pool with a new outdoor area, the addition of a grab-and-go-market, a new barbecue restaurant concept and 12,000 square feet of private event and meeting space. 

The redesign, led by locally based Studio 11 Design and Carrell Partners & Yost Architects, is meant to evoke Dallas’ “unique diversity” and to bring together the many personalities and cultures that make up the city.
The central design feature in the hotel’s 297 guestrooms is the accent wall featuring a geometrically muraled wallcovering, including deep tones with pops of color throughout. The property gets its name from one of the pioneering settlers of East Dallas, John Beeman, and in order to incorporate Dallas’ history into the design, the rooms all include rustic elements such as sliding barn doors as a nod to the city’s humble beginnings. The hotel’s hospitality suites have also been upgraded to include tailored lines as well as modern flooring and accents to match.
The corridors and lobby lounge blend the styles of Dallas’ eclectic downtown area, the industrial atmosphere of the Deep Ellum district and the refined sensibility of the Park Cities communities by mixing saddle leather chairs, metallic accents, and pink pillows and throws. Simultaneously, the indoor pool and outdoor space, located on the main floor, have a more free-spirited edge with a playful color palette, string lights, greenery and a two-story mural featuring Dallas icons such as the Pegasus—a symbol of the city.
The property, managed by Evolution Hospitality, will soon be opening Seely’s Mill Texas BBQ restaurant on the main floor for guests and locals.
