EMBASSY SUITES DALLAS UPTOWN
Designed for a small lot of less than an acre in Uptown Dallas near Downtown, this 20-story Embassy Suites hotel featured 250 guestrooms, lobby, restaurant, meeting rooms, outdoor pool and parking for 250 cars.
Due to site constraints the guestroom tower concept featured the unique use of multiple Embassy Suites rooms types: the Embassy side-by-side room types wrapped around the Portfolio-developed upgraded shotgun room from the award winning Houston hotel.
A particular challenge on this small footprint, the parking structure proved difficult and required the use of jump ramp levels and close City negotiations to meet hotel and developer requirements.
The project was unrealized due to financing.
