Cambria Dallas Downtown partially opened in late 2017, and will now be completely open on March 1st. The new modern hotel is located in the iconic Tower Petroleum Building. John Kirtland, a Dallas-based real estate developer saw potential in the vintage building that was originally built in 1931. Embracing the building’s history, Kirtland purchased the Tower Petroleum building and neighboring Corrigan Tower.

“I’m so proud to finally open the doors to Cambria Dallas,” said Kirtland. “The Tower Petroleum Building is already such a cool building with rich history, and with the latest, contemporary touches, we’ve truly brought the vision to life.”

This up and coming 23-floor boutique-style hotel will offer 177 rooms and high-quality TechnoGym equipment. The full-service restaurant and bar offers a classic American menu, with everything from Texas-raised steaks to shareable dishes and small plates. The bar features custom, Texas-distilled cocktails and happy hour offerings. With 1,500 square feet of flexible meeting space, the hotel is perfect for any gathering, with audio and visual technology to ensure the event goes seamlessly and successfully.

The exterior is decorated with iconic zigzag and an intricate interior façade, every turn is a surprise. “This hotel is going to fill a much-needed niche in the downtown Dallas area,” said Lacy Lamm, general manager at Cambria Dallas. “With a cool, modern environment and high-end offerings, the Cambria Dallas is upscale, but not uptight. We look forward to welcoming guests, and delivering the best in boutique accommodations and genuine hospitality.”
