JW Marriott offers new space to stay and dine in Dallas' Arts District
Nearly four years in the making, the JW Marriott Dallas Arts District has officially opened its doors to the public.
Located at 800 N. Harwood St., it's the first JW Marriott hotel in the city of Dallas, and is from Sam Moon Group, whose real estate portfolio includes shopping centers, a golf course, and hotels such as the Renaissance Dallas which they opened at Plano Legacy West, Hyatt Place Alliance in Fort Worth, and Hyatt Regency Stonebriar in Frisco.
The property has 22 floors, 267 guest rooms, nine guest suites (named Museum Suites for their views of the Dallas Museum of Art), 10 meeting rooms, a 24-hour fitness center, rooftop pool with cabanas, and 20 works of regional art on display.
It'll add a new place to stay and dine in the Arts District.
We are here today to discuss the restaurants. There are three:
Three-meal restaurant on the 11th floor honors the memory of philanthropist Margaret McDermott, longtime supporter of Dallas arts. Menu items from chef Jonah Friedmann include Beef Carpaccio smoked tableside; 72-hour Hickory Smoked Prime Bone-in Beef Short Rib with BBQ sauce and Texas jalapeño elote; and a Texas Iberico Carbonara pasta tossed in pecorino cream and braised Iberico pork cheeks, English peas, Texas mushrooms, and a confit yolk topped with brown-butter-toasted oreganata.
Vincent’s Sky Lounge. A nod to Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, this 11th-floor space with wrap-around views and 40-foot ceilings serves cocktails and bites with views of the Dallas night sky. It's protected from the elements so that guests can enjoy the atmosphere regardless of the weather.
800 North. Street level cocktail lounge, named for the hotel's address, will be there for your apres needs, following experiences at local museums and fine arts venues. Moody yet comfortable, 800 North features trendy cocktails, wines, and light bites.
JW Garden. Hydroponic Farmshelf system growing herbs to be used as garnishes, in cocktails, and various dishes including the Texas Iberico carbonara and smoked Black Angus carpaccio served at Margaret’s.
JW Market. Located on the 11th floor near the grand staircase, the market serves Illy coffee products, healthy to-go breakfast, and lunch options, as well as gourmet pastries prepared fresh daily.
Other spaces include:
The Blank Canvas Room, named the Pearl Room, is an all-white room with hardwood flooring that can be customized to suit clients’ needs. The Pearl is ideal for brainstorming and strategy sessions with 3,555 square feet which can be configured in flexible formations. The Pearl Room is the first Blank Canvas in a JW Marriott hotel.
Four serene spaces are tucked into niches within the hotel’s lobby and pre-function areas, for guests to discreetly step away, take a break or connect with their thoughts. Soft upholstered seating in meditative colors and textures offer a brief respite.
The Executive Lounge is spacious and adaptable for large groups to gather for breakfast or cocktails before or after conference meetings within the hotel or within the surrounding Arts District.
