A hotel on the edge of the Park Cities in Dallas is ready for the spotlight after a top-to-bottom renovation: The Beeman Hotel, previously known as The Magnolia Hotel, has reopened with 297 enhanced guest rooms and suites, new amenities, and a new BBQ restaurant coming soon.

Located at 6070 N. Central Expy., just north of Mockingbird Station, the Beeman is the former Magnolia Hotel Park Cities, which was rebranded and renovated by Convexity Properties in 2019.

Originally, it was a Radisson Inn. It became a Holiday Inn in 2012, then the Magnolia in 2015.

If you were driving down US-75, it was the hotel with the cool weird panels of light. But boo, those are gone.

According to a release, they had a soft opening in June. Now they're saying that all of their new amenities are ready to roll. Except the restaurant which is still, as mentioned, coming soon.

They've spruced up the rooms, upgraded the pool, added a new outdoor area, and created a grab-and-go market.

Led by locally based Studio 11 and Carrell Partners & Yost Architects, the redesign includes clean, tailored lines and an artistic flair such as unexpected uses of color in the rooms, with an accent wall featuring a geometrically muraled wallcovering and rustic elements such as sliding barn doors, which they claim are a nod to Dallas' "humble beginnings."

Other renovated public spaces include the corridors, fitness center, meeting spaces, and the indoor pool, with elements of Dallas' eclectic downtown, industrial Deep Ellum, and what they call the refined sensibility of Park Cities, by mixing saddle leather chairs, metallic accents, and pink pillows and throws.

The pink pillows are obvs the Park Cities refined part.

The indoor pool and outdoor space is located on main floor and now boasts string lights, greenery, golden rubber duckies, and a two-story mural featuring Dallas icons such as the Pegasus.

The property gets its name from John Beeman, one of the pioneering settlers of East Dallas.

As far as the restaurant goes, they do have a name, but not much else: Called Seely's Mill Texas BBQ restaurant, it'll be on the main floor for guests and locals, with a menu inspired by Texas' famed BBQ, including smokers on site.
