Looking for a unique stay in Dallas TX? Look no further than the Lorenzo Hotel, filled with an abundance of art and history that you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. Originally built in 1971, Dallas’ Lorenzo Hotel doubles as a museum after a total remodel and its reopening in 2017. From the hotel rooms to the drinks, there is nothing that isn’t artful in some way, shape, or form. Poke around a bit and you might even find a hidden room!
Sleep in Style
Whether choosing a guestroom, suite, or themed room, you’ll be sure to sleep like a star at the Lorenzo Hotel. Both the guestrooms and suites have floor-to-ceiling windows for a beautiful view of the city and are carefully decorated with art from local artists. You can even bring pets under 40 pounds to enjoy this exceptional trip with a $100, non-refundable fee. Check out where else you can bring your furry friend here when you’re feeling like venturing away from home.
The Lorenzo Hotel also offers themed suites for those looking for a quirky get-away. Midnight, Escape, Safari, and Raj are the newest additions with decor chosen to make a statement. From colorful headboards, exotically patterned carpets, and huge black and white prints plastered to the wall to extravagant chandeliers and beautifully patterned ceilings.
Looking for extra space? Book one of the three premium themed suites, which include a richly furnished lounge area with picture-perfect views overlooking Dallas. You could even sleep in the same room Tina Turner did! After her husband beat her, Tina decided to leave while he slept. With nothing but a Mobil credit card and 36 cents, she asked for a room at what was then the Ramada Inn and was granted a presidential suite. Now named the Cake Suite and the Lorenzo Hotel, this premium theme suite holds numerous pieces of art as a tribute to Tina Turner.
In addition to Cake, Zen and Nomad (pictured below) are the Lorenzo Hotel’s other two premium theme suites. As you can see, they are remarkably unique from each other.

Order their most famous cocktail, the Picasso, made with buffalo trace bourbon, strawberries, honey, and mint in a fitting, fancy cocktail glass. Look out for their monthly feature cocktails!
To add to the pristine and sophisticated atmosphere, the Lorenzo Hotel also features live jazz music every Friday and Saturday night from 7pm to 10pm. As you listen, chow down on the carefully crafted food of well-traveled chef, Kubilay Onder, who has had his creations featured in the Dallas Observer and Papercity Magazine.
To complement the artistic focus of the Lorenzo Hotel, Hamilton’s is an art gallery in the most obvious but also the most tasteful ways. Photos of famous artists are framed in uniquely shaped frames, mirrors cover the ceiling, and the bright pink chairs and shapely furniture give off a vibe of a studio that cranks out the wildest high fashion designs.
