DALLAS, Texas—The Joule Dallas hotel is nearing the completion of its two-year, $78 million renovation and expansion of five interconnected downtown Dallas buildings. The Joule occupies a revitalized 1920′s neo-gothic landmark building on Main Street. An iconic building from award-winning designer Adam D. Tihany, the hotel is filled with thoughtful architectural details, rich furnishings, and original artwork from Andy Warhol, Tony Cragg, Adam Fuss, and Richard Phillips.
Tihany’s contribution to the recent expansion of The Joule builds on the original vision of the hotel. The property’s second tower added 32 guestrooms, bringing the total to 161 guestrooms. In addition to the new 21 Premier Guestrooms and eight Deluxe Suites, three penthouse units have been created for the most discerning of guests. Two penthouses are multi-level, each with a private terrace, and the third occupies an entire top floor, offering panoramic views of the city.
The expansion almost tripled the hotel’s programmable meeting space to more than 14,000 square feet with the addition of two new ballrooms, three additional meeting rooms, a pre-function area to the existing ballroom level and a rooftop terrace. The literal highpoint to the event space expansion is the rooftop Joule Terrace—featuring a climate-controlled pavilion with retractable roof, entry via glass elevator shaft, and skyline views.
Equipped with upgraded technology, each meeting room allows for seamless integration of computer, video, and audio equipment. Wireless high speed internet access, a state-of-the-art digital audio/visual system, and touchscreen audio/visual controls ensure ease of use and streamlined design. From small board meetings to seated dinners for more than 300 guests, The Joule offers event space for a wide array of gatherings.
