Step into the newest NYLO hotel location, a revamped historic 102-year-old factory, and you’ll fall in love with the sophisticated loft-style rooms and suites, the cosmopolitan rooftop bar and heated pool, and cool urban vibe. But there’s more to this upscale boutique than what is on the surface. The abandoned factory was refurbished into a trendy boutique hotel using an eye for aesthetics and a passion for eco-conscious design. The green construction and operation practices utilized by the hotel earned the location a LEED Gold Certification, making the NYLO Dallas South Side one of only 69 LEED Gold hotels in the country, and the first NYLO hotel to earn that distinction. Looking for a lodging option that outshines all those cookie cutter hotels? The NYLO Dallas South Side is ready to offer you a stay you won’t soon forget.
Turning an historic landmark into a fresh and modern hotel required careful collaboration and planning. NYLO worked closely with local architects 5G Studio Collaborative and developers Matthews Southwest to preserve the industrial urban feel of a factory, while adapting and reusing much of the original structure, and then putting in place the latest in green technology to ensure the new hotel was highly efficient with a low carbon footprint. The result was something entirely unique. NYLO CEO Michael Mueller says of the Dallas South Side project, “Cutting edge refers to more than just NYLO’s unique design and décor. When it comes to environmental stewardship, NYLO is recognized among the leaders and top innovators in the hotel industry. We are proud to continue this stewardship and honored with the LEED Gold certification awarded to NYLO Dallas South Side hotel.”
The new boutique hotel features 76 loft-style rooms, all eco-friendly, plus eight suites that offer sitting and dining room areas with connected loft sleeping areas. All rooms have 10 foot ceilings, flat screen TVs, trendy polished concrete floors, local artwork, and Wi-Fi. You’ll also experience one of the most comfortable and relaxing night’s sleep that is possible on the award-winning NYLO NYTE mattress and luxury linens. All the touches you would expect from an upscale hotel can be found at the NYLO Dallas South Side, from cozy bathrobes and free bottled water to a Bose stereo system and a Kohler high pressure shower head in the bathroom. The custom-made furniture, large windows and exposed brick make each room and suite feel like a trendy uptown loft rather than a hotel room.
Guests of NYLO’s Dallas South Side hotel can enjoy rest and relaxation within the hotel, or explore all Dallas has to offer just steps away from the hotel. You’ll have close access to the business district, where you can immerse yourself in the Art or Design districts, visit the Perot Museum, take in a live music show, eat at one of Dallas's fabulous eateries, or attend your professional event at the Dallas Convention Center. If you plan to stay in at the hotel, you can enjoy a sophisticated night on the rooftop, with full views of the vibrant Dallas skyline, as you mingle at the SODA bar near the heated pool. Or, enjoy a meal at the hotel’s Terrace Bistro & Bar where you can eat a comforting meal created with seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients, while you take in the restaurant’s beautifully decorated ambiance.
Nothing is more important to the NYLO Dallas South Side than giving guests a luxurious lodging experience that is also the “greenest” around. All NYLO hotels operate with 50% Renewable Energy Credits, and the Dallas South Side location is no different. During the renovation and construction phase of the hotel, before its opening in August 2012, the team of architects, planners and builders worked to ensure LEED Gold standards were met. This meant the addition of a 3,900 gallon cistern for rainwater collection, blocking solar heat by placing low-E film on existing windows, reusing materials, installing highly energy efficient fixtures, and recycling construction waste. Once the hotel opened, the commitment to green didn’t stop. In fact, it’s common practice at the NYLO Dallas South Side: eco-friendly food containers, energy efficient lighting, a bottled water purification system, and key-activated room electricity.
If you’re looking for a hotel experience that is above and beyond most traditional lodging spots, you’ll find exactly what you seek at the NYLO Dallas South Side hotel. From the industrial chic character of the design and décor, to the true commitment to preserving our history and our future through thoughtful management and eco-consciousness, this sophisticated lodging option is sure to leave a positive lasting impression long after you check out.
