DALLAS, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Joule Dallas hotel is nearing the completion of its two-year, $78 million renovation and expansion of five interconnected downtown Dallas buildings, slated for fall of 2013. The Joule, named for the international unit of energy, occupies a revitalized 1920's neo-gothic landmark building on Main Street. A visual masterpiece 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, Richard Phillips and more.
Tihany's contribution to the recent expansion of The Joule builds on a sensuous hospitality experience, informed by Texan culture and vibrant downtown energy. The vision for the 32 additional guestrooms in the second tower follows his original hotel inspiration — Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth — and retains the luxurious and modern feel of the 129 rooms in the first tower, bringing the total to 161 guestrooms. In addition to the new 21 Premier Guestrooms and eight Deluxe Suites, three ultra-luxe 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 striking panoramic views of the city.
The Joule has emerged as Dallas' ideal location for corporate meetings, special events and weddings. 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 — a beautiful locale featuring a climate-controlled pavilion with retractable roof, entry via majestic glass elevator shaft and amazing skyline views.
Equipped with cutting-edge 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 boasts the quintessential event space for the widest array of gatherings.
Executive Chef Justin Fields oversees the banquet division and takes great pride in carefully sourcing local ingredients to craft a multitude of delicious catering options. His menus feature consciously sourced farm-raised proteins and seasonal produce, mixed with almost anything one would request. Field and his team are committed to creating unforgettable events through creative exchange and collaboration.
