Hey, if anyone online right now or very soon has a landscape picture of Tower Petroleum from any date, that is decent quality and does not mind letting Teresa Gubbins use for an article (w/credit) at Culture Map Dallas, can you jump on facebook (or twitter) and send one to her? I don't have the time right now to walk over and take one myself.

Here's Ms. Gubbins's article:

This project has gone rather quick, once the financing was in place. Somewhere I thought I had read that the hotel (Tower Petrolium) was to come after the residences (Corrigan Tower), but it seems they are now slated to open contemporaneously.

Good to see the ground floor of 1907 Elm lit up.

Crappy iPhone nighttime shots, but you can get an idea of the lighting on the crown. The 2nd floor upward is also lighted along the vertical brick areas. The crown has a really interesting dotted "V" pattern on it if you look closely. Cycles between lots of colors, but so far has tended to be either dark blue or violet.

I love the lighting so far on both buildings. Supposedly someone has signed a lease for the retail space next to the Majestic. This hotel and residences will make that a more popular lease for sure. In addition to the coming park. My next question will be who owns the giant surface parking at Elm and Harwood? That will be much more attractive with the new park and this development.

The vacant space at the Hart Furniture building is rumored to be leased, but nothing has been announced yet to my knowledge.

So glad they decided to light the buildings.

Agreed. Very excited to see the finished look.

The Cambria Suites' Facebook page has a few pics posted of their finished areas (bar, lounge, front desk, rooms).

I've seen pictures of 1980s worker cubicles with a similar color green, and mauve.

Walked by the Cambria hotel this morning and noticed that it is open for business. Still no liquor license for the bar but the lobby looks really nice.

Found this hotel-level site through their Facebook page:
http://www.cambriadallas.com
No menu yet listed for their bistro. A few of the hotel amenities are listed; there are 177 rooms on 23 floors.

Tried their phone # (214/220-2900) and no answer... busy? not by the phone?

The hotel's Choice Hotels site is taking reservations (most rates around $117) but on-site pictures don't seem to have been updated there.

There is a TripAdvisor site for the Cambria, but no one has posted any stay opinions or green buttons (like stars on other sites) yet.

Downtown Dallas' landmark Tower Petroleum Building is reopening as a hotel

https://www.dallasnews.com/business/rea ... ning-hotel

Developers redoing an art deco downtown Dallas landmark are just two weeks away from a grand opening. The 23-story Tower Petroleum Building on Elm Street is being converted into a Cambria Hotel.


The hotel adjoins the 18-story Corrigan Tower, which Kirtland has renovated into 150 apartments with ground floor retail space.


The Cambria Downtown Dallas hotel in the Tower Petroleum Building will have 177 rooms, a full-service restaurant and bar plus meeting space.

I drove by there a few nights ago, and there's no 'Cambria' or 'Cambria Hotel' outdoor sign yet. The only way to see its branding at a glance are flat-screen monitors placed at several of the front windows.

They do advertising on the on court Ad panels for Dallas Mavericks home games.

Perhaps they’re saving the exterior Cambria sign for the grand opening in 2 weeks.
