THE FORMER STATLER HOTEL
In 2011, Ricchi Development Group acquired the former hotel located in Downtown Dallas, Texas, which opened in 1956 as the original 1,000 room Statler Hilton Hotel and served as Dallas’ Convention Center Hotel.
Often referred to as the “Grand Dame” of Downtown Dallas, the Statler Hotel was designed by William Tabler and was the first glass and metal hotel in the nation. In 2008, it was named one of America’s eleven most endangered historic places by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The Ricchi group was responsible for clean up, partial asbestos remediation and restoring and illuminating the exterior. It was sold in 2014.
