DALLAS – The landmark Fairmount Hotel is renovating its exterior after completing interior upgrades in 2020.
Located on Ross Ave., the 545-room hotel will be repainted a lighter color and undergo stone refurbishment. The upgrades will reference the hotel’s past white exterior that was painted brown in the 1980s.
Originally started in 1961 as a mixed-use project, the Fairmount hotel opened in 1969 after the San Franciso-based Swig family took over construction following the development’s financial collapse.
An affiliate of Illinois-based Inland American Lodging Group has owned the hotel since 2011.
