ABOUT THE BELMONT
Built in 1946, the Belmont Hotel was designed by Charles Stevens Dilbeck and is an example of the Art Moderne architectural style. The hotel was one of the first in the area to offer year-around air conditioning. Renovated in 2005, the boutique hotel remains true to Dilbeck’s vision, yet presents modern room accommodations. The Belmont is a gathering place for locals and visitors and boasts one of the best views of the downtown Dallas skyline.
