About Hilton Anatole
The Hilton Anatole is a hotel located at 2201 Stemmons Freeway in the Market Center District near downtown Dallas, Texas (USA). Featuring 1,606 guest rooms, it is one of the largest hotels in the Southwest and is a major convention and meeting facility. Over 1,000 art objects, including a casting of Riding Into the Sunset, are located throughout the resort setting and the hotel features the five-star Nana Restaurant. The Loews Anatole was developed in the late 1970s by Trammell Crow as part of his huge Dallas Market Center complex. The hotel opened in 1979 with 1,000 rooms in two pyramid-topped buildings. In 1984, a 27-story tower containing 700 rooms, a ballroom, meeting space, shops, a health club and a seven-acre garden was added to the hotel. In 1995 Wyndham Hotels, a company owned by the Crow family, took over management of the hotel and expanded meeting facilities. It was the largest hotel in the Southwest until the opening of the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in 1998. In 2005, management of the Anatole transferred from Wyndham Hotels to Hilton Hotels Corp. and the hotel was re-branded. As of 2010, the hotel was the host of the great video-gaming event, the QuakeCon several times.
