Fusing its Swiss heritage with Texan hospitality (as denoted by its moniker), Hôtel Swexan in Dallas exudes timeless European style and Texas warmth. Harwood International’s 134-room boutique destination honors the world’s grandest cities throughout its design.

Interior details call to mind a classical 19th-century Parisian residence-turned-hotel, with comfortable yet elegant furnishings, hand-carved stone and wooden fireplaces on every floor. Meanwhile, Japanese architect Kengo Kuma imagined the exterior to connect with the landscape, its mirrored walls seemingly blending in while reflecting the vibrant surroundings.

“Designing the building’s façades was like tailoring a suit—precise and crisp in the Swiss approach yet relaxed and robust in the Texan spirit—made of local materials,” Kuma says. To top it all off, the hotel’s array of amenities includes an infinity rooftop pool that invites guests to relax and unwind with panoramic views of the city.
