At the heart of the Lone Star State is the Rosewood Crescent, a place where European luxury and sophistication merges with the old Texas charm. This combination of European luxury and American hospitality makes for a destination where guests are welcomed as family but treated like royalty.

From its beginning, Rosewood Crescent was already grand. Its first construction endeavors sought to create a five-story parking garage underground. Counters and floorings were made with all kinds of marble brought all the way from Italy and Spain while slates from Wales were used as roofing. The hotel eclipses the Empire State Building while holding a world record in the total amount of limestone ever used in construction. The hotel is also known for its voluminous amounts of cast aluminum used on décor and trellises placed on its exterior.

Thanks to its central location, luxurious facilities and elegant atmosphere, the hotel has become a romantic destination for people from all walks of life, including the rich and famous such as politicians like Sarah Palin and celebrities like Britney Spears and Cher. Rosewood Crescent has also been the venue for large events like the Gumball 3000 International Road Rally.
