Le Méridien Dallas, The Stoneleigh was established in October of 1923 nestled on the corner of Maple Avenue and Wolf Street. One of the first, historic jewels in Dallas’s famed hotel crown embodies modern luxury with rich culture and European influences. Originally recognized as The Stoneleigh Court Apartment Hotel, it has made a lasting earnest impression on its guests. The beaux-art style building was originally designed by F.J. Woerner, which ignited high-rise luxury-style living in Dallas.
The unique Stoneleigh interior was perfectly originated by Dorothy Draper, the first female interior design firm owner in the United States. Her black and white floral wallpaper located on the 11th floor was turned upside down during installation, due to Draper’s artistic eye for design and forever created her legendary design trademark and made her iconic colorful prints famous worldwide.
On September 4th, Perle on Maple will be serving their specialty 25th Anniversary DFW Restaurant week menu for the last time. As the largest culinary event in North Texas, nearly 100 restaurants are participating in the event by offering specialty menus and pledges to local charities. The Perle on Maple at The Stoneleigh Hotel is offering two specialty prix-fixe menus created by Executive Chef Esayas Estifanos for both lunch and dinner.

Sip and savor your way through a special Freemark Abbey wine dinner hosted by Estate Manager Barry Dodds at The Stoneleigh’s new French-inspired restaurant, Perle on Maple.
As one of Napa’s oldest wineries with a legacy 130 years in the making, Freemark Abbey is the perfect partner with the 95-year-old Stoneleigh Hotel. The remarkable tasting experience will begin with a cocktail reception followed by an incredible four-course dinner created by Executive Chef Wade Burch. Continue reading →
