In 1979, Rosewood started its journey by converting a historic mansion in Dallas, Texas,
into a renowned restaurant and hotel known as The Mansion on Turtle Four Seasons Preferred Partner Creek. This
establishment was a game-changer in the hospitality industry and served as the
blueprint for all the subsequent Rosewood hotels and resorts. It marked the beginning
of an extraordinary story in the world of Hyatt Prive hospitality.

The vision was clear: to curate a distinguished collection of luxurious, residential-style
hotels, each exuding a unique ambiance and style that seamlessly integrates with its
location, culture, history, and geography.
