NYLO Hotels LLC is an American boutique hotel chain.[1] The company was founded in 2004 and is headquartered just outside Dallas in Carrollton, Texas.[2] NYLO Hotels includes five urban boutique hotel locations throughout the United States.[3] Each hotel is unique in its design and features food from local businesses, event venues, along with various room sizes that are fashioned to resemble New York loft style apartments.[4]

Company history[edit]

NYLO Hotels was founded in 2004 by a team of hotel executives led by Michael Mueller.[5] Co-founder Michael Mueller has also served as CEO since 2011.[6] Previously, Mueller was an executive with Starwood Capital Group and Starwood Hotels & Resorts, one of the largest hotel groups in the world.[4][7] Mueller oversaw the acquisition of Westin Hotels and Sheraton Hotels and Resorts and also helped engineer the W Hotel brand while he was with Starwood from 1994 until 2004 when he co-founded NYLO Hotels.[4][8]

NYLO stands for New York lofts in which the company models its hotels after. When the company first began operating after its founding, it was headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.[9] At the end of 2007, NYLO opened its pioneering hotel in Plano, Texas,[10] later followed by two more hotels in the Dallas/Ft. Worth district.[4] NYLO also has hotels in Rhode Island and New York City. The company remained based out of Atlanta until 2011 when it relocated to the Dallas area.[7]


The NYLO Hotel brand features urban styled guestrooms combining old buildings with modern design.[5] The brand name, NYLO refers to the loft style apartments found throughout New York, but the company is focused on introducing designer hotels to secondary and tertiary markets.[8] The company has aimed its attention to providing designer style to mid-scale priced hotels that are business-travel-friendly.[11]

NYLO Hotels is also focused on eco-friendly and energy-efficient operations. In 2012, the NYLO Dallas South Side location became one of 69 hotels in the United States to achieve LEED Gold certification.[12] Other NYLO locations utilize eco-friendly initiatives such as wind power, recycled building materials, and energy-efficient light bulbs.[13]


  • NYLO Plano at Legacy, located in Plano, Texas, was the first NYLO Hotel location and the first loft lifestyle hotel to open in the United States.[10] The hotel has 176 guest lofts with approximately half of the hotel's energy needs comes from wind power.[10]
  • NYLO Providence/Warwick, located just outside Providence, Rhode Island, was originally opened in 2008, but closed for over 12 months of renovations following the historic flood of 2010.[14] The hotel reopened in 2011 and features 163 rooms and overlooks the Pawtuxet River.[15]
  • NYLO Las Colinas/Irving, located in Irving, Texas, is the third NYLO Hotel with 200 guest lofts.[16] The hotel also features a 7,500 square-foot courtyard with two heated pools and is a 100 percent energy renewable certificate recipient.[16]
  • NYLO Dallas South Side located in Dallas, Texas and is the smallest location with 76 rooms. The five-story building includes a rooftop bar and pool called SODA Bar which is an acronym for South Dallas.[2][17]
  • NYLO New York City opened in 2013 as the largest NYLO Hotel with 291 rooms. The NYC location also features a piano lounge, library, sidewalk cafe, and main bar.[18][19]
