​​​The old Cabana Motor Hotel in Dallas, which was for a time a minimum security correctional facility until it was sold by Dallas County to be redeveloped.​DALLAS – Work is moving ahead to save a landmark Dallas hotel.

The 56-year-old former Cabana Motor Hotel on Stemmons Fwy. on the edge of downtown Dallas is being restored by Centurion American Development Group.

The company plans to convert the old hotel to 262 new rooms plus restaurants.

Centurion also intends to build a 140,000-sf apartment tower on top of the old hotel garage.

The building served as a minimum security jail for years before it was left vacant and sold by Dallas County.​​

The Cabana, constructed by Las Vegas developer Jay Sarno, who also built Caesar's Palace and Circus Circus, was once one of Dallas' most fashionable accommodations.
