Grapevine, Texas is home to the Gaylord Texan Resort. Set amidst rolling pastureland on Grapevine Lake is this fountain of Texas hospitality.
This world class facility implements Lueders limestone for its lobby areas. The contrasting dimensioned stone elements are indicative of some of the refinements made since the wilder days of the old west. The arched stone passages escort guests through shopping venues, or en-route to business / social ensembles. The columns of the main concourse and lobbies, with canted dimension stone bases, exude solidarity and strength, combined with limestone's inherent beauty. Guests can visit near pass-through masonry fireplaces.
