NYLO Hotels LLC is an American boutique hotel chain. The company was founded in 2004 and is headquartered just outside Dallas in Carrollton, Texas. NYLO Hotels includes five urban boutique hotel locations throughout the United States. 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.
NYLO Hotels was founded in 2004 by a team of hotel executives led by Michael Mueller. Co-founder Michael Mueller has also served as CEO since 2011. Previously, Mueller was an executive with Starwood Capital Group and Starwood Hotels & Resorts, one of the largest hotel groups in the world. 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.
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. At the end of 2007, NYLO opened its pioneering hotel in Plano, Texas, later followed by two more hotels in the Dallas/Ft. Worth district. 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.
The NYLO Hotel brand features urban styled guestrooms combining old buildings with modern design. 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. The company has aimed its attention to providing designer style to mid-scale priced hotels that are business-travel-friendly.
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. Other NYLO locations utilize eco-friendly initiatives such as wind power, recycled building materials, and energy-efficient light bulbs.
