The Ramada Hotel in Dallas, TX where Tina stayed after leaving Ike Turner thirty one years ago back in July 1976 closed down a few years ago. After being totally rebuild, it reopened recently as a hip Art centric boutique Hotel under the name: ‘Lorenzo’. Located on the vibrant Cedars area of downtown Dallas, ‘over 600 original works of art ignite your imagination and suspend your disbelief. Andy Warhol meets Alice in Wonderland amid breathtaking Dallas skyline views. Draw on the wisdom and creativity of historical luminaries including Copernicus, Shakespeare, Kandinsky, Seneca, Einstein and many others.’
But there is another legendary name to add to that list and a new ‘photo spot‘ for us fans! The new owners didn’t forget our Queen and the former hotel history: In order to celebrate Tina’s legacy, visitors will have the pleasure to see the cover of Tina’s comeback album Private Dancer displayed in the hotel lobby! A great gesture and a nice way to remember that you should always focus on your dreams and make it happen one way or another!
A last reminder if you plan to sleep there: you might need more than thirty six cents and a Mobil card to get the presidential suite! Unless your name is Tina Turner!
