established in 1956
Jackson 5, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Bob Hope, Styx, Cher, Burl Ives, Perry Como, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Durante, Luci & Desi Arnaz, Liberace, Gene Autry and more graced the original Statler stage upon opening. The Statler was then known for its celebrity appearances and recognized as the first modern hotel in the Southwest. The iconic space boasting of retro-forward, mid-twentieth century design and added amenities has received a notable amount of press and attention since its reopening. The Statler could be described as an entertainment destination with a boutique hotel attached. To break in its monumental return, Tony Bennett performed on March 3, 2018 at the Grand Reopening of The Statler Ballroom.
