ATLAS, Lake Walk Town Center Announce Opening of The Stella Hotel

(BRYAN/COLLEGE STATION, Texas) – ATLAS – the premier corporate campus in the Brazos Valley – and Lake Walk, the new town center featuring lifestyle and outdoor pursuits, announce the opening of The Stella Hotel, the first independent, upscale boutique hotel in Bryan/College Station.

Managed by Trust Hospitality, the 176-key property brings together a unique blend of music, art, design and service, providing guests with an authentic Texas experience that is both stimulating and comfortable. Every detail of The Stella is thoughtfully crafted with clean, modern lines. The property’s welcoming, airy spaces, designed by the Dallas-based architectural firm FAB Studio, and interior designer Design DMU, also based in Dallas, feature unequivocal panoramic views of the stunning Texas landscape.

Rooms and suites inside The Stella offer a sophisticated yet relaxed feel, with several suites endowed with wraparound balconies allowing for expansive views of Lake ATLAS, the Nicklaus-designed Traditions Club golf course and Texas A&M University’s heralded Kyle Field. Each room includes a mini bar, luxurious Frette linens and LATHER bathroom amenities.

“Our team has worked tirelessly to bring this remarkable project to fruition,” says Peggy Trott, general manager of The Stella Hotel. “We look forward to providing Bryan/College Station with a hotel that embodies its authentic sense of place and culture.”

The Stella’s dining options embody the delectable fare found throughout the Lone Star State. Indulge in central Texas’ finest ingredients at Campfire, The Stella’s on-site restaurant. The menu has a heavy focus on locally raised beef from 44 Farms, slow smoked proteins and sustainable seafood. Campfire features an open kitchen with a 10-person chef’s table designated for monthly wine dinners. The restaurant spills out onto an expansive patio with fire pits and lakeside views creating a warm and inviting atmosphere perfectly evoking memories of sitting around a campfire with friends and family. Guests can also bask in Campfire’s selection of craft cocktails, local brews and their fine-tuned wine list.

Complementing Campfire is Hershel’s, a speakeasy-style bar authentically matched with Texas hospitality. Offering indoor and outdoor seating, it features the largest bourbon selection in Brazos County, an exclusive cigar program, elegant craft cocktails and notable beers and wine by the glass. The seasonally driven restaurant is helmed by Executive Chef Zachary Ladwig, who most recently served as the chef de cuisine at the Five-Star, Five-Diamond resort The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Located adjacent to The Stella, P.O.V. is a sleek café serving up specialty coffee from San Antonio’s Merit Roasting Co., with several small batched blends, along with light fare, specialty brews and wine, all in a stylish, modern setting. For guests looking to catch some rays while sipping on refreshing libations, The Watershed serves as The Stella’s full-service poolside bar, which overlooks an expansive outdoor pool and features private cabanas and inviting lounge chairs.

The Stella offers over 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space including a grand ballroom and outdoor lawn known as The Back Yard, which are multi-use and functional for business meetings, corporate retreats, weddings and social gatherings.

Guests can also explore the outdoors with activities including paddle boarding on the adjacent five-acre lake, lakeside concerts, guest picnics, outdoor yoga, lake walks, hiking and biking trails and more.
