Situated in the leafy residential area of Turtle Creek, with instant access to the city, the lovely Mansion on Turtle Creek retains the ambience of a distinguished residence. It’s elegant — but unfussy— and exquisitely epitomizes the city’s sense of style. The lauded Mansion restaurant, set in the former home of cotton and oil magnate Sheppard King, features a low-lit wood-paneled bar with live jazz three nights a week. Renovated in 2010, the larger-than-average rooms have a soft, luxurious feel with blond woods, crisp white linens emblazoned with the letter “M,” sand-colored geometric-patterned carpet and dark-peach velvet sofas. French doors open to private balconies with views of downtown or the tree-lined street below, while the lobby sports a gleaming marble floor and hand-painted wallpaper.
