When you are planning your trip to the Big D, you have two airports to choose from, both within 30 minutes of The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas.
If you are flying on an airline besides Southwest, you’ll likely fly into Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Though the airport is huge and rather confusing to get around, driving to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel from DFW is easy as pie. There are two exits of the airport, north and south, both of which will get you to the hotel, though the south exit is easier.
Once you have exited the airport, you will hop on Highway 183 East, make sure to follow signs for Irving/Dallas. Stay on that for about 11 miles then merge onto I-35E South to make your way into the city. After three miles, take exit 429A toward Highway 75/McKinney. Almost immediately, you’ll take the Pearl Street exit. Keep to the right at the fork onto Olive Street. At the intersection of Olive and McKinney Avenue, you’ll turn right onto McKinney and The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas is on your left.
For those of you flying on Southwest or a commuter jet, you’ll be closer to the hotel — literally just a few miles away at Dallas Love Field. This is a much smaller airport, with one way in and one way out. At the intersection of Mockingbird Lane and Cedar Springs Road, which you’ll be at as you exit the airport, turn right onto W Mockingbird Lane. After half a mile, turn left onto Maple Avenue. You’ll stay on Maple for a little over three miles until you take a slight right onto Cedar Springs Road. Almost immediately, turn left onto N Pearl Street and a quick right onto McKinney Avenue; the hotel will be on your right.
