With the plethora of fabulous mansions and stellar high rises, it’s not surprising that Dallas flaunts a handful of top-notch hotels. Whether you are looking for the trendy décor of the W or the classic luxury of The Ritz-Carlton, the Big D has a fabulous guest room for you. We have a few favorites that are just irresistible when it comes to spending a weekend in Dallas.
Check in to Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek if you're looking for a refined residential locale. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel (and its delicious restaurant) is tucked away in the lush Turtle Creek neighborhood, with instant access to the city. It’s elegant — but unfussy — and exquisitely epitomizes the city’s sense of style. Down the street in Uptown, you'll find The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. The elegant Regency-style Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel boasts a marble-floored and chandeliered lobby, with an impressive display of fresh flowers that changes every Thursday. Don't miss dinner at Fearing's, the hotel's signature Four-Star restaurant in the lobby with Forbes Travel Guide Tastemaker Dean Fearing at the helm. Also in Uptown, sits the elegant Hôtel St. Germain. The boutique hotel is great for a romantic getaway — or staycation — and you simply can't pass up dinner at its eponymous restaurant.
For those of you looking for the party scene, head down to Victory Park and check in to W Dallas – Victory. It sits right across from American Airlines Center, where the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and the NHL's Dallas Stars play. You'll have plenty of entertainment whether or not you're catching a game or a concert across the street: the new restaurant, Cook Hall and the on-site Bliss Spa should keep you occupied.
And why not take advantage of the great weather in Dallas (with the exception of the summer, of course)? Book a stay at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas, which is about 15 minutes from downtown. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star resort features two championship golf courses, one of which hosts the PGA's HP Byron Nelson Championship each May.
