Luxury hotels Dallas offer discerning travelers amenity-filled guest units that can serve as ideal homes away from home. They also offer upscale facilities that have little trouble when it comes to keeping guests happy. In addition to a handful of 5 star Dallas hotels, there is also a number of enticing 4 star lodging establishments to choose from. The Fairmont Hotel is just one 4 star Dallas hotel that is worth keeping in mind, especially for those who are interested in being in the vibrant Downtown Arts District. While the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek is possibly the best 5 star option.
The Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek may possibly be the best luxury hotel in the Dallas area. Perched atop a hill in the chic Uptown District, the Rosewood Mansion is exactly what it sounds like—a mansion. A cotton magnate once lived in the sprawling and beautiful abode during the 1920s and 30s, and this magnate went to great lengths to create a home that would be fit for a king. Marble floors are complemented by stunning stained-glass windows, and the size of the place is impressive. The décor is both elegant and chic in the 141 rooms and suites, and guests will enjoy cozy furnishings, glorious oversized bathrooms, plasma TVs, deluxe robes, and premium linens. The largest and most exclusive suites offer full, luxurious kitchens, making them akin to upscale vacation rentals. The list of in-room amenities is a long one, as is the list of services that the Rosewood Mansion offers, and outside of the guest units, the facilities include a heated outdoor pool, a business center, and a fitness center.
While the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek (pictured) is attractive on many a level, those who are interested in downtown luxury lodging in Dallas might prefer the Adolphus Hotel. This landmark lodging establishment is a Beaux Arts beauty that is often referred to as "the Dame of the Dallas Hotels." Built in 1912, it offers Old World opulence, its Gilded Age appeal the result of founder Adolphus Busch's fortune. While it doesn't make the list of 5 star Dallas hotels, the Magnolia Hotel is another historic Downtown Dallas hotel worth noting. The Magnolia occupies what is widely considered to be the most famous building in Downtown Dallas, and it's hard to miss this building, as it is capped with a large, red sculpture of Pegasus. While Downtown Dallas is home to luxurious lodging gems like these, the bulk of the luxury hotels Dallas are found due north in Uptown. Coincidentally, this upscale district is also home to some of the city's most exclusive shops and restaurants.
One of the hottest developments in Dallas's Uptown District is Victory Park, and it's where you will find the luxurious W Hotel. The 252 guest units at the ultra-chic W Hotel are quite swank, especially when it comes to the furnishings, and unlike many luxury hotels across the globe, guests will enjoy free Internet access. The W Dallas offers an excellent New York City-style restaurant and one of the most renowned bars in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The bar even has its own helipad for those who wish to arrive in style, and it's not uncommon to see limos pulling up out front on the ground. Limos often pull up to the other luxury hotels Dallas that can be found in trendy Uptown. These hotels include the Zaza Hotel, the Ritz Carlton Dallas, and the Hotel St. Germain. The Zaza Hotel is one of the best boutique hotels in the land, and the Ritz-Carlton is renowned for its divine spa.
The Hotel St. Germain is arguably the B&B of choice for travelers who are searching for luxury lodging in Dallas. Part B&B, part boutique hotel, the Hotel St. Germain is a break from the other luxury hotels in Dallas, in that it only offers seven guest units. This makes for a very intimate lodging experience, and the Old World luxury will have guests feeling like verifiable kings and queens. The Guesthouse on Allen Street is another Dallas B&B worth looking into.
Any and all of these hotels will have little trouble satisfying the needs of discerning travelers who have 5 star Dallas hotels in mind. The Dallas-Fort Worth area is big, however, and Dallas proper isn't the only place to look for luxurious North Texas lodging. When it comes to the Fort Worth hotels, the Ashton Hotel is especially worth mentioning. The Ashton Hotel enjoys an excellent location on Fort Worth's vibrant Sundance Square. Over in Addison, the Fairmont Hotel offers a considerable amount of luxury, not to mention a good location near excellent restaurants and shops.
Rounding out the choices for luxury lodging in Dallas are the area resorts and the more upscale area vacation rentals. The Dallas resorts include the immaculate Four Seasons at Las Colinas. The other area resorts are just as attractive in their own ways, so they also deserve a look when planning your upscale Dallas vacation. Area vacation rentals only add to the choices for luxury lodging in Dallas with their top tier homes and condos.
