Dallas resorts are relatively few in number, but what they lack in quantity they more than make up for in quality. The Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas, for example, is a dazzling retreat that is equipped for all kinds of getaways, and guests at the Gaylord Texan Hotel & Convention Center will hardly be at a loss for things to do. These two luxury resorts in Dallas Texas are among the most attractive in the land, and they can serve the needs of business and leisure travelers alike.
As is true of the other resorts in the area, the Four Seasons and the Gaylord Texan (pictured) aren't found in Dallas proper. Instead, they are wedged between Dallas and Fort Worth. As such, those searching for Fort Worth resorts will come up with the same options as those who are searching for resorts in Dallas. That being said, Fort Worth is home to one very interesting resort that any and all visitors will want to keep in mind. At the Gaylord Texan, a session at the onsite day spa might be in order after a round of golf. Relaxing by the pool or visiting one of the six onsite restaurants is another option. In addition to six restaurants, the resort also offers seven lounges. There are not less than 1,511 inviting guest rooms and suites to choose from. Each is equipped with a safe, cable TV, a coffee maker, free gourmet coffee, a custom-made mattress or mattresses, and a mini fridge.
The MD Resort Bed & Breakfast isn't your standard resort, though it offers a resort feel. There are only eleven guest units to choose from, and all of them boast a homey appeal. The rooms with private baths that feature jetted tubs are the most attractive, while those who want to save on rates can book one of the clean and comfortable standard rooms that share a common bath. When guests aren't relaxing in their comfortable rooms at the MD Resort Bed & Breakfast, they can ride horses, swim in the outdoor pool, soak in the poolside hot tub, or wander the expansive grounds. This B&B/resort is a working ranch that sits on 37 lovely acres just outside of Fort Worth.
As for the more standard Dallas resorts, the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas is a verifiable gem. Arguably the king of the luxury resorts in Dallas Texas, the Four Seasons can be found among rolling hills; its world-class, 18-hole golf course taking advantage of the natural terrain. In addition to a divine golf course, the Four Seasons Resort at Las Colinas also has immaculate tennis facilities. In fact, Tennis magazine rates this as one of the top 20 tennis resorts in the entire world! Other facilities that help to make this one of the best Dallas Fort Worth resorts are a collection of attractive pools, an enticing spa, a state-of-the-art fitness center, an excellent restaurant, a trio of bars, and a snack shop that is ideal for when you want to get something quick and easy to eat. Guest units at this amazing resort come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Easily among the most attractive guest units in the land, the 431 rooms and suites at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas can satisfy the most discerning of travelers with their comfort and amenities. Amenity highlights include sparkling marble bathrooms, CD players, luxury bedding, cable TV, mini bars, and plush bathrobes. As for the exact location of the Four Seasons, it can be found in Irving.
Across the airport from Irving is the charming city of Grapevine. Those who are looking for luxury resorts in Dallas Texas will find a dandy in Grapevine, and it's the Gaylord Texan Hotel & Convention Center. Dubbed as "The Official Hotel of the Dallas Cowboys," this might be the area resort of choice for Cowboys fans. This is especially true for fans who are in town for a game at Cowboys Stadium. While the Gaylord Texan doesn't have its own golf course, guests can book a special lodging package that includes rounds at the nearby Cowboys Golf Club. As the name would imply, this resort-style golf club carries a Dallas Cowboys theme.
Rounding out the choices for luxury Dallas resorts is the stunning Westin Stonebriar, which can be found in the attractive suburb of Frisco. This wonderful resort boasts a Tom Fazio-designed golf course, a spa, award-winning cuisine, and elegant event space that can be perfect for honeymoons and other special events. While these facilities will be tempting, it might be hard to leave your room or suite at the Westin Stonebriar. In addition to premium bedding, each tasteful room and suite features a large flat-screen TV, a work desk, a refrigerator, an enticing balcony, and an oversized bathroom. For travelers who are interested in pet-friendly Dallas hotels, the Westin Stonebriar allows dogs, provided that they weigh 40 pounds or less.
When family resorts in Dallas are the aim, the Four Seasons, the Gaylord Texan, and the Westin Stonebriar are all family friendly. That being said, families with young kids might prefer a stay at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine. This family resort features its own water park, and so complete is the water park, that a trip to Six Flags over Texas's Hurricane Harbor won't be necessary when you feel like beating the heat. Other facilities include an arcade and a spa where weary parents can rejuvenate. As for the rooms, they come in the form of well-equipped suites with a playfully wild theme. Some of the suites are special suites for kids that link to adult rooms. Of all the Dallas Fort Worth resorts, the Great Wolf Lodge is arguably the most family friendly of them all, and it's worth noting that similar Great Wolf Lodges can be found in a number of other U.S. cities, such as Traverse City, Michigan and Williamsburg, Virginia.
