Eclectic Luxury: Dallas Boutique Hotels

Dallas is where tastes, trends, styles and attitudes collide in spectacular fashion in a posh collection of dazzling boutique hotels

Some very good things have been known to arrive in smaller packages. And when it comes to Dallas’s top boutique hotels – and there are many – they rival any major metropolitan area and are considered the envy of large markets throughout the United States. With uber popular spas and treatments, elegant, award-winning restaurants, and awesome recreational amenities, Dallas is chock full of marvelous options. Whether it’s near the active nightlife of Uptown, entertainment near Downtown, Victory Park, and the Harwood District, the contemporary landscape is dotted with an exciting variety of memorable spaces where guests can work, play and unwind in style. Here are six examples of why Dallas is considered an American mecca when it comes to cool boutique hotels. 

Lumen Hotel: Located directly across from stately Southern Methodist University, what was once a charismatic little retro campus motel has morphed into a tony, tree-lined retreat in a classic Park Cities neighborhood. With a dashing pool scene (cocktails anyone?), lovely rooftop vistas, and the stylish four-star Front Room restaurant, the air is forever fresh and inviting at the delightful hotel on the Hilltop.

The Highland: As a part of Hilton’s exclusive Curio Collection, the contemporary hotel on historic Mockingbird Lane in east Dallas is a singular experience. Standing majestically in its central location on the edge of the popular recreational pathway known as the Katy Trail and directly across the Central Expressway from SMU, the trendy facility is surrounded by shopping and excellent restaurants and has catered to discriminating tastes for years.

Hotel ZaZa: Comfortably cushioned in the energized Uptown community just off McKinney Avenue, the distinctive Dallas boutique hotel is considered a fashionable cut above. With a variety of stylish guest rooms and inventive concept suites, plus one of the region’s most popular spas, perfect for pampering, and the decorated Dragonfly restaurant, ZaZa is upscale, alert, and always just a step away from Uptown’s sizzling nightlife. 

Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek: At one time it was the celebrated estate of a prestigious cotton baron, and the pride of a famous Texas family.  Today the extravagant oasis is surrounded by elegant live oaks in one of Dallas’s most storied neighborhoods. It boasts a top-notch industry reputation for luxury as well as an uncompromising commitment to quality. The Mansion Restaurant is consistently rated among the nation’s elite.

Virgin Hotels Dallas: Much of what internationally recognized pop culture icon Sir Richard Branson touches turns to gold. His latest U.S. property was brilliantly conceived, planned, and constructed to be an integral part of the thriving Dallas Design District. With its unforgettably breathtaking views of the Southwest’s most sparkling skyline, the creative contemporary polish in the hotel stands out making a distinctively bold statement. 

The Beeman Hotel: Conveniently located on the edge of the Park Cities near the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, and SMU, the urban chic hotel is impressive yet compact, built for no-nonsense relaxation in stylish surroundings. Swank and sophisticated in tone The Beeman is youthful and daring, cutting edge details drenched in artistic features always keeping things upbeat and interesting.
