Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek
Once a residential mansion, the Rosewood is famed for its elegance and its proximity to the critically acclaimed Mansion Restaurant. The beautifully appointed 143 rooms and suites—most of which feature French doors that open up to small balconies—provide all the creature comforts, including special children’s linens and mini robes for younger guests.
Amenities: Massage treatments, fitness center with sauna and steam room, children’s services upon request, meeting and event space, on-site restaurants and bar, private dining, 42” plasma TVs, and Natura Bisse products.
The Adolphus has been one of the best luxury hotels in Dallas for more than a century. Recent renovations have retained much of the Beaux-Arts-style building’s rich historical heritage. You can easily imagine famous former guests unwinding in the marble-floored French Room Salon. The 300+ rooms are notably spacious, with tall ceilings and king-size beds.
Amenities: Spa, fitness center, pool, rainfall showers, and on-site restaurants and bars. (Pet-friendly.)
For an indulgent treat with a Texas twist, head to Ritz-Carlton’s lobby each evening for made-to-order guacamole tastings and mini margaritas. The service is courtesy of acclaimed chef Dean Fearing, whose Southwestern-styled Fearing’s Restaurant is based here. In true Ritz-Carlton style, there’s also a refined afternoon tea option. But it’s not just the food that makes the Ritz-Carlton one of the best luxury hotels in Dallas. The rooms and suites are tastefully decorated in soft, creamy tones, with fine linens and luxe marble baths to boot. Large windows offer sweeping city views; but if you really want to escape the urban sprawl, head to the spa for a revitalizing margarita salt scrub.
Amenities: Spa, outdoor pool, fitness center, on-site restaurant, marble baths, and Asprey bath products.
W Dallas Victory
The trendy W is near the American Airlines Arena, so it’s fitting that the rooms have a sexy rock star aesthetic. You might even see a real-life rocker at this celebrity-frequented hotel, where the Living Room Bar hosts a famously fashionable party scene. But you needn’t carry a tune to get the superstar treatment. The W’s “Whatever/Whenever” concierge service is the hotel equivalent of a tour rider, letting each guest indulge their whims at the push of a button at this hotel that more than earns its place among the best hotels in Dallas.
Amenities: Bliss products and spa, on-site restaurant and bar, 42-inch LG TVs, rainforest showers, iPod docking stations, business center, infinity pool, and fitness center.
Hotel ZaZa’s interior is as exuberant as its name. Regarded as one of the best hotels in Dallas, this Uptown hotspot is known for its striking blend of Mediterranean design influences with bold textiles, prints, and artwork. The ornate suites offer peak creativity, with themes ranging from the Asian-inspired “Crouching Tiger” to the Austin Powers-esque “Shag-a-delic.” The in-house Dragonfly restaurant is always buzzing, but guests who crave a stay that’s more serene than scene can book one of 12 art-filled Bungalow Suites located in a 1930s building adjacent to the main property.
Amenities: Simmons pillow-top mattresses, on-site restaurant, pool with after-hours lounge and DJ, fitness center, and spa. (Pet-friendly.)
An undeniable jewel in the crown of Dallas’ hotel scene, The Joule has transformed a ‘20s neo-Gothic building into design-forward digs. The stunning lobby doubles as an art gallery, with restored mosaics and rotating art at every turn. The 160 colorful rooms at this Dallas luxury hotel have a fun, modern energy, and the mosaic-lined rooftop pool is a remarkable sight. On-site retail space and multiple dining and nightlife options make a strong case for never stepping foot off this impossibly chic property.
Amenities: Heated rooftop pool, art gallery, clothing boutiques, tea salon and bookstore, on-site restaurants and bars, spa, fitness center, rainfall showers, TASCHEN books, and 47” flat-screen HDTV and Apple TV.
Hotel Crescent Court
This elite Uptown landmark building prides itself on its sophisticated Southern flair, though the exquisite 195 rooms and 31 suites bear marks of a grand European influence. Part of a behemoth office and retail complex, this luxury hotel in Dallas attends to every possible whim, from exceptional spa treatments to swanky dining experiences at Nobu. People-watch by the pool, soak up the grandeur of the lobby, and meet friends for cocktails at Beau Nash.
Amenities: Pool, spa, fitness center, on-site restaurant and bars, marble baths, and Molton Brown products.
Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas
The full red-carpet resort experience awaits at the Four Seasons, located just outside Dallas in Irving’s tony Las Colinas area. Golfers will know its name well; for decades, the sprawling property hosted the Byron Nelson PGA tournament. Many of the spacious 431 rooms and suites have floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies overlooking the greens. The best way to recover from 18 holes or a tennis match is a blissful massage at the spa or a dip in one of three pools.
Amenities: Three pools, spa, fitness center with classes, golf, tennis, children’s activities, business services, on-site dining and shopping, and L’Occitane products.
Planning a spa vacation? Unwind at the Anatole, one of the best luxury hotels in Dallas for pampering. The award-winning VSpa and 80,000-square-foot Verandah health club are renowned for their first-rate wellness and relaxation options; while the Jadewater pool complex includes a swim-up bar, water slides, and private cabanas. For the ultimate splurge, book a grand presidential suite, one of which is named for iconic Dallas beauty guru Mary Kay Ash. (Yes, it’s pink.)
Amenities: Spa, year-round pool, fitness center, and on-site restaurants and bars.
Omni Dallas Hotel
Make the most of the metropolis at the 1,001-room Omni, an urban oasis offering skyline views, art-filled accommodations, and a full-service spa. Many of the best restaurants in Dallas are a short walk away, but you can also stay close with cocktails at the fourth-floor Uptown Terrace. The poolside lounge is the perfect place to take in the bright lights of this beautiful city.
Amenities: Heated infinity pool, on-site dining, 42” HDTVs, fitness center, and spa.
