The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is the No. 1 visitor and leisure destination in Texas, so it should come as no surprise that the city is home to a dizzying number of hotels. But the best Dallas hotels offer more than just a place to rest your head for the night. These are places that provide unparalleled service and deliver luxurious experiences in a Texas-sized way. If you want to stay somewhere within walking distance of the main sights, then Downtown and Uptown are the places to be.
Located in the Central Business District is the Joule, an uber- chic, boutique hotel set in a revitalized 1920s neo-Gothic landmark building. The interior is stunning, plus there's a top-notch restaurant and sexy subterranean cocktail den. But it's the rooftop infinity pool that truly takes the cake.
Also located downtown is the Adolphus, a 100-plus-year-old icon that was modeled after a Beaux Arts German castle. Thanks to a multi-million dollar makeover, which included updates throughout the hotel as well as a new rooftop pool, the hotel is even more glamorous than before.
Over in Uptown is where you'll find the Ritz Carlton. With a luxe spa, an outdoor pool area with fire pits and an eatery by celeb chef Dean Fearing, it's easy to see why the hotel is one of the most admired brand names in the world.
And who said you have to forgo luxury when you're traveling with the family in tow? Located minutes from downtown in the Dallas Design District, the Hilton Anatole not only offers luxurious rooms and a phenomenal rooftop steakhouse, but it's also the only hotel in the city to boast a 4 acre resort-style pool complex, complete with 180-foot waterslides and a lazy river.
Whether you're in town for business or planning a great escape, these ten Dallas hotels should definitely be at the top of your list.
