10 Top Family-Friendly Hotels in the Dallas Area

Planning to take the brood on a family getaway or staycation? Then you’ve come to the right place. From amusement parks and kid-friendly museums to urban green spaces and vibrant entertainment districts, there’s no shortage of things to do and see in the Dallas area. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of family-friendly places to stay either.

Want to be within walking distance to many of Dallas’ top attractions? Then downtown is the best place to stay. For a hotel that not only features space to spread out, but also a slew of cool amenities (think indoor golf simulators and indoor basketball courts) head to Homewood Suites. There’s also the Omni, a dazzling hotel that offers a rooftop infinity pool and incredible cityscape views.

If visiting an amusement park or taking in a major league game is on your bucket list, then you may want to make the Hyatt Place in Arlington your base. The hotel is within a stone’s throw of Six Flags, Hurricane Harbor and the AT&T Stadium. 

And if your idea of a family vacation is staying where the accommodation itself is the destination, then you’ve got options like the Four Seasons Resort at Las Colinas and the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine.

Whether you are traveling with babies, toddlers, tweens or teens, these ten hotels offer everything you need to ensure your family vacation goes off without a hitch.
