10Best hotels for luxury sleepovers in the Dallas area

Whether you’re planning a first-class trip to Dallas or you want to spoil yourself with an over-the-top staycation, the city is rife with high-end accommodations. We’re talking about the cream of the crop hotels featuring everything from lavish amenities and luxe furnishings to top-notch customer service that goes the extra mile to ensure a memorable stay. 

For example, at The Joule in the heart of downtown Dallas, guests will feel more like they’re staying in an art gallery than a hotel, where works by artists such as Roger Hiorns and Andy Warhol pop up in various spots throughout the property. Even more spectacular is the unique rooftop swimming pool that cantilevers eight feet beyond the building's edge. Art also plays a central role at the recently opened HALL Arts Hotel, which is only fitting considering it's located smack dab in the largest contiguous arts district in the country.

And of course, nothing says luxury more than the 2020 Forbes Travel Guide Star Award-winning Ritz Carlton Dallas. Here, extra perks include things like complimentary guacamole and mini margarita tastings in the evenings as well as a chauffeured luxury car service to nearby locations.

So, for when only the best will do, these ten Dallas area hotels are sure to tick all the right boxes.
