If pure glamour, beauty, and an upscale approach are the top things on your list, Rosewood Mansion could be the hotel for you. Originally a privately owned estate, it was converted in 1980 into a stunningly luxurious hotel with over a hundred rooms for guests.

Situated on the prettily named Turtle Creek, Rosewood Mansion looks something special just on the approach. You don’t have to step inside to appreciate that this is going to be a wonderful stay, but once you do, you’ll be amazed by its beauty.

Rich, modern rooms have been decorated in neutral, easy-on-the-eye, classic color schemes, but the designs aren’t boring or repetitive. The hotel has an exotic feel of easy style, with nothing to prove to its guests about how grand it is. Elegant railings wind upward, arched windows spill light into the dining room, and the pool is lined with white seating.

Enjoy a state of the art fitness center, followed by a quick dip in those gorgeous blue waters, or find a cool spot in the hotel’s shady grounds to relax and take in the morning.

You can eat any meal at the hotel, as the Mansion Restaurant opens for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, serving American cuisine. The Mansion Bar offers cocktails in its cool ambiance, and each room also has a fully stocked mini bar.

Enjoy modern luxury in the 42-inch flat screen TVs without feeling like you are in an advert for every tech gadget ever; this hotel manages to combine convenience with simplicity, making your stay comfortable and not excessive.

The surrounding area is also beautiful, and the hotel is only about four and a half miles from Dallas Love Field Airport. There is the Children’s Aquarium around a ten minute drive away, too, and the hotel offers a local transfer service to the city center, which is two miles away.

The location may not be as convenient as others, but the transfer service makes that almost irrelevant, and its situation lets you enjoy peace and tranquility, rather than the chaos of the city center.

Two: The Lumen

If you’d like a little more in the way of modernity and luxuries, the Lumen may be the hotel for you. It’s near the Southern Methodist University, and as long as you avoid football weekends, you’ll find it a peaceful and wonderful place to stay.

Clean, bright rooms done in light colors live up to the hotel’s name, and it offers simple elegance in terms of its neutral decor. You can access the fitness center and a seasonal outdoor pool, making it easy to stay active while at the hotel.

The Lumen also provides flat screen televisions and a fully stocked mini bar in every room, so you can enjoy relaxing evenings alone, or descend to the Front Room Restaurant, which serves an array of cocktails, beers, and wines, alongside American cuisine and espressos. Morning papers are available in the lobby, too.

You are a fifteen minute drive from the city center, so this should be taken into account when making your choice, but this helps the stay to be quiet and peaceful, allowing you to enter the vibrancy of Dallas’s center at your leisure, rather than being constantly immersed in it.

Choose from any of their luxury suites or double rooms, and relax throughout your stay.

Three: W Dallas – Victory

You have access to a twenty-four hour concierge service, plus a business center with fax and copy services, so you needn’t leave your work behind if you’re coming to this hotel. Make use of this to stay in touch and on top of everything.

You can also keep up with your fitness routine, using the 3,000 square foot fitness center, along with a delightful steam room in the appropriately named Bliss Spa. Pop up to the roof for a swim with a view in that incredible pool, far above Dallas.

The pool features a wet deck and a lounge service, so you can feel like you’re sunning yourself in a Las Vegas resort, with the tranquil waters lapping around you and an amazing skyline with other skyscrapers, and the city far below.

Cook Hall offers some amazing classic American dishes, and the Living Room Bar serves cocktails, beer, and wine, with a constant flow of music from the DJ to keep the atmosphere lively. You can also dine off-site, with many other restaurants a convenient distance away.

The rooms are bright and come equipped with a mini bar, a snack box, and complimentary designer toiletries for in the shower. You also get a 32-inch flat screen television.

Nearby, you have access to the American Airlines Center and the Perot Museum, and the enormous Victory Park resort has everything you could want or need for the entire stay. If you do find something lacking, you’re not far from Downtown, so it’s an easy trip to get there.


If you’re heading to Dallas, there are some wonderful hotels you can explore. Check out the Old World charm and classic ambiance of Rosewood Mansion, delve into the convenience of the Lumen, or enjoy the W’s ultra hip and modern take on overnight stays, with the gym and pool at your fingertips.
