Crowne Plaza Hotel Dallas Downtown

Just off Interstate 35E and only minutes from Love Field Airport with free shuttle service, this hotel provides completely non-smoking rooms, an on-site restaurant and easy access to area attractions. This hotel is in an excellent location if you are visiting Dallas for a few days as it is within walking distance to many downtown bars and restaurants including the excellent Sonny Bryans Steakhouse and a Starbuck across the street.

Staff is friendly and helpful and the rooftop pool is a nice way to unwind after the previous nights partying! It’s about mid-range price-wise but for the money, you do get a great location, and parking is only $12 which is pretty reasonable for the center of downtown.

Grand Hyatt DFW

This is an airport hotel close to Dallas’s main airport but it more than exceeds your expectations for an airport hotel! It’s luxurious and has the air of being much more expensive than it actually is.

It is obviously easy to find close to the airport, and surprisingly there is no plane noise at all! The rooms are boutique style and very well furnished with huge flat-screen TVs – whether you are preparing for a long flight or relaxing having just got off one they are perfect for chilling out.

The health club is lovely and so is the fitness suite if you want to work off some steam. Upgrades are available if you ask nicely at the front desk and if you can get a suite it is worth the extra money for more amenities. It is a little way from the city (uptown is around a $45 taxi ride) so it’s definitely worth hiring a car – the concierge and reception staff are very helpful.

Hotel ZaZa Dallas

This hotel is really pretty – it’s the ideal place for a bachelorette party or a great place to relax as a couple. The outside pool with fairy lights is so pretty – be warned though this does close over the winter.

The hotel bar is lively and fun and the staff is friendly and welcoming. The only downside is the parking as it does cost $24 a day, which mounts up if you are staying for a few nights! The hotel overall doesn’t break the bank however and is good value for money. Overall it has a boutique feel and the rooms reflect that – the Dragonfly room is especially nice!

The breakfast is amazing and sets you up for the day to go and explore the city. You can walk to bars and restaurants which is a big plus point so although you may have to pay for parking you can save money on taxi fares.

Ritz-Carlton Dallas

When you are booking at any Ritz Carlton, you know you can expect a brilliant standard and this hotel is no exception to the rule. If you are only staying for a few days it’s a great place to stay – the price does reflect the luxury, however. Located off of Highway 35E, this 5-star hotel is near Cowboys Stadium and Dallas World Aquarium. It offers a free local shuttle within 3 miles and has an outdoor pool, gym, and spa.

The Ritz-Carlton, DallasThe rooftop spa facilities are fantastic with a whirlpool spa and full fitness suite and the nail technician does a great job of perking up tired hands! The rooms are large so even if you have a basic room you know you are going to get a good size space. If you really want to splash out, stay on the Concierge Level where the amenities are on tap with upgrades and free food whenever you like.

This does feel like a younger person hotel and the bar downstairs can be busy and vibrant – a great atmosphere but not one for a quiet drink!

Staybridge Suites Dallas

This hotel is another excellent choice if you are traveling on a budget, or you are looking for a place to stay if you are visiting Dallas for a couple of weeks – you can also save 20% when you book early enough.

The hotel is quiet, really clean and the staff is helpful and pleasant. The breakfasts are free and offer a good variety of choice especially some great low carb options. Suites have a full kitchen so you can stock up and chill out if you want a cheaper night rather than having to pay to eat out.

They do have a nice pool area that has a Jacuzzi which is a great way to chill out if you are on a business trip, and there is also a fitness center so it does have the amenities of a more expensive hotel.

Getting around Dallas

Getting to Dallas could not be easier – the International airport is the 3rd busiest airport in the world! The airport is around 25 miles from downtown Dallas so even if you don’t hire a car (which is recommended) it’s not too expensive in a taxi. The smaller Dallas Love Field airport is nearer to the city and offers more short-haul services. Driving to Dallas is simple via Interstate 35 and Interstate 20 and if you don’t have a car renting is by far your best option of exploring the area and car rental is easily available from all the major providers.

The public transport system in Dallas is excellent. Known as the DART (Dallas Rapid Area Transit) this is a rail and bus system that crosses the city and is reliable and fast. The trains run from 6.30 am to 6 pm and there are around 930 daily departures. Tickets are $1.75 for a one-way ticket or $4 of you want a 1-day pass, which is a good option if you are looking to hop on or off to explore the sights. The nostalgic streetcars are a cool way to travel from Uptown to downtown, and they operate 7 days a week every 15 minutes. Amtrak and Greyhound also provide bus routes to Dallas and are the cheapest way to travel – buses go from the Union Station. Finally, the Trinity Railway Express is the main commuter service in Dallas but tickets are more expensive at $2.50 each way.
