Dallas Hotels Guide
Thanks to its booming corporate and convention business, metropolitan Dallas has almost more hotels than New York City. You'll find many high-rise luxury options, including Texas's only Mobil Five-Star hotel: The Mansion on Turtle Creek (2821 Turtle Creek Blvd), an Italian Renaissance-style mansion.
When Hollywood visits Dallas, one preferred accommodation is the chic Mobil Three-Star Hotel ZaZa (2332 Leonard St) in the swank Uptown District, also home to the romantic favorite, Mobil Three-Star Hotel St. Germain (2516 Maple Ave).
Beyond Dallas but within the metro area, accommodation options include the historic Mobil Two-Star Stockyards Hotel (109 E. Exchange Ave) in Fort Worth, swaggering with an Old West atmosphere. A Texas theme is central at Grapevine's Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center (1501 Gaylord Trail; Grapevine), from its nine-story oil derrick to mission square.
Remember to take into account room tax in your accommodations budget; in Dallas, the hotel tax is 15 percent.
Food in Dallas is not just all about barbecue. Visitors can experience everything from Asian fusion to Southwestern cuisine. Learn more in the restaurants guide on the next page.
