Arlington, Texas, welcomes more than 10 million tourists every year – some simply come to town for the weekend to watch the Dallas Cowboys or the Texas Rangers at their home stadiums. Others stay for longer, making the most of everything the entertainment capital of North Texas has to offer. There’s a hotel for every type of stay in the city. Here are some of the best hotels in Arlington, Texas – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Arlington DFW South, for central convenience

This Arlington hotel is less than a 10-minute drive from both Six Flags Theme Park and the AT&T Stadium – home of the Dallas Cowboys. Rooms are smart spaces with Arlington-themed artworks on the walls – some come with balconies and others have patios that give you direct access to the hotel’s pool. There’s a bar-restaurant on-site, too: the Brass Spur serves classic American dishes like hamburgers and Texan steaks in big portions.

2. Hilton Arlington, for a reliable classic

Teal-blue soft furnishings and some seriously funky lamps make this Hilton a more characterful offering than most; a fitness center and illuminated outdoor pool seal the deal. Sports fans, rejoice: here, you’re just 2mi (3.2km) from Texas Rangers games at Globe Life Field and Dallas Cowboys games at AT&T Stadium. You’re also just 15 minutes’ drive from DFW Airport, should you need to catch a red-eye.

3. Live by Loews, Arlington, TX, for football fanatics

The location alone makes Live by Loews a contender for the best hotel in Arlington title. It’s next door to the Choctaw Stadium and across the road from the AT&T Stadium, and you can see the arenas from the floor-to-ceiling windows of many of the rooms. The hotel is also packed with facilities – highlights include the stadium-view cocktail bar, the steakhouse and the infinity pool with its in-water loungers and poolside cabanas that come with Netflix and an Xbox.

4. Sheraton Arlington Hotel, for theme park thrill-seekers

You can walk to both the baseball and football stadium when you stay at this hotel in Arlington. Meanwhile, Six Flags Theme Park is a five-minute drive away and you can see the roller coasters from some of the rooms. For the times you’re not exploring the city’s sights, the hotel has a roomy outdoor pool and a bar and grille that serves classic cocktails like cosmos, craft beers and American food.

5. Crowne Plaza Suites Arlington – Ballpark – Stadium, an IHG Hotel, for transport ease

A trolley train stops right outside this Arlington hotel – it’ll take you to sights like Six Flags, Hurricane Harbor waterpark and the city’s sporting stadiums for free. The rooms here wrap around a light-flooded six-story atrium that’s dotted with relaxation spaces. If you want a bit more of your own relaxation space, meanwhile, you can opt for one of the WordLife Suites – which come with a roomy living area and a desk space.

6. Lux Hotel & Spa, Trademark Collection by Wyndham, for Cowboy supporters

The Lux Hotel is a great choice if you’re heading to a Cowboys game – the gift shop sells Cowboy supporter flags and the hotel offers a shuttle service to every game. When you’re not watching the on-field action, you can relax around the hotel’s pool or in one of the comfortable seating areas in the lobby. Or, if you feel like a treat, book one of the Deluxe Suites, so you can unwind in your bedside bath that comes with jacuzzi-style jets.

7. Residence Inn by Marriott Dallas Arlington South, for a buffet breakfast

Every room at this hotel in Arlington comes with a fully equipped kitchen and a separate living area. You won’t need to use the kitchen to make breakfast, though, as the hotel lays that out for you. The buffet-style spread is typically American – think bagels, oatmeal, eggs and biscuits with gravy. This property is centrally located – it’s less than 10 minutes’ drive from both the city’s main theme parks and stadiums.

8. Courtyard by Marriott Dallas Arlington/Entertainment District, for tasty food offerings
