From Deep Ellum to the Bishop Arts District, Dallas is home to gourmet bistros, Prohibition bars, live music and vintage shops. Here is Culture Trip’s pick of the best boutique hotels in this Texas metropolis.

While Dallas is known for its size, not all hotels here are sprawling, soulless complexes. The northern Texan city has a quirky, artistic side, reflected in its chic boutique hotels. From rock-star themed suites to glamorous rooftop pools, you can tap into the city’s hip art and music scene by staying at one of these stylish establishments.

Ask and you shall receive. The charming host and hostess at this antique-filled heritage home treat every guest like a beloved family member. No request goes unanswered, whether it be a house tour, vegetarian options in your lavish cooked-to-order breakfast, or just one more homemade cookie. Spend the day in the garden or take the short 20-minute stroll to downtown Dallas attractions.

Kimpton Pittman Hotel

Chain Hotel, Luxury, Boutique Hotel

The historic Pittman has been taken in hand and looks fabulous at 100. Graphic black, white and gold decor frames the common areas. Suites entice with leather-stitched headboards, velvet chairs in shades of ocean blue, and Frette linens. Choose from a selection of LPs to put on the record player, then relax in the deep soaker tub. The Deep Ellum area is full of bars, restaurants, and coffee shops, while the Dallas Museum of Art is a short walk away.

The neo-gothic, art-filled Joule in downtown Dallas features 160 stylish rooms and suites – you can also book one of the hotel’s four penthouses for an extra luxurious stay. Designed by award-winning architect Adam D Tihany, the hotel showcases works by Andy Warhol, Tony Cragg, Adam Fuss and Richard Phillips, among others. It has several bars and restaurants, such as the subterranean craft cocktail bar Midnight Rambler or Americano, a vibrant bistro influenced by Italian film. Joule is also home to a few boutiques, including a Taschen bookshop.

An interactive hub for the ultra-trendy traveler, the Canvas Hotel features an urban loft-style interior, which acts as a visual platform for local artists. Even the restaurant menu is artistically presented. Inside, you’ll find rustic suites with exposed brick walls and quirky decor. The real showstopper here is the neon glow rooftop bar and pool overlooking the city skyline. Pets are welcome.

The Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek is an elegant boutique property in Dallas’s Oak Lawn neighborhood, a short drive from downtown. While it was once a private residence, today it offers stylish rooms, outfitted in old-world European decor. Take a dip in the 25m (82ft) outdoor pool to cool off during the hot summer months. Come winter, the Mansion Bar is the place to cozy up with a glass of Merlot by the crackling fire – order the succulent Wagyu beef sliders as a bar snack.

Hotel ZaZa Dallas

Hotel ZaZa Dallas feels like a home away from home. It has a beautifully decorated interior that resembles a private residence. Choose between a spacious guest room or a magnificent themed suite (the Rock Star comes with a zebra-print armchair and electric guitar). Alternatively, opt for a chic bungalow across the street for extra privacy – each one comes with a butler’s pantry, stuffed with gourmet snacks and coffee. After 10pm, the poolside Lounge is the place to be – expect live DJs and cocktails until the early hours.

The Lumen

Just across the street from Southern Methodist University (SMU), you find The Lumen, located north of Dallas in the Park Cities neighborhoood. Rooms are fairly neutral with pillow-top king beds. Perks include a gym and complimentary bike rentals, so you can explore the neighborhood at leisure. Find solace from the summer heat in the rooftop poolside cabanas, after brunch at the Front Room Tavern. Try Tex Mex classics here, such as crispy chicken migas with scrambled eggs and queso fresco.

The Guild Victory Park

The Guild Victory Park boutique hotel is steps away from the American Airlines Center, where you can watch the Mavericks and Stars (Dallas’s NBA and NHL teams, respectively), as well as concerts and other performances. It’s also a short walk to the Katy Trail, which connects to the Uptown and Oak Lawn neighborhoods. The apartment-style rooms here come with kitchens, separate bedrooms and living room areas. You can also enjoy an outdoor pool, gym and sun terrace.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
