Search the best hotels in Dallas
The Big ‘D’, America’s ninth-largest city, Dallas, is a place we all feel we know. This is partly
due to the eponymous TV series, partly to its place in American history as the site of JF Kennedy’s assassination, and partly because it embraces much of how we popularly see America: skyscrapers, shopping and cowboys. You'll also find great food and great football - home to the Cowboys team and their cheerleaders. Our guide to the best places to stay In Dallas lets you plan your stay so, whatever you fancy doing, you will find a hotel that suits.
The city combines a glittering, glassy, skyscraper architecture - best seen from the Reunion Tower’s GeO-Deck observation platform in the Central Business District - with less showy places such as the ultra-hip Deep Ellum neighbourhood with its rootsy music, craft beers and Latin-American food scene. Dining out in Dallas is one of the city’s big draws whether you want barbecued spare ribs, spicy Mexican, pizzas, steaks, old-fashioned burgers, smart French or to dine in an upscale oyster bar.
Want to let your hair down? Head to River Ranch at Texas Horse Park and go on a horse trail ride led by real Texan cowboys. And when it comes to shopping, Dallas doesn't disappoint - with more malls per capita than anywhere else in the US.
What Not To Miss
- One of the city’s most evocative museums is the Sixth Floor Museum, a memorial to President John F Kennedy's assassination.
- The Dallas Museum of Art has works by Edward Hopper, Rodin and Winston Churchill. Visit on Thursday night and you’ll find live jazz in the atrium.
