With artistic touches and unique amenities, a stay at any of these DFW spots is opting for an experience of its own. From the fun to the funky to the fresh, we’ve got you covered with the top boutique hotels in DFW.
1. THE BELMONT
Sporting a spot across the Trinity River from downtown Dallas, the Belmont Hotel is a posh spot with a splash of history. Nearly 73 years old, The Belmont was the first travel lodge in Dallas and flaunts a skyline view atop an Oak Cliff perch. Today, the cozy bungalows with pastel room doors offer a California desert feel. Follow along on social for their monthly calendar of events, loaded with everything from poolside DJs (with the most epic skyline view) to in-bar Mozart tributes (under a simple statement neon sign labeled ‘For Lovers Only’).
The Texican Court is Irving’s newest hotel with a Texas twist (surprising, I know.) With cozy, cool dangling firepits that sit poolside and three separate courtyards to choose from, the Texican is both a haven from the heat and a spot to sit and soak up the sunshine. The guestrooms come with a vintage fridge stocked with Texas’s best brands, paired with bright and cheery pink doors as a welcome. Turn to the tequila bar, hop on the DART to explore or jive to live music at the Toyota Music Factory (located across the street). This Irving boutique hotel is conveniently located to all your DFW demands — oh, and what really takes the cake? A complimentary breakfast with your stay, all for under $200 a night.
With an industrial twist, this Plano hotel is tied to the Tapestry Collection by Hilton. Brick walls and polished cement floors provide a posh, city feel — without all of the traffic. For under a hundred dollars, you’ll get a ton of bang for your buck in this DFW boutique hotel. The NYLO’S blend of brick and black paint bring together both the warm and cool feelings. Opt out of the in-house restaurant and take a quick drive over to the Shops at Legacy for more options and exploring. NYLO also has a location in Las Colinas, if you’re looking for options.
4. WILDWOOD INN
Think of the Wildwood like your very own quaint Texas mansion. It has all of the things you’re looking for in a romantic, European countryside escape — without the difficulty of getting there. With french doors opening out to its vast gardens, this boutique hotel in Denton offers incredible photos ops and venue spaces. The pool is surrounded by aged, billowing trees and guests rave about the gorgeous grounds. This is the perfect place to stay for those on the hunt for a quiet, quaint getaway.
5. THE ASHTON
If you’re looking for cowtown couture, The Ashton is the hotel for you. Red bricks lay the entryway, giving the feel of a historic step back. After all, it was built in 1915 (but has all the luxury of a modern stay). With a more traditional twist, the Ashton has an afternoon tea party from Thursday through Sunday with seasonal menu offerings and a spot of tea. Right in the epicenter of Sundance Square and Fort Worth’s best, this historic boutique hotel is perfect for a more upscale escape.
A newer addition to the Dallas scene, Lorenzo Hotel is ever-so-slightly off the beaten path but still under a mile from all of the downtown attractions. This DFW boutique hotel takes their artsy twist to a whole new level. From cowhide and pink leather combo dining chairs to a pop of color poolside with a mural of Albert Einstein, the photo-op potential is endless. Perhaps the most unusual art piece on property is a Blue Man Group take over at the pool. Several blue mannequins dangle from the beams above the pool for a interesting touch — just to show how unique the Lorenzo Hotel really is.
7. HOTEL INDIGO
This Frisco IHG boutique hotel flaunts a price tag under a hundred dollars per night without skimping out on all of the bells and whistles. Hotel Indigo is situated right on Avenue of the Stars, which is prime real estate for Frisco’s top attractions. It’s a hop, skip and a jump from the Star in Frisco (Dallas Cowboys Headquarters) and a stone’s throw from Dr. Pepper Ballpark, where you can float in a lazy river while watching the Frisco Roughriders play ball. Hit the Parlour Social Lounge for a cocktail with a chic vibe before wandering around the vibrant area. The guest rooms are clean and crisp, each with artistic splashes around the space.
