The Omni Dallas Hotel is unique in the city because it’s owned by the city. Featuring an incredible amount of local art in both public spaces and well-appointed rooms, the hotel has 1001 rooms and 67 luxury suites. Connected by a sky bridge to the Dallas Convention Center, this is the property to stay at if business brings you to town. Even if you’re not coming for a trade show or convention, its downtown location is ideally situated to be close to tons of attractions. Enjoy dining at Bob’s Steak & Chop House, Texas Spice, or the Owner’s Box state-of-the-art sports bar. Mokara Spa, a rooftop terrace pool, and a large fitness center provide plenty of on-site distractions. Views of downtown are spectacular, too.
Room Rates: $146 and up
What Makes It Great: This is one hotel that’s as stunning on the outside as it is on the inside. The building is capable of becoming a living art piece thanks to a really cool lighting system that turns the entire building into a video billboard for current events in the city, or something simply beautiful for the sake of being beautiful.
Nearby Attractions: Dallas Convention Center (connected), American Airlines Center, Dallas Arts District, 3.5 miles from gay entertainment district.
