Many locations claim to have the best spring weather for traveling, but when it comes to Texas, we truly mean it. It’s no wonder that Texas is one of the best Spring Break destinations in the country. But if you want to avoid the crowds and do something a little more unique, stop by Dallas for the great weather and truly unique hotels.
Here are a few of my top picks for landmark Dallas hotels:
We will start our tour with a few historic properties. First is the Hotel Lawrence, a European-style boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Dallas. The history of the Hotel Lawrence dates back to 1925. The lobby takes you back to the glory days of Dallas. Wood-panel walls give you the warmth of coming home. The rooms are small and efficient, like the rooms at a New York hotel — without the NYC price tag. Every part of the hotel has been reinvented to bring you the finest guest comfort, convenience, personalized service and amenities. Best of all, it is wrapped in a luxurious, European-inspired, interior-designed package. You can get a great deal at the Hotel Lawrence most any time, but it currently is running Special Savings of up to 25% off your stay.
If you are looking for more elegance, then The Adolphus should be on your rounds. Built in 1912, by Adolphus Busch (of Budweiser beer fame), the hotel’s rooms are a mix of old and new, with English country decor and sleek, marble baths, as well as modern amenities including high-speed Internet. Critics have called this Texas landmark "the most beautiful building west of Venice." Today, still flaunting its historic finery, the luxury Adolphus hotel shines with $80 million worth of renovations and enhancements in the heart of downtown Dallas. You can feel the history of the hotel as soon as you enter the lobby, with arched ceilings and grand chandeliers, you truly feel like you have stepped back in time. I love the upper lobby with its grand paintings and artwork. If you get a chance, take a peek into one of the many ballrooms and feel the history. Now you can save up to 20% on your stay at The Adolphus during its Spring Sale.
A little farther out of downtown in the Uptown/Turtle Creek area, you find the historic Warwick Melrose Hotel. Built in 1924, this historic Dallas landmark offers many luxury guest rooms with a dramatic view of the city. Each oversized guest room and suite features European marble floors with all the modern amenities. As you enter the hotel, you truly feel the elegance of this AAA Four Diamond Hotel. With rates up to 40% off in April, now is the time to experience this truly luxurious hotel.
