Dallas, TX | Hotel ZaZa
Glitz. Glamour. Gold. Dallas has a reputation as a cosmopolitan city that isn't afraid to flaunt its flashiness. And few hotels in the city feel more Big D than Hotel ZaZa in Dallas' swank Uptown district. The pet-friendly property hosts everyone from celebrities to those who simply wish to feel like superstars for a few nights. The sophistication scales definitely tip toward professionals from their twenties on up so children aren't a common site anywhere on property, but high-energy pool parties and over-the-top Sunday School brunches specifically cater to the 21+ set.
5 Reasons to Visit Hotel ZaZa Dallas Uptown
Poolside at ZaZa
What the pool lacks in size, it makes up for as one of the hottest "scenes" in town for hotel guests and locals alike. Pretty people flock to the urban oasis to sip champagne and splash to the beats of whatever of-the-moment DJ is making headlines. Plus, during regular hours it's only open to guests over 14. And during even parties and special events, the minimum age jumps to 18 or 21, depending on the circumstances.
Magnificent 7 Suites
Whether you're looking to escape from kids or everyone in the outside world, you can't do it with more pizzazz than one of these insanely appointed multi-room suites boasting anywhere from 1,300 to 2,150 square feet. Choose from themes including Crouching Tiger, Dangerous Beauty or Rock Star and you'll be sure to impress anyone who visits, even if it's just yourself.
Directly behind the main boutique hotel portion of Hotel ZaZa you'll find these 12 quaint-yet-sophisticated bungalows in a 1930s-era home. Amenities include large bedrooms, luxurious bathrooms and kitchenettes or full kitchens if you feel more at home while cooking. Or hiring the hotel chef to do it for you.
Like the pool, nobody under 16 will be admitted to the spa for treatments or to use the spa facilities. So, here too, you're unlikely to ever hear any kind of outburst or tantrum. (Hopefully.) This luxe retreat offers signature treatments ranging from hot stone and four-handed massages to detoxifying facials and body wraps for those who want to erase the effects of a crazy night before.
Locally sourced, seasonal ingredients form the foundation of the all-day menus at this chef-driven restaurant with plenty of charm and whimsy to spare. Private rooms welcome groups small and large, while the terrace makes for a pleasurable al fresco dining experience any time of day. After 10:00 p.m., Dragonfly only welcomes guests over 21, so if you truly want to be kid-free, make your reservations accordingly.
