Dallas Welcomes Ritz-Carlton

Ritz-Carlton is making its way into Dallas, Texas' third largest city and the ninth largest in the country, with the new The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. Nestled in the heart of trendy Uptown, the boutique hotel features the signature elements that come with the Ritz-Carlton brand blended with a style of its own "distinctively Texas" touches. Our favorite is the nightly Guacamologist who prepares fresh guacamole tableside.

Other amenities include Fearing's Restaurant, which was rated number one in Hotel Dining in the U.S. by the 2009 Zagat Hotels, Resorts & Spas Survey. This signature restaurant of celebrity chef Dean Fearing features "elevated American cuisine" and farm-to-market specialties in seven dining and gathering settings. The hotel's 12,000-square-foot  Ritz-Carlton Spa offers classic therapies and Texas-themed treatments, such as Dean's Margarita Salt Glow, the Texas Eight-Hand Massage, and Manicures and Margaritas every Monday. The Ritz-Carlton Ballroom is the city's largest luxury ballroom, accommodating up to 1,000 guests. All events are personalized to create an ideal setting for both business and social celebrations. At the Terrace Deck Swimming Pool, guests can relax in a heated, salinated, outdoor swimming pool which boasts skyline views and refreshing light bites and beverages. Finally, the Ritz-Carlton Club Level is a "hotel within a hotel," which features dedicated concierge service and a luxurious lounge environment with complimentary Internet access and continuous food and beverage offerings throughout the day.

Just steps from shopping, dining and entertainment, the boutique hotel provides convenient access to the city's top destinations, hidden treasures and local favorites. The hotel is even a stop for the picturesque McKinney Avenue Trolley, which provides complimentary shuttle service throughout Uptown and the 19-block Arts District. Guests will also find themselves within walking distance of the American Airlines Center, which is home to the Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars games, as well as myriad entertainment events.
