Whether you’re in town for Dallas conventions, a corporate event or just for vacation–you need a place to stay. Luckily there are plenty of hotels centrally located in Downtown Dallas. Just as many Dallas venues hold corporate events, there are plenty of comfortable hotels for you to relax in.

Hotels Near Downtown Dallas
For those attending an event at the Dallas Convention center, there are plenty of luxury hotel options just a short distance away. Corporate venues in Dallas are often near the downtown area, where there are equally as many entertaining spaces–including the Trolley in Uptown, the Farmers Market in Downtown and plenty of bars.

Magnolia Hotel Dallas
Located on Commerce Street in the Main Street District of Downtown, the Magnolia Hotel is a 29-story upscale hotel that for many years was the tallest building in Texas (1923-1927), and the structure is now a Dallas Landmark. Built in 1922, the hotel was originally the headquarters for the Magnolia Petroleum Company. In 1977, developers from Colorado purchased the building and transformed it into the 330 room luxury hotel that it is today.

“I booked a room in this hotel for the sole purpose of convenience.  It is walking distance to the Dallas Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon start and the Dallas Convention Center where the Expo is held.” -yelp customer review

Aloft Dallas Downtown Hotel
For those interested in a more urban environment, the Aloft Hotel on Young Street near the Historic District Downtown provides an excellent setting. As a vision of the W hotel chain, Aloft “offers atmospheric public spaces where guests can mix and mingle” in non-traditional environments. This hotel would be ideal for a young professional. City Tavern and the Gilley’s Complex are also conveniently located nearby–for those interested in bars and live music in Dallas.

“Loved the historic district and the lovely walk on a busy Saturday or a night out Sunday. A walk around the town is a must! Lovely views and busy nightlife.(…)” -yelp customer review

Ritz-Carlton Dallas
Exhibiting a more classic, luxurious style, the Ritz-Carlton in Uptown is just 1.2 miles from the convention center, and features a beautiful restaurant downstairs. For those tired of corporate catering and looking for something more upscale, the restaurant at the hotel will surely suffice. As the city is mostly driving centered, there are plenty of Dallas valet services at hotels, and the Ritz-Carlton is no exception. This classic hotel has all the amenities for those who prefer to travel comfortably.

“I travel a lot for work and you will get a friendly front desk from time to time, but looking back….everyone went out of their way to make this stay memorable for us. (…)” -yelp customer review
