Three Dallas hotels rank among the best properties in the world, at least according to Conde Nast Traveler readers. The magazine recently put out its 2014 Gold List, and the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, Rosewood Crescent Hotel and Ritz-Carlton made the cut.
With an overall readers’ choice rating of 93.7, the Mansion was lauded as a “110 percent top-notch hotel” with a restaurant that is “always buzzing with a great crowd.” We also think the people watching is pretty grand at the bar.
“Texas fun with Ritz restraint” is how readers describe the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, which earned a score of 93. Also noteworthy: the nightly ritual of margarita tastings and fresh guacamole preparation in the lobby lounge. Oh, and the Rattlesnake Bar is right up there with the Mansion Bar.
Another Gold List mainstay, the Rosewood Crescent, with a 90.9 rating, was appreciated as a place to “escape from the Dallas craziness.” With a “perfect” location in Uptown, this is a popular spot among business travelers who also appreciate onsite restaurant Nobu and other nearby dining options.
Nearly 80,000 Conde Nast Traveler readers scored this year’s Gold List properties based on service, rooms, food, location, design and activities. Hotels, resorts and cruises worldwide are considered each year, with 200 U.S. destinations selected as 2014 standouts.
These three Dallas properties also made Conde Nast’s recent list of the best hotels in Texas. Other Texas hotels on the Gold List 2014 include Hotel Sorella and Hotel Granduca in Houston, as well as Hotel Valencia Riverwalk and Mokara Hotel & Spa in San Antonio.
