Texas is certainly a huge state with plenty of great hotels. There’s something for everyone! Here are a few options to consider when planning a trip Austin, Dallas, Irving, or Castroville.
Habitat Suites is just what the name says it is, making guests feel like they’re in their own habitat or home. Each suite has a separate bedroom and bathroom from the living room (the hotel is actually a repurposed apartment building) and comes with a fully furnished kitchen. Some even have fireplaces. Guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast in the mornings, free Wi-Fi in public spaces, and a saltwater pool on property. Rates generally start at around $100 per night for a one-bedroom suite but don’t really jump up too much from there for a larger suite.
Sheraton Dallas Hotel by the Galleria
The Sheraton Dallas Hotel by the Galleria is a newly renovated hotel in Dallas with easy access to nearby attractions such as the Galleria Mall, the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, and local golf. Business travelers will enjoy the business center where they can use the computer and printer. Nightly rates are typically under $100, which is great for such a popular area. The hotel has an on-site restaurant called Front Yard Restaurant, serving each meal of the day, as well as a pool and a fitness center. Rooms are more than comfortable with modern and inviting décor, and guests will enjoy the granite countertops in the bathroom – evidence of a well-done renovation.
Sheraton Suites Market Center Dallas
Those staying at the Sheraton Suites Market Center Dallas will love its location close to both downtown Dallas and Dallas Love Field airport. Nearby attractions include many options for shopping, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Dallas Zoo and Aquarium. Guests will also enjoy quick access to Dallas’ DART transit system. Each room is equipped with a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed in a spacious suite, and the fact that the hotel is newly renovated attracts guests. The hotel has an on-site restaurant, Red Fire Grill Bar and Lounge, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Nightly rates are typically between $100-$200.
The Westin Dallas Fort Worth Airport
Guests at the Westin Dallas Fort Worth Airport will love its complimentary shuttle to the Dallas Fort Worth airport as well as the hotel’s proximity to the nearby AT&T Stadium for football and attractions in downtown Dallas. The hotel’s amenities include a rooftop pool, three on-site restaurants, a 24-hour fitness room, and a spa tub. Each room has a Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Bath toiletries, complimentary Wi-Fi, and HDTV. Rates are generally under $200.
Outside the hustle and bustle of a big city, Hotel Alsace is located in Castroville where guests can enjoy the beautiful green landscapes and large outdoor pool. Each bedroom has one king-sized bed with fine quality linens, a private balcony, HDTV, and a mini-refrigerator. Guests are provided daily breakfast with an option to dine in the hotel’s on-site restaurant for lunch and dinner as well. Other amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi and a full-service spa (advance reservations recommended). Believe it or not, rates are generally less than $100 per night, making the hotel seem like an undiscovered diamond in the rough.
