Uptown Inn Balances Modern Amenities with Antique Touches
Though the Victorian-style buildings of Dallas’s Uptown neighborhood look old, many of its buildings were constructed during the late 20th and early 21st century. A new school of city planning called New Urbanism accounts for the old-school vibe, reinforced by the pedestrian-friendly streets. Mirroring the neighborhood, Bailey’s Uptown Inn retains the charm of a historical inn while benefiting from all the amenities of modernity.
The inn’s rooms emphasize this theme by juxtaposing antique touches with modern facilities. The Blue room contrasts a wooden four-poster bed with an en suite jacuzzi bathtub, and an heirloom writing desk welcomes those staying in the Chocolate room.
Located north of downtown Dallas, Uptown was designed with pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, boutique shops, and endless restaurants. The 3.5-mile long Katy Trail winds through Uptown and neighboring Oak Lawn, attracting joggers, bicyclists, and inline skaters. The path was built over an abandoned railroad track, and four of the trail’s projected six pedestrian bridges have been built to date, bolstering the neighborhood’s reputation as a haven for runners.
