Comfort and Luxury in Downtown Dallas
The scarlet-colored spires of Old Red Museum stand apart from the flickering lights on the skyscrapers that tower over downtown Dallas. The museum—a comprehensive showcase of artifacts illustrating Dallas's history—resides just a short drive from DoubleTree by Hilton Dallas-Campbell Centre. From its berth between the gilded towers of Campbell Centre, the DoubleTree has a unique position among both the bustle of downtown and the nostalgic charm of Dallas's historic West End. And like Dallas itself, the hotel seamlessly blends contemporary convenience with rustic charm.
Beyond the building's sleek exterior, the lobby lays out button-backed chairs amid stocked bookshelves and burnished hardwood floors. As the sun sets, light filters in through floor-to-ceiling windows, which reveal a panoramic vista of the city.
Come morning, diners flock to the Brass Cactus Restaurant for a hearty breakfast buffet as culinary artists sizzle custom omelets at the chef's station. For dinner, executive chef Wes Ebby infuses Southwestern flair into creamy fettuccine chipotle ($14+) or petit filet ($23+), which guests can savor in the intimate eatery or in-room as they play MP3s of clinking silverware on the iHome docking station.
Downtown Dallas: Rich History and Artistic Center
A short stroll from the hopping nightlife of downtown Dallas, horse-drawn carriages clop along brick streets in the city's historic West End district. Live music swells as sightseers stroll past The Old Red Courthouse, whose distinctive red brick façade hearkens back to bygone days before buildings wore sunscreen. An enclave of arts and nature, Dallas overflows with botanical gardens, statue galleries, and live theater.
