Greater Dallas Hotel Near Designer Shopping Centers
The Hilton Garden Inn Dallas/Allen is located in an upscale suburb just 30 minutes outside of Dallas. Allen’s wildlife sanctuaries and mansion museums are scattered in the neighborhoods nearby; for serious shoppers, however, the hotel is a destination unto itself. Located just across the street, Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm is home to more than 40 clothing boutiques and home-decor shops, and bargain hunters can sift through the wares of more than 100 premier designers at the outlet center 3 miles north.
The hotel's onsite restaurant, Great American Grill, serves classic all-American fare for breakfast and dinner; cook to order breakfasts include pancakes, waffles, and omelets. Daily cocktails and appetizers are also included in this deal. Downstairs, there’s a heated outdoor pool and whirlpool, and a fitness center that’s open 24 hours, much like a broken Pandora’s box.
With adjustable beds and a flat-screen TV, standard guest rooms are comfortable landing spots for the end of the day. Order room service and watch a movie in bed, or snack on treats from the hotel's 24-hour pavilion pantry. Mini fridges, microwaves, and a complimentary remote-printing service minimize common traveling woes.
Allen, TX: Sprawling Shopping Centers Just Outside Dallas
Allen is a small city located just north of Dallas, and is best known for its shopping. A self-proclaimed "retail resort," Watters Creek has a stylish assortment of outdoor shops and dining venues ranging from waterside cafes to steak houses. Specialty shops can also be found at The Village at Allen, located 4 miles from the hotel. For a more active afternoon, tee off at the local golf course, bounce around an indoor trampoline park, or explore 40 miles of hiking and biking trails.
Twenty miles south lies Dallas, an enclave of arts and nature overflowing with botanical gardens, art galleries, and live theater. A short walk from downtown, you’ll find horse-drawn carriages clopping along brick streets in the city's historic West End district, which dates back to the 19th century. The West End became especially notable when President Kennedy was assassinated at Dealey Plaza in November 1963. At The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza you can visit the sixth floor of the former Texas School Book Depository, where Lee Harvey Oswald is believed to have shot at Kennedy’s presidential motorcade.
