Airport Hotel Located in the Middle of the Metroplex
Though they are often referred together as "the Metroplex," Dallas and Fort Worth are actually about located 30 miles apart from downtown to downtown, and each town offers a vastly different experience. Dallas is the southwest’s financial hub, displayed in its upscale shopping centers and the new $354 million AT&T Performing Arts Center. To the west, Fort Worth fosters a laid-back vibe that centers on its legendary cattle drives and world-class museums. Here, you can spend the morning inspecting a Jackson Pollock masterpiece at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, then watch cowboys herd cattle in the afternoon. Situated between these two cultural anchors, Holiday Inn Dallas-Forth Worth Airport South puts guests in position to see both sides of the Lone Star State’s largest metropolitan area.
Located about 10 minutes from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the hotel grants guests easy access to flights via a free shuttle. The 24-hour service can also stop off at other locations within a 5-mile radius of the hotel. For breakfast, lunch, or dinner, head to One Bistro + Bar, the hotel's contemporary American restaurant, where you can indulge in all-you-can-eat pasta or create a burger masterpiece at a toppings bar with 25 options. The hotel lounge lets guests kick off the night with signature apple martinis and margaritas. Stick around for the bar’s live entertainment, which ranges from karaoke nights to DJ-fueled R & B dance parties that go until 2 a.m.
Along the outdoor pool, there’s a sleek social area with white lounge chairs and a counter-style table. At night, retire to the hotel’s spacious guest rooms, which reflect the hotel's contemporary vibe with bright accented walls and mounted headboards.
Fort Worth: Western Hub with Bustling Downtown
Once a market for buying and selling cattle, sheep, and hogs, the Fort Worth Stockyards is today a historical district where the smell of smoked meats from barbecue joints and country music from rowdy honky-tonks fill the air. It’s the best place in the city to go for an authentic Texas experience. You can still watch drovers on horseback parade herds of cattle down the main drag en route to a live auction. Live musicians accompany line dancing at the site of a famous 19th-century gunfight, and at a nearby rodeo center, modern-day cowboys demonstrate bull riding and barrel racing during two-hour exhibitions.
In the cultural district—about a 10-minute drive south—world-class museums stand along tree-lined brick boulevards. Acclaimed as one of the most striking architectural designs of the modern era, the Kimbell Art Museum houses ancient artifacts, a painting thought to be Michelangelo's first, and early Ninja Turtles sketches. At the free-to-the-public Amon Carter Museum of American Art, you can survey a collection of American works, including several paintings from the Hudson River School.
