The Mansion on Turtle Creek

    In Dallas, everything is Texas big, from the mall-size store for cowboy boots to the ubiquitous billboards promoting gentlemen’s clubs. To enter the Mansion on Turtle Creek, however, is to step into a place where the big and bold city calms down and behaves itself. The Mansion’s green, residential surroundings—near the namesake Turtle Creek—hint of the tranquillity in store once you pass through the hotel’s front entrance. Tea, coffee, and snacks are at your disposal in the lobby, where cool-colored stone contrasts with warm-colored fabrics. Here, and amid the antiques and fresh flowers in your suite, the cliché is unavoidable: The Mansion on Turtle Creek, as with the finest hotels in Europe, feels like home. Accommodations Antique furnishings, original works of art, and fresh flowers adorn the 127 rooms and 16 suites. Facilities A fitness room and sauna, a business center, an outdoor heated pool, and four Lexus vehicles for guests who want to drive around town. Dining The recently renovated Mansion Restaurant features a Chef’s Room in the mansion’s original library, which is a 20-seat venue serving a three-course prix-fixe menu. Concierge Recommends Peruse Dallas’ finest boutiques after hours with a personal shopper. The concierge will make the necessary arrangements. Rates Deluxe rooms are $525, parlor suites $800 to $1,100. The presidential terrace suite is $2,400.
