Southern Comfort

  • Samantha Brooks

As an additional offering to the seven room types located within the four-story, 154-room Hotel ZaZa in Dallas, 12 new bungalows offer guests a more residential experience when visiting the city.  The new rooms are housed in two adjacent structures located around the corner from the hotel, in Dallas’s State Thomas landmark district, which features the city’s largest collection of Victorian-era residences as well as newer builds with a traditional feel. For the bungalow buildings, the hotel renovated an existing New Orleans–style brick structure from the 1920s, then built a second structure on the adjacent lot; each has six suites.

Bungalow options include a 245-square-foot room with a queen bed; a 920-square-foot, two-bedroom suite with a kitchenette; and a 1,200-square-foot, two-level townhome with a full kitchen and a washer and dryer.  The interiors feature the work of local firm Design Duncan Miller Ullmann (Ritz-Carlton Club, Abaco; Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate, Dubai; and the J.W. Marriott Hotel Hangzhou), which gave the rooms a New Orleans-meets-the-Hamptons aesthetic with exposed-brick walls and marble bathrooms mixed with more colorful upholstered pieces. Guests of the bungalows have access to all of the main hotel’s facilities, including the pool, spa, and fitness center. Nightly rates range from $350 to $2,000.
