Off McKinney Avenue, straddling uptown and downtown Dallas, the Hotel ZaZa came onto the scene in 2002 and is still the city’s paragon of cool. The Mediterranean-inspired property bursts with eclectic artifacts from around the globe, from African tribal masks and Moroccan lanterns to sculptures and wine bottle chandeliers. It’s all a little over the top. But then, so is Dallas.
Bed and Bath
Standard rooms have a muted luxe look with upholstered, nailhead-trimmed headboards, workdesks with Eames chairs and Helmet Newton photographs. Themed suites are outrageous, all-out affairs—-the Shag-a-delic has shag carpets, a circular couch and lava lamps. The Far East? Elephant lamps, Asian lanterns and Chinoiserie fabrics. All rooms have marble bathrooms, Italian linens and rain showers.
The ZaSpa indulges with treatment rooms and fragrant products. The hotel’s Dragonfly restaurant is one of the most sought-after reservations in town, and the pool bar lounge has a heated patio beneath the stars during winter and a poolside party in the warmer months.
In the Area
The hotel’s location puts guests near uptown shopping and restaurants and downtown museums, theaters and bars. Tei-An serves upscale house-made soba and Chef Teiichi Sakurai’s stunning omakase menu as well as a long list of premier libations. Dallas is the birthplace of Neiman Marcus, but the city’s must-shop destination is Stanley Korshak, Big D’s version of Bergdorf Goodman. In need of culture? Dallas has invested serious dollars in its arts district, which now includes the Norman Foster–designed Winspear Opera House and Rem Koolhaas’s Wyly Theatre. Or get historical and peer through the actual window from which Lee Harvey Oswald fired at President John F. Kennedy at the Sixth Floor Museum.
How to Get There
Was up in Dallas last week on a routine business trip. I've enjoyed the Zaza Hotels In Texas other markets but this one blew me away. I could tell the staff was very happy to be working there,. From the valets to the front desk and restaurant workers it was a great experience all around. My room was quite spacious and I felt quite a bargain for the price. Very unique property with several artful touches. I even got my tarot cards read when I got back to the hotel for the evening. My future is bright according to the card reader!
I highly recommend Hotel ZaZa! The staff was accommodating and extremely friendly. The decor is fun, quirky, eclectic, stylish and inspired by different regions around the globe. Our room had a very comfortable bed, and the in-room amenities were C.O Bigelow.
My husband and I ate at the restaurant “Dragonfly” for lunch, we split a crabcake appetizer and the crab was fresh and tasty. I had the best veggie burger I have ever had and my husband said his lamb was delicious.
I spent a few hours at the ZaSpa and Amanda provided the best facial I have ever received and recommend some
really great products. The hotel is a great location in Dallas, located close to good restaurants and shopping. I will definitely be visiting Hotel ZaZa again, and recommending the Hotel to everyone!
Every details is very trendy and design, loved my huge room very eleganly furnished, bathroom are large but would actually need a restyle.
very much appreciated the refresh corner in the lobby with deliciuos cookies. service is outstanding. loved the chandelier in the lobby and the big painting.
Hotel Zaza in every capacity (hotel, restaurant Dragonfly, pool, service) is as unique as it is splendid. Whether you are from out of town wanting to soak up all that is Dallas, or a local looking for respite from the ordinary minutia of life...Hotel Zaza is in a league of its own parralleled by none. I recently sent four colleagues from New York and Palm Beach, and they raved about every facet of the hotel, and it was my fortune to have the General Manager Alex accommodate them. If you have not had the opportunity to experience everything that is Hotel Zaza, make sure you rearrange your travel plans!
I was questioning if it was worth it to stay here because it meant I had to drive rather than walk to my destination. I have officially decided I will only stay at Zaza when I'm in Dallas. I was upgraded to a beautiful unique large room with no additional fee. The room service was flawless and timely,the staff gracious and helpful.Try to stay in one of the unique rooms if you can.
