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
No words can really describe this hotel. Saying that it’s quirky doesn’t do it justice... Beyond cool! So much attention paid to every detail everywhere in this hotel.... from the artwork to the lobby to the rooms.... just fun and in great taste!
The service was also fantastic.... great reception upon check-in and during the rest of our stay. One of our fave hotels of all time!
Boutique hotels are so much fun when they establish a certain personality and completely capitalize on it. ZaZa has done just that. I've stayed there twice now and the service was impeccable both times. Great place for a small company event for sure. The food is tasty and the drinks a plenty!
We hosted a meeting at Hotel Zaza and had a wonderful experience every step of the way. The catering and meeting space is fantastic! Robby is amazing and super helpful. All and all a great hotel! We will definitely be back!
Along with an amazing atmosphere, the service was wonderful, especially the concierge Robby, overall I was very pleased with my stay. Any other visit to Dallas I will be sure to book hotel Zaza! Great people provide great service.
Once you enter the hotel you are immediately treated like royalty. Everyone working there from the concierge, to the front desk all the way to the housekeepers were amazing and helped with what ever they could! The bungalow is a must! It was gorgeous and the houses that are next to it are so pretty to look at! The spa is a must do if you go here, or even if you are just in Dallas and would like some pampering! Would recommend to anybody to stay and will be visiting again!
