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
If you are looking for a great getaway I would highly recommend Zaza!! The Bunaglows are a must we were in #3 very nicely appointed and spacious! We did not even want to leave for dinner it was very quite& relaxing! We have been coming to hotel since the start and have enjoyed all Zaza has to offer definitely will be back!! To many great people over the years but Mary was especially helpful and made our weekend great! Also never disappointed with Dragonfly! Request a table with Juan amazing!
My husband and I stayed at Zaza since it was close to my doctors office. The staff was amazing and catering to our needs. Breona Ford was wonderful and extremely helpful. It was nice to stay at a hotel where everyone was smiling and genuinely kind. I will definitely be back!
Arrived on a Saturday afternoon with a few friends to celebrate my birthday that night. The ambiance was amazing! My room was beautiful and the bed was comfortable. Everything was neat and clean and the bathroom had the best water pressure. The staff was welcoming and the customer service was A+. Had brunch Sunday morning and it was delicious. Definitely going back. Thank you Zaza.
I had the most incredible experience at Hotel ZaZa! From the minute I arrived, the staff went above and beyond to make our stay extra special. The front desk staff, Carolina and Eduardo, chose fantastic rooms for us, walked us through the property and explained a bit about the history of the hotel. I stopped by the spa and the gentlemen working stayed late to help me choose products and the perfect gift. The room was over-the-top gorgeous, funky, and made an otherwise boring work trip ... kinda awesome
Incredible stay! Everyone was fabulous and the hotel was beyond expectations. Cannot wait to go back. I had the great experience thanks to their excellent service. I highly recommend them to my friends.
