The property was originally built to evoke high European style after its owner, a cotton baron, took a Grand Tour of the continent. An elegant mashup of Palladian arches and Moorish domes, the mansion has been restored to its original glory, with hand-carved fireplaces, marble floors, and a vibe that makes it a big hit with bridal parties, honeymooners, and other romance-seekers. The award-winning restaurant, Mansion, is considered one of the city’s finest, and the Mansion Bar is another standout.
In the Area
Catch a performance at the futuristic Norman Foster-designed AT&T Center, spread across 10 acres in the downtown Dallas Arts District and encompassing the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Annette Strauss Square and Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park. Alternately, take a trip back in time at the Majestic Theater, an Art Deco gem once famous for its vaudeville acts that today plays hosts to a wide range of performing artists.
How to Get There
What makes this place so blissful? The staff...every interaction I had over an entire week was gracious, genuine, caring, classy, exqusite and even super fun at times too.They go way out of their way to have you feel known, honored and special.
The Mansion is one of those places that has been on my bucket list for years. And this week, I finally got to stay there.
Have to say the staff is lovely and the service is exceptional. Knowing Rosewood also owns The Carlyle in NYC I had my expectations set very high. And the staff met them brilliantly!
Upon arrival, I was greeted with iced tea and a mini pound cake delivered to my room. I hadn’t had breakfast or lunch yet, so this was a much welcomed respite from the travels of my morning. One of those extra special touches to make my stay more pleasurable. Which must be part of the training program as well. I truly felt as if the staff wanted to go above and beyond in making my stay a memorable one. From Rueben, at the pool to Monica at the bar, to Susan at the restaurant. Susan went above and beyond the call of service and made our night one I’ll never forget. Ask for the chef’s table when making a dinner reservation. The beautifully appointed private room is exceptional!
Also, spend time at the brand new pool! Food and beverage service available until 6:00pm. Getting to it is a bit of a treasure hunt. Go to gym on 3rd floor, exit unmarked white door, take stairs down to the grass area and walk towards the pool. U will need room key to get in the gates. And a lift is available for those who can’t do stairs.
It is under the flight pattern of Love Field, but the ambiance makes up for the momentary noise.
Summer time is a great time to get a deal on the rooms. I have to admit, I would have been upset had I paid full price. The room needed some TLC and isn’t at the level of the rack rate of $875 per night due to carpet needing mending and stretched. As well as the shower fixtures needing repairs. But it wasn’t anything that negatively effected my stay. The linens were luxurious. The bed and pillows perfect. The towels were luxuriously oversized and soft. The sofa pristine and comfortable. The room immaculately clean. And the turn down service included having ice in the ice bucket. Plus the needed renovations will soon be a mute point since they are remodeling this coming year.
Glad I had the opportunity to stay here. It was a pleasure. I can’t wait to come back soon as well as visit other Rosewood hotels. I have Miramar Beach in Montecito on my bucket list now!
This was our third time staying at The Mansion over the last eight to ten years. Picked it especially to splurge on our 40th Anniversary. It’s quiet, charming and the service is good if not always great. BUT the rooms are definitely in need of a facelift....especially for the price! Front desk was very generous to upgrade us to a suite for a portion of the cost. When we first arrived, staff was very friendly and knew it was our anniversary. Bar service was excellent and drinks good.
Unfortunately, it is the small (and sometimes large) details that make a place like this worth the money. 1) My husband had ordered roses through the concierge and he had to call down awhile after we got to the room to ask where they were......they were in the wrong room! 2) I called and requested housekeeping come at noon since we were having guests after lunch but came back from restaurant to a dirty room. 3) Received a call from concierge 90 minutes before our ‘intimate’ anniversary dinner in their restaurant (see restaurant review) saying that they didn’t do cakes, as I had requested a month ago, and was this some kind of a special occasion or something! Yes, our 40th I said, and she said someone would get back to me. Another nice lady called and said they didn’t have a cake order and was this some kind of a special occasion!! YES, our 40th! She then said they lost the cake order!
Could’ve been great.....but wasn’t!
Several years ago we lived in the condos next to the Mansion but never stayed in it.
The location is the simply the best.
The hotel is undergoing renovation which it needs to be a 5 star hotel.
The pool and grounds were first and well done.
Next are the public areas and rooms.
Even though dated the rooms are comfortable, the service excellent and restaurant one of the best in DALLAS.
Highly recommend the bar with great bartenders and waitstaff in a really nice setting. Live entertainment on Thursday,Friday and Saturday.
We will return on our next business trip.
We were overnighting in Dallas to meet family on our way to the Carribean and just stayed one night. One night was fine with me as the room was pretty dated and tired, I couldn't imagine staying longer than that. Scuffed walls, peeling wallpaper and dated furnishings does not fit my expectations of a Rosewood suite.
Thankfully the service within the hotel elevated our stay. From the doorman and front desk staff and those in the restaurant, each one was more than professional, courteous and helpful with our stay. The hotel transfer was seamless.
I look forward to returning only when I see that they have remodeled their rooms and said good-bye to the 80's decor.
