If business or pleasure takes you to Addison (just north of the Dallas city limits), InterContinental Dallas is right in the center of the action. Close to Galleria Dallas and tons of restaurant and nightlife options (though fairly straight), this hotel has recently renovated its rooms and added a club level, too. InterContinental Dallas also features some of the most amazing suites we’ve ever stayed in, with two-story homes away from home. These special suites feature full-size living and dining rooms, two bedrooms, and one even includes a private in-suite sauna. Deluxe rooms are great, too, with sumptuous bedding and spacious layouts. Downstairs, there’s a large outdoor pool and hot tub, as well as a well-appointed fitness center and gender-specific locker rooms with sauna and showers.
Room Rates: $144 and up
What Makes It Great: Q de Cheval, the on-site restaurant serves up innovative, chef-driven cuisine and a can’t-be-beat Friday all-you-can-eat prime rib and seafood dinner. This is Texas, after all!
Nearby Attractions: Galleria Dallas, Town of Addison special events (including Kaboom!Town and Oktoberfest), 11 miles from gay entertainment district.
