Hotel Crescent Court
What it is
A newly renovated jewel with 186 show-stopping rooms and 40 suites, a topnotch spa, 85-degree outdoor pool, locally-lauded cocktail bar, and on-site Starbucks.
What it isn't
Lacking exquisite surfaces. 10 varieties of Italian and Spanish marble line floors and countertops; the roof is decked with Welsh slate.
What we think
Revamped to the tune of $33 million in 2018, Crescent Court rivals any grande dame of Paris—which is exactly what it looks like, thanks to its mansard roofs and leafy courtyards. Rooms are so glamorous they literally gleam, with gold gilt and sculptural furniture, marble vanities in the bathrooms, and a sedate, cozy palette of creams and warm grays. (Instagram influencer types will want to book a bi-level Loft Suite for their spiral staircases and floor to ceiling windows). The 22,000-square-foot spa here is a Dallas beauty queen’s go-to for its new cryotherapy chamber and hot and cold plunge pools, plus treatments like platinum and collagen-infusion facials.
You're here because
You simply must be pampered, or it isn’t a getaway. Crescent Court amenities include valet, shoe shine and laundry service, a doting concierge and even a gratis house car service within 5-miles (so put your Uber app away).
The only thing better than being a member of a private club? Dipping your toes in one on vacay. Tucked away at your table at the 17th-floor Crescent Club beside the rounded window overlooking Dallas, you can’t help but order the lobster ravioli dusted with pea tendrils. Yes, this is Texas.
