Modern and swanky hotel with fantastic on-site restaurant
Valet parking is the only option
The Highland Dallas was the first hotel in Hilton's boutique Curio Collection, and it aims to add sleek personality to the hotel. Recent guests haven't been disappointed with the swanky digs or the customer service, saying staff goes out of their way to meet their needs (including the needs of four-legged friends). Pooches aren't the only ones pampered at this property, however: Treat yourself to a massage or yoga class at the Exhale Spa before spending a lazy afternoon by the infinity pool and an evening at the popular Knife Restaurant. When it's time to sleep, you'll find Italian Frette linens and 32-inch flat-screen TVs in your room. And while these features – combined with a great seat near the southeast corner of Southern Methodist University's campus – surely capture guests' attention, most visitors say that it's the warm, welcoming staff that make their stays memorable. Members of the Hilton Honors loyalty program may use their existing points for perks like free room upgrades.

Although it's tucked inside an unsightly '60s skyscraper, the Highland retains the soul of a boutique hotel.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended


This 198-room property, formerly Hotel Palomar, is a stylish pick in the affluent Park Cities area, across the highway from the Southern Methodist University.
