Go for: The spa
Part of the ongoing resurgence of downtown Dallas, this new property occupies a revitalized 1920s landmark building and is already undergoing a Texas-size, $78 million renovation to be completed this summer. Original works from artists including Andy Warhol adorn the walls, while perks include free car service within a five-mile radius and Neiman Marcus's personal shopping department available on speed dial from the in-room phones (a little 1%, perhaps, but Texas does lead the country in job creation). The rooftop Joule Poule with its 2,000-plus-square-foot terrace affords spectacular views of the Big D skyline, while post-renovation, the property will have 14,000 square feet of event space and a two-story subterranean ESPA spa, the wellness chain's first in the state.
