Dallas’ swank Hotel Zaza might be smalland intimate, but don’t let that fool you — it’s still capable of wowing on a grand scale.
Think of it as mini but mighty, from its posh themed suites to its decadent spa (offering the celeb-loved Dangerous Beauty FiSZZ facial) and award-winning restaurant, Dragonfly. But if you insist on having more room to yourself, the boutique hotel can accommodate you. How about a 1,200-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath, two-story town house in a 1930s-style home — complete with three 47-inch flat-screen TVs, a marble kitchen and a morning butler’s pantry stocked with Odwalla juices and Greek yogurt? You read that right. ZaZa recently debuted The Bungalows at Hotel ZaZa, comprising 12 luxury suites housed in two New Orleans-style homes in the city’s trendy State Thomas neighborhood in Uptown. While adjacent to the hotel, the bungalows are just far enough removed that guests are afforded the utmost in privacy. (All entrances are protected with a card-key gate.) The suites feature a vintage-modern design aesthetic (think ceilings with mirrored panels, massive chandeliers in the bedrooms, distinctive art, retro accent pieces, hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings) and are outfitted with furniture from local purveyors like Uncommon Market, Lost & Found and David Gilbert. From the moment you walk in the door, you’ll want to call it home. And for the mere price of $595 to $2,500, it can be — for at least a night or two.
