It’s Day 176 of the Nowhere To Be Project and I just checked out of the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas. The centrally located Dallas property was originally built as a private estate by a cotton tycoon in the 1920s. From the moment I entered their doors until the moment I left, I felt like a VIP. Each and every staff member I encountered from check-in to check-out demonstrated impeccable attention to detail and a true desire to please. I booked a room package for the Rosewood Mansion through American Express Travel for $333/night (and 5x AmEx points:-). This rate included breakfast ($60) and an additional $100 dining credit along with a complimentary room upgrade, if available (which we did receive).
The hotel is very secluded (yet minutes from everything) and has the feel of a private home. I fell instantly in love with it and wasn’t really sure why until I realized that it resembled my childhood home in terms of classic southern grace and style. We stayed in room 602, a large and well-situated king room with a view of the courtyard. The room and ensuite bath are very well-appointed for relaxation with fine linens, waffle robes and slippers. We felt as if we were the only guests in the hotel because it is so amazingly quiet. There is a heated outdoor pool and an impressive full gym on site as well.
The luxury at Rosewood Mansion certainly doesn’t end with the accommodations. We enjoyed happy hour in the stately lounge, a favorite among locals. We were irked that we lacked the time to enjoy dinner in the lovely dining room, but were impressed by its beauty and elegance. Room service breakfast was outstanding in terms of the service, and in the quality and presentation of the food. I was over the moon to find a vegan breakfast option that included an avocado-basil smoothie, chilled chia oats and fresh fruit! My husband went with a traditional breakfast of bacon and eggs. Their homemade jams were to die for!
We’ve been to Dallas many times and have stayed at several other upscale properties, yet none compare to our luxurious stay at this hotel. This may have been our first visit to the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, but it definitely will not be our last! If you’re looking for subdued luxury and pampering in Dallas, this is THE place!
