Dallas Does it Right with LGBTQ Lodging
Dallas is one of my favorite destinations. I've had the opportunity to visit many times over the past decade. The overall scope and diversity of the city is a wonderful surprise. Cedar Springs Road is the heart of the Dallas LGBTQ community and offers a variety of restaurants, shops and nightlife that are worth visiting. Here are three LGBTQ-friendly properties in Dallas that you should consider staying at during your stay.
The long-awaited Virgin Hotel opened late 2019 in the Design District. The 200-room hotel features three dining concepts – The Commons Club, which is designed to feel like a “members only” club but will be open to the public. The Pool Club that offers light bites and cocktails, and the Funny Library Coffee Shop that includes a communal workspace. Renowned chef Matt McCallister is the executive chef at the Commons Club, the new restaurant at the Virgin Hotel restaurant. McCallister, who also runs Homewood, will implement a seasonally driven with French influence menu for the Commons Club. The hotel is the fourth Virgin Hotel property in the U.S.
Situated on 45 acres overlooking Downtown Dallas, the award-winning Hilton Anatole Hotel brings you luxurious accommodations and first-class amenities on a truly magnificent scale, providing the most comprehensive, elegant, and productive facility in the industry.
Located in the heart of the Cedars District, the CANVAS Hotel is known for its rooftop pool and bar with views of the city skyline. The boutique hotel is close to several entertainment districts, including downtown, Deep Ellum, Uptown and the Arts District.
