Newcomers to Dallas’ hotel scene are hot, according to Condé Nast Traveler.
The hip and swanky W Dallas Victory and Hotel Palomar were among 138 new hotels around the world named to magazine’s 2007 Hot List for their style, location, service and value.
Located in the Victory development near downtown, Starwood’s W Dallas Victory opened last June, boasting the ultra-hip Ghostbar, Bliss Spa and Craft Restaurant.
Hotel Palomar, part of the Kimpton Hotels & Restaurant Group LLC, breathed new life into the derelict Hotel Santa Fe at Mockingbird Lane and North Central Expressway last fall and includes the Central 214 restaurant, Exhale spa and the retro Trader Vic’s.
The only other Texas property to make the list was the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa near Austin.
