Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Outdoor pool and Jacuzzi in sophisticated, Mediterranean-like setting
  • Hip vibe, with a trendy restaurant and bar scene
  • Rooms are large with cool, modern decor
  • Spacious fitness center with good selection of equipment
  • Free car service within a 4-mile radius
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Pet-friendly, for a reasonable fee

Cons

  • Late-night parties can be loud
  • Pricey valet-only parking
  • Not the best choice for families

Bottom Line

A glamorous, ultra-hip hangout, the 153-room Hotel ZaZa is a cool alternative to the luxurious but sometimes stuffy hotels in Uptown Dallas. Guests and locals mingle at the gourmet restaurant, Dragonfly, and at Poolside, the site of outdoor cocktail parties year-round. Rooms have a similar trendy vibe, with animal print accents and black-and-white Old Hollywood photographs. But noise from the late-night reveling can carry to the rooms, so families may consider the similarly stylish but more kid-friendly nearby Rosewood Crescent Hotel or the Hotel Palomar in Downtown.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In popular Uptown Dallas, near the trendy shopping area of West Village and a short drive from area attractions

Divided into several areas -- Victory Park, McKinney Avenue, Knox-Henderson, and West Village -- Uptown Dallas is a hot spot of shops, restaurants, and nightlife. Creating the border on the south side, Victory Park is home to the American Airlines Center, a huge sports and entertainment complex where the Dallas Mavericks and the Dallas Stars play. Numerous high-end hotels are in the area, which is also a posh residential neighborhood. To the north, McKinney Avenue is lined with art galleries, and Knox-Henderson is packed with upscale restaurants. West Village offers great shopping -- whether you're looking for trendy boutiques or high-end labels -- and has some of the best nightlife in Dallas, and nearby Turtle Creek is known as the artsy, gay-friendly area where the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Kalita Humphreys Theater sits.

Hotel ZaZa is on the edge of the West Village, giving it an ideal location between West Village's nightlife and Victory Park's American Airlines Center.
