Off Highway 75 and across from the Southern Methodist University, in the affluent Park Cities area
The Highland Dallas is located on east Mockingbird Lane, which is the border between the affluent neighborhoods of Highland Park and University Park, known together as Park Cities. Preppy Southern Methodist University is located across Highway 75, and there are shops and fast food restaurants a short drive away, along Mockingbird Lane on both directions. There are no tourist attractions nearby, but there are three train lines and six buses within walking distance.
Highland Park and University Park are two of the most affluent communities in the US. The heart of this area is the Southern Methodist University, which stands on a huge campus off Highway 75. There are many convenient stores along its southern border (Mockingbird Lane), on the eastern edge of it, and on Greenville Avenue, on the other side of the highway.
This 198-room property, formerly Hotel Palomar, is a stylish pick in the affluent Park Cities area, across the highway from the Southern Methodist University. Spacious, contemporary rooms come with the standard high-tech amenities (flat-screen TVs, iPod docks), plus nice perks like Nintendos and free yoga equipment. One of the hotel’s top features is its lovely outdoor infinity pool, surrounded by lounge chairs and a couple of cabanas. The property also has an American restaurant with chic, modern design, and a bright, state-of-the-art fitness center. But it's a 20-minute train ride from Downtown Dallas.
