Uptown, Dallas, Texas

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A historic, circa-1924 hotel in the upscale Oak Lawn area
  • Renowned, seasonal cuisine at the Landmark Restaurant
  • Live music, light fare, and cocktails at the Library Bar
  • Elegant lobby with columns and chandeliers
  • Spacious rooms with flat-screen TVs and 300 thread-count sheets
  • 24-hour room service
  • Free shuttle service within a 3-mile radius

Cons

  • No pool
  • Fitness center is on the small side
  • Wi-Fi fees
  • Valet parking only, comes with a fee

Bottom Line

This historic property exudes elegance and refinement -- from its stately brick exterior to its ornate lobby with towering columns. The traditional feel extends to the spacious guest rooms, furnished with heavy drapes and embossed fabrics. Upscale touches include 37-inch flat-screen TVs and 300-thread-count sheets. The hotel's renowned Landmark Restaurant and popular Library Bar are a draw, with seasonal cuisine and live music that attract guests and locals alike. However, the property is somewhat lacking in amenities (with just a small fitness center and no pool), and some may find the classic decor a bit staid. Also, the valet parking and Wi-Fi fees may leave some guests feeling nickel-and-dimed. Visitors looking for a hip, modern vibe might prefer the nearby Hotel Zaza.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the thriving and upscale Oak Lawn area, which comprises the outer edge of Uptown Dallas

The hotel is situated in a prime spot in the upscale Oak Lawn on the outer edge of Uptown Dallas. Oak Lawn is one of the wealthier parts of Dallas, with many professionals and urban types living in upscale townhouses, condos, apartments, and duplexes interspersed between older, single family homes. Many nightlife and shopping options are within a couple miles of the hotel.

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.

  • 11-minute drive to Texas Love Field Airport
  • 25-minute drive to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport
  • 2-minute drive or 8-minute walk to Robert E. Lee Park, with running and biking trails
  • 5-minute drive to the artsy Turtle Creek area
  • 5-minute drive or 19-minute walk to the center of West Village, with lots of shops
  • 5-minute drive or 20-minute ride (via public transportation) to the American Airlines Center, home of the Dallas Mavericks and the Dallas Stars
  • 6-minute drive or 12-minute ride (via public transportation) to Kalita Humphreys Theater, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright
  • 6-minute drive or 18-minute ride (via public transportation) to the Dallas Aquarium
  • 7-minute drive or 11-minute ride (via public transportation) to the Dallas Museum of Art
  • 9-minute drive or 19-minute ride (via public transportation) to upscale restaurants at Knox-Henderson
