      The best place in Dallas

      Reviewed May 19, 2011
      by (16 reviews)

      The Belmont was fantastic. By far the best place in Dallas, I barely felt the need to leave the hotel at all. The pool was great, especially in the evening with 'Dive In' movies. 'Smoke' the adjoining restaurant, the best in town and the bar had the best views over the Dallas skyline. Luckily I scored a room with skyline views as well.

      My room was spacious, clean and homely. The staff were helpful and even dropped me off in town and picked me up when I was done with their list of suggestions.

      Although I wasn't overwhelmed by Dallas itself, the Belmont was the saving grace of my stay, I'd almost go back just to stay at the hotel again!

      Historical Traveler Reviews Belmont Hotel Dallas

      Terrific!

      from

      If you have ever wondered what it would be like to stay at a vintage motor court, you MUST give The Belmont a whirl! Set atop a massive hill overlooking downtown Dallas, this late-1940's streamlined art deco hotel is a delightful mix of vintage, retro, Texana and modern. Rooms are large and nicely furnished with modern flair. Our bathroom contained the original whimsical pink tile from the late 40's and was stocked with Kiehl's products--in bottles much larger than travel-size! Rooms are either located in the main building (an art deco treat) or in somewhat linear bungalows, each with a different-colored front door and in some cases, adjacent to screened "porches" (cleverly-converted parking carports from The Belmont's early days). Lush desert grasses, foliage and flowers lend to the southwest feel of the landscaping and the beautiful pool evokes minimalist sculpture at it's best. The cocktail bar inside the main building is comfortable and bustling--a mix of tourists and locals, and houses a complimentary continental breakfast in the a.m. as well. Our stay was truly a pleasure and we plan to return for another Texas-size helping of fresh decor, great service and retro chic very soon!

      Lovely Hotel!!

      from

      This is a wonderful hotel nestled in the heart of Oak Cliff, only a few miles from Downtown Dallas, as well as the newly restored Bishop Arts District. Some people might say this area is not the best in Dallas, but I've lived in Oak Cliff all of my life and it is a wonderful place to live. In fact, I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. There are hidden gems in this part of Dallas and The Belmont just happens to be one of them. I wouldn't worry too much about your safety either, since as one reviewer mentioned earlier, there are million dollar homes not even two blocks down the street!

      My husband and I have been wanting to stay here ever since it opened and we picked our anniversary as the night to get away. We stayed in one of the garden suites, and the greatest thing about our room was that it overlooked the Dallas skyline. Long swaying trees provided a canopy right above one of our windows. Being lifetime Dallas residents, I didn't feel that I was in Dallas but somewhere very far away. The rooms were so comfy, especially the giant garden tub in our room. We also went swimming in the saltwater pool and it was very warm and relaxing.

      Be sure to also hit up the Bar Belmont. I couldn't drink since I'm currently pregnant, but my husband raved about the drinks. They do make wonderful Shirley Temples there too :)

      Aiiiight!

      from

      My wife and I were letting some friends borrow our place for the weekend. We just wanted to find a nice hotel close to home that was different from Hilton Anatole for change. I frequent [-------------------] alot, so I found the Belmont. I'm from this area of Dallas (Oak Cliff), and I have never payed any attention to this hotel. The pictures on line were nice, and it looked like it would be nice for the weekend. We did not book through anyone, since we live right around the corner in the Kessler Park area, we just walked in and got a room. Valet was great and they took care of our vehicle. The front desk attendant was really nice too, and she told us about everything that was happening at the hotel that weekend. We got an outside Bongalo, these rooms are pretty nice, and housekeeping really does a good job on the rooms. We just had a couple problems with the stay. The first problem was, you can't set the thermostat below 72 degrees, and if you have never been to Dallas, it gets plenty hot here! I set it right at 72, my wife and I left and came back(two hour duration), and the room temp had only gone from 78 to 77. The A/C was blowing out cool air, but we could not feel it due to the fact the vent was blowing air at the window. So, the room stayed hot, because the cool air was being blown to a very hot window. The next issues were the beds, in my opinion, and this is just my opinion, the beds are pretty hard. With the room being hot, and then the beds being hard, needless to say we got no sleep. I think if you want to have a comfortable stay in this hotel in the summer, definitely choose to stay inside the hotel, DO NOT CHOOSE AN OUTSIDE BONGALO IN THE SUMMER! Besides those issues, I think it was a pretty good hotel. Being a community activist I believe that it is great for the community. People mentioned in previous critiques that the area was sort of "seedy". This could be said about the area, but they are making a big change in the community right now. The hotel is nowhere from the AA Center and the W Hotel. They are going to be continued projects to improve the area, and in about five to ten years this neighborhood will be done with it's growing pains. The neighborhood is perfectly safe, because thirty seconds done the block, you have million dollar homes. So don't let the neighborhood become an issue. Good for Dallas, but not us, we will stick with the W or the Anatole. But this place is definitely worth a visit !

      Super hip...in a good way

      from

      Incredible hip oasis in a town that is otherwise lackluster (ok, so I am not a big fan of dallas :-)). The Belmont in a nice refuge from the ever so pretenious boutique hotels that have flourished in dallas. great design, great price, nice continental breakfast, great staff. If you have to go to dallas and want a nice affordable place to stay, this is it.

      Awesome Retro Modern Hotel

      from

      This was a totally awesome hotel! Of course I love anything and everything from the late 40's 50's and early 60's. This felt like being in a time warp. The staff was exceptionally friendly. I don't think I have ever seen so many people at one location where they actually seemed to enjoy their job. I didn't actually go into the bar area but I hear that it is fabulous. The decor in the room is very Ikea/Crate and Barrel. The tile in the bathroom also seems to be the original tile from when it was orginally built. The rooms were very clean and the views from all parts of the hotel including our room window were great! The saltwalter pool is very relaxing, especially at night where you can sit and look at the Dallas skyline twinkling in the distance. Oak Cliff seems to be somewhat of a depressed part of Dallas but it also seems as if there is significant improvement currently going on as well as some to come in the future. I was not concerned about safety the whole time I was there, so don't let the area dissuade you from staying here. I will defintely be returning.

      Way kewl hotel

      from

      Was out in Dallas for a friend's birthday and the Belmont was suggested for out of town guest. Felt like you should have been given a martini and smoking jacket as soon as you swaggered into the lobby. (think Deano's rumpus room) Very kewl concept. Feels very Austin-like. Great view of downtown Dallas especially from the saltwater pool. (where they also have weekly dive-in movies and drinks for the locals...had to leave town before they shows Evil Dead by the pool). We had two ajoining rooms for wife and I and 2 children. The kids LOVED their way kewl room.

      Yes, the area was a little iffy when I lived in Dallas (8 years ago) but does look to be undergoing some new hipness.

      I'm just looking for another excuse to travel back to Dallas and give it a whirl again...

      Great Hotel!

      from

      As a business traveler I have stayed in many hotels and never wasted by time writing a review. This hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Besides the fact that it is a small, modern, charming, clean place the staff is what really makes the difference. Everyone was extremely helpful, kind and willing to go the extra mile to insure our comfort. Little evening events like cookie tasing and drinking out by the pool gave us a nice break from the work day. When I return to Dallas I would never think of staying elsewhere. Worth every penny and then some.

      A great alternative to blah corporate hotels

      from

      What an amazingly cool hotel!!!

      Originally built in 1948, this motor-court style hotel fell on hard times over the last few decades until it was carefully restored and opened again in November, 2005. Frankly it's not located in the best part of Dallas (actually Oak Cliff); when I lived in Dallas I remember driving by and thinking it was probably a great place to score some crack or a hooker. On the upside it is wrapped around a high(ish) bluff with a phenomenal view of Downtown Dallas which is less than a, very very easy, 5 minute drive away; close to the West-End entertainment district, the American Airlines Center, Dallas' museum and cultural districts. It's also less than 10 minutes from The Dallas Children's Hospital, UT Southwestern Medical School, Deep Ellum, Fair Park and the Cotton Bowl.

      The hotel grounds are beautifully landscaped and scrupulously well maintained. The rooms are done in mid-century modern style ... very spare and with a few pieces I recognized from Ikea; if you're expecting plush you'll be disappointed. They are spotlessly clean and completely renovated, but still sport (at least in my room) the original bathroom tile; it's all very well executed, but still sport a few chips and dings that have accumulated over 48 years of use. I think it added a ton of character and contributed greatly to the feel of the room, I'm sure others will see it as a sign of a budget restoration (it's not).

      As I've already mentioned, the location is somewhat challenged. There are no shopping, entertainment, or dining options within walking distance. You'll need to drive to find any of these, although they are apparently in the process of building a café on the premises. I also wasn't thrilled that the only parking option was valet or an unsecured self-park lot and their internet access is pay-per use.

      All-in-all a very good alternative for those not inclined towards the large "corporate" hotels and one star short of excellent only because of the lack of entertainment, shopping, and dining options in the immediate neighborhood.

      Fun retro ambiance!

      from

      This hotel is a fun mix of 50's style and post-modern styling. The grouds are beautifully kept, and it has a funky little bar that serves quality drinks. The staff is excellent, the location is great. The complementary breakfast is good (though not terribly substantial). The rooms are kind of artsy and may not appeal to a traveller expecting perfection (our bathroom was a wierd mix of blue, beige, and green tiles). My husband and loved the place and can't wait to go back.

      A treat!

      from

      I live in Dallas and hadn't even heard of this hotel before I stayed there - but what a treat!!! We stayed in the Terrace Suite and the view was the BEST IN DALLAS. The room was very comfortable, and the staff was extremely accomodating. The location was very convenient (by car/cab) to dining/nightlife. The surrounding area is not the best, but definitely improving - so don't let that deter you! I will recommend this hotel to all of my friends and colleagues.
