When I looked into things to see and do in Dallas, only one stood out - The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, this being the location of the former Texas School Book Depository where Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly shot the magic bullet that killed John F Kennedy on November 22, 1963.
The hotel shuttle took me into town to the museum. As we …
I'm not entirely sure what Nick does for work but he was gone very early again this morning, assuming he'd been there at all so I passed on my gratitude and fond farewells via post-it note before heading back to the airport in the same way I'd left it - in the rain.
After another ordeal with American Airlines which did not get me a window …
... letting it be". How can we expect true evil to ever cease, if we as a collective race can't even live in tranquility. Why cant we just be happy for the success of our peers , and show empathy for the loses instead of jealousy for success and a morbid sneer to those who fall? Are we really that self centered and competitive now? I believe in healthy competition and finding your way on an individual basis.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
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
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!
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 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
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.
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
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...
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.

What an amazingly cool hotel!!!
Fun retro ambiance!
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.
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.
