We're all itching for some holiday cheer and the sooner it gets here, the better. And while big holiday travel plans might not be store for most, perhaps a staycation a few miles from home or a short road trip is in store for your December plans. These Dallas hotels are just a few that are providing some seasonal magic – check them out!


Holiday Tea at The Adolphus

One of Dallas' most beloved holiday traditions is back. The hotel transforms into a holiday oasis and invites you to a holiday tea party inside The French Room, the hotel's fine dining restaurant and one of the most prestigious in the city. The coveted event is by reservation only, and the three-course menu features delectable finger sandwiches, scones and sweets paired with teas and bubbles. Holiday Tea is available through Jan. 2, 2021.


Christmas at the Anatole

The Christmas at the Anatole experience offers a host of hotel magic in Dallas. The Hilton Anatole Dallas will be offering a "Breakfast with Santa Suite Package" that comes complete with a Santa-themed suite decked out in holiday decor, along with a private meet-and-greet event with Kris Kringle himself and one of his (live) reindeers. Other fun activities include movie nights and a dancing Christmas tree on stilts.


In-room trees at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek

For a truly luxurious holiday vacation, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek is a must-visit. The hotel was recently named the #1 hotel in Texas and #32 in the world by the 2020 Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards. The Mansion has launched unique services and partnerships ideal for a thoughtful Christmas gift such as custom designed, handcrafted cowboy boots by bespoke boutique Miron Crosby and unprecedented services from Dallas' prestigious retail magnate Neiman Marcus. Guests may also request a fully decorated Christmas tree for their room, and even mail or bring their own ornaments and decorations to add themselves.


CHEER! at The Joule

The holidays take an artistic twist at CHEER!, the Joule's new experiential installation. It features the works of four local artists who've taken a contemporary approach to holiday staples like ribbons, wrapping papers and lights. The festivities (and photo ops) are now open in a gallery space next door to the Hotel Shop at The Joule. Pro tip: Mention CHEER! as you make a hotel reservation for a special rate on your night's stay. CHEER! is on view through Jan. 2, 2021.
