What do you get when you check into a Virgin Hotel? Glitz and a bucket load of fun; the Dallas edition is easily one of the coolest hangouts in Texas. This Design District wonder is not only home to a trendy restaurant, the Commons Club, and the Funny Library Coffee Shop, but it also boasts a sexy fourth-floor rooftop pool and bar with views skyline views, including that of the Dallas Reunion Tower. Rooms and suites are design-forward and come with the latest in smart tech, from sensor lighting to wireless charging, and we can confirm the (free) WiFi is strong throughout the entire building (Work from the pool, anyone?). Pricing here is exceptionally fair (by Dallas standards), so do a suite and invite your pals for a SMEG-chilled drink on plush sofas, get ready together in the huge walk-in closet with a celebrity-style make-up dresser, or order champagne to the massive circular soaking tub (bath bubbles courtesy of Red Flower vegan wellness products). Hybrid beds with ergonomic headboards allow for a variety of seated positions and lounging, and pets can join you for free.
Mood? The perfect pre-night-out hangout (and next-day recuperation spot).
Location perks? In the heart of the Design District.
Budget range? Pricier but well worth it.
Time Out tip: Pack your swimwear and make the most of that rooftop pool.
