Yee-haw! This is a rare Western-themed lodging in the thoroughly urbanized DFW area. The recently renovated Stockyards is the 52-room successor to the original 1907 hotel at the corner of Main and Exchange in the heart of the historic Stockyards District. The four nominally Western room styles—Victorian, Western, Native American, and Mountain Man—differ only in a bit of superficial decor (there's no shortage of cowhide and cow skulls here). For more authenticity, you have to go to the bargain-priced suites: The Celebrity has hosted a long list of country-western stars, from Tanya Tucker to Willie Nelson. The Clyde Barrow Suite is reputed to be the actual room where the folk-hero bank robber stayed in 1932—and you get to share it with his girlfriend Bonnie Parker's framed .38 revolver.
