Concierge.com's insider take:
Whimsical postmodern style and a lively party atmosphere combine with fastidious service and high-end attention to detail to make this 152-room boutique hotel in the heart of trendy Uptown Dallas's hippest place to stay. The who-says-irony-is-dead decor includes concept suites ranging from the beanbag chairs and purple shag carpet in the Shag-a-delic Suite to the Venetian-style Dangerous Beauty. Frisky guests will be happy to find a "Shag Bag" (condoms, lube, and other shagging needs) in all rooms. The Dragonfly restaurant and lounge offer high-concept Asian-Mediterranean dining and a see-and-be-seen bar scene that spills into the Urban Oasis pool area during the warm months. (Hotel guests get to jump the velvet-rope line into the Dragonfly, which is quite the score on weekends.) Rooms are outfitted with Euro-contemporary desks and high-speed Internet for business travelers; however, early risers can be kept awake by the late-night frivolity. Book well in advance.
