Mixing neo-Gothic architecture with an extraordinary modern art collection, The Joule Dallas is an ultra-hip downtown property. Its central location on Main Street makes it perfect for shopping -- including a bookshop and designer boutiques on site. The hotel is just a two-minute walk to the flagship Neiman Marcus. Sights like the Dallas Museum of Art and the city’s Opera House are only a 15-minute stroll.

The rooftop pool (open March-October) has been described by Lonely Planet as "breathtaking" and stretches out over the street for astonishing city views. There is a neighboring trendy pool bar and a range of canopied day beds and hooded rattan armchairs for poolside pampering.

CBD is a contemporary Texas brasserie sprearheaded by executive chef Michael Sidoni. There’s also cozy lobby lounge with free tea on tap, a streetside coffee bar and a terrace for people watching. A new-in-2014 bar, Midnight Rambler serves craft cocktails; while the two-story ESPA and 24-hour fitness center underwent a $78-million expansion in 2013.

The standard rooms are petite but have zebra-print carpets, mirrored walls and circular beds, finished with red leather headboards. Upgraded rooms are larger (with standard-shaped beds), with deep soaking tubs in the bathrooms and locally sourced refreshments in the mini bar.
