Alla's Historical B&B (415 Hustead Street, Duncanville). Cozy Cabin (Venus, TX). Downtown Dwelling (Downtown Dallas). Hotel ZaZa (2332 Leonard Street, Dallas).
Alla's is a perfect example of a classic B&B. Located in Duncanville, it's billed as a “guest house in a museum” due to the historical status of the house. Fortunately, they've made updates that include Wi-Fi and a private cabana with a hot tub and spa. Start the day by waking up to a massive organic European breakfast, whatever that means, and spend your time lounging or walking to the nearby shops in town.
Forget all the horror movies you've seen and head out to a cabin one weekend. There's truly nothing more relaxing than being in the middle of nowhere without things like Wi-Fi to disturb you. You can enjoy the outdoors, read that book you keep ignoring, or simply spend some quality time with that special someone without the TV blaring in the background. Airbnb has some great cabin options throughout Texas, with this one within an hour's drive here — and can accommodate four guests for just $55 per night.
Stuck in the suburbs? Take a weekend to play city dweller by renting out a condo and living the high life in a luxury high rise? Make it a treat yo self trip and hit up the happy hours and restaurants you usually avoid. During the day, lay by the pool and lap up the sunshine or lounge around the apartment like it's yours — for just $155 it can be, for a day, anyway.
Chances are you've heard of Hotel ZaZa but never gotten the chance to stay there. Well, seize the moment and book a room, it's time to go. Hotel ZaZa is the perfect place for a sexy splurge of a staycation with their themed rooms, garden terraces, spa and pool, all complete with a trendy bar that'll keep you coming back for more.
