The Stay: The Belmont Hotel
This summer when I went to Dallas, I got a recommendation to stay at the Belmont Hotel and I couldn’t be happier about that. The hotel itself is perfectly nice. With clean rooms, chill bar vibes and a general laid-back atmosphere, it’s a bit of Austin (from what I understand) plopped down in Dallas.
For me though, it was really about the photogenic nature of the place. The Belmont sits on top of a hill and overlooks the Dallas skyline. And even though I only got a few images in passing, the place reveals so many different moods. There’s muggy warm mornings, humid night sky sunsets and soft light that makes shooting against the natural landscaping particularly nice.
It's enough to feel like you're walking through a Cormac McCarthy novel. Throw in a solid restaurant nextdoor and a pool that overlooks the city, and you’ve got the makings for the perfect spot to down a beer at sunset, snap an Instagram, and plan your return.
