Whatever your reason to visit Dallas, finding accommodation in the downtown area is highly recommended, and this applies particularly to those staying only for a few days who want to make the most of their trip by visiting its main landmarks. Some may travel for business, others as tourists, or perhaps including Texas as one of their stops along the way on a USA road trip, but all travellers share common goals while in the city: roam the Dallas Arts District and the West End Historic District, immerse themselves in the history of the state and the country at the President Kennedy Memorial, be delighted with the spectacular city views seen from the Continental Avenue Bridge, feel glamorous in Highland Park, take a stroll along the Hall Texas Sculpture Walk and attend a sports event or concert at the American Airlines Center. By finding a place to stay in this central area, you will ensure that all the aforementioned are within reach either on foot or by taking a short commute.
Provided that you arrive by air, transferring from Dallas Fort Worth International airport to the city centre will be easy thanks to the 408 shuttle buses connecting terminal buildings A, B and C with the airport railway station and Dallas downtown, as well as to the orange line of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system, which runs its services from all airport terminals towards the city between 4 am and 1 am daily. Covering this distance by using public transportation costs as little as 2,5 US dollars one-way, even though arriving passengers may also opt for hiring a car or booking a shared van ride.
