    The Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance of some of Dallas’ best restaurants and shops and less than a block from the trolley system that serves Uptown and downtown Dallas. Uptown is a unique neighborhood that combines the modern conveniences of urban life with the historical charm of the 1920s. Whether you are traveling to Dallas for business or pleasure you will find that the inn offers comfort, privacy and friendly service.

    Antique filled rooms come complete with a private bath, a comfortable sitting area, a desk, high speed 802.11b Wi-Fi wireless Internet service for your laptop (or use a phone jack for your own dialup service) and Direct TV. Gone are the times when staying at a B&B meant sharing a bath and visiting with a meddlesome host. B&Bs have wised up to the needs of business travelers while maintaining a homey atmosphere that most hotels lack.

    Nearby attractions to the Dallas bed and breakfast include: JFK 6th Floor Museum at Dealy Plaza, Dallas World Aquarium, Dallas Museum of Art, West Village (shopping and dining center), Dallas Symphony Center, American Airlines Center and the Majestic Theater. Three spas are within walking distance.

  • Insider's Info

    Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Andrea Hundley for sharing her own secrets with BBOnline.com!
    Why do most travelers stay at your inn?

    Most people want to get away in Uptown Dallas for a weekend.  It is really the only neighborhood in Dallas where you can walk to everything from museums to restaurants, bars, shopping and even theater. There is a free trolley that goes through Uptown.  Most of the hotels in the area are VERY pricey, so we are a great deal.  

    What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?

    I'm known for my rooms being very large, modern (not really a frilly style) and clean.  I'm unique because there are no B&B's in Uptown Dallas and it's a great getaway in town.  

    If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?

    We have amazing restaurants and shopping. Also Uptown Dallas has a really great urban feel that you don't expect in Texas. 

    What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?

    The best compliment is "feels like home".  

    What’s the best kept secret about the area?

    Bailey's Uptown Inn - I have people all the time say that they are in Uptown frequently but they didn't know I existed.  The other hotels are places like the Ritz, the Crescent Court, really big expensive hotels.  

    If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?

    With four nights I recommend hitting these sites:  New Perot Science Museum, Nasher Sculpture Garden, Dallas Museum of Art, Klyde Warren Park, the Kennedy Museum (the 6th floor Museum), and the Dallas World Aquarium.  If they have a car I would add the new George W. Bush Library which is really more of a museum with an incredible exhibit about 911. 

    Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?

    In Uptown you can walk to dozens of restaurants, bars, museums, theater, shopping and there is a free trolley that runs through the neighborhood.  There's also a Food Tour of Uptown.  

    What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?

    It's hard to narrow it down but I really like Avanti, which is Italian and has been just down the street since we opened.  I also love Si Tapas which is in an old house two blocks away.  

    Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference?

    http://www.visitdallas.com/  and as always TripAdvisor.com

    How many rooms does your inn have?

    Most of the time we have 5 rooms open.  

    Do you accept pets?

    We don't allow pets but there is a pet hotel not far away, The Dog Lofts.
