In need of a staycation, stat? Might we suggest Vegas, Dallas, New Orleans, Austin, nah Irving, Texas! 

Irving is the perfect spot to go for a fantastic vacay, baecay, staycay, lovecay (you get the point) with plenty of diverse dining, an assortment of live music, poolside retreats, and a walkable entertainment district. 

We've rounded up all the deals around town to help you find the best hotels to match your personality. Now is the time to get out of dodge for a few days and kick up your feet. How do you like to STAYcay? 

Be one of the first to experience the reimagined Omni Las Colinas Hotel located in the heart of Las Colinas. Originally built in 1982 as a Four Seasons, the hotel has  recently undergone a major renovation. And renovation is an understatement. All of the public spaces have been modernized including the lobby, courtyard, bars and restaurants on the property. And the brand new resort-style pool will be unveiled in mid-July. With each upgrade, the already luxe space has found a higher tier of luxury. 

The Westin at the Irving Convention Center is the newest hotel in close proximity to Irving's Entertainment District, which houses fabulous recreation, dining, and of course concerts. This makes it a prime location, plus a destination to keep you entertained and coming back for more. Staycationing in Irving is so ideal, it offers so many great hotels and many fun attractions. I can't wait to tell you all about our stay at the beautiful Westin in Las Colinas.  

If there is ever a time we deserve some fun in the sun, pampering, and rest and relaxation, 2020 is the year, summer is the time, and the Four Seasons Resort at Las Colinas is the place. Why travel far during a pandemic when you can vacation in your own backyard? Located conveniently just between Dallas and Fort Worth in Irving, this property is truly an urban oasis. Secluded gardens, fantastic pools, romantic settings, luxurious spa treatments, exclusive golf, exquisite dining—you can find everything you need without leaving the sprawling grounds.
