As the start of the new school year concludes our sweet summer holiday, let’s have a last hurrah before we officially step into fall! Here is how you can make the most of the upcoming Labor Day weekend by vacationing, or should we say staycationing, within the Irving city limits.
Featuring a vibrant courtyard and authentic Americana décor, Texican Court is a boutique hotel that embodies classic Western charm with a modern twist. Savor delicious Tex-Mex at Two Mules Cantina and for a limited time, you can enjoy alcohol-infused frozen popsicles by the outdoor pool! Feeling adventurous? Ride the complimentary hotel bikes to nearby attractions like Mustangs of Las Colinas and Lake Carolyn.
NYLO Las Colinas
Combining posh, loft-style design with edgy, industrial elements, NYLO Las Colinas offers a staycation experience like no other. Each room features an open layout with larger-than-life windows and exposed bricks. Shoot some pool in the common area, grab a bite at The LOFT kitchen and bar, or lounge by the outdoor heated pools—all within a property that is surrounded by restaurants, beauty parlors, and shopping.
Westin Irving Convention Center
Conveniently situated within the city’s Las Colinas Entertainment District, the Westin Irving Convention Center hotel is where business meets pleasure. The new, sophisticated hotel features a live, vertical garden and an outdoor pool with a stunning Las Colinas view. Feast on fine Mexican fare at Mesa Mezcal, stop by Craft Coffeeshop for a quick caffeine fix, or take a little walk to Toyota Music Factory for a movie, live music, and casual dining.
Jefferson Street Bed & Breakfast Inn
Looking for more of a quaint staycation experience? Look no further than this Texas ranch-style bed and breakfast located in the Heritage District of Irving. Jefferson Street Bed & Breakfast Inn is a charming boutique hotel that offers great amenities within close proximity to local gems like the nostalgic diner, Big State Fountain Grill, and the serene Centennial Park.
Omni Mandalay Las Colinas
Nestled at the heart of Lake Carolyn, Omni Mandalay offers a tranquil experience with an urban feel. Get pampered at the hotel’s Mokara Salon & Spa, explore the Mandalay Canal on a Venetian gondola, or simply soak in the calming waterfront view on foot. While you’re at it, swing by Water Street to savor unique dishes like street tacos at El Famoso, gourmet pizzas at Olivella’s, and nitrogen ice cream at Creamistry.
