From trendy mega cities like Dallas and Austin, which offer visitors plenty of entertainment, to more charming desert towns, Texas has something for everyone. If you’re traveling through America’s vast and warm Lone Star State, you should get a dose of some of that famous Texas friendliness and hospitality. Check out the following boutique hotels in Texas, so no matter where you decide to visit, you’ll have a great, relaxing getaway.

Stay at the The Westin Dallas Fort Worth Airport hotel to explore Dallas and position yourself right next to golf courses, college football games, and other great local sporting events. After all, what better way to experience Texas culture than through its sports?
