If you judge your hotel by its TripAdvisor rankings, then the best place to stay in Dallas, Texas is the Palomar Hotel from the Kimpton Hotel group. It's a boutique hotel plus residences that was formerly the Mockingbird Hilton, and we've already drawn parallels between the Palomar and the W Dallas.

Some of the pluses, as told by recent guests to the Palomar, include wine tasting with other guests, great staff, huge televisions and even a quick response time if you need a razor to shave your legs! They're also welcoming to your pets.

Yet since some of the guest reviews also likened the Palomar to a W property, we were surprised to find the W Dallas listed all the way down at #49 on the TripAdvisor rankings. Some of the problems here were guests didn't like the bathroom being so closely combined into the bedroom, below-average service for an above-average price, and a location that's not entirely convenient. Seems like the Palomar is out-W-ing the W!
