Let me start by saying that a part of me will always call Texas home. I was born there. I grew up there. In Texas, I learned how to drive. Had my first broken heart. Fought with my parents. Learned from my parents. Remember my first victory. And what I thought was my greatest defeat. I graduated high school. And, I was saved there. Whether or not we move back there one day, I will always call The Lone Star State home.
So with that being said, I love to be able to go home and visit as often as possible. Both of my parents are still there so heading to Dallas, even if just for a weekend, is one of my favorite things to do. And while we try to go back and see my parents as often as possible, I also have some great friends there now thanks to social media. You all have met Chandler before, (New Orleans, Charleston, California…) and after just missing her in Auburn, she moved to the big D. Sadly, we did not share time in Auburn, but THANKFULLY we connected afterwards because I cannot imagine life without her.
Now…that brings me to this post. After that little bit of background, you can probably tell that I am super excited to share our stay-cation at The Texican Court Hotel in Irving, TX. Chandler actually found this adorable little spot and sent it to me on Instagram. I fell in love immediately and within three days, we had a girls weekend planned.
First, let me start by saying…”HOW CUTE IS THIS PLACE?!?” Nestled comfortably in Irving, TX, the Texican Court is a dream. Relatively new (it opened Fall 2018), this cute little hotel gives me both, Palm Springs and Marfa, Texas vibes. From the pink doors to the tile in each bathroom, the details of this hotel are on another level.
All of the decor was beautiful and as I was saying before, designed down to every little detail. We had joining rooms for our stay, one of which was a suite. Equipped with a living area, dining area, bedroom and bath, I could have stayed there all weekend! And one of my favorite things about the room…the orange refrigerator! Each room has their very own SMEG refrigerator that is fully stocked with all you could ask for and it was PERFECT.
To be honest though, it was not just the room that had my heart. From the moment I walked in to the hotel I was in love with their aesthetic. The lobby is so open and welcoming (and equipped with a pink SMEG fridge) and the tequila bar sits right across the way, where the margaritas are waiting.
You all know I love me some pink details so the pool naturally caught my eye. It was actually pretty cold while we were there (yes I sacrificed for the pool pictures) but I can see myself lounging by their pool every time I come home this summer!
The Texican Court is located in Irving, TX (Las Colinas if you will) and, in my opinion, is a great location. You can easily get to downtown or uptown, while still being close to DFW airport. I actually grew up about five minutes from the Texican Court so it truly felt like I was home! This cute little spot sits right across the street from the convention center and Toyota Music Factory, where there is food, bars and live music! Just walk across the street to find some entertainment.
If you are like me though, you will not want to leave the hotel, which is okay…there are two GREAT bars! At the entrance of the Texican Court, you can find their smaller tequila bar, or walk over to the Two Mules restaurant and listen to the live music. And while you’re there, a piece of advice…order the “Diablo Margarita.” I promise you will not be disappointed!
After an amazing girls weekend, I am counting down the days until I can return to the Texican Court Hotel. If you are looking for a getaway to Dallas, or even just a low-key stay-cation, this hotel is perfect. I absolutely love that Irving, TX has welcomed this adorable spot into the area because it has a “cool factor” like no other. I mean for real, it is every blogger’s dream! And while I can see myself there taking pictures often, I am already planning my next trip back just to lay by the pool…and RELAX!
