Probably the only thing better than staying in a hotel (free HBO! room service! no kids!) is staying in an ultra-luxurious suite in said hotel. From gilded hardware to chic glass staircases to sweeping views, here's some eye candy from the city's most gorgeous hotel suites.

JouleDallas

The Penthouse East Suite at The Joule

This sleek, contemporary penthouse has three stories--connected by glass staircases no less. The kitchen is equipped with Viking appliances, one of the two and a halfbathrooms has a rainfall shower and the rooftop terrace is the perfect spot to take in the views of Main Street. Hire your own chef for a private dinner and you’re in the lap of luxury, darling.

The Joule, 1530 Main St.; 214-748-1300 or thejouledallas.com. Rates average up to $10,000 a night.

Antonia

The Mary Kay Ash Suite at The Anatole

The space is everything you'd ever assume, given it's named after the iconic businesswoman/makeup maven: never understated, always a great value... and lots of pink, from the furniture to the blush dupioni silk curtains. You'll want to relax in the state-of-the-art marble bathroom as well as sip on that bottle of houseChampagne, which will be waiting for you upon arrival.

The Hilton Anatole, 2201 N. Stemmons Fwy.; 214-748-1200or hiltonanatolehotel.com. $1,500 a night

Zaza

The Raven Suite at Hotel Zaza

The 1,300 square-foot-room is an ode to late screenwriter Alfred Hitchcock. It’s full of oddities like minute black birds tucked discreetly into bookcases as well as dark lacquered furniture that brings a sense of mystery and eeriness.

Hotel Zaza, 2332 Leonard St.; 214-468-8399 or hotelzaza.com. Rates average $900/night.

Hospitality

The Hospitality Suite at Omni Dallas

The hotel's largest suite has panoramic views of the city (seriously, ones that rival Reunion Tower's vistas). You'll also get a private entrance, a 24-hour on-call butler (with unlimited pressing of sheets and clothes) and a bottle of the hotel’s featured wine, which will help you relax on your private balcony with Jacuzzi tub.

Omni Dallas, 555 S. Lamar St.; 214-979-4500 or omnihotels.com. Rates average $1,600 a night.

Crescent

The Grand Presidential Suite at The Crescent

Ladies, this one is over 3,000 square feet (the median home size in Dallas is 1,828 square feet). Your temporary residence has two bedrooms (with Rivolta Carmignani Italian linens), two bathrooms, a dining room that can easily host a small cocktail party and an abundance of floral arrangements--refreshed daily.

Rosewood Crescent Hotel, 400 Crescent Court; 214-871-3200 or rosewoodhotels.com. $1,500 a night.
