Four Dallas properties have made the exclusive Forbes Travel Guide this year, the 2024 Star Awards.

The annual list includes over 2,000 hotels, restaurants, spas, and ocean cruises. Each is categorized as either five-star, four-star, or recommended. All-in, the list includes:

  • 340 Five-Star, 600 Four-Star and 503 recommended hotels;
  • 78 Five-Star, 121 Four-Star and 59 recommended restaurants;
  • 126 Five-Star and 201 Four-Star spas; and
  • Seven Four-Star and five recommended cruise ships.

Big D made the cut with four restaurants, five hotels, and two spas.

The Forbes list continues the tradition of recognizing Dallas as a world-class city. Last month, The Dallas Express reported that eight local eateries made the semifinal list for the James Beard Award. The prestigious honor is granted to the best chefs, restaurateurs, authors, and journalists in the U.S. food scene.

In 2023, Travel + Leisure named five world-class hotels in Dallas-Fort Worth as part of its World’s Best Awards based on nearly 165,000 survey participants. Three properties, Rosewood Mansion, The Ritz-Carleton, and The Joule, made both the Travel + Leisure and Forbes lists.
