3 friends (in our 30s) are looking for a place to spend a relaxing weekend in September or October close to the DFW area. Our last two trips were to a Marriott near the River Walk in San Antonio and Horseshoe Bay Marriott. We are looking for a nice room with lots of space, a pool area that is great for lounging with a book and a margarita with a nice hot tub, a variety of dining choices, and somewhere to have adult beverages and chat for hours, and maybe a spa treatment or two.
We want it to be far enough away so that the friend who lives in Arlington feels like she is getting away, too, but we don't want to drive so far that we might as well have just stayed in Austin. We will gamble if gambling is there, but it won't be the main point of the trip. We just want to leave the kids and husbands and jobs behind for a couple of days and recharge and come back refreshed.
Here are the places on my list:
The Hilton Resort in Rockwall
The Gaylord Texan
Chocktaw Casino in Durant
I looked at the Rough Creek Lodge and I think it might be a little more sporty and pricey and less relaxy than we are looking for. ;)
Any thoughts on the 4 places on my list? Any places we should add to the list?
