The Luxury: Madonna’s cone bra, walking mannequins, and more than 120 haute couture creations take their rightful place among more than 240,000 masterpieces at Dallas’ Museum of Art this November, when the traveling Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit lands at the museum – one of only two U.S. cities to claim the showcase, dubbed “Sidewalk to the Catwalk.” To celebrate, The Joule Hotel in downtown Dallas unleashed an exclusive package that bundles museum tickets, cocktails, and other goodies into the price. Rest assured that the property itself is as fashion-forward as the exhibit: The custom-designed suites and guestrooms are each bedecked with local call-outs, such as original photographs of Dallas and Fort Worth by Bram Tihany and a direct dial on each phone to the Neiman Marcus flagship store a few doors down.
The Value: Like accessories to an outfit, it’s the add-ons that make this package a do. In addition to overnight accommodations, travelers who book this deal score two tickets to the exhibit, two cocktails in Charlie Palmer @ The Joule, a $100 gift certificate to Neiman-Marcus’ Ceron Spa, a personal shopper at Neiman-Marcus, and 10 percent off at the Museum Store and Museum Atrium Café. Rates start at $389 per night.
The Catch: The exhibit – and therefore the package – runs November 13 through February 13, so plan accordingly.
