All you need to know about Dallas

Dallas is a city in the large state of Texas. Despite being only the third largest city in Texas, behind Houston and San Antonio, Dallas is the ninth largest in the United States with a population of 1.3 million. Dallas, or Big D as it is known, was originally constructed as a major bypass to allow the transportation of cotton, cattle and oil from North and East Texas across the United States. The city became a significant transportation hub following the development of the Interstate Highway System. Dallas has since developed as a strong industrial and financial centre, due to its location, and is visited by countless business travellers, many of which utilise the excellent array of serviced apartments in Dallas. The world famous Dallas Cowboys originate from the city and play their NFL home games at the AT&T Stadium.

Today, the local economy is focused around financial services, IT, telecommunications and transportation. Dallas has become established as a destination for business travellers from across the United States and abroad. This growth in demand for business travel has seen a rise in demand for business accommodation. Our corporate housing in Dallas is crafted with the business traveller in mind.
