Somehow, your long-awaited pre-Super Bowl experience just isn’t working out the way you intended. For one thing, you’re freezing. Walkways outside Cowboys Stadium in Arlington are like sheets of ice, and you’re thinking you should have brought your ice skates instead of your golf clubs.

Well, it’s time to come in out of the cold, and make the best of the situation by visiting some oases of warmth and comfort in the greater Dallas area while waiting for the Big Game to begin.

The Four Seasons Resort Dallas at Las Colinas offers the ultimate in rest and relaxation–just the place to warm up those frostbitten fingers! The Four Seasons, surrounded by 400 rolling acres of North Texas hills in the suburb of Irving, is fresh from a $60 million expansion and enhancement, and contains all the amenities you could possibly require for unparalleled leisure–many of them indoors! Although you may not want to brave the outdoor pools, outdoor tennis courts, or golf course, you can still have fun in the full-sized fitness club and athletics center (offering racquetball, squash, half-court basketball and a variety of exercise classes). There’s an indoor heated lap pool, four indoor tennis courts, and a full-service spa with 16 treatment rooms. (Try the aromatherapy massage with a blend of citrus essential oils for the ultimate in pampering.) When you get back to your guest room or villa at the Four Seasons, snuggle up in one of the thick terry bathrobes hanging in the closet, and dream about spring.

Another good home base for exploring the Dallas area is the fairly new Holiday Inn Frisco/Stonebriar. Decorated with many furnishings from the nearby IKEA store, this hotel is ultra-modern and chic. The Holiday Inn Frisco/Stonebriar was originally built to be a “W” hotel, and it has an upscale, boutique “feel.” Check out the breathtaking chandelier in the lobby.
