“Excellent hotel - not much within walking distance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Came to Dallas on a conference. Hotel is very nice - rooms nicely decorated and facilities in excellent condition. Excellent workout area - bring your gear. The room is huge and quite a bit of cardio and weight equipment. Food is pricey but everything we had was very good - fruit was awesome! Outdoor pool area is nice. Not much within walking distance of the hotel. A dozen or so restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Shopping is very limited within walking distance. But, the hotel is right by train stations if you want to go further - I didn't do that. Didn't have any issues with check in as others stated - it wasn't spectacular but wasn't bad either.

my experience came from attending a large conference over the weekend. I found the quality of the guest room to be less than expected, the sheets did not even fit the bed. The internet does not allow for multiple devices except if you want to pay $15 per device per day. Their solution is to go the the lobby where it is free. The restaurant was pricey, a salad w/chicken cost $25 and the breakfast wait staff was more interested in selling the buffet rather than take an ala carte order. The rate was $200 far more expensive than its worth. I wont be back anytime soon.

I was in Dallas attending a business conference. The hotel did a great job accommodating all of us. The hotel is huge, so allow time to get from point A to point B. The room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. There was only 1 person working the front desk when I arrived, so check in was slow - many of the other conference attendees arrived at the same time. The hotel is attached to a neighboring Marriott via a skybridge. This was helpful as I went over to the Marriott for lunch after I arrived, as they had a food court with more dining options than the Sheraton. The Sheraton is a good option if you are looking for a clean, comfortable hotel with not a lot of frills.

I recently stayed at this hotel on a whim return to Dallas.The hotel was very busy as others have stated due to a big college football game. We had to self park and jet lagged with heavy luggage and a long walk with luggage, this was not the best start. Check in was quite quick altough there were long queues. Our room was a junior suite and very badly laid out. There was a lot of wasted space, I think a bit more thought needs to go into the design. The whole room was very bland. However it was all clean, there were sufficient hangers and plenty of drawers. The room was super quiet and a very comfortable bed. The hotel is well situated near a tram stop, which is useful for getting in and out of the restaurant area. Concierges recommendations for restaurants all good. We used both bars, the service in the lounge bar was a bit slow.Not a bad stay but lacks the wow factor one expects from a junior suite at a Starwood hotel.

Room Tip: we were on a high floor and it was very quiet.

First impressions were not good, valet parking full & the self parking crammed with people (many already celebrating) in town for the Texas vs Oklahoma football game. There was a long queue for check in but the Starwood preferred guest line was very short.

Actually, the hotel coped well with the influx of people, and although it was very busy it didn't really affect our stay.

The hotel is very well situated next to the tram station, so getting around is cheap & easy, it is also an easy walk to the museums area.

The room (junior suite) was large, but badly laid out, the furnishings were ok, but not much more than that.

The club lounge was pleasant, but breakfast finished at 9am seven days a week, which seems very early.

I was double charged for valet & self parking, which was sorted out on check out, but the next day I received an amended bill & it had been put back on again - not impressed!

We stayed at the Sheraton on our trip to the State Fair of Texas. Unfortunately, it was also the weekend of the Texas-OU football game. This made parking and check in a nightmare. The parking garage is huge and located across the street. It was a long walk with kids and luggage to get from the car to the hotel. Parking is also $21 a night for self-park, which seemed high even for a downtown hotel. The hotel seemed to also be completely overwhelmed by the drunk and obnoxious students that arrived for the football game. Obviously the Sheraton has hosted this crowd before (since the game has been played in Dallas for several years), so it was disappointing that they weren't prepared. It took us over an hour to check in and I had two tired and hungry girls (and one tired, hungry, and angry mommy) that had to sit on a bench outside the restrooms and wait during this time. Once we actually checked into our suite, things got a lot better. The suite was great and, despite all the rowdy football fans in the hotel, was very quiet. The hotel was bid enough (and the staff presumably smart enough) to contain the students in the central tower as we didn't hear anything from inside the suite. The beds were also extremely comfortable, although there were no extra sheets for the sofa bed and no chance of getting any extra. It was also disappointing that Internet access was so expensive and the TV channel lineup included no options for small kids (e.g. Disney Channel). However, after the initial problems with check in, the overall experience was mostly positive with the Sheraton. i also need to point out the great service from the concierge staff (Dan and Amanda). I needed to feed the family and the restaurants in the hotel (indeed the entire downtown area) were packed. Room service was not even picking up the phone. The staff worked hard to finally locate a local restaurant that was able to make us a meal for me to walk and pick up.

Sheraton Front Desk Specialist, Jeanette McGanis, was awesome and help set the tone for a rewarding weekend. She greeted us with a smile, she asked all the necessary questions to ensure our stay would be comfortable and relaxing, and she was a great problem solver, in addition to patiently addressing all our questions. She is a good representaitive of the Starwood Brand. Thank You Jeanette, for helping my Dallas weekend Rock!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Interstate 35 in the South Tower- and beware this property is huge
