You can feel the history here before you even walk in the door. The valet staff is fast and courteous and eager to help. They unloaded all of our things onto a cart and handed it off to be taken to our room. Front desk staff was perfect, friendly and helpful. They checked us in quickly and easily and sent us to our room.
The rooms are somewhat underwhelming for the price, with stained chairs and dated decor (and not in the good, Victorian sense that you'd expect). While there was an honor bar fully stocked, there was no microwave or fridge available for any leftovers or beverages of your own which is a brilliant marketing move for their on-site restaurants and room service, I suppose. I just felt that for the price this should be offered.
The beds are amazingly comfortable albeit unstable due to the cheap frames on which they sit. There was a lot of wobbling! The sheets were luxe and clean.
The bathroom was nice but nothing spectacular although the rain-shower type shower head was a nice touch. The complimentary toiletries are great quality and didn't leave my skin or hair feeling dried out as they often do.
The closet is HUGE and is a waste of space. You could have half the space for the closet and that would be more than adequate.
I ordered room service on the morning of our departure - huevos rancheros - and I am still craving them. The room service set up is very nice - they bring a standard sized table to your room and set it all up for you. That was a nice touch. Staff was again very friendly.
All in all, it's worth the money to stay in such an upscale, historic hotel in the heart of downtown Dallas. I enjoyed our trip immensely and look forward to staying here again in the future.
