My stay in Dallas was for business, brought the family along for a nice weekend. My only regret with the hotel was the large wedding that took over the property. And I do mean took over! No matter where you went, there was a pre-wedding party going on. At one point I had enough was in the spa, all I wanted to do was relax in the whirlpool, but the bridal party was having an elegant luncheon right there! I would have felt like an idiot turning on the jets and sitting there while they dined and drank champagne at a formal table set up.
But to the hotel's credit the staff showed no signs of mental wear and tear. My little boy was cold from the a/c at breakfast, the hostess brought him a shawl. And the next morning the shawl was waiting for him to arrive! Everyone was so genuinely friendly.
When it was time to check out my little boy had a meltdown and would not leave the room. He insisted on staying "just two more days" as he put it. Nemiah came up to get our luggage and he was so very helpful in helping me change my son's mood! He took him around to all the staff and introduced him, and EVERYONE did their best to cheer him up!
The room was extremely clean, which is very important to me because of my dust allergy. Fearings is the only place you need to dine in Dallas! Muriel at Indulge makes the best coffee drinks! What was a stressful business trip for me ended up being quite blissful and friendly. I hated leaving too, I just didn't have a meltdown and refuse to leave the room!
I do think there should be a limit to how much of the hotel a wedding can take over. I was hoping to get club level but that just wasn't in the cards. I am planning a trip to the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island in the near future and suspect that since we could not get a suite or a club level room there is a huge wedding event. I know if I were to have a Ritz Carlton wedding I would want it large, but I wouldn't want to short change other guests either. I have a feeling though that the Amelia Island stay I will be taking a back seat to the wedding also.
The staff went above and beyond my expectations. Definately grace under pressure. I do look forward to another visit very soon.
