We had stayed at the Omni Dallas Hotel near the Convention Center the last several times while vacationing in Dallas. The rates during spring break were higher than what we had paid in the past so we decided to try the Renaissance. The Renaissance had a great deal called Family Movie Night where you get breakfast daily for 2 adults and 2 kids plus a large pizza, four sodas and a free in room movie -- all for $139 per night. Plus there was no garage parking fee that the Omni charges, so the saving was substantial.
Check in was quick and it was easy to find a free parking spot -- at least during the day ... took a few circles around the parking lot one night but did not have to use valet -- which they charge $22 per night.
The room was large and clean. Two double beds with a sectional sofa that was also a pull out bed. Also had a desk and mini fridge. Room number was 2410 and had good view of the Dallas skyline. It was quiet and beds were comfortable, although pillows are rather flat and smallish.
There were plenty of towels and they were high quality. There are two sinks ... one outside of the bathroom so that was nice. You can still brush your teeth/etc while the bathroom is in use by another person.
The breakfast buffet was not as good as the Omni though. The free large pizza and room service was fine and uneventful. We also tried the home made cookies for the kids ... they were alright ... not as good as Omni's choc. chip cookies. Didn't try dinner at the hotel.
Only minor complaint is that the breakfast plan forces you to only get the buffet. The buffet costs $19, which was more expensive than any other item on the breakfast menu. Why not let me choose pancakes or whatever else on the menu instead of the buffet? The website did NOT say that you had to get buffet ... it just said free breakfast for 2 adults and 2 kids daily. Oh well ... there were good selections on the buffet and you can custom order an omelet.
Overall I thought it was an excellent hotel, right off I-35 and easier to get to than the Omni. Parking lot was easier to navigate than the convention center parking garage as well. I'm glad I tried the Renaissance hotel and will definitely consider another stay here on my next Dallas trip.
