I attended a meeting that was booked in the Renaissance Dallas Hotel. While the stay was lovely, I was dismayed at the mandatory valet parking - combination of $22/night plus waiting for the car & the staff that really wants an extra tip. The room was clean enought, although another person in our group had to wait a long time for her room to be made up. Luckily I picked up food at a little taco stand around the corner before a late night check in - all food on site is VERY overpriced. Little options for picking up a quick snack or light breakfast. The next morning, I got the car out & took a quick drive around the corner to a local Starbucks & got a much better breakfast than the $14 continental on site. While it is fine for business, I would not stay there on my own - over priced room cost, valet parking, etc. When our group was picked up for dinner at a downtown resteraunt, we had to walk through the construction zone to get to the bus lane as the drive way is too small to accomodate a bus. Picture doing this while dressed up & in high heels!
The property is very unique with the oval shaped building & very beautiful. The meeting rooms were well set up & the food served was well prepared & very good. Likely overpriced, though! Would be nice to have a small bistro onsite that could do reasonably priced snacks or meals.
