This is a huge hotel (an atrium and tower) with an extensive art collection (like a museum) that is well- suited for business and conference travelers. The staff are efficient and friendly. FYI: As a business oriented hotel -- many things are extra such as internet access in the room ( I believe public areas had free wifi although I never used it); and an expensive and fully stocked mini-refrigerator (do not move anything in it if you do not intend to purchase it b/c you will be charged for moving the item).
If you do not have a car, be aware that the hotel does not run a shuttle service and the hotel is not well-situated for walking to things (Note: do NOT take the light rail back to the hotel as this is nearly a mile walk back in non-sidewalk terrain). Cabs into Dallas run about 15-20 each way (Note: stay away from the black cars that the valet staff will try to steer you into as they are at least 5.00 more) .
The hotel does have a few restaurants that serve good, but pricey food (e.g. a burger is $15.00). There is a carry out coffee sandwich shop, Counter Offer, that you can buy pre-made sandwiches, but again this will not be inexpensive (e.g. I purchased an excellent shrimp rice noodle salad for $12.00).
A few last, random thoughts. We stayed in the atrium, but the noise was not a problem for us -- we only noticed the noise one evening and were able to fall asleep. The beds are very comfy. Also pack your bathing suit as the hotel has at least one indoor pool. And if you have time definitely walk around the hotel. The art work is amazing (they even have an art walk)! We saw part of the Berlin Wall (not too far from the Gossip bar) as well as many beautiful Asian pieces.
In short, if you know what to expect, you should have an enjoyable stay at the Hilton Anatole.
