I was in Dallas on business and attended a conference in this hotel for two nights/three days. I like modern design and amenities, and this hotel did not disappoint. Despite the feeling of grandeur, this hotel still felt comfortable and welcoming. The lounge area had the old charm of a well-preserved library or parlor, however, it felt welcoming and invited you to come on in, kick up your feet, and enjoy the view. And what a view it was! It overlooked a gorgeous golf course. I thought if I had more time, I'd definitely get out there and play nine rounds; but if not, I will stay here when I'm in the area again and build in an extra day just to enjoy it. There was a stunning table in the hall that reminded me of reclaimed wood that had been modernized and beautifully restored. I walked passed and had to come back for a second more detailed look. Details of beauty were everywhere. I especially loved and appreciated how the modern was combined with the classic of old world charm.
The food was impeccable and portion sizes were filling. If I could learn to make my polenta and steak like they do, I'd actually make them at home. The creme' brulee' was the best I'd had, and I've lived in Europe before. I really like the chocolate mousse because it was highly flavored without being overpowering or too rich; and everyone at our 10 person table agreed.
The staff was equally as impressive, from the reception desk, to the bellhop, to the wait staff, to management. Everyone greeted you with a smile and a warm offering of "how's your stay, is there anything I can do for you." Everyone made you feel welcomed and respected. It was apparent that I was important to them, even when I came down in sweats and crazy-looking hair to take the shuttle to the mall--I received the same professional courtesy and respect. Surprisingly, the young man in the coffee shop also made me feel like we were old friends. He even gave me a little education as we talked coffee. That was a testament to the detail this hotel showed.
My room and bathroom were larger than normal. The color scheme was soothing and along with the high quality white bedding, made for a restful evening. The room had a comfortable white leather chair with a footstool, desk with a comfortable black leather chair, a huge TV over a beautiful chest of drawers with a granite top. One side of the chest had drawers, and the other a fridge and safe. There were beautiful sheer curtains in front of the room-darkening ones. I also loved the bathroom with its matching granite counters and extra wall storage. It was a great place to store your toiletries and other bathroom items without hogging up the counter. The rainfall shower head was a delight to wake up to in the morning, and the shower curtain bar was a heavy duty half circle that gave ample room, making the shower feel proportionally as large as the bathroom. The closet was also a great size.
There was a free shuttle to the mall and restaurants. I used it twice to go to both locations and was pleased with the drivers and their professionalism. They even gave me a free bottle of spring water while I waited. The fitness center also is top-notch.
I would definitely stay here again.
