I just spent a couple of nights at the Dallas Marriott City Center. Checking in was quick and the desk staff (Johnathan, in particular) was very polite and friendly. My king room was more spacious than I expected, and the decor was modern and tasteful. There's a good mixture of wood and granite surfaces, a couple of shiny objects (lamps, mirrors), LED reading lights positioned on either side of the comfortable bed, granite tile floors and quartz (I think) vanity in the bathroom, a great Kohler shower-head (the same one I have at home), Bath and Body Works toiletries, good lighting in the bathroom, a 30+ inch LG flat screen with actual HD, and Starbucks coffee for brewing in the room. The work station also has AV, PC, and USB ports that I presume permit you to movies or whatever else from your computer or portable device directly to the TV. I thought that was a nice touch.
The fitness center is great for a hotel. It's large with a ton of good/modern cardio equipment, circuit machines, and sufficient free-weight and resistance band options. The lobby is also well decorated with lots of comfortable seating an free Wi-Fi. I had meetings at the Sheraton, and there is a sky bridge that takes you right into that hotel's conference facilities.
The general location of the hotel is not great. The neighborhood is fine and convenient to public transportation, but the dining in the immediate vicinity is limited. The concierge was most helpful in pointing out the few nearby dining options and offered to call ahead to various restaurants. It's about a 15 minute walk to Main Street's dining corridor with some good options, and the train takes you directly to the West End.
On a final note, the hotel is part of a mall/office complex. I had an interior room which lacks significant natural light, offers no fresh air, and looks out into the mall area and directly over into office windows. There is also full-on construction in the mall with bulldozers and jackhammers going throughout the day during the week. For those two reasons, I would definitely recommend requesting an exterior room. Overall, I was rather pleased with the Dallas Marriott and would return if I'm back in the area.
