I spent three nights at the Warwick Dallas Hotel last week, and was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is located on the outskirts of downtown, smack dab in the middle of the “gayborhood”. The hotel is old in an elegant and not tired way. I had a king bedded corner room, which was quite large. It was a bit dark, but mostly because the heat outdoors was so severe that the curtains were left closed most of the time to keep things cool. The bed was extremely comfortable, and bathroom, while somewhat dated, was clean.
Check-in was fairly uneventful, and while the agent was not particularly friendly, she wasn’t discourteous either. The hotel has valet parking which, for the area, seems overpriced. However, it was more economical for me to take a taxi to and from the airport @ 50.00 each way when staying four days, rather than pay for the rental car and parking. The hotel does offer free transportation within a 3 mile radius of the property, but I chose to walk. There is also ample street parking literally right behind the hotel on the side streets.
After I checked in, II found all of the employees to be very friendly and helpful. The property does not have a swimming pool, which during my hot summer stay was missed, but this is certainly not a deal breaker. There is a health club diagonally across the street, also with no pool, but is available for a modest charge to hotel guests. ($10.00) The front desk actually gave me a card for one day free admission when I asked for directions.
The bar is quite nice, and has entertainment performing most nights. I had breakfast in the dining room twice, and it seems to be comparable or perhaps a bit less expensive than other big city hotels. Coffee was available for free in the lobby, or for $4.00 in the restaurant. The service was good and prompt.
There are Sushi, Mexican and Italian food restaurants ½ a block away, and many clubs and bars on the side street if that is your fancy. The neighborhood appeared to be safe, though far from the downtown activities. The hotel is very close to the Mansion at Turtle Creek, which makes it a very economical alternative to staying at that high end property.
My one negative about the hotel was that they failed to provide me with my requested wake up call, and when I inquired, I was advised that “my room number was crossed off”. Well, that is fine, but nobody called my room to wake me up. Fortunately, it was not disastrous.
