My wife and I checked into the Four Seasons Las Colinas for a 1-night relaxation mini-vacation. We had booked a Villa bedroom, and were upgraded on arrival to a Villa Suite (thank you, AMEX Fine Hotels program!). After a quick golf cart ride, we were wowed by the space and light, open feel of the suite. 3 different porches (this came in handy when we had a room service breakfast the next morning and were able to pick the south-facing porch instead of either of the 2 east facing porches). Deep soaking tub, marble shower, marble flooring and new (or at least well-kept) carpet, powder bath, sofa and chairs, really big flat-screen TV, and a dining table. All the luxuries of home but better because you're on vacation! Bed linens were very nice, bed was comfortable, and the room was among the nicest we've ever had - just very, very easy to relax in. (For frame of reference, we do travel several times each year and are usually fortunate enough to stay in nice resorts.)
The spa was quite nice, with sauna, steam, jacuzzi/hot tub, cold plunge, 3 showers, a quiet room, a private spa pool (in addition to the huge pool complex for hotel guests), an adequate number of lockers, 1 or 2 attendants on duty at all times, etc. My 80-minute swedish massage was good, and my wife raved about her 80-minute aromatherapy massage. So high marks for the spa.
Food was overall very good. A slight mixup happened when I had booked a champagne tea at my wife's request (not so much my thing, but hey, this getaway was about her). When we got to the table, they had set up the regular (read: lesser) tea menu, so none of the promised canapes with caviar or goat cheese. They were happy to pour us some champagne after I pointed it out, but they couldn't do much about the menu. Oh well - not a huge deal, just a slight disappointment. Dinner that evening was overall very good. It's a nice resort atmosphere - definitely not stuffy (although men wear a jacket in the evenings), and we had an excellent waiter with an effusive personality who helped us enjoy ourselves. Very good appetizers (especially the fried deviled eggs - yes, you read that right). Good salads, and that night's special, the bone-in filet, was just wonderful. My mouth just started watering while remembering it. My wife's venison chop had potential (good sauce, well-cooked), but it was so tough a cut of meat that we left at least 2/3 of it sitting on the plate. Chewing it was a workout for our jaws. All that said, it was a lovely meal, and fortunately we had ordered enough that we weren't left feeling hungry in the least despite the one misstep. Breakfast (room service) was well-presented and right on time with their estimate (35 minutes). Pretty standard fare here, though the cafe lattes stood out as being quite nice. Nothing exciting, but everything about as you'd expect.
So the verdict is that we will definitely be returning. They also supposedly have a great kids' area (though we didn't get to explore it this time), and we may bring the little guys with us for our next visit. Highly recommended!
