The staff was friendly and efficient. Our room was clean and comfortable. The room was cleaned and clean towels brought to the room. The Valet parking was convenient and we received prompt service when leaving and arriving at the hotel. I recommend the hotel and look forward to staying again.

Elevator was not working, had to use stairwell to 3rd floor with a bad knee, didn’t know I was paying $30 for parking, room very small with a little window looking at a wall. It took 5 minutes every morning to get the shower water to get hot.

Very Pleasant
When I go back to Dallas for work, this place will definitely be my go to! The entire place was comfortable and also has a safety vibe. Just remember to leave at least one room for me, in the event it is packed!
