I was in Dallas and needed a downtown hotel at the last minute. I called the 800# from my car and inquired about rooms. The young man I talked to sounded a little confused about which hotel I wanted. I told him the Dallas Omni, the new one at the convention center downtown. He found it and said the rate was $99. I was surprised and asked if that was the hotel on Lamar, donwntown at the convention center. He said yes. So I headed downtown to claim my room.
The hotel driveway was really crowded and kind of chaotic with people directing traffic and confusing traffic barriers. I left my car with the valet ($25) and went to checkin. The nice young lady behind the desk couldn't find my reservation so I showed her the confimation # that had just arrived on my phone. She said that there was a mistake and I was booked at the Omni in Richardson...grrr. I told her that I needed to stay downtown. She said they had rooms for $169. I asked if she could match the
price I was quoted, she said no and apologized. I was running late for an evening appointment so I took it.
The lobby is huge and impressive and was full of youngsters attending the weekend volleyball event at the adjacent convention center.
My room was on the 7th floor. When entering the room there is a key port that contols the electricity inside the room( like most other countries) The room was average size and very stylish. It had several modern amenties like a motion sensored footlight that lights the floor for a night time trip to the bathroom, an in-mirror bathroom tv, floor to ceiling windows, a nice desk with two chairs, coffe maker and refrigerator but no mini bar, safe and robes.
The bed was very comfortable and the entire room was cozy and had nice decor and accents. It was also really quiet, even with the young volleyball crowd crawling the halls.
Overall it's a really nice hotel but it's huge and built for conventions. Other than the convention center there is very little around it that is appealing but if you need to be on the southwest side of downtown, at the convention center or Belo this is a much better
choice than the Hyatt.
