... formalities rubber stamped, a sprightly 76 year old fella name of Troy helped us with our bags and shuttled us downtown to the MCM Elagante Hotel where we had booked a night's accommodation. We checked in and partook of brunch at a nearby iHop diner, which was like therapy but with pancakes and maple syrup. By 6pm we were sitting poolside sipping Piņa colada and digging the swampy chops of 8 Ball Aitken via the iPhone. This was also ...

Gate-checking my bag--and having it go ALL THE WAY THROUGH to my final destination--was not part of the plan and was very stressful because all my souvenirs for family were tucked inside this little suitcase. But I parted with it and made my way onto the cramped aircraft. I sat next to a rather nosy ...
We bought a truck to carry the camper today! It needs a little work, but seems basically strong. Once we get it travel-ready, we need to go to Arizona to pick up the camper.
In other news today, we also decided to rent out our house (rather than selling), and selected a property management company.
A huge progress day!
... Termite termite baiting may be a particularly efficient resource used for eradicating colonies, even from hundreds of yards away. It's prime drawback is the duration it needs. It is not unknown for termite baiting to take up to half a year or longer to be effective. PRO - A real nest slayer.

So I turned up at the shuttle departure at 2.50 for a 3pm departure thinking the shuttle might get there a few minutes before it was due to leave. No. And it hadn't arrived by 3.10 or 3.15, either. At this point there were a number of us waiting so another passenger and I went to the taxi desk to get some information. The taxi controller couldn't help but she did eventually offer a free taxi trip to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Dallas by the Galleria
This place is great! The suites are very comfy.. not too small. Bathroom is accessible from both rooms which is a plus! Nice indoor pool and it is located directly across from Macy's at the galleria.
Great Location, Great Service
I have stayed in Dallas on many occassions and have simply missed this property. If you are searching for the perfect location for a weekend of shopping then this place may only be second to the Westin Galleria. The suites offer a little extra room to relax and are well appointed. The staff was great. You can tell that they are trained to deal with demanding business travelers. The shuttle is a nice extra. DO NOT OVERLOOK THIS HOTEL. Dollar for dollar the best value in Dallas. Breakfast can be a little chaotic.
Most Comfortable Hotel beds
We stayed here after bidding on Priceline. Room was $52/night which is much less expensive than lesser rooms in the area. So, we weren't expecting all that much. However, the room was very clean, the staff very friendly and the beds were terrific. . . not your typical hotel beds. We also liked the fact that you actually could control the termperature in the room. Most tout that feature, but never seem to work. The business center was great and the shower was very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.
Great all around!
Very clean and a great place for business travelers. If your in one of the suites facing inside, not a lot of natural lighting. Great location next to the Galleria mall. (Nordstrums, Saks, etc). Workout facility is not that great, but there is a small indoor pool. They also have a game room with a pool table. Great resturants close by. Also, one of the best meals I have ever had (seafood) next door (The Oceanaire). The Blue Fish (Best Sushi in Dallas) is a mile away. Starbucks a block away. Will stay there next time on another business trip. Plus, got deal where if you stay 3 nights, get 1 night free.
Very Satisfied & Booked Through Priceline
Comfortable though not spacious, we enjoyed 6 straight nights here for work in the Dallas area. Hotel is located outside of central Dallas, near locally famous Galleria mall and freeway interchange - not so picturesque setting, but fine. Price notes at bottom.
PLUSSES: Shower, furniture and bed all in good shape. Internet access provided for free in room - both wireless and ethernet, and worked great. Parking is advertised as $4 per day, but we were not charged. Faxing and using hotel business center was workable, though not perfect. HBO, two out three news channels (no Fox).
MINUSES: Big one was the room's air conditioner... it was very loud when starting and stopping... we actually turned it off at night, and sweated a bit. Avoid weekend brunch - undistinguished at best. All beige tones in hotel and room made us a little nuts after a while... colors at home seem super-bright when we returned. One nice touch: hotel gave us down pillows when we mentioned our foam pillows were not so comfortable.
GETTING A DEAL: We used Priceline to get hotel for approx $50 per night after consulting BiddingForTravel... great tips on prevailing rates for Priceline in different localities, and bidding strategies. This hotel is rated as 4 Stars on Priceline.
Very nice- but small prob
was nice room- especially since i was travelling with baby- room is virtually baby proofed- and nice and quiet. service was very good, except they didn't get the crib into the room as asked- i ended up having to ask several times, and then wait 45 minutes before it was delivered, at which point i had a delirious baby. i will stay there again!
Rude rude service
Had problems with the service. Manager (Valerie) was very rude and didn't try to resolve the issues.
Most Comfortable Beds Ever
We got a great rate on this hotel the 1st weekend of December. And since you can walk to Macy's (in the Galleria) from the hotel, we skipped all of the parking garage nightmare that other Christmas shoppers endured! The restaurant and bar were unavailable due to a company holiday party, but the hotel compensated by waiving the room service charge and offering a free glass of wine with room service.
Also, I don't know what it was, but the beds were the MOST COMFORTABLE I had ever slept in! I am planning to go back again this year, as I had had great experience.
What a great value for a wonderul hotel.
After getting an excellent rate on this hotel on Hotwire I was concerned that our service might be less than wonderful. Wrong! Despite a teenage soccer team staying that weekend the hotel was immaculately clean, quiet and the room was fantastic. The bathroom was huge with a wonderul granite counter top and the sitting area with sofa, microwave and desk was perfect. Wonderful access to the Galleria/ LBJ frwy/Dallas tollway. The only gripe was we were told we would have to pay a small amount to park at the hotel, but the gates stayed open & we were never charged. I'll be back.
Right across from Macys at the Galleria, the Hilton Suites Dallas North is close to mall shopping, restaurants and various other big name stores. The hilton suites are just like the embassy suite in style with the central atrium and lack of view from the rooms. But the whole point is location and price. We found that going direct with hilton reservations they offered the best price. The corner rooms are the largest and if you ask nicely you may just get a free upgrade like we did. The bedrooms are quite small but they have comfortable king or twin rooms, the lounge part of the suite is enormous in the cormer rooms - well worth the difference if you are staying a while. The Galleria area is in a dry county so you cannot buy wine unless at a restaurant. The neighbouring county Addison is not dry, and just a few minutes drive. There is a charge for parking. The indoor pool is shallow but just long enough to enjoy a swim. I was the only one in the pool while we were there. The gym is next door to the pool and has the usual equipment. The hotel was only opened in October 2002 so the furnishings are still fresh looking. Well worth a visit.
