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.

Spring has sprung in Denton. The trees are leafing up, roses are blooming and wildfowers and birds are everywhere. I walked into Denton this morning, about 2.6km. On the way I found a little piece of Tibet. It is a yoga place so I will be going back there for at least one class, just for the atmosphere. I didn't stop to get another chilli coffee as the café was crowded, so that will be on the list for Monday and Tuesday.... Along the way I happened on 'Sleeping ...
... and Spanish - Texas was a Spanish Colony until the 1800's. I found a great little coffee shop called 'Jupiters' which is a bit like 'The Sweat Shop' back in Townsville used to be. Loads of coffees, smoothies etc and a bohemian atmosphere. Uni students populate this place, all with their laptops, tablets out because it has free wifi. And the shops; there is a dress shop called La De Da where I could buy every dress!!! How unusual. Its sister shop next ...
From our overnight at Lake Hubbard, we drove to Dallas to the George W. Bush Presidential Library, a request from Jimmy. EXCELLENT choice- so interesting, from the first exhibit about the American pastime of baseball ( and ALL the Presidents involvements), to the Response to 9-11 exhibit, and the Oval Office reproduction. Our next stop was to relive November 22, 1963. The sixth floor of the Book Depository building at Dealey Plaza was full of ...
... to get to the Farmers Market for a late lunch. However, disappointingly, we found out it is closed until Spring 2015 despite frequent advertising around Downtown that it's open 7 days a week. Therefore we headed back to a more local (to our accommodation) steak restaurant where we indulged on Buffalo steak (amazing! and softer than beef), shrimp, roast veggies, salad, dessert, and 2 drinks all for $30 each (including tip)! Then back to the hotel to rest before our first ...
My last day here in the USA... How sad that my trip is now over! This morning we woke up late, but we all needed it, and then we went out for a late coffee to Saxby's. After coffee we drove over to whole foods market and did some grocery shopping but also got lunch there as well which was yummy! We got home, ate lunch and then I said goodbye to Greg and at about 2.30pm Cathy and I left to go to the airport. Our first stop was sprinkles cupcakes! Cathy antes to show me ...
