Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel L'Horizon Audierne
Had a problem...but FIXED IN STYLE.
We were in Texas for a week on vacation. We made this the first night of our trip, (a Saturday) and then checked out, with the plan on coming back the next Thursday, for 3 nights. We had a BAD experience with the room on Saturday. We left a note, telling the desk of the major problem we had...imagine our surprise when we came back on Thursday, finding they upgraded us to a full suite (The Fine Arts Suite) and gave us a fruit and cheese tray at no cost!! WOW. Talk about righting a wrong!! I was very impressed. If you go, ask for a room on a higher floor, facing downtown Dallas. View is spectacular. Other side of hotel is a view of the parking lot, and a strip of alternative lifestyle nightclubs, which can be loud at night. BEAUTIFUL lobby, restaurant and bar. Customer service A+. Will be back.
The Rose of Dallas
This was my first stay at this Melrose Hotel and I was not disappointed. The room was more than comfortable, the staff accommodating, agreat location and a wonderful Bar/Lounge for relaxing after a long day.
Always a pleasure
I have been a business traveler for many years. I find it is always a pleasure to find a location that is not your typical stale hotel environment. The Melrose is not your typical hotel. A beautiful tasteful older property that has maintained its grandeur through the years. The staff was courteous and attentive to all of my needs. The rooms are luxurious and spotlessly clean. I also had the pleasure of enjoying an evening in the Library Bar with some of my clients. A great spot for business or casual conversation. I look forward to returning to the Melrose for all of my upcoming Dallas business.
My recent stay at The Melrose Hotel ~ Dallas was more than I could have dreamed. The room was spacious and luxurious. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. The food was delectable. I would highly recommend a stay at The Melrose.
Recommend this hotel for anyone in the Dallas-FW area!
The Melrose is perhaps one of the best hotels I've stayed at in Dallas.
Our one-bedroom suite was great... had a minibar, huge bathroom, granite wet bar, small dining area, huge living area with comfortable seating, and a soft comfortable bed. WebTV with wireless keyboard was a plus. Not only is the staff warm and attentive, the roomservice is excellent, the rooms are handsomely decorated, and lobby is ornate and large. All in all, it is a 4-5 star hotel.
Once lovely gem is now tarnished
The first time I stayed here about 8 years ago I thought I had found a real gem. The rooms were lovely and spacious (on the 4th floor), reasonably price, and the service very attentive and efficient. Over the next couple of years it still was worth coming even though the room rate seem to increase with every stay. However, after the last few stays over the last 2 years and especially this last one I have definitely decided I will not ever return. There is always a wedding going on which means a large amount of people. You would think then that the management would have more staff i.e. bell hops on hand to the handle the increase. There was only one bell boy when we checked in and I can't even begin to explain the mix up that happened with our luggage. What made it worse was how long it took to resolve the problem when they realized what had happened. Because of all the comings and goings with the wedding party the two operating elevators took forever to pick you up. Pretty annoying when it is late at night and you just manage to get your luggage(which the security guard is having to help you carry because the bell hop or a luggage cart cannot be found) and all you want to do is crawl into bed. Which was another nightmare. The mattress pad did not fit the bed and wrinkled and bunched along with the loose sheets. They would not stay tucked and they were the most uncomfortable sheets I have ever slept on. Because of the mix up with the luggage and the delay in gettiing it resolved the hotel manager did give us (myself and the 3 other people I was with) a complimentary breakfast in the hotel's very exclusive restaurant. After we passed all the plates around to get our correct orders, it was a fairly nice meal.-- (Oh, except my french toast was far too dry to eat). However the complimentary meal does not make up for the decline in what was once a wonderful little hotel. I am very disappointed.
Charm oozes from this hotel!
I've been staying at the Melrose since it was part of the Omni chain in the early 1990's. I've seen many transformations and staff have come and gone, but the one constant is incredible charm that seems ever-present at this property. The architectural details are beautiful but not over the top. The rooms are generally large and some bathrooms are HUGE. In a city where "cookie cutter" hotels are everywhere, the historic Melrose is a great alternative.
Great old hotel
I stayed at the Melrose in October of 2003. This is a great hotel.
There is nothing in the world like the classisc architecture of the great old hotels of yesteryear. The Melrose is a classic. We stayed in a suite and really had a great stay.
The rooms exterior window sills needed some paint, and the rooms could use new carpet, but it was a nice suite.
I did find it funny that the staff could not meet my request for a CD player. We were having friends up for cocktails and thought music would be nice. Most top hotels have CD players in the room. The Melrose staff could not find one. For the price $400/something a night. You would think they would just go buy a boom box. That is what you would expect from a "top" hotel.
All in all it is however a great hotel in a great location and I will stay there again.
Spacious rooms with wing back chairs and ottomans, separate dressing and work areas; a lovely paneled library bar with live music and good food. All of this with a hotel staff that always remembers your name and your favorite room. The Melrose is the epitome of service and understated elegance. I have stayed here over 20 stays, and look forward to each of my returns.
Not a luxury stay
The Melrose is certainly a charming place, especially from the outside.
The lobby is pretty & inviting, and the Library Bar is a great place to relax. However, the rooms don't fulfill expectations. Paper-thin walls (we heard our next-door neighbors all night), street noise (the hotel sits in the middle of a popular night-life district), and a toilet that ran all night...not a relaxing experience. Definitely not worth the luxury prices they charge.

When we first met Addy, we were given a very special book with pictures of her when she was at the orphanage. Inside this book, we saw a glimpse of her life there, include the nannies that cared for her. We often wonder if she misses them and if ...
... Yikes! The doctor did not seem to be overly concerned. He indicated Addy's kidneys are not commonly shaped. She has what you refer to as duplex kidney. In Mama simple language, it just means that each kidney has somewhat of an extra section with it's own tube to her bladder. In certain instances, they are completely non-functioning, which is not a concern unless they are causing problems. We will pray that is the case in ...
Our first stop on the road to South America was an overnight in Dallas, Texas on Spencer's B-day. So, I scouted out a famous BBQ place that was close to the airport and our hotel - Hard Eight Texas BBQ was it! We ordered a tray of meat - seriously. We chose a sampler tray of different meat including; beef brisket, chicken jalapeno poppers, spicy sausage, and some beef skewers plus we added corn on the cobb. Everyone's favorite was the beef ...
Dear Family and Friends,
Hello! We hope all are well. We have 2.5 weeks before we embark on our next adventure, and I'm trying to get our travel blog set up. Part of the process is making sure the folks on our "passenger list" still want to receive blog postings when we write them. We don't want to assume anything, so now's your chance to let me know if you'd prefer NOT to get the blog postings we write along the way (usually about every other day).

Lunch was a bit of a letdown as before we left Texas, Vaughan was determined to enjoy a good ribeye, however instead of resting the meat the way us South Africans are used to, this steakhouse kept them on ice, and they just lacked a bit of flavour.
Our favourite part of the day came after lunch however, when, while waiting for the cattle drive to start, we noticed a wooden maze. The aim of the game was to find ...
