Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek

... tonight. REALLY? ??? That's what's most important to society now? I can't say I blame my generation for the way we have turned out. I can say that it's not too late to change. When being chemically gassed to death is a legitimate fear and viable possibility, I think it's time to look at what we as a future of leaders can do to change the way our future looks. Instead of gossiping and spreading lies over the success of your neighbor, or criticizing a stranger over their ...
... even though travel is my destiny and adventure runs through my veins, I don't deserve to have a life in paradise unless I can help others find their own. The aircraft is making its descent and we have to bring our seats back to their upright position. I'm sad my day trip is coming to an end, but deep inside me I can feel a fire starting.... It's telling me that this is just the beginning of a story that will be ...

A quirky site was up next - 10 Cadillacs buried in the ground with the fins up to what is known as Cadillac Ranch. We were surprised at the amount of spray cans left lurking about, so we thought it would be rude if we didn't join in with some tagging of our own - alas it has probably already been painted over by now.
STEAK STEAK STEAK - Our sole purpose of going to Amarillo was to indulge in a giant steak and this place was famous for it. Upon being seated, we scoured the menu ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek Dallas
This hotel is the most over-rated hotel in the US. I cannot BELIEVE this hotel is voted the best in the US, please. The Ritz in Orlanda is much better, the Ritz in Naples is much better, the new Gaylord in Dallas is much better, I can name hundreds of hotels that offer better service. The hotel itself is beautiful, the terrace suite that my boyfriend payed a small fortune for was worth every penny. However, the service within the hotel was awful. We had to ask for everything twice! Now, paying the money we were paying and this hotel being rated "Best Hotel in the US", our needs and wants should have been anticipated. We have stayed at 5 star hotels all over the world and never have we had service such as this, not even at the Mandarin Hotel in London was it ever this bad! You would think we were at the Holiday Inn! This hotel is more over-rated then Britney Spears.
Beautiful and Romantic
My husband and I spent our anniversary at the Mansion. We were extremely impressed with every aspect of our stay. We went to the pool to sit and soak up the sun rays and were pleasantly surprized that an attendant came out promptly after we sat down with ice and bottled water. We never could figure out how she knew we were there because there were no windows and she came from behind a closed door. The service we received at the pool was just an example of the type of service we received. They even had someone bring ice to our room. I couldn't have been more impressed with this hotel.
As far as hotels in Dallas go, this one ranks right at the top. Located in the Turtle Creek area, this hotel is right outside of downtown (no noise, prettier surroundings), but within a few minutes of all of the major commercial areas.You are covered with attentive service from the moment you walk into the hotel, and the accommodations and rooms are large and comfortable. The views are not outstanding, but you don't stay at this hotel for views.There is a great jogging path nearby that runs along the creek. And, best of all, the hotel offers courtesy Mercedes service that will take you to and from any destination within 5 miles, including all of downtown. When I do business in Dallas in the future, there is no longer any reason to stay downtown versus staying here. Its a great option.
The Mansion and Dean Fearing are my favorites
I am 74 years old and I have traveled extensively around the world for more than 25 years. The Mansion on Turtle Creek ranks in my top 3 favorite hotels of all time. I go there at least twice a year. And, the restuarant has Chef Dean Fearing,one of the great chefs in America.
What is there not to like about the Mansion?
For my birthday my husband took me to the mansion for a weekend...we are accustomed to nice places, i.e four season in Austin is one of my favorites... The mansion and its premier restaurant were certainly not worth the asking price nor did they live up to the American airlines top 10 hotels... We were hugely disappointed. Rooms were VERY average, the Westin offers a heavenly bed (super comfortable)the mansion was a step above a ramada inn... The rooms were small, views were terrible...just seems old and stale. Cristal champagne was readily available, just not in the BRUT we wanted...$350 a bottle, so go to your local liquor store for $150 The service was uppety (seems they forget who pays their salary). We did enjoy the cigar bar...but I would recommend the westin or Gabors new hotel...
The single most overrated hotel in America today
I have never understood the rave reviews surrounding this hotel, especially having stayed there on more than one occasion. Aside from its ideal location in the heart of Turtle Creek, there is very little in my view to justify the hotel's rating relative to the Crescent Court (ironically of the same Rosewood chain) and the Four Seasons in Las Colinas. The service is snooty enough to border on hostile and the rooms are totally ordinary. The restaurant is about the only part of the hotel worthy of its reputation -- were it not for the holier-than-thou condescending service, it might actually rival a few of Dallas' finest dining establishments.
In a word...horrible. I have stayed at so many other better places. I believe that this place WAS good back in the days of "Dallas" the TV show but it has completely lost its luster.
The room was such a let down. It was so small and far from luxurious.
I usually visit Dallas at least once a year because I have relatives there. I have been staying at The Mansion for 10/12 years now. I just returned from a 3 night visit in July. I thought everything was just as great as it was 10 years ago. I absolutely love Dean Fearing's cooking.
The Mansion is just that!
My husband and I have stay at the Mansion at Turtle Creek whenever we want to feel like royalty and dine on exquisite cuisine. It is most assurredly expensive, but it is one of the few places we stay in out travels that really earns its reputation. For example, the last time we were there (February 2003), we arrived late in the evening, tired from a long drive. We were pretty grungy so we didn't want to go to the restaurant. Instead, the staff quickly prepared us cocktails which we sipped on the poolside terrace while a light supper was prepared. We did dine in the Mansion's restaurant the next evening and the food was interesting and expertly prepared. If you want a truly luxurious hotel experience, I cannot recommend the Mansion on Turtle Creek too highly.
