Went to Dallas, actually Addison, this past weekend had a blast! Got there Friday evening checked into the Intercontinental Hotel Dallas, the place is beautiful!
There is a big spacious lobby with gift and floral
shops, Starbucks, and a wonderful fountain.
The room was spacious and comfortable, the bed was very nice...I slept like a baby! On the 14th and 15th floors there is a lounge area connected by a stair case, T.V. chairs, tables,couches and with the great view, it was a wonderful place to relax.
The concierge was very helpful on Friday evening we were looking for a nice place to get a good steak. He provided us with a dining map of restaurants that were close by and made some very knowledgeable recommendations.
He even got us a reservation at Arthur's Prime Steaks And Seafood a very nice but at that time of the evening, busy restaurant, within 30 minutes! The guy had skills!!
I had a fantastic time, will return again, and highly recommend staying here on your next visit to the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
Speaking of Arthur's OMG...the food was wonderful!
We had their Mediterranean Salad, Filet Minon,with crab & shrimp and for dessert Grand Marnier Creme Brûlée all with a very nice Cabernet.
The atmosphere was elegant yet simple and welcoming and the wait staff was incredible!
