Big "D"

Overview

Quote:
We stayed at the brand new Park Cities Hilton. This is a very upscale hotel in the heart of Park Cities. There is shopping and restaurants within walking distance.

Doubletree Hotel Dallas Campbell Centre

Hotel | "Double Tree Hotel Campbell Center"

Quote:
The rooms have all been redone (1999-2000) and are very nice, especially the king corner rooms. They have floor to ceiling windows all the way around the room. It is beautiful at night to open the drapes and see the view of Dallas. The rooms are very comfortable. This hotel does not have a pool. It does have 2 outdoor hot tubs. The hotel has a shuttle bus that will take you and pick up within a 5 mile radius. Some restaurants close by include the CheeseCake Factory and PF Changs.

The standard rooms are clean, comfortable and fresh. Coffee is delivered to your room with your wake-up call. The concierge level rooms are deluxe.

Very upscale. New. Internet Access via television. Nice workout area. Rooftop pool and hot tub. Concierge level on top 3 floors. Bathrobes in every room. Friendly and knowledgable staff.Please note that this hotel is brand new and is not quite up to speed in all areas. Fitness room and club area on the concierge level was not finished when we stayed there. This hotel is within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. Starbucks coffee, bakeries, and California Pizza Kitchen are all in walking distance. Also the highly recommended upscale (resale)clothing store "The Clothes Circuit" is very close by.

Opio

Restaurant

Quote:
This restaurant is located in the Park Cities Hilton. The Calamari was some of the best I've ever eaten. I would highly recommend any of the seafood and also the duck. (However you should pass on the bread.) The chef came from "The Rooster" Restaurant and everything is very FRESH. Also the room service is served from the restaurant. Great for a romantic getaway!Reservations are highly recommended at night. Be forwarned the portions are large. Everything we ordered was enough to share.

Very nice clothing, jewelry, handbags and coats. This is the best resale store I've found. Channel, Escada, Kate Spade, St John are all brands regularly found here.Any time Foley's Dept store is having a RED Apple sale, then this store is also having a sale called the Yellow Banana Sale. A good selection of Furs on our last visit.
