Last month, I was in Dallas for a behind the scenes tour of DFW airport with American Airlines. I needed a place to stay for the weekend, so I spent three nights at the Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre hotel. I know I am a loyal Starwood guest, but I found an amazing low rate for this hotel. I used American Airlines miles to redeem for hotels. In this case, I spent 15,000 miles total for three nights at the Hilton Dallas which was a bargain since the going rate was $150 daily. I called the hotel to have them add my Hilton HHonors Gold number so I could receive benefits, stay, and night credits.
It was fairly easy to get to this hotel, but there was a lot of construction going on around the Lyndon B Johnson freeway. The hotel is located one minute away from the Dallas Galleria shopping center which was convenient.
Be aware that self-parking is $15.00 a day and there is no way to avoid it since there are no parking lots and no street parking around this business park area. I checked into the hotel and was pleasantly greeted by the front desk agent. He told me I was upgraded to an executive room with executive lounge access.
The executive room was very spacious and looked very modern, sleek, and stylish.
The bathroom was small, but adequate and functional.
I went to the executive lounge for evening appetizers and there were chicken nuggets, turkey wraps, and a selection of various cheeses.
Breakfast was very paltry and contained only eggs, bacon, cereal, and fruit.
I had a great time at the hotel even though I didn’t spend much time in the room itself. It’s a no frills business hotel located by the Galleria and would likely return again if I get a good rate. It’s only 20 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes to get into the Dallas city-center.
