Whether for business or pleasure, a stay at the Rosewood Crescent Court Hotel, located in the Dallas Uptown Arts District, offers the discerning traveler exceptional accommodations. This limestone building, enhanced with wrought iron exterior accents, opened in 1985. As part of a multi-use center that includes an 18 story office building and shops, the Crescent Hotel is listed in the August 2010 Travel and Leisure Magazine as one of the Worlds Best Hotel Awards (100 rooms or more).
I booked my stay online through the hotel web site. I chose the Rosewood Escape Package, which included accommodations for one night, valet parking, internet access, 20% off dinner at the Crescent Club and breakfast for two in the Conservatory or the privacy of my own room. As a solo traveler this was the best offer that met my needs. Other packages included the use of the Spa at the Crescent for two and other dining options. Besides the Rosewood Escape, The Pamper Daily Package for Two features the use of the Spa (a 22,000 square foot area providing health and beauty treatments), a welcome bottle of champagne, breakfast for two, lunch at the Spa Cafe and valet parking. The Nobu Retreat Daily Package for Two features a welcome amenity, dinner at Nobu ($150.00 dining credit), breakfast for two, use of the Spa facilities and valet parking. The above mentioned packages are just several of many packages to choose from.
When I arrived at the hotel, I was greeted by friendly staff members who parked my car, took my bags and escorted me into the hotel lobby. Check-in was quick and the hotel associate was professional, friendly and helpful. The hotel lobby, extremely spacious and elegant, had gleaming marble floors, limestone walls and floor to ceiling windows that gave the area a luxurious look. A large glass and wood table showcased tall, clear glass cylinder vases containing beautiful and fragrant orchids. On each side of the table, sheer ivory floor to ceiling drapes formed spacious alcoves for guests to sit, read and enjoy a cup of coffee or a beverage of their choice.
Yeah, that's me, the one standing in the aisle wearing flammable polyester...
