For those lucky enough to be able to afford a luxurious hotel stay (or work for a company that will spring for it), Ritz Carlton in the Uptown neighborhood of Dallas is a wonderful choice. An Uptown address assures proximity to the heart of Dallas nightlife, restaurants and boutique shops. It is a much better locale than Downtown and Market Center, especially on weekends when the latter two areas have less action.
All Ritz properties almost guarantee classy and comfortable accommodations, upscale decor and attentive service and this Ritz is no exception. 400 thread-count bedding, marble baths with separate tubs and showers (with rain heads), fully stocked refreshment center, flat panel televisions with HD programming, highlight Ritz's impeccable guest quarters. 24-hour room service is available for those arriving late or with overnight cravings. Even a "technology butler" is available to assist with any computer or internet needs.
Ritz's 24/7 gym is accessible with your room key and stocks a fine assortment of top-notch Technogym cardio and strength equipment. Televisions are attached to the treadmills, ellipticals and bikes. Ample natural light shines through the large windows. It's a welcoming space and one where major exercise can be performed. After your workout, reward yourself with a massage or salon treatment inside Ritz's spa, a great way to rejuvenate your sore muscles and relax your busy mind.
Runners should consider an outdoor jaunt along our Katy Trail route.
