While we find W's kitschy labels and sayings annoying (e.g., the gym is called "sweat," the standard rooms are named "Wonderful rooms," etc.), there isn't much regarding the stay at this new Dallas accommodation that we dislike. If you want a home away from home with some funk, flavor and vibe, the Dallas W will be a good match. And don't miss checking out the suite options (foosball table!).

All 252 guest quarters are 21st century showrooms with high tech gadgets such as 42-inch LCD televisions and wireless internet access, upscale furnishings that include pillow top mattresses and 350 thread count sheets, and luxury bathrooms that boast rainfall showerheads and marble vanities. For those travelers who prefer a higher floor, an upgrade to W's "Spectacular" rooms is required. Other upgrades are also available: suite sizes, rooms with balconies, etc., but frankly we don't believe they're worth the extra dough. Internet is extra; bottled water is free!

W's complimentary workout option is a good one...a very good one. In a huge space (3,000 sf according to W's website, but we don't believe it's that big). W's hotel gym stocks a large assortment of cardio, strength and resistance equipment. In addition to your typical Life Fitness cardio apparatus that you find at most health clubs, W also supplies Hammer Strength free weight equipment that gives athletic-minded travelers the opportunity to perform bench press and other muscle pump exercises. Such free weight machines are a rare sight inside hotel gyms. Rounding out the strength options are 8 stack-loaded stations and dumbbells weighing up to 75 pounds.

Lap swimmers will have to head to the Downtown YMCA or Verandah Club because W's outdoor pool is not a traditional lapper, neither lane lines nor bottom stripes, but it is cool!

Runners disinterested in the 8 treadmills may find appealing our recommended Katy Trail run.
