Rated 1 out of 5 by oneFrequentTraveler HORRIBLE HOTEL - AVOID
Do not be deceived with the "newly renovated" claim. The rooms are still the same and the rudeness of the staff is still extremely obvious. Especially if you are unlucky to check-in in the morning. The evening shift leaves and the rude morning staff gets in and they are awful. Yes, they renovated the lobby and it's nice but it doesn't change how awful everything else is. AVOID!! There are other better hotels in the area.

The hotel's location to the Galleria is just across the road - great - 2 minute walk.
The best thing about this hotel is the staff.
They are so friendly and accommodating - they will go the extra mile to help you with anything. I wish all the hotels I stayed at had staff like this. They truely are wonderful!!

From registration to checkout the staff has worked diligently to make my 16 stays this year first class experiences. Close proximity to my favorite restaurants and North Dallas entertainment spots I expect to stay here for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BIKERBUD ONE OF THE BEST HOTELS IN DFW
I have seen this hotel evolve and thrive. I have been using this hotel for years and have seen it transform into a very nice and comfortable modern property. This location is optimal for : Galleria shopping; dining in the restaurant row on Beltline; easy access to downtown via toll way; and I have even stayed here to use the airport. The demeanor of the staff just makes you feel that you belong there. I encourage everyone to give this hotel a shot. 635 freeway is almost finished but even at the peak of its construction, I had no trouble staying here. There's several surface roads one can take to get around.

Room not ready until after 3 pm check in time. No apologies. Breakfast unappetizing and staff chatting among themselves than helping guests.

Rated 3 out of 5 by angildna Very disappointed in quality
I could feel the springs in the mattress all through the night. After driving into Dallas from Houston to get up and drive back the next day, I was expecting the Sheraton (especially at the 4-star price I paid) to be restful, relaxing and a nice respite from all the driving. When I brought it up to the person at checkout, all he offered was to cover my parking. The lack of caring and accommodation was very disappointing. I was very upset and will not likely stay at any Sheraton in the future. I'll take my money somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Connie713 Great stay...great staff
I had the pleasure of staying at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel by the Galleria in November, 2013 while in Dallas for business. I'm not a fan of chain hotels but this one was a most pleasant surprise. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, largely because of the highly professional and friendly staff....everyone from the van drivers, to the front desk staff, from the lunch server to the restaurant managers. The appearance and cleanliness were top-notch and pleasant. I was trying to think of something to mention that would need improvement but I came up empty. I'd like to single out a few individual staffers who impressed me very much: Shunte (front desk agent), Ben (valet/van desk), and everyone in The Front Yard Restaurant (Pete Hernandez, Stephen Williams, Fernando, Valerie and Maribel). I usually make it a practice to avoid restaurants in hotels, but I'm glad I changed my mind this time. I would definitely choose to stay there again if in Dallas, and highly recommend it to anyone else. It always comes down to the staff!

Rated 3 out of 5 by RogerD408 Nice Stay, but...
Booked a point stay here early April, was told the only rooms available were double bed club level and 5500 points. Got to the property and asked about a king and there was one available but it wasn't club level. Asked for the 1500 extra points to be refunded and told that would be done. However, the 1500 points never got posted. Attempted to contact property using their email link posted on their web page and no response. Contacted SPG and they adjusted my account within minutes! Never any response from the property.
Went up to the lounge for breakfast and no one was there. No sign or anything. Called the front desk and was told breakfast was in the restaurant downstairs along with all the soccer teams staying there. :(

WOW!!!!!!!!!! I mean they really exceeded my expectations. Quick check-in, no waiting for my room to be ready.The room size was great, Nice and Clean. Plenty of towels. Shuttle service to and from the Galleria Mall. EXCELLENT breakfast buffet, free parking and internet for that weekend. 24 hour security. The staff Awesome. Best hotel bar I have been to in a long time. To me it was better than the Bar/s in Vegas. Can't wait to go back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MEJ2014 Recent Trip
The room was comfortable, but truly nothing special. The HVAC in the room kept cycling off when I was working at the desk because the motion detector wasn't detecting any motion.
When the TV came on each time, it didn't show a display, only sound, requiring me to turn it on and off and then back on to get the display.
A small point, but the clock in the room had the wrong time set on it and not just because of DST.
The curved curtain rod in the shower was nice, but it prevented the door from fully opening, which meant either I stood to the side in order to urinate, or I had to close the door in order to stand directly in front of the commode. Life threatening? No, but an inconvenience at 2:00am.
The breakfast buffet was nice, but there wasn't much variety as it was the same every day. In addition, I found a rather large hair in my scrambled eggs and when I told the gentlemen at the front, he minimalized it and passed it off as "things blow around." The folks at my table weren't very pleased with that response.
Finally, the conference rooms were adequate, but the HVAC had a lot of difficulty maintaining the temperature in our room. Consequently it frequently cycled on and off; so it was either blowing cold air or it became stiflingly warm. Several in our group had to keep sweaters and jackets handy. Truly an annoyance.

I stayed the night before they renovated, and it needed it. The lobby was really nice.
They needed snacks in the club lounge, the breakfast buffet was good, a little under staffed.
They should have spent some money on the elevators, a scary ride.
The only thing I didn't like was the $10 parking fee.

From the moment I walked through the door the staff was friendly, helpful and treated me like royalty. The room was spotless and well furnished. The breakfast was delicious and the waitstaff friendly and efficient.
Would recommend to anyone looking for a top notch place in Dallas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PlatinumJames Second Chance
I stayed here a few months ago and did not have a great experience. The manager reached out to me and apologized and asked if I would come back again.
I didn't think I ever would but sometimes, just like people, hotels have bad days too.
This time around I enjoyed my stay much more than the first time. There were still some issues but my main complaints were over the staff and their behavior last time. This time, however, the staff performed at a much higher level than before. Proper greetings, positive engagement, even when giving negative news they did it in such a manner that it didn't feel that way. A really great improvement.
The hotel lobby and public areas are newly redone and are very fresh and modern. The rooms are very nice but the bathrooms are ridiculously small though. With out a major redo this hotel is just stuck with it's tiny bathrooms - the kind where you have to stratal the toilet to get out of the way of the door to close it. Is it fair to criticize a hotel for tiny bathrooms? Probably not, but the owners should think about a more extensive renovation next time to bring some luxury to the bathrooms.
My room was on the top floor (club level) directly in front of the elevator. Not so great of a location. The drone of the elevator penthouse was constant and come morning the activity in front of the elevators was very noticeable. I have stayed here before and never had that problem, however, so I think it is exclusive to that room location.
My platinum status brought me no upgrade. I have stayed at this hotel twice since it was remodeled and several times prior to that and have only been upgraded once. Until this visit and the one time I was upgraded to a junior suite, they never acknowledged my platinum status other than the paper jacket around my key card. This time he verbally acknowledged my platinum status and politely apologized that he could not upgrade me because they were very full, a true statement since there was only one spot left in parking lot upon my arrival.
One of my pet peeves with this hotel is that it doesn't have many suites. It has 14 junior suites and one presidential suites, which they try and charge a laughable $800 a night for. It is only double the size of standard room (500 sq.ft. if that) and even when it is 11:00 PM at night and it is still listed on the website for sale, they will never put anyone in it as a platinum guest.
I have to say, sans upgrades and room location, my stay here this time around was MUCH more enjoyable this time around.
I will give it another stay in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by egrs2014 Fantastic staff & and lobby
The staff was fantastic. They had a great attitude and were extremely responsive in their efforts to accommodate my needs and special circumstances. The front desk especially exceeded my expectations and would be the main reason I would stay at this hotel again. Also enjoyed the lobby. I felt it was an upgrade to most Sheraton hotels. The only negatives would be the club lounge (or essentailly a lack of), and the location of the pool which was a bit noisy.

Very nice facilities. Guest check-in, lobby, business work stations and bar/restaurant look new, clean and modern. The guest room was large and comfortable. The work out facility (gym) had plenty of equipment and is open 24 hours. I chose this hotel because of the work out facility and was not disappointed. Be aware there is major road construction in the area and it can be difficult getting to the hotel.

Our annual romantic vacation turned into a "stay-cation" after a series of unfortunate events. But nonetheless, I was looking forward to a great weekend. I was wrong: IT WAS A WONDERFUL WEEKEND! Upon checking in, I was promptly greeted by Edgar at the SPG designated check-in counter. Shaute assisted with the correction to the wireless internet charge upon checkout. GREAT SERVICE ALL AROUND!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tiff54 Double Charged for Room!!!
my original reservation was for 3 nights, I called on the 2nd night and added 2 addtional nights. Once I checked out I reviewed my bank account and saw that I was not only charged for my 5 nights but an additional charge for 2 more nights. I called the hotel to have the charges investigated. I was advised that they showed me checked into rooms 707 & 705. Once it was confirmed that I was only in room 707, I was told the charge would be credited back to my account. I waited a week and still no refund. I called back to the hotel and spoke to Ben to check the status of my refund and he found no refund had been processed at all! So the original person I spoke to did nothing! Ben issued the refund and after over 2 weeks of waiting my account was finally refunded. The business practices of this hotel leave much to be desired. I will not be back, I don't think I can trust them with my bank account info again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by bsafe dissapointed in recent stay for frequent guest
I stay at this Sheraton LBJ hotel about twice a month. Typically I LOVE this hotel but didn't have the best experience this time around due to the elevator issues which resulted in long waits and the fact that I didn't have very hot water in the a.m. due to a water main bursting, resulting in water having to be turned off in the evening.
However, staff member Rachel was extrememely helpful and made it right for me by compensating me with starwood points as a result of these inconveniences. Therefore, I am going to chalk this up as a one time issue vs. a reoccuring happening. I look forward to my next visit a couple of weeks from now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JSL28 Not what I hoped for
Recently remodeled, clean room.
Road construction in front of hotel made it difficult to travel to and from the hotel.
Parking gate was not working properly. Had problems entering as soon as we checked in and then when leaving later on we could not get out. My husband had to park and go into the front desk 3 times before he was told to just press the "help button" and they would buzz the gate and let us out. The gates only worked twice the two days we were there. The second day we noticed they left both gates open all the time...problems? No charge for the parking thou.One elevator never worked while we were there. The first morning when leaving for the day 2 of the 3 elevators were not working. We took the stairs!One night when we arrived back (10pm)the lights in the lobby area were off...not sure why.The bathroom had no "Roll in shower". Tub/shower together. TINY bathroom, low ceilings.
A/C fan rattled when running making to difficult to sleep.
Breakfast was not included.
This hotel is not a 4-star hotel.

This is a fine hotel with a great staff. The only complaint I have is the in room coffee. It's Maxwell house and not Starbucks as they have at every other Sheraton I visit. It may be minor to some but for me the in room coffee is something I enjoy. Bring back the Starbucks

Rated 2 out of 5 by GATraveler Still in need of work
Not what I expected for a newly renovated hotel. It's pretty obvious the lobby area was the focus for the improvements. This was my first stay at this hotel so I can't compare it to the pre-renovation status. The lobby is beautiful and I was told by a representative at the front desk the leather wall behind the check-in cost $20,000. I would have spent that money elsewhere.
Most of the furniture in the room appeared to be new. The 2002 CD alarm clock could have stood an update. In the bath, the fixtures were worn and light fixture rusted so those must not have been included in the updates. The thermostat in my room kept going off and on and the toilet made a hissing noise all night.
Getting into the club lounge (which I had to ask where it was because I wasn't told at check-in) required two trips back downstairs as my room key would not open the door. The second time I was given a separate card just for club access.
Room service menu and service hours is limited. If you'll be arriving late, be sure to eat on your way to the hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteadyAT Better than expected
I was somewhat hesitant to book this location based on the reviews, but took the chance because the location was close to where I had meetings.
I was unable to check-in early (around 1pm); the front desk clerk was very apologetic but explained they were fully booked the night before, and no one would be able to check-in before 3pm. He offered to store my bags, but because I had my computer, I declined. I finally checked in after 9pm (after my meetings), and I was offered late check-out, which I accepted.
My room was great - everything was in order. Apparently, the Club Lounge was not ready yet, but I skipped breakfast anyway. I had lunch in the Front Yard (lobby bar/restaurant). The food was very good, and reasonably priced, and the bartender friendly but not intrusive.
WIFI was fine in the room, and I appreciated the late check-out which gave me some time to catch up on emails and work before a late afternoon meeting.
I would stay at this location again, and hopefully, will have more time to visit the Galleria Mall that is very close-by!
