Rated 5 out of 5 by GaleLL Beautiful hotel with a great shopping mall
This is an excellent hotel with a wonderful shopping mall attached and great places to eat. The "green" option that our conference chose was different, which meant no room cleaning, bed made, or towel changes during my stay was different, I was there for 5 nights so that was a little difficult, but the staff replenished anything I wanted if asked.

Terrific hotel. Can't beat the location. The upgraded video service is a breath of fresh air. the Lodgenet App that controls the tv set from the iphone is spectacular.
The SPG executive lounge on the 21st floor is amazing. Great breakfast and great afternnon beverages before dinner.
The manager on duty during my stay was very responsive.
One of my favorite hotels anywhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ME1986 Valet
As we were checking out on Thursday Nov 21, I called to get the car brought to front by valet. Got downstairs with luggage to leave...saw my car out in rain...not under the covered drive through. Had to go find valet to get my keys...with no offer to load luggage...I them went in rain to load the luggage. Totally unacceptable service for a $27 per night additional charge!

The hotel met all of our needs. We planed the stay within a couple of hours of our check in and our stay was fantastic.

I had an excellent stay at the Westin Galleria. The staff and service was exceptional and provided us anything we needed or wanted. I really enjoyed the stay fit option which allowed me to exercise and leave my gym bag at home. We experienced only a slight delay in some of our room service. Once delivered, the room service was exceptional. Overall, the stay was wonderful.

I was never recognized as an SPG member.
My room was very noise, since it was facing the toll road.
Could not change credit cards at check-in, since the front desk clerk did not seem to understand a simple request.

This hotel was very comforting. When we arrived the staff were nice and helpful making our check in process very smooth. Our room was very spacious and I really enjoyed the chase at the window which made for excellent reading. We struggled with finding good room temperature the room did not seem to cool at night. Check out was a breeze and again staff was very helpful.

Our family had a lovely saty. As soon as we checked in to the hotel the Front Desk Clerk immediatly focused on my three year old daughter and brought her a complimentary bag and hat. The hotel also provided complimentary cupcakes on the day we checked in. We immediatly felt comfortable and welcome. All of the staff including the 2nd Floor Bistro was extremely friendly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by peggy62 The room was really hot
Even though there was a temperature control in our room it did not seem to matter what it was set on, the temperature remained the same. I did not sleep well because I woke up numerous times hot and sweating .I would guess the constant temperature to be somewhere around 78 to 80.

Rated 2 out of 5 by debvz Not pleased
This was my second stay at this hotel and I was not impressed. I had a room with two beds. Upon getting into one bed, I quickly discovered a pungent odor: it was urine! I believe it was the duvet padding but I didn't stay in the bed long enough to investigate where the odor was coming from. Very disappointed since I plan to bring a large meeting there in a few months.

My husband and I were staying in the hotel for a very important event with his work. It was a great evening. We do not often stay at this hotel due to the fact that we are locals. The hotel staff was excellent, the event was great, and the room was spectacular. We even enjoyed the great shower in our bathroom. Overall, great value and experience for the money!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cdoc nice stay but pricey
Nice property, clean and well staffed. Asked for a king room but only queens available supposedly. After all the crazy taxes and add ons the room was well over $300 a night which is believe is kind of stiff. For this price I do not think you get free wi-fi either. Business center adequate to print out boarding pass but any copies etc. you have to use your credit card

I cannot believe that your hotel still charges ten bucks for internet connection. Your proud of your room rates and by adding an additional $10.00 when your competitors prove free access to internet seems you are lagging behind in customner service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NancyK74 Great location if you are a shopper
I just returned from a meeting at the Westin Galleria Dallas. Everything about the hotel was very much as expected. Extremely comfortable bed, nice meeting rooms and who could ask for a better location - attached to a wonderful high end shopping mall! I only wish that the weather had been nicer so I could have taken advantage of the beautiful outdoor rooftop pool.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Maverick77 Improvement Needed
Every time that I have stayed at this hotel, I have the same problem. I take medication that requires refrigeration, and while I am told every time that this is specified on my profile correctly, I have to call 4-5 times before every planned stay to actually get a tiny refrigerator in my room. The typical scenario is that I call the first time well in advance of the planned stay and am assured that one will be there in the room or I am told to call back on the day of arrival. I explain again that the reason that I am calling well in advance is so that a refrigerator can be reserved and be in the room upon arrival, and that the day of travel is understandably very busy and I am again calling well in advance to avoid yet one more thing to have to do on the day of travel. Being a corporate client who provides much business to your hotel, I would have hoped that this small yet important detail could be worked out without literally spending over 1.5 hrs over 4-5 calls for each stay to get this right. To further exacerbate the situation, the person on the phone often cannot find the reservation or doesn't want to take the time to look it up by name and says they cannot find it without the reservation number. If I again ask and voice surprise that I have to stop, find a file, and then tell them a reservation number when I could be btw flights etc., then they always end up finding the reservation, but I am so tired of this game. I call back a 2nd time to verify abt the refrig, and it is like I had never called at all and the same antics start all over again. This same frustration happens until I repeatedly have to then insist that the person with whom I am speaking actually contact the front desk and contact Facilities and confirm getting a refrig into my room. Upon arrival, what usually happens is that I am again told that they will do their best to accommodate my request which further irritates me as then I have to go to Oceanaire and get ice to keep my medication cold until hopefully the refrig will arrive as I don't want to risk that the ice machine on the floor will have ice. The best person with whom I had spoken so far was Angela last Monday. She could find the reservation without my having to drop everything and find the number. She took ownership and she called the front desk and when she came back to me, she told me the name of the person at the front desk who was assuring me that there would be a refrigerator in my room. However, upon arrival on Monday, when I got to the front desk to check in, I was only told that the system shows that there "should be" a refrigerator in the room. Luckily, there was, but this was my best experience after 5 calls and previous stays. For the caliber of hotel and for consistent corporate clients like my employer, this should be an easy item to manage. I should be getting a confirmation from the hotel in advance with certainty that the refrig will be in the room without question given how far in advance I book. The other item that is not consistent is that there is continual confusion at the front desk abt the timing of the shuttle to my local work place. My recommendation is that guest requirements or preferences on file actually be read in advance of their stay and accommodated or else why bother having them on file? My corporate colleague traveling with me had specified foam pillows due to her allergy to down. When we both checked in on Monday, she asked and was told that they would be in her room by the time we returned from dinner but they were not there! Regarding the shape of the soap and the wire soap holder in the shower, the soap constantly falls out btw the wire slots in the shower soap holder so who designed this as they never used this as a guest? I have to put a towel or something in the bottom to prevent the soap for continually to fall which poses a safety risk of having to keep bending down in a wet shower to get the soap and I am in good shape. If you are taking me seriously and really wanted this feedback, then pls do reply with a personalized response. I also have 2 more stays already reserved over the next few months. It would be great if I did not have to make 4-5 calls per trip abt a refrig and instead your hotel confirmed to me in writing that the refrig will be there, what the shuttle times are at which bldgs. of my employer leaving from your bldg. on which days, and if something could be done abt the shower soap holder or change the shape of the soap so that it doesn't fall through the wire holder. I look forward to a customized and personalized reply given the amt of time that I took to write this detailed feedback, and that I am a corporate client with additional planned stays. I think accommodation with concierge access would be warranted for corporate clients from a long standing corp client like my employer. I travel to Dallas frequently and decided to give the Galleria another try since last yr, but nothing changed for the better on what is a simple item, refrig, but critical for me to have. With the exception of Angela with whom I spoke on Monday before boarding my flight, all of the others did not take responsibility even though I stressed the need for a small refrig for medication. I look forward to your reply. Thanks

This Westin never fails to impress. We had a great stay. I used a platinum suite upgrade and the corner suite was finely appointed, spacious, and comfortable. A great use of a suite upgrade cert. The executive lounge is always stunning with the high celings and modern furnishings. The evening choices were more sparse then previous visits. This is a model Westin.

My compliments to the staff who were exceptionally welcoming and attentive. I loved my room which had a window seat for reading and watching a storm roll in.
I interacted with many of the staff and I can say that every single one of them were great. I highly recommend the Westin Galleria!

Clean, well maintained, courteous and attentive staff. It is located in the galleria so is convenient ot shopping if that is what you are looking for. Is located right off a major road so is a little noisy if you have a room in front.
There are some pretty good restaurants within a 10 minute drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 We love this hotel!
We stay at this hotel quite often. We live about 2 hrs away in a small town so we love an excuse to visit Dallas. What we like about this place is we arrive, park our car with the valet, and we enjoy! The service is always good. The rooms are spacious and very clean! Being connected to the Galleria is great and the staff members are always very accomodating!

A number of unexpected issues:
-No elevator from parking garage. Had to carry luggage up stairs though ice and snow
-Did not clear ice off entrances. Would have at least expected some paths.
-Elevators within hotel only 50% working. Had to wait 20+ minutes by elevator to get to room.
-Alarm clock in room set at 6AM. Most good hotels have maids check this.

I have stayed here many times at Starwood Platinum member. Staff at front desk always remember me and go out of their way to be helpful. Rooms are always spacious and pleasant. I particularly like the executive lounge and staff that works there- they go the extra mile to provide great service. I can stay anywhere in Dallas and this is my favorite place.

I don't get to Dallas with my grandson very often, but he remembers the last time we stayed at the Galleria Westin and he will remember this trip too. (He is eight yrs. old) He had Room Service at bed time, and at Breakfast too. We both enjoyed the pool and the cabanas, We topped the trip off with back to school shopping and ice skating. Lots of fun!

Wow, didn't expect the special welcome mat for my granddaughter who was celebrating her birthday in Dallas during our stay! She received a tray with a glass of milk and 3 precious mini-cupcakes. And also an American Doll bed ! We were both blown away and felt like celebrity!!!!!! Our visit could not have been more perfect! Thank you, Westin!!!!!!

Four of us met for a weekend of fun, food and shopping at the Westin Galleria. We were so pleased with every aspect - from the pleasant reception at the desk to our express departure. I even spoke with the front desk manager to let them know how pleased we were with everything - don't know that I've ever done that! I highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for a conference at the Westin and was impressed with the design and cleanliness of the property. It's connect on two different floors to the Galleria Mall which has some upscale shopping. The Executive Lounge is wonderfully appointed with excellent staff (including Ana) who were all very friendly and made the stay excellent for us.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lynn98 Parking Difficult - Shower Awful
Stayed on the 8th floor. It took me over 5 minutes and 1 call to the desk to determine how to use the shower (change H20 from tub to shower mode). Pillows were uncomfortable. Had to park in the Orange parking garage and walk a long way with my luggage because other, closer options & how to get to them were not clear. Will not stay there again.

The Westin Galleria Hotel is a great place to stay in Dallas. The shopping at the Galleria is great. Lots of great restaurants in and around the Hotel. It is centrally located. Near tollway and LBJ it's easy to airport, downtown,and nightlife. The gym is a must. The rooms are beautiful , modern, and spacious. I would recommend to my friends.

Being located/attached to a major mall, galleria, has great benefits for your hotel guest. Considering many restuarants have limited hours, it might be nice to incorporate a continential breakfast for guest, instead of relying on the local bakery. Besides that small detail, I loved the luxury stay.
Thank you for a great experience!

My wife and I have stayed at the Westin Galleria Dallas for years. It has been our special getaway but, this stay was an exception. There is no longer anything special about this Hotel. Our stay was for my wife's 50th birthday. I requested room amenities upon arrival and there were none. The receptionist at the front desk did make amends with chocolate strawberries but only upon request. The Hotel elevator area had a foul odor (sewage) and was pervasive in the elevator during use. Our room was not what we expected of a Starwood Preferred Hotel. It was hot and the temperature could not be controlled with thermostat. For the number of Starwood Points charged this Hotel was a disappointment. Further, I was embarrassed because we had another couple traveling with us who were as equally unimpressed with their stay. To the Hotels credit your Valet service (bellman/auto valet) did a fine job. But that was the only plus. A former Hotel fan who is Truly disappointed.
