Rated 2 out of 5 by SPGLoyal Not Up to Par
The only positive thing about this W is the great location. It's walking distance to many venues nearby. As a loyal Starwood customer, I am extremely disappointed with the quality of the hotel room at W Dallas. The room decor felt cheap, and the bathroom & shower area is no better than a motel. There is not a comforter in bed, but only a thin bed cover, so it's very uncomfortable. Staff service was standard just like all Starwood hotels, with nothing extraordinary. The girl at check-out was rude and very cold. I guess it was too much for her to smile or even say good morning. It is awful to start a brand new day with someone so unpleasant.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tim409 A mixed bag...
Hotel facilities and staff are top notch. However, during the 6 night stay, the staff appeared to be stretched way too thin during the convention I was attending [even though the W was not an official hotel]. I had to call to have my room serviced several days, as the maids did not show up. My Federal Express and Faxes were never delivered, I had to investigate to get them several days later. My wake up call came two hours early. Other than that, service was friendly and reasonably good. The highlight was the fantastic corner suite, with awesome views.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JohnsCreekSPG Watch out for the Valet Parkting
Called down to the Valet 20 minutes before needing my car (at 6:50 am). Upon arrival to the Valet area, the individual working the counter had not moved to get my car. After questioning why, he stated he needed the ticket number, which had already been provided. I repeated the number multiple times and nothing was done. After waiting another 20 minutes I offerred to go behind the both and get my keys. Finally, the Valet said "sure" and I found my keys (with the correct number previously provided) in approximately 2 minutes. So much for a Valet and Plat SPG member status. Great times for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hawking It was what I feared
The facility was impressive upon arrival and the staff at the entrance and front desk was very professional.
The room was a bit worn with chipped, water-stained furniture, some debris in the closet and just in need of a refresh.
The icemaker on the floor wasn't working, the hallway was in need of a cleaning and dishes sat outside several rooms for hours.
While I am not grading the hotel on the ambiance, for I was well aware of what I getting into...it is worth noting. This isn't a hotel, it is a nightclub with rooms. The music in the lobby and elevators was too loud and simply overbearing.
The location is very nice, with close access to the AAC and uptown. However, the chaotic, unpolished nature of the hotel will prevent me from visiting again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by January STOLEN COTTON BOWL TICKETS
I'm an avid business traveler and stay at a Starwood property at least twice a month. Last Friday, January 6, was the first time I stayed at the Dallas W. Flew in for the Cotton Bowl. My tickets for the game were hand delivered to the hotel Thursday by a colleague, because she'd had problems in the past with clients not receiving items dropped off at the Dallas W, and wanted to assure me the tickets were there. Upon arrival, I was so excited for the game that I checked in and went directly to my room to get ready for the game. Remembering I needed to pick up my tickets, I called down to the front desk. They said "we'll send the package right up." I jumped in the shower but when I got out still no tickets. So I called down to the front desk and they said "let us check on where the package is and call you back." Ten minutes later, I called back again and the same thing happened. After three phone calls and no package, I walked down to the front desk and was told there was no package. I immediately got my colleague on the phone, and she spoke directly with the manager to explain the situation and the level of service that happened then was frightening. Never in my lifetime of staying as W hotels, have I ever witnessed a staff that was so unwilling to help. Not one sorry was offered up. No solutions to get/find my tickets. Just a "they're not in the back." Finally, the night crew arrived so I was able to speak to a woman who said she received a package the night before. She actually said, "I received tickets last night" and then said, "Well, I don't know if they were tickets but there was an envelope." Long story short, the W hotel agreed to reimburse me for face value of the tickets. Today, I'm still working to resolve the situation because they want to give me a gift certificate to their hotel instead of cash. As a gold member of Starwood and a frequent business traveler to Dallas, I'm ashamed for the W hotel. This is no way to treat any guest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheWolf Service of champions
Unforgettable service seems to be the W Hotel's standard. The two breakfasts I ordered came quickly and tasted delicious, and the gym was clean and designed well. The front desk and the Whatever Whenever service even was able to retrieve a bag from my car and bring it to my room without a problem. Thank you for making my introduction to the city of Dallas amazing. My only complaint is that the pool closes at dark. I understand the safety concerns, but a rooftop swim at night would have made my trip complete.
