W Dallas Victory Treats This Platinum Member Right

The W Dallas Victory is a category 5 hotel requiring 12,000 to 16,000 for a free night depending on peak season. I booked the hotel for a short stay in Dallas since it is close to the American Airlines center and other convenient businesses in the area. I’ve been staying at W hotels for years, ever since my very first stay at a W hotel in San Francisco, but they are always different.

Out of the cab I was greeted instantly by the bellman who grabbed my roller bag. Not that I needed help, but it was nice to take advantage of the help after a long flight.

At the time of my stay I was a Starwood Preferred Guest Platinum member. I didn’t use the Platinum certificates, not that I could have used them anyway, because it was a quick business trip.

So I was given a designated standard King room complete with a letter from the General Manager. The welcome amenity was a Fiji water, almonds and chocolate covered pretzels. The pretzels were a nice sight to see since I was famished from a long trip to Dallas.

The King bed was as comfortable as ever. It was almost like sleeping at home since I picked up the W bed on 40% off a few years ago.

The bathroom was weird. It was connected to the bedroom and only divided by a curtain. So you enter into the bathroom and then the main room once past the curtains. It didn’t bother me because I was alone, but with another person could be bothersome.

Bottom Line

The W Dallas Victory is in a convenient location to sports and business events. If the price is right with a corporate rate, I would likely stay here again. The location and service was fantastic for my short business trip.

  1. Glad that you were happy with your stay. IME, the W brand is reliable, comfortable without being intrusive and, if someone else is paying the bill, usually a reasonably good price. What continues to annoy me about this brand and most others is the additional charges for simple drinking water and reasonably WiFi access. IMO, those two ‘amenities,’ over and above everything else are essential, basic service just like heat (or AC) and clean linens. Until they stop those charges I will Never Be Satisfied. Never! (Please forgive my rant; those are just my two issues and they will not go away.)

  2. No Fly Zone – Totally understand. Wifi is essential these days. It is a standard benefit for elites like breakfast is with Hyatt hotels top tier status. Will be interesting to see this evolve as a benefit but one thing is for sure it is bringing in revenue for the hotels and airlines.

  3. Well, you should have been offered a suite upgrade if a standard suite was available at the time of checkin.
