Introduction: A Short, but “Suite” Stay in Dallas

Review: Gen Korean BBQ House

As I stated in the introduction to this trip report, I have stayed at the Marriott Suites in Dallas before. The stay was almost a year ago, around the time that I started the blog.  I enjoyed the hotel but felt that the review needed to be update because there were some things that I missed.

Booking

I booked a single bed King suite for $117/night at the government/military rate.  I used my Marriott Rewards credit cardto pay for the stay. I was able to earn 4,494 points (3,127 base points, 585 credit card points, and 782 elite bonus points as a Marriott Rewards Gold member).

Arrival

The hotel was located just off of the North Stemmons Freeway.

Check-in

The front desk was to the left when I entered the hotel through the main entrance.  (The picture below is not my best, take it for what it is. LOL)

There were one guest ahead of me,  but with three agents manning the desk, I was helped immediately.  I was welcomed back to Marriott and thanked for being a Gold member.  The agent informed me of lounge access and breakfast in the lobby restaurant for two. After a few minutes, I had my keys in had made my way to the room.

Room

The room was allergen free.  I appreciated this because my son and I are allergic to various things.  The room was the same as my last visit.  I really liked the layout. The living side of the suite had a sofa bed, desk, television, and a small table.  It also included a closet that housed a safe and mini fridge.

The sleeping area consisted of a King bed and television. The bathroom could be accessed from the living area or the bedroom. The only thing missing, which is not a big deal, was a standalone bathtub.

Dining

There were four dining options at the property.

Verandah Lounge

The bar was located in the lobby, to the right of the front desk. It was by far the most popular place in the hotel.  The bartender was very nice, he kept everyone smiling throughout his shift.  The bar menu is a shortened version of what a guest would find at the lobby’s restaurant.

Allie’s American Grille

Allie’s was located in back of the lobby bar.  I did not see one guest eat at the restaurant.  It looked nice from the outside.

Lounge

The lounge was located across from the bar.  It had 24 hour access.  The food consisted of fruits and snacks.  There was also cooler filled with juice, water, and yogurt.

The Market

The Market was located behind the front desk.  It contained items that you would find in a convenience store…snacks and toiletries.

Fitness

The fitness center was located down the hall from the lounge/lobby bar area. It appeared to be a regular guest room from the outside.  I was surprised to find such a nice gym in a relatively small space.

The pool was located outside.  I did not take pictures because it was either 1) raining or 2) filled with guests.  It was a standard hotel pool.

Final Word

I enjoyed my stay at the Marriott Suites at the Medical Center.  I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quick stay in Dallas.
