Hilton – DFW Lakes Excecutive Conference Ctr.

Hotel Review

One of my clients held a major meeting event recently at this property and I was there for a one-night stay related to a presentation I was making at their conference.  This property couldn’t be more conveniently located to the DFW airport and has free shuttle service that takes only about 10-15 minutes from door to door.  This is a premier property with great facilities – both leisure and event wise.  They have an excellent fitness center, tennis complex, outdoor and indoor pools, and a nice lounge and restaurant.

My presentation was in their large “Val Verde” amphitheatre meeting room with a nice hi-tech set-up and supremely comfortable seating for the audience.  It can accomodate audiences up to 250 people and, of course, they have a huge selection of other conference and meeting rooms, as well.  Their executive floor has a nice lounge, the Tuscan Lounge, that serves breakfast and heavy hors d’ouevres and drinks at night.

All the staff I interacted with were top-notch and my client, who was having a week long meeting there with about 150 attendees, was very pleased.

Final Grade: A

Points and Dollars

The best part of this stay was that it was paid for by my client.  Actually, I did not expect to earn any Hhonors points as the charge was made directly to their group account and I did not think that was eligible for points to me.  However, when I checked my account on-line, my Hhonors points were there!  I earned 2,710 base points plus my two 50% bonuses (Diamond and MyWay) of 1,355 each plus 1,000 bonus points for the Q1 promo and 1,000 bonus points as my Diamond on-property benefit for a total of 7,420 Hhonors points.
