I was in the Dallas area to visit relatives, but also to add one more Four Seasons under my belt. So I took some time out of the trip to stay at…
Four Seasons Dallas.
Just about 15 minutes away from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and 20 minutes to downtown Dallas, Four Seasons Dallas is situated in an ideal location no matter if your trip is for business or leisure.
Since it was a short, less than 24 hour stay, I just had a carry on backpack with me. My relatives parked the car in the parking lot and we walked into the hotel I could check in and say our goodbyes. We were greeted by a few doormen as they were assisting other guests.
Walking through the doors, my eyes immediately went to the grand floor to ceiling windows and impressive Christmas tree. The lobby was nicely decorated for Christmas with red and green lights and gingerbread houses (for a competition!) too.
To the right was the concierge desk and to the left, the reception desk. I made my way to the left for a fast and easy check in process. If you do have to wait, during winter there was hot chocolate available and for kids, a tent and table with coloring pages.
Upon entering my room, a fun welcome gift was waiting on the table. Candied pecans, tortilla chips and salsa… fitting for Texas!
Four Seasons Dallas has 431 guest rooms across both The Tower, connected to the lobby and The Villas, which are separate buildings surrounding the golf course.
My room was in the Club Villas, about a five minute walk from The Tower, and right by the first hole of the TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas golf course. There’s also transportation (golf cart) service to get you to your room.
The rooms in The Villas are slightly more spacious than guest rooms in The Tower. There was more than enough space for me and my few things for a night with lots of closet space.
A comfy king size bed.
My room also had a balcony with two chairs and a table.
If you’re on a business trip or just want to check in, the room is outfitted with large desk and office chair.
There’s a coffee maker and coffee available along with a large selection of snacks and drinks for purchase.
As with a majority of Four Seasons properties around the world, there are L’Occitane bath products.
The marble bathroom had a shower, tub, two sinks and toilet.
There was also a good amount of counter space and had a hairdryer, bath robes and body weight scale.
My room was on the second floor of the villa. Out on the balcony, I could see the TPC golf course through the trees and the pathway for golf carts or pedestrians.
At night, being away from the main Tower, it was quiet and peaceful with just lights from faraway buildings.
Afternoon tea is served at the hotel! Read the full review of afternoon tea at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas here.
Breakfast is served at Cafe on the Green, in the Tower overlooking the resort’s pool. On weekdays, breakfast is served from 6:30 am to 11 am and on weekends from 7 am to 11 am.
There’s the option of a breakfast buffet or ordering a la carte.
I opted to order an acai bowl, orange juice and breakfast tea since I had limited time and wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the selection of food at the buffet.
Also note on Sundays there’s a Sunday brunch from 11 am to 2:30 pm!
Around The Hotel
Four Seasons Dallas is a resort so there are endless things to do and there’s sure to be something for everyone!
Starting with dining, there’s first, Cafe on the Green for either breakfast, lunch, dinner and or special holiday dinners, buffets or brunch. The Terrace Lounge in the lobby serves lunch, afternoon tea and cocktails and there’s Bar 19 close by.
Two other options, Racquets and Agave Pool and Bar are open seasonally for meals and snacks by the pool. And of course there’s in room dining available. If this isn’t enough options or you just want something else, there are restaurants in proximity to the resort.
Golf is what this resort is known for. As a guest of Four Seasons Dallas, you’ll be right by the TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas golf course, where the AT&T Byron Nelson tournament is held every year. You can book a tee time and play the 18 hole, par-70 golf course or brush up on your golf skills with a private lesson at the golf school.
I had the privilege of spending an hour with Mr. Cusick, Director of Golf Instruction to evaluate my golf swing. I hadn’t played golf since traveling around the world (so about three years!) so it was a really helpful lesson to get back into the game! Mr. Cusick is also the author of a book, The Four Keys to Improve Your Game.
Those who love swimming are in for a treat! There are four pools at Four Seasons Dallas. Agave Pool is the main pool that you can see from the lobby. There’s also a family pool with a ‘beach’ in addition to an indoor and spa pool
Tennis enthusiasts are also fortunate as the resort’s tennis facilities are ranked as one of the top in the country! There are indoor and outdoor courts, clinics and private instruction available.
Fitness Center and Spa
The Sports Club at Four Seasons Dallas was recently updated with a 6 million dollar renovation! The club open for Four Seasons’ guests and club members only.
As you can imagine, the club is packed with plenty of weight training, cardio and fitness equipment, a half-court basketball, track, racquetball court, rooms for a variety of classes, and much more! And there’s the Well & Being Spa which offers facials, massages, a salon and treatments and even acupuncture!
You seriously won’t be bored at this resort. And the fun doesn’t end here! Ask for a jogging map for a 2-5 mile jog starting at the resort.
Free WiFi works well throughout the entire property.
With a never ending list of things to do at Four Seasons Dallas, even during the winter months, my only complaint is my trip was too short!
I think this is a perfect option for those thinking about visiting Dallas. It’s close to the airport and city center, but the resort is also a destination in itself. What more could you ask for?
Plus it is a Four Seasons property, just one more down and many more to go in my attempt to stay at or dine in every Four Seasons property in the world.
