Disclaimer :: The Fort Worth Moms Blog and City Moms Blog Network received complimentary and discounted services from Omni Dallas Hotel. The writer’s opinions, however, are her own.
In the fall months, I attended the City Moms Blog Network conference in Dallas. (Yay for a short travel time!) Nearly 100 of us CMBN ladies gathered for a focused time of business planning, encouragement, and even some relaxation at the lovely (and I mean lovely) Omni Dallas Hotel. While enjoying yummy food, excellent grounds and facilities, and THOSE rooms (and robes!), it occurred to me that I did feel like I was on vacation — working hours aside, ha!
There is something about unplugging from your daily routine, capturing moments of quiet, eating food you did not cook that makes you relax and rest easy. You do not have to be on a long car ride or plane flight away. Why don’t I take advantage of all the metroplex has to offer? Of course, there are many staycation spots right here in Tarrant County. These are certainly on my list too, but here’s why the Omni Dallas Hotel is a contender for my — and your — summer plans.
Not So Far, Far Away
The Omni Dallas Hotel sits right in the mix of downtown Dallas. It is approximately a 50-minute drive, give or take a few minutes and traffic jams. This is a great spot for a couple’s getaway or a girls’ weekend or a — wait for it — a chance for mom to slip away solo for a night or two. In all instances, you are “away,” but not that away if your family should need you, or if your current family dynamic doesn’t allow for you to be away for many nights. The close proximity to Tarrant County also means the travel budget is safe and sound. You won’t even use a tank of gas to get there! (Or use public transportation, Uber, etc.!)
Welcome to 23 stories of luxury and customer service! There’s the fitness center, Mokara Spa and Salon (need I say more?), infinity swimming pool and terrace, 24-hour dining, gift shop, business center, televisions in the bathroom mirrors, Kindles for guest use, laundry/dry cleaning services, valet and self parking, WiFi, in-room fitness kits, and on and on and on. You certainly will not go hungry with numerous dining options: Bob’s Steak & Chop House, Texas Spice, The Owner’s Box, Uptown Terrace, Morsel’s, Lobby Lounge, and my personal favorite, guest room dining. You will never need to leave the hotel! However, if you do, the hotel is wonderfully located, as mentioned above, in the heart of Dallas with museums, shopping, and more places to dine nearby.
Family Friendly? YES!
The Omni Dallas Hotel is not an adults-only destination, believe it or not. The location alone makes it an ideal spot for visiting the Dallas Arboretum, Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Klyde Warren Park, Dallas World Aquarium, and such. The hotel itself offers lots for the kiddos too. You already know the pool is top of the destination list along with a quick “try” of the fitness room. I bet you didn’t know, though, about the hotel’s Sensational Kids program. Young guests “receive a backpack brimming with entertaining and family-friendly health and nutrition themed games and goodies to promote healthy eating while on family vacations. The backpack includes: activity book with healthy snack recipes and fun games, twisty tomato straw, memory match-up cards, and crayons.” And when the complimentary cookies and milk arrive at your room on the first night, you know your kids will never want to leave!
Yes, the Omni Dallas Hotel is great for couples, gal pals, a solo trip, and a family getaway, but it is also a fabulous location for weddings, events, and meetings. The CMBN certainly enjoyed our weekend there!
