Great business hotel with top-notch customer service
11 miles outside of downtown

Like most Westins, this Park Central hotel is comfortable and spacious, with guest rooms boasting cozy Heavenly Beds and spa-worthy bath amenities. However, if you're in town on vacation, recent guests recommend that you book elsewhere. The Westin Dallas Park Central's location in North Dallas (about 11 miles from downtown) is not the most convenient for tourists. Business travelers, on the other hand, should take a closer look at this property; the business center makes working on the road less of a hassle, while the Westin Dallas Park Central's 30 meeting rooms and its proximity to several industry headquarters make it an ideal convention location. If you're in town to do some spending, consider this Westin property for its proximity to both the NorthPark and The Galleria shopping centers. Although many visitors say that the guest rooms are outdated and in need of a deep cleaning, most note that the customer service here is top-notch. Plus, Marriott Bonvoy members can use points to cover the room rate.
