Here's a great touch for high-end travelers to Dallas: Starting in December, The Ritz-Carlton in the Texan city will offer complimentary round-trip transportation in a private sedan or town car between the hotel and either Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport or Dallas Love Field (DAL) Airport for guests staying in its eighth-floor Ritz-Carlton Suite. The perk is a first for guests of the suite, which also features access to The Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge, located on the seventh floor of the hotel.
We hear the suite is a top Dallas pick for VIPs in town: It has hosted royalty and heads-of-state as well as Hollywood celebs and sports stars. It has a master bedroom, private study, a kitchen (with a private service entrance) and a dining room that can seat eight guests (good for families or small groups). Bonus: The suite can connect to other rooms and can be the cornerstone of a multi-suite wing for larger gatherings.
The Club Level lounge, meanwhile, includes complimentary food and beverage offerings and a dedicated concierge, but we're most intrigued by the Friday Night Flights— a rotating presentation of snacks and drinks (think signature Texas beers, cheeses from nearby creameries, handmade Texas salsas, local jams and preserves, and decants of Texas wines). The weekly event is available to Club Level guests every Friday evening from 5:30 – 6 p.m. in the Club Lounge, so be sure to set an alarm and get there early.
