Happy Monday, babes! I hope you’re all having a great start to a new week. Our little family will no doubt be a little sluggish today as we come off a spring break week full of vacation, sports, and an anniversary celebration.
As promised, I have a full review of our stay at the Hotel Crescent Court today. Travis and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary and had the privilege of staying (sans kids) one night at the Crescent. Originally we had plans to travel to Paris, but we decided to postpone that trip because of COVID. So, even though we weren’t abroad, our Crescent stay was just what we needed to unwind and celebrate the past 10 years and all we’ve been blessed with.
Dallas Hotel Review: The Crescent
Being from Dallas, we are pretty familiar with the Hotel Crescent Court. We’ve both been to the Crescent for various events and conferences, but neither of us had actually stayed at the Crescent. If you’re from Dallas, you know that the Crescent is truly one of the most beautiful hotels in Dallas. It has a French-Renaissance facade, an elegant foyer, a beautiful rooftop pool, and gorgeous outdoor spaces perfect for weddings!
One of the nicest things about the location of the Crescent is that it is right in the middle of so much! You can walk to Uptown, to Klyde Warren Park, the Katy Trail and several museums. There are so many great restaurants and bars on the premise or near the premise, that you barely have to leave the hotel to experience Dallas.
The rooms are all upscale and boast of an elegant, modern-like design. They are clean and chic. When stay in one of their rooms or suites you quickly realize that they thought through all of the tiny details to make your stay the best. For example, each bedside table has multiple plugs, and motion activated lights to light the ground at night so that you don’t trip. The television tucks neatly into the wall, but then it can pull out and rotate to wherever you may be. The rooms also have a lounge area and a desk if you need to work. A perfect layout without feeling too over crowded.
It seems crazy, but the Crescent has 13 on-property restaurants/bars and all are great! These include restaurants like the Crescent Club, Nobu, Sixty Vines, The Conservatory, Ascension Coffee & Wine Bar, Moxies, Shake Shack, and more.
The afternoon tea at the Crescent is delightful. The whole experience includes luxury tea selections, tea sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and house-made preserves, and an assortment of tea cakes and pastries. They also have an option to include champagne as well.
The spa at the Crescent hotel is most definitely something to write home about. The 22,000 square ft spa & fitness center includes a whirl pool, a hot tub, a sauna, and a nail salon. I’ve been several times to get my nails done and they truly create an environment that’s calming and serene.
We don’t typically travel with Mia, but we totally could have because the Crescent is a pet-friendly hotel!
Afternoon Tea for Two:
We kicked off our stay at the Crescent with the Afternoon Tea (with champagne of course!). I thought I’d have to talk Travis into it a little bit, but we honestly both enjoyed it so much. The tea selections were incredible – I got the herbal mint tea and Travis got their customer favorite, Bali. They were both so good.
We were also truly amazed by how good their tea sandwiches were and their desserts were so good we had to force ourselves to only eat a couple bites of each so we could taste all of them! We loved that the tea was right in the beautiful foyer and yet it was still so intimate. We spent the entire hour and a half laughing and talking.
I will definitely be going back to do the tea with girlfriends as soon as I can! It’s a great way to celebrate a special occasion, too! The table next to us had 10 girls celebrating one of their 18th birthdays. It was so fun to watch!
Check-in, Unwind, and Explore:
Our tea finished by 3 and we checked into our room. My sister had sent a bottle of champagne to our room, so we used the next hour or so to just unwind, unpack and relax. Honestly, the rooms are so nice that it’s very enjoyable to hang out in your room.
Dinner at Oishii:
We had early dinner reservations at Oishii at 5:45. Truth be told, we tried to get into Nobu and several other restaurants in Dallas, but we just waited to long to get a good reservation. We were beyond impressed with Oishii though! The sushi was truly incredible and we had one of the best rolls of our lives – The Thanh Scallop Roll; We highly recommend it! I will say though that if you don’t like truffle, you probably won’t like the roll. The other roll we ordered that was different but also really good was the “Caesar Roll.”
After Dinner Drinks:
We debated going to the Bowen House for after dinner drinks as it was just a short walk. But, we got lazy and decided to just enjoy the beautiful bar at the Crescent. So, we each ordered a drink and watched March Madness and talked. Honestly, it was perfect!
Coffee In Bed:
Although the Crescent has an amazing room service menu, we both intermittent fast, so we opted out. We did however enjoy coffee in bed and just read and worked without the added noise of kids. It was perfect.
Explore the Hotel:
Once we go up and moving, we decided to explore the hotel a little bit. I showed Travis the beautiful rooftop pool and one of my favorite rooms for events – the Garden Room. We also watched a wedding party prep for their wedding later that day. It was such a sweet morning!
All in all, we were beyond impressed with the hotel staff’s hospitality and kindness, the hotel amenities, and the hotel itself. If you’re looking to stay somewhere nice in an ideal location, I highly recommend staying at the Crescent Hotel!
