As you drive along I-35E in Dallas away from the looming skyscrapers of downtown towards the design and hospital districts you will find a large iconic building overlooking the concrete freeway below. After having changed owners over the years, the Hilton Anatole welcomes guests with it’s usual best in class service that you would expect from urban resort style hotels. What makes this large resort different from many is that it is in the heart of the urban part of Dallas and not surrounded by golf courses and lakes but instead efficient for the business and urban traveler.
The property is immense with 45-acres, 1,606 guest rooms and suites. It almost looks like two distinct campuses with enough convention and ballroom amenities in the center. There is an extensive art collection that folds itself everywhere you look within this hotel. From the moment you check in to when you wander the halls and even the small touches in your suite, you are exposed to about 1,000 wonderful pieces of both western and Asian art.
