Last weekend at the Family Travel Conference, I had the opportunity to stay at the brand-new Omni Dallas Hotel, which celebrated their one-year anniversary while we were there. I’ve stayed in dozens of hotels over the last two years, and have to say that this hotel has some of the most fun room features I’ve ever seen in a hotel.
In-mirror televisions in the bathrooms
I’ve seen televisions in hotel bathrooms before, but I’ve never seen a television build right into the large bathroom mirror. I was able to put morning tv shows on while I got ready in the morning, which was great for multitasking.
Green energy features
Like the rooms on the Disney Fantasy, the Omni Dallas rooms require that you place your room card in a small slot by the door for the electricity to work. I actually enjoy having my card in a safe spot, and it’s nice to know that there is no wasted energy when guests leave the room.
Television greeting upon check-in
When I arrived in my room (and put my room key in the slot), the television displayed a welcome message with my name. It’s a small feature, but such an inviting one that definitely makes you feel welcome immediately after you arrive.
Omni Select Guest features
All Omni Hotels offer this complimentary program, which gives guests access to free WiFi, a complimentary overnight shoe shine, and choice of up to 2 beverages, directly delivered to your room. While the room also includes Wolfgang Puck Coffee and a brewer, it’s nice to have fresh hot coffee delivered. It was great to wake up to this treat.
