I was just a little concerned with mixed reviews for the Omni Mandalay but, as usual, there turned out to be no reason to worry. From the free parking to the polite and friendly staff to the beautiful comfortable room, my stay was great. I understand the comments about the hotel needing some renovation- it kind of reminds me of the Adolphus before that renov. However, my room was large with a beautiful view- I could see the renowned Mustangs of Las Colinas- and 2 full size, comfortable beds with a variety of pillows. The bathroom, despite an older tub/shower and sink set up, was more than adequate with nice amenities and plenty of hot water and good water pressure. I was on the 18th floor, away from elevators and it was very quiet- I didn't have any problems with noise. I thought about taking the hotel shuttle over to the DART light rail station on Sunday morning (when I was heading over to meet friends in Dallas) but it was a short easy walk, despite construction along O'Connor and Lake Carolyn Boulevard. Service at the M Bar was friendly and prompt and the limited food offerings were more than enough since I didn't want a full meal in the main restaurant, Trevi's. I didn't make it to the pool area but it looked very inviting. Overall, this is an Omni property that I would recommend and would revisit.
