I have been in a total of five weddings, including my own. During my time as a bridesmaid, I have had a few awesome experiences and some experiences that were not as great. So, when the time finally came for me to be a bride I knew exactly what I wanted to do to show my appreciation for my bridesmaids, mother, and future mother-in-law. I have also come to realize that days leading up to the wedding are almost always the most stressful (for everyone…including some of the guests). Therefore, as a gift for my bridesmaids and the moms, I wanted to gift them with an experience rather than a tangible gift. For this gift, I chose to have a spa getaway the day before our wedding at one of the most best known and most luxurious 5-star locations in the area, Hotel Crescent Court.
Our experience having a spa weekend getaway at Hotel Crescent Court did not just meet; but rather exceeded all of our expectations! We all loved every bit of it. If I was forced to redo any aspect of my wedding weekend, I would not change a single thing. Here are my five reasons why I would book another girls only Spa Getaway at Hotel Crescent Court in a heartbeat.
Great Prices for the Quality of Service
There are quite a few luxury 4-star and 5-star hotels in Dallas, TX. All of which offer elegant suites and most of which offer great spa amenities. After doing some research, I found that Hotel Crescent Court offered the spa services I wanted to give my bridesmaids and mothers at a more reasonable price than other hotels of the same (and sometimes lower) caliber. Because their prices were so reasonable, I was able to pay for even more spa services that I was originally planning on purchasing. I ended up giving everyone a 50 minute massage, a 50 minute pedicure, a 25 minute manicure, and a 50 minute facial.
The prices for the rooms are also more reasonable than expected. I was also able to afford an the astonishing Uptown Suite on the top floor for an overnight stay. But more on this awesome suite later.
The Spa is Amazing
The award-winning spa is located in the lowest level of the Hotel Crescent complex. As we arrived in the 22,000 square foot spa we were immediately greeted by an associate who gave us a tour of their state of the art facilities. These facilities include: steam room, dry sauna, hot tub, cold tub, showers, lounges, and a weight room/workout facility. Of course the Hotel Crescent Court offers a wide variety of spa services. But we highly recommend the Rose Grand Cru Facial, the French Clay Detox Body Therapy, and the Stone Therapy Massage.
A wide variety of wellness/fitness classes are offered at the Hotel Crescent Court Spa. There are a wide variety of fitness classes for all levels of fitness. We recommend the Yoga Stretch, Body Balance, and the Core and More Sculpting classes.
The Uptown Suite
In previous weddings, other members of the bridal party and I stayed have always stayed at a hotel the night before. However, often times there was never really enough space or beds for everyone, so a few people had to sleep on the couch. Trust me, it is never fun when you are staying in a suite at a 4-star to 5-star hotel and end up sleeping on the couch. So, with my wedding, I wanted to avoid this situation at all costs for my bridesmaids.
The Hotel Crescent Court stood out to me as I was doing my research; because when compared to other hotels of the same caliber in the area, the Crescent had more affordable suites. To top it off, compared to the other hotels, I found that Hotel Crescent Court had suites that were more like apartments. When I read about the amenities for The Uptown Suite, I knew this was the suite that we needed. This amazing suite is two stories and includes; 2 bedrooms (each fully equipped with King sized beds and TV’s), 2.5 bathrooms, a large dining table, living area, a sun room, butlers’ pantry, coat closet, and exquisitely large landscape windows. If you are looking into a nice staycation with a few of your girlfriends, we highly recommend you look into the Uptown Suite (get the one on the 7th floor).
It’s so quiet
Not enough can be said about how much I appreciate quietness. There have been so many times at other hotels where we could hear people in the halls, arguments about “lack of communication” in the room next door, and even noise from outside. Despite it’s location in the middle of Oak Lawn, we had no trouble at all with ambient city noises bothering us during the day or waking us up in the middle of the night. As far as noises in the hallway, we never heard anyone in the hallway. Really truly, the only ambient noises we could hear, were the sounds that other members of our party made as they moved around in the suite taking care of their own business. It is easy for us to conclude, that the lack of external noise was the absolute linchpin for our wonderful stay at the Hotel Crescent Court.
Stunning Interior Design
Picture stunning 1920’s Art Deco Design but with a more Modern twist. You have just imagined that lovely interior of Hotel Crescent Court. The interior designer (waldrop+nichols studio, llc) has truly outdone themselves with creating one of the most welcoming designs we have ever seen. The natural lighting in the grand foyer and the guest rooms offers guests with a sense of genuine happiness as if the weight of the world has momentarily been lifted off your shoulders. We can honestly say, that (until our stay at Hotel Crescent Court) we have never experienced a hotel that has a genuine ability to call us in with its interior design saying “Come, get away from all your worries of the world and sit with us. Relax, all will be well.”
