This is an old property in the Oak Lawn area of Dallas which is close to the Park Cities/SMU and Downtown. The main areas of the Melrose are well maintained and it is obvious why so many special events are booked for this hotel. Our room was adequate, but the bathroom needs remodeling. For a historic property, the rooms are rather large. The sitting area and bed were very comfortable but the bathroom seems to have been crudely updated in the 1970’s with a console table to serve as additional counter space and an inadequate mirror (i.e. no additional lighting to help with makeup and no full-length mirror). Also, the tub/shower had a very thick fabric shower curtain and no lighting. All of the windows were horribly drafty and you could hear street noise – especially sirens during the night from the fire station across the street.
One of the main reasons that we stayed here was for the historic bar in the hotel. On Friday night, the Library Bar was a very nice atmosphere. It was a refined, older crowd. However, on Saturday night, the bar patrons were a different story. It was much younger “neighborhood” crowd, packed and loud. My husband was shoved from behind at the bar and the minimum wage “security guard” did nothing about it. The on-duty management also was hard to locate and then she also did nothing and implied that she was not concerned about hotel safety. It was rowdy – more like a night club than a hotel bar. I cannot imagine that a hotel would rather cater to the neighborhood crowd than the guests that are paying to stay in this hotel. A manager did call my husband a few days later to apologize and say that he would review how the situation was handled. But the damage was done and we remain very disappointed by our experience at this hotel. We would not stay here again, let alone recommend it to a friend or business colleague.
