I stayed here for a company leadership conference. I arrived the day before the conference and got to the hotel around 5 pm from DFW. Once I went to my room, got settled, and relaxed for a little while I changed clothes and wandered around the hotel grounds for about 90 minutes taking close to 100 pictures of the artwork. Mostly they are sculptures and pieces of art from China and Japan, and many have dates on them from as far back as the 1500s and 1600s.
My room was functional, large, and comfortable. Nothing really fancy but it sufficed for my purposes of staying the night before checking out at 7 am on the TV to head downstairs to my conference. The bed was comfortable and I fell asleep quickly. The bellmen were very accommodating (both AM and PM shifts) in storing bags for a great majority of the 1300 attendees of my all day conference.
I knew in advance that the food was expensive, even for being on an expense account, and so I walked about 3/10 of a mile down the street to Denny's for dinner. The neighborhood was safe.
As far as conference food, the Hilton catering department did a pretty good job. Continental breakfast consisted of more than just danishes, toast, and coffee. There was oatmeal, smoked salmon, various fruit, bagels, and more. Our lunch was delicious! Had beef medallions in gravy that were simply great. I wanted more than just two, and probably could have gotten more, but didn't want to appear to take advantage of our company paid meals. The snacks at breaks was different each time we came out of the conference ballroom and I would imagine the catering staff tore down one set of snacks to start the next set as soon as we were locked back into the ballroom, with as much food as there was each time.
My wife and I are going to fly back to DFW soon so that she can see the artwork in person. We'll probably stay at a cheaper hotel around the Hilton and walk to it, as the room prices are too rich for me.
The one con I found was the lack of adequate transportation options in the neighborhood. No DART light rail stations or bus stops around that I could see so unless you rent a car you're kind of stuck once you take SuperShuttle or a cab from either DFW airport or Love Field.
