Amazing Hotel. Perfect Location

Dallas, Texas

I checked into The Surrey yesterday with my wife and two children (10 and 13). We had an early flight from Dallas and did not expect to have our suite ready at noon. Much to our collective surprise, we were upgraded to a corner suite on the 15th floor. The room is massive, and full of natural night. The staff has been super accommodating to my entire family. The location is incredible, with quick access to prime time shopping, Central Park, and great neighborhood restaurants. If you are looking for a great hotel, in a great location I highly recommend The Surrey.

Exquisite experience

Walhalla, South Carolina

I arrived for a short stay, and I had high expectations considering it is a 5 star property and the reviews were excellent. i am a very particular person, and I am pleased to say that The Surrey did not disappoint for my first stay. The front desk staff were efficient and very cordial. The decor merited its five star rating, worthy of comparison to the finest European hotels. The white and black as a palette with the stylish and modern furnishings gave it a very Coco Chanel ambiance. The room itself was perfection. The Duxiana bed is an item I will look into purchasing for myself, because it was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. I enjoyed the in-room dining experience as well. I needed to work en suite before my day, and the delivery was fast and the food amazing. I will definitely return for another visit.
