Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Location is not within walking distance of any area attractions
  • Bare-bones fitness center only has 3 cardio machines
  • No on-site lunch or dinner options

Bottom Line

Chances are if you're considering the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Dallas Central - Market Center, you're not looking for much more than an affordable place to sleep -- and there's nothing wrong with that. The rooms are clean and in good condition, the beds are comfortable, and there's a free buffet breakfast -- standard in all Holiday Inn Express hotels. The main downfall is the hotel's location -- downtown Dallas and all area attractions and restaurants are a drive away. If you're here for the Market Center, this is a great budget option. But if you're a business traveler less concerned with value and want to be closer to the action, consider staying at the Crowne Plaza Downtown instead.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Located among a strip of economy hotels in Market Center, a quiet (if slightly seedy) area within driving distance of downtown Dallas

Although it's only about a five-minute drive from Downtown Dallas, Market Center feels like the middle of nowhere. An area of highways and large shopping centers, the main attraction is Market Center, the largest wholesale retailer in the world. Texas Love Field Airport and the Southwestern Medical Center are in the area as well.

  • 9-minute drive to Texas Love Field Airport
  • 19-minute drive to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport
  • 6-minute drive to the Sixth Floor Museum and Dealey Plaza, the site where JFK was assassinated
  • 6-minute drive to Texas Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys
  • 7-minute drive to shopping and restaurants in Dallas' historic West End District
  • 7-minute drive to Dallas Market Center
  • 9-minute drive to the Dallas Museum of Art
