Review Summary



  • Far from Downtown Dallas, and few public transportation options
  • No in-room Wi-Fi (just wired Internet, for a fee)
  • Fee for valet parking
  • Fee for pets
  • Some complaints of loud plumbing

Bottom Line

HILTON DALLAS PARK CITIES COMPLETED A MAJOR RENOVATION IN 2013. WE WILL UPDATE OUR REVIEW AS SOON AS WE CAN. The mid-range 224-room Hilton is located on the northern edge of University Park, an affluent area along Dallas North Tollway. Clean, spacious (if slightly bland and dated) rooms come with flat-screen TVs, and bathrooms come with shower/tub combos and Peter Thomas Roth toiletries. Opio Restaurant serves upscale American cuisine in a Tuscan-inspired space with vaulted ceilings, and the pleasant fitness center has lots of natural light and modern machines. But there's no in-room Wi-Fi (just wired, for a fee), and the location is far from the more tourist-friendly downtown area.

On the northern edge of affluent Park Cities area, close to shops and restaurants -- but far from all tourist attractions

Map of Hilton Dallas Park Cities

The Hilton Dallas/Park Cities is located on a small residential street off the Dallas North Tollway, in northern University Park. There are few things to do in the area, but it’s a couple of blocks from the intersection of Preston Road and Northwest Highway, where most of the businesses are. There are also several upscale stores and fast food restaurants within walking distance of the hotel to the east. However, there are no public transportation options anywhere near the hotel, just a couple of buses that take over an hour to get to anywhere in downtown Dallas.

Park Cities encompasses Highland Park and University Park, two of the most affluent communities in the US, and an upscale shopping hub. The heart of this area is the Southern Methodist University, which stands on a huge campus off Highway 75 in the southeastern corner of University Park neighborhood. There are many convenient stores along its southern border (Mockingbird Lane), on the eastern edge of it, and on Greenville Avenue, on the other side of the highway.
