This Dallas landmark has graced the downtown skyline since 1978. Three levels of activity top the 50-story structure, which are encircled in a dome of lights. The triangle formations of the structural cylinders encase the elevators that carry passengers to the top levels in 68 seconds. For the more actively inclined, an 837-step stairwell is located in the middle of the tower. Over 200 lights add shimmer to the geodesic dome, which can be programmed to form an infinite number of patterns. Some of the more famous include "The Electric Moon," "Texas Raindrops" and "Dallas Disco Fever." The tower opened in 1978, just two years after construction began and only five years after its conception. The Lookout is the lowest of the upper levels and provides both an indoor and outdoor observation area. Visitors can view many points of interest throughout the Dallas area from 360-degrees.
We went to the lounge for drinks. Great experience. I had their signature Margarita and it was wonderful. We had a windo table and the view is spectacular,we were there at night. Definitley reccomend visiting the lounge for a cocktail,and we were wearing jeans!!!!
I made reservations for this restaurant a week in advance and had minimal options for dinner, so if you are planning on visiting make sure you reserve at least 10 days in advance. The view was amazing, the staff were very friendly, tended to our needs, but they were busy, so the food took a long time. One side note, this place is not cheap. These are the prices right of my receipt - 1 NY Strip 63.00, 1 Pork Chop 36.00, Sparkling Water 8.00, Calamari 16.00, Side Veg. 8.00 and 2 Daiquiri's 26.00, 2 Tea's 7.00.... Bill total before Tip 175$ w Tax. I'm not complaining, I just want others to be aware that its not your typical Friday's restaurant, but you have to consider how many times you get the chance to eat at a place like this if you don't live in Dallas.
Another thing I was not happy about was that the amount that posted to my credit card was not the same amount that was on the bill, which I'm not so happy about. Overall, my experience was great and my girlfriend love the view. I would suggest going (if you decide to) right before sunset so you can see the city lit with natural light and then at night with the city lights.
The dress code is business casual and you will get turned away if you are not dressed accordingly.
We wanted to go to have drinks, but were denied entry because one of us were wearing a nice pair of shorts. Now, I could understand if these shorts were torn or shaggy, but give me a break- it has only been 100 degrees for the last week in Dallas. So, we went down the street and spent $300 on drinks.
Way to go Hyatt, you not only lost money but a customer.
BTW- the shorts were from Saks and were $120.
And, no, none of you are that frickin important for such a ridiculous dress code. Grow Up-it's 2011!
My Austrian exchange student wanted to go up in the tower. It was closed to their entire group of 20+ two years ago. I was checking to be certain that it was open before bringing her from Crowley on Friday. I'm glad that I checked. Thank you all for telling us that Dallas continues to give visitors from everywhere a 'thumbs-down' to their landmark.
I called before I drove all the way there & they said that the observation deck is CLOSED! its not even open at all, so much for trying to get a view of your own city! NO STARS!!!!!!!!! only put one star because it was required to post this!
You can only go up if you want to drop an arm and a leg at the Wolf Gang's Ego Deli. After dropping $5 for parking, we found out it was not open to the public. Wow. Hope the place goes bankrupt. Had to tell my son it was off limits. Nice to see I have to do some research to find out that the icon of Dallas' skyline is for the the upper crust exclusively. At least in San Antonio we can go up in the tower for a small fee.
Me and my wife stayed at the Hyatt next to the runion tower and it was open, You can no longer just go up and sight see it's for reservation only for the restaurant. It was kinda high priced so all we had was a desert which was awesome. Will go back any day just for the view and the desert.
After checking the website for hours and recent reviews we was on our way (over 55 miles one way).After reaching the tower we found out it you had to have reservations. Explain that to your daughter for her birthday.We did go to the JFK museum which we would highly recommend. Their website is very informative and the people working there are very friendly. Reunion tower could take lessons.
