Recommended Hotels
PwC office is downtown across from Klyde Warren Park with several hotel options within a 10-minute walk:

• The Fairmont – a little older but a good value for a full-service “nicer” 4-star hotel (~$150-200/night)
• The Sheraton Dallas – a massive 4-star convention hotel, a straight shot walk to the office (~$125-175)
• The Hyatt House Uptown – solid location and friendly service for a more economy 3-stay hotel (~$100-125)

Higher end hotels like the Ritz Carlton, Hotel Crescent Court and Hotel ZaZa if people want a nicer ($300+) experience
