Magnolia Hotel Dallas, a boutique hotel downtown, is next door to the flagship Neiman Marcus. If shopping isn't enough sport for you, there is a small fitness center. While the fitness room is bathed in sunlight, it has fairly creaky cardio machines, with only an overhead television. The free weights weren't much better - a limited range, in bad shape.

PeachSuite Hotel Supply, where you can get simple solid sheets. And if you encounter sheets on your travels that you like, you can find them here. Chains like Holiday Inn and Holiday Express get their Hotel Supplies here, so you can buy the sheets you like. Peachtree is also a Hotel Amenities Supplier to chains like Country Inn and Suites and Comfort Inn so you can get their soaps and lotions. This is also the place to stock up on dinnerware, glassware and flatware for extra guests at holiday meals.
Omni Dallas Hotel. To counteract the oversized margaritas and slabs of dessert on my recent trip to Dallas, I spent some serious time at the fitness center. Dallas season. These were their actual lives. I turned down the volume on my iPod and eavesdropped.
