Reservations must be made no later than April 28. Visit the hotel’s reservation site for the event, or call 1-888-627-8191. Identify yourself as being with the Boy Scouts of America. These are the only ways to ensure your reservation will be confirmed at the BSA’s negotiated rate.

Guest room rate is $159 plus tax. A deposit in the amount of the first night’s room and tax will be charged to your credit card at the time your reservation is made.

Parking will be discounted 75 percent off the hotel’s standard rate, currently $23 + tax for self-parking and $31 + tax for valet parking, for those who identify themselves as being with the Boy Scouts of America. In-and-out privileges will be included only for overnight guests.

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is approximately an 18-mile, 45-minute drive from the hotel. Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has an Orange Line that makes a direct stop at both Sheraton Dallas and DFW Airport, making it easy for guests to get to and from DFW and the hotel; this ride takes a little less than an hour and costs $2.50 per trip or $5 for an all-day pass. The hotel recommends taking Go Yellow Checker Shuttle at a cost of $19 per person one way from DFW Airport to the hotel, because this shuttle service makes a regular stop at the Sheraton Dallas every half hour. No reservation is required to board a Go Yellow Checker Shuttle from a “shared ride” area at DFW or for the return trip from the hotel to DFW. Cab fare is typically $50 to $55 one way from DFW.

Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) is approximately a 7-mile, 15-minute drive from the hotel. Super Shuttle costs $19 one way; no reservation is required to board a Super Shuttle van outside of the baggage claim area at Love Field, but a reservation is required for the return trip from the hotel to Love Field. Cab fare is typically $16 to $20 one way from Love Field.

Business casual attire is appropriate for all functions. Business casual includes khakis, golf shirts, or other nice slacks and shirts. No shorts. Dallas temperatures are typically between 60 and 85 degrees during our conference dates, but the hotel is expected to be cool all the time.
