Politicians, including George W. Bush and Colin Powell, have made this huge glass-and-chrome complex their home away from home. The rooms are standard, but the Anatole has seven bars, a nightclub, and a piano bar to keep you entertained. The public spaces feature a massive collection of fine Asian arts and antiques. The massive property tries to offer on-site everything a traveler needs—especially a business traveler. You'll need a car or hired transportation to take
you to the nearby American Airlines Center, the hospital district, or Downtown.
