Luxury Car Service in Dallas

Hi, first time posting in the Travel&Dining part of this site-- great resource!

I'm looking for a car service in Dallas I can use hourly next Friday, probably only 3 or 4 hours, Hotel to Concert and Concert back to Hotel...

Googling around finds me nothing but pimped out stretch hummers with neon lights... I'm not interested, or into that.

I'd really like a simple Mercedez S500, and prefer not to have a town car. I'm expecting it to be 40-60$ an hour or so?

Anyone had any good experience with anyone in the Dallas area? Clean cut and courteous, no 'weirdo' in the front seat poorly dressed?

Thanks!

We (my business associates and I) swear by Myphen - I can't remember his last name or the name of his company (card is at the office), but you can reach him at 469.438.6065

He doesn't have a sedan - but he has a very nicely outfitted SUV - leather interior, always has cold beverages on hand, and very pleasant gentleman.

The key will be getting him if its a weekend night... he is popular with the suburban set when we want to go downtown and tie one on.

Several years ago I used to use Amini Limousine quite a bit for town car service to the airport and they were very good, very professional. I'm not sure if they have a Mercedes, and they were charging about $50 to $60 for a 35 minute trip to the airport, so I would expect your hourly rate might be a little higher than your range.

No clue... I would suspect he is in the $50/$60 range.

We've used him to drive us to Cowboys games a couple of times (pick us up, drive, drop, pick up after game in limo zone, drive back to 'burbs) and its run us around $150. He is the neighbor of my business partner so I'm not sure if we get a "friends & family rate" or not.

I know with us, we've set up before where he knows we will be somewhere a few hours so he can do an airport pickup or two while we are at our event.

I'm sure you could cut a deal if you had a set price in mind... he's an enterprising guy and always after the extra buck. His mother-in-law cleans our houses now and he & his cousin relandscaped my entire backyard. The kid will be a millionaire one of these days.
