Our girls sports team was originally staying at another hotel in the area, and at the last minute we were switched to the Courtyard Dallas Allen. Best move we ever made!! This hotel is beautiful! The lobby is large and spacious with several areas for congregating. There are a couple of alcoves, one with a television and couches. One of the best amenities is the courtyard itself with a fire pit, gazebo, and comfortable seating. It was the perfect place for after-game dinners and relaxing! The rooms are large, clean, and have no odors. The beds are extremely comfortable; Marriott has the best beds, I think, in the industry. The hotel is conveniently located to the freeway/interstate, within walking distance of shopping and restaurants. It is about 25 minutes to downtown Dallas in good traffic. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. There is a bar at the back of the lobby which also serves food. I had the best tuna salad sandwich on sourdough--I even ate there two nights in a row! In addition, they have other sandwiches, soups, salads, etc. The only downside (which is not a showstopper for me) is the parking. There are not a lot of places to park around the building, so you have to park in the parking deck across the street. There is no charge to park there, and most of the time I had a spot on the bottom floor right near the exit, so I didn't have to really walk any farther than I would have in a parking lot. However, one night when there was an event at the Allen Convention Center (next to the hotel), I had trouble finding a spot. But this would not stop me from staying at this hotel. I will definitely stay here on any future trips to the area.
