“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

We spent five days here with a grandson during his spring break. The location has easy access to any sites of interest in Dallas and Fort Worth. The entire place looks to be very recently updated with pleasing colors, decor, and furnishings throughout. The staff were courteous and helpful. We enjoyed the excellent breakfasts and the early evening socials.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

This hotel should be so much better than it actual turned out to be. The location is very convenient to Arlington restaurants, shopping, and the interstates 20 and 30. It is about 15 minutes from Six Flags, the Cowboys, and the Rangers. The hotel is new and has a fresh appearance inside and out.

However, someone really made some building errors with he mechanical equipment, layout, and furniture choices. The first floor rooms have spotlights right outside the windows which are difficult to keep from leaking in. Water drips from upper floors making pinging noises for about 15 minutes after anyone above you uses water. For our unit, 127, there is an air conditioning unit outside that sounds like it is 100 years old. The beds are not comfortable and incredible squeaky. Rolling over in bed is like a quake struck and I couldn't imagine the noise if you wanted some fun time with the spouse.

The breakfast buffet is average with instant eggs that taste metallic. The Sunkist Orange Juice is very good.

The staff was rather complacent. The pool was out of service for two days due to a chemical imbalance. The indoor pool area is very stuffy and chlorinated.

Overall this is not a top choice to stay until Marriott redoes some of the basics of this place.

Room Tip: I would avoid the convenience of the first floor at this paricular hotel to avoid noise and light po...

Spent three nights, I did not find the staff friendly or overly helpful. The area is right by mall so many restaurant choices and shopping. Did not really seem to clean room just left fresh towels. Had to ask and wait for towels over an hour. Just not the customer service I was expecting after the reviews I read here.

This hotel is exactly one year old and still looks and feels brand new. The suite is modern and very clean. The bed was very comfortable with clean smelling and nice feeling sheets. The bathroom/vanity area was very nice--granite counter tops, wood shelving with towels rolled up and put in individual shelves in the bathroom. Many places to hang the towels after a shower. The kitchen was very pretty and had everything you might want to use. Loved how the flat screen was on a swivel base so it could be turned to be watched in either the bed or on the sofa.
The breakfast which comes with your room was nice and hot and have a good choice of items: oatmeal with different things to put on it, scrambled eggs, sausage, potatoes, bread, bagel, waffles, fresh fruit (red raspberries and pineapple,) yogurt, cold cereal, a variety of types of milk, juice and coffee. They kept the tables clean and the food full in the containers.
We thought this was one of the nicer Marriott's we had stayed in not counting a JW or Marriott Resort. Very nice property! We will definitely stay here again.

The Residence Inn Arlington South appears to be either brand new or recently extensively refurbished. The appearance inside the hotel is very modern and clean, and does not show the signs of wear and tear often evident at Residence Inns and other extended stay hotels.

I had a two bedroom suite shared with a friend. The room was plenty spacious for a short stay, but the bedrooms were a bit small in which to maneuver around. This is the first time I had stayed at this Residence Inn, and the first time in several years I had stayed at any Residence Inn. The rooms seemed smaller than I remember. I also remember that in at least one location, there was a desk in one of the bedrooms - there was none in either bedroom in this location.

The location of the hotel is in a commercial area near The Parks of Arlington mall - an area that is still plenty busy but appears to have seen better days. For those arriving from the south or southwest to see a Rangers or Cowboys game, the hotel is not a bad choice for lodging - it is a 15 minute drive across town in generally well flowing traffic to the stadium complex. There are plenty of dining options nearby, and a Costco just down the road.

I stayed for 3 nights this past week. New hotel ( october 09) with a very nice finish out. Plenty of dinning options near by, and a great social hour. Please note while not a 5 star hotel in the true sense, for what you pay it's a terrific value.
