If I had to guess, I would say this hotel used to be an Embassy Suites. It has the large atrium with the rooms located all around it. It would explain the layout of the room, also. Anyway, the husband and I were in town to see the Rangers. The hotel is close to the stadium and on the trolley route, when the trolley decides to show up. It was the only problem we had with our weekend, and it certainly was not the hotel's fault. We noticed on our first night that once the trolley is full, it bypasses the other hotels. We waited over 25 minutes the second night of our stay for a trolley to show up - and this was only because the hotel called to say there were lots of people waiting. We usually stay at a hotel that is within walking distance to the ballpark, but I forgot to make a reservation! The free trolley was a factor in our decision to stay here.
As for the hotel, we enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean and nicely furnished. I enjoyed having a suite so I could sleep later than my early riser husband! The bed was comfortable, and we both got a good night's sleep. I very much like having a comforter on the bed, which this room did not have. The "suite" part is furnished with a sleep sofa, chair, coffee table and desk. It was nice to have lots of room. Housekeeping did a good job - our room was clean and towels replaced. We discovered the drain in the tub didn't drain very well, which we told the front desk about. It had been fixed when we returned after the game. Internet connectivity was fine in the sitting/desk room, but not so great in the bedroom. The air conditioner worked well and kept us comfortable. I am not a fan of hotel shampoo and conditioner, but I forget to pack my own. As usual, the hotel-supplied shampoo dried out my hair. We ate at the hotel restaurant, which was surprisingly good, except for breakfast. Breakfast was included in our rate, but I don't call bad coffee and stale coffee cake breakfast. There was not much at all to choose from. I suggest the restaurant stay open a bit later on nights the Rangers are in town. We arrived back with ten minutes to spare, so we were able to order a sandwich to take to our room, but people who took later trolleys went to bed hungry. The restaurant was adamant about not serving after 11 p.m. They lost out on a lot of business that night, while the wait staff lost out on tips. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, answering all of our questions about local restaurants and the trolley. The club room for club members is a joke. Expect nothing so you won't be disappointed. The refrigerator is locked, so there is no access to bottled water, which is not the case in other hotel club rooms. All in all we had a pleasant stay, but I will most likely not return based on the trolley system. As I said, we had to wait 25 minutes for a trolley to show up, and we missed the first half-inning of the game. On the return trip, the lines for the trolley were long, long, long. I prefer to be in charge of my own transportation, and walking is my choice. If I have to be in Arlington for business rather than leisure, I would stay again.
