I recently had to attend a trade show in Dallas. I was late booking and everything downtown was sold out or very expensive. As a last resort I booked the Hilton Hotel in Arlington. Turns out this was a great choice. From this hotel you are going the opposite way of the heavy traffic morning and evening. By avoiding 8 and 4 I was able to get to the Dallas Convention centre in 25 minutes at a cost of $35. It was much better than airport locations.
The hotel was great. The rooms are what you expect from a Hilton and the front desk staff was great and the Valet guys were awesome. Free shuttle from and to the airport was great, 15 minutes each way. Bar is great with great staff. If you get bored Boston's Next Door is great too.
I had to host a small meeting and catering did a great job. We showed up with only IPads to do our presentations. The hotel didn't have an IPad connector for the projector so the AV guy ran over to B Buy and picked one up. The meeting started on time in a first class facility.
I was there in late January. I can only imagine that in summer time this place rocks with tourists going to 6 flags, baseball and then the occasional football game.
Only negative is that Hilton reservation system is now brutal. Very awkward and makes me feel that I just bought a used car from 'Shaddy's'. Come on Hilton you are better than this. Your hotels are classy so treat them this way. The time share sales pitch at the end of every booking just isn't Hilton style.
I would definitely return.
