“Several other hotel a lot less expensive and just as close to attractions.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Was expecting the something for the price and was so unexpected that it is a typical room minus a fridge. Beds are very comfortable yet could stay a week at the Holiday Inn or others surrounding with all the free transport and even free breakfast than here. Thats coming from a person that got my room for free!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I certainly understand the desire for a complimentary breakfast. Marriott has several other locations just North of us along Lamar that do offer a complimentary breakfast. The Fairfield Inn, Springhill Suites, Residence Inn and Towneplace Suites. The Courtyard by Marriott brand has the Bistro concept and does not currently offer a complimentary breakfast, as you are aware. Our property is located in the Arlington Entertainment District, within walking distace to the Texas Rangers Ballpark and the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, which is why our rates are typically higher than some of the other hotels in the area that are not. The City of Arlington does offer a complimentary shuttle for the hotels located in the Entertainment District to many of the area attractions. I apologize if you were not made aware of this. The shuttle picks up many times per day in the front of the hotel and offers to/from service to these attractions. We are in the process of adding the mini refrigerators, that you referenced, to our rooms. We have approximately 35% of the hotel that are equipped with them and have many additional that are available upon request. All sleeping rooms will be equipped with them later this year as we are getting a complete rooms renovation.

Thank you again for your time in completing a review. I am glad you were able to utilize a complimentary stay at our hotel.

My room was clean, the hotel was great and the staff were very nice. It is close to the football field. I was staying there while working at Arlington Memorial hospital. This is the closest Marriott to that hospital for you Marriott Rewards members. There were some decent restaurants around the hotel, but I chose to go down cooper street which is like 3 blocks west of the hotel. I headed south for awhile and found a mall with a cheesecake factory. It was a 15 min drive. I imagine there are plenty of decent restaurants around Tom Landry drive or the opposite side of the highway. The down side is that it can be kind of slow there when football season is out. Six Flags Amusement park is close as well.

Room Tip: I asked for a door away from the elevator

Thank you for taking the time for the great review of our hotel and the surrounding area. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed our hotel and found our staff to be helpful. As you are aware, we do have several restaurants in close proximity to the hotel but I wanted to let you know that Texas Land & Cattle is opening in August next to the hotel. The area you metioned where the Cheescake Factory (one of my favorites) is, is the Arlington Parks Mall.

Thank you again for the review and for choosing the Courtyard by Marriott - Arlington Entertainment District.

This is a nice Courtyard with an updated lobby. The gym is typical - one good treadmill, 2 old treadmills, an elliptical and a bike. Rooms are quiet. I would stay here again.

The location of this hotel is perfect! Walking distance to the Texas Ranger's ballpark, Cowboy stadium & 6 Flags. There were lots of restaurants close by. The room was clean. The hotel did have a breakfast bar, which was ok. We tried to check in early, but the hotel was completely booked & no rooms were ready. We also asked if we could leave our bags with the bell desk, but there isn't one. We ended up leaving our bags in the car where it was over 100 degrees!

Thank you for choosing the Courtyard by Marriott - Arlington Entertainment District. We do our best to accomodate early check-ins but as you mentioned, with our close proximity to both sport venues and theme parks, we sometimes are at capacity and need the time after check-out to clean our guest rooms. Although we are not a full service hotel and do not have a bell desk, our front desk does routinely store luggage. I apologize you were not notified of this and I will ensure I review this issue in hopes that future guest are made aware of this service. Once again, thank you for taking the time to write a review and choosing to stay at our hotel.

Sincerely,

Jeff Durham

Staff friendly. Rooms and hotel very clean. As a gold elite member of Marriott I did not feel any different than any other guess. No real acknowledgment of my customer loyalty, no additional perks provided. No breakfast included in rate.

Thank you for your loyalty to the Marriott brand as a Gold Elite member. Offering a complimentary breakfast is a business decision our brand has struggled with for quite some time. The direction we have chosen to go, as a brand, is to add the new Bistro option that we recently added in our lobby. Although not complimentary, I do believe we offer many wonderful options at a great price points. If your travels bring you back to Arlington, please contact me and it would be my pleasure to offer a complimentary breakfast to your stay so you can try our new Bistro.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

Recently spent several nights here while in business in Arlington. I have stayed before and the location and convenience makes this a great spot. The staff were friendly and helpful when needed, the updated courtyard look is refreshing. One area for improvement would be the beverage selection in the pantry..diet pepsi is good but for late PM guests, a diet lemon lime or root beer would be greatly appreciated. I was upgraded to a suite room and the extra room was lovely. The free WIFI is always a plus and quiet air conditioning units permit a good nights sleep. Will stay again when in town.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are always quieter for sleeping.

This hotel is great for the proximity to Dallas Stadium, but that's about it! No refrigerators in the room, very small oddly laid out room (with the TV to the side of the bed, not at the foot of the bed), NO continental breakfast (and no restaurants within walking distance to get breakfast), highly priced Bistro in the lobby (very limited menu with ridiculous prices) a "Market" in the lobby (which consists of vending machines & a microwave), thin, scratchy towels, no exhaust fan in the bathroom and the paint was chipping and peeling over the tub. I have stayed in much cheaper, lesser known hotel chains that provide more amenities than this Marriott. We will never, ever go back!!
