The hotel itself is what we expected. It has a modern decor, and not a lot of luxury. We stayed in a king suite, and it was much more that we needed. It has a bedroom, living room, kitchen with full size refrigerator, dishwasher, even dishes to use. If we were staying for a week or so, that would have been great. We have stayed at Aloft before, which is the same company, but an even more minimal, modern style hotel, so it's a nice change from the average hotel. This hotel was near much. It is a short drive from DFW, but it is in an industrial/ commercial type area. You need a car to stay in the Dallas area anyway, so it's not that big of a deal. The hotel staff was very friendly.
