We spent the week end in Dallas and wanted a hotel close to airport. Have never stayed in an Element before but definitely will again. The staff was efficient and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and very clean...and while not what you'd call warm and cozy, with the fridge, microwave, utensils, dishwasher, etc., it would be perfect for anyone looking for an affordable extended stay. Breakfast was nutritious with something for everyone..hot or cold. This hotel has everything the higher priced hotels have but at a reasonable price.
