As an airport hotel, it's great; as a business hotel it's fine. The DFW Airport Marriott may not be a good family hotel, but it's great if you're coming in for a conference. There is a pool and a workout room, but due to its location in a business/industrial park area, this is not a location where the family could fend for themselves while you're in meetings. I did spot one lonely Subway sandwich shop across the street, but you'd need a car to get to any other restaurants or shopping outside the hotel. There is a Hertz rental car desk in the lobby. But the airport shuttle seems to work well, if you plan to fly in to DFW. It's always available, and there's an airline gate departure electronic board behind the Hertz desk, as well as a computer that will print your boarding pass, so you don't have to wait for an available computer in the business center.
The lobby/bar combo is busy in the evening, standing room only when conferences are at the hotel. There's a mail drop and an ATM just to the right of the check in desk. Lobby bathrooms are to the right and behind the lobby bar.
The large rooms are typical very nice Marriott, and extremely nice as far as airport hotels go! The hotel fact sheet says there are robes in the bathrooms, but I certainly didn't find one, nor a shower cap. Bed headboard did have a reading lamp attached. Ice machines located toward the end of each hallway. I usually really like the ultra soft Marriott beds, but this time I couldn't find the right pillow, so I didn't sleep well. I did hear planes in the early morning, but the sound was so muted, it was more like white noise. Not an issue.
There is free wifi in the lobby, though not in the rooms or conference rooms, unless your conference purchased that option. For me, this was disappointing as I couldn't access my bedtime reading book on my IPad! However, on Friday, wifi suddenly popped up free in all areas. I didn't know if that's a weekend thing, or if it was just a fluke.
Plenty of free parking surrounding the hotel.
The hotel is near the north airport entrance, so if you're driving in from Dallas, you can go west on Northwest Hwy to Hwy 114. Go north on 114 to Freeport Parkway. The hotel is on the corner. If you are highway phobic, you can always take Royal Lane west to Freeport Parkway, and the hotel is about one block to the left of that intersection. Just be prepared to crawl through the many business park areas common in the west part of Las Colinas.
Overall, this is a very nice hotel, lots of marble floors, stairs, counters. Clean bathrooms. Lots of business conducted in the lobby. But not special with thoughtful touches, and not much here for families.
