“Overnight stay for Travel Agent and Family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

My family overnighted in Dallas/Fort Worth en route to Cancun, staying at Residence Inn Dallas DFW Airport North/Irving on March 26, 2014. I chose this hotel based on its courtesy airport shuttle, breakfast, and price.

Upon our late arrival at DFW airport, I placed a call to the hotel to request the courtesy shuttle. The front desk person, "Guy", was very pleasant over the phone and was able to provide clear instructions on where to meet the shuttle driver, "Johnny". Johnny arrived in a very nice and comfortable GMC suv approximately 15 minutes later. We enjoyed our trip to the hotel. After we checked in and delivered our baggage to the room, Johnny drove us to a nearby restaurant for dinner. He also returned us safely to the hotel for a comfortable night's stay.

The room was clean and well-furnished with a queen bed in the bedroom, decent-sized bathroom with vanity and sink located outside the toilet/shower area, two flat screen TVs, kitchenette, work desk, sofa bed and chairs.

Breakfast was provided in a large room near the lobby and offered all you expect--waffles, fruit, yogurt, breads, etc.

We scheduled a return shuttle and another efficient and friendly driver (whose name I cannot recall) delivered us safely back to the airport the next morning.

Overall, a very nice place to stay. It did appear that some remodeling is going on in various areas of the hotel, but nothing that interfered with our stay. We did hear planes flying overhead despite being on the first floor. The hotel is located in an industrial park, so most restaurants and shopping are a distance away. The hotel courtesy shuttle, when not in use picking up/dropping off guests at the airport, is available to take you anywhere within five miles of the hotel, thus offering a wide variety of places to eat, shop, etc.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone seeking a nicely furnished and comfortable room in an airport hotel near DFW.

When you landed at DFW and called for the shuttle. We were picked up by an unmarked small SUV (ask for the make, model and color). We waited about 30 mins from the time we landed because we missed him the first time. It took about 10-15 mins to get to the hotel. The vehicle fits 5 with carry-on luggages or 4 people with lots of luggages. After dropping of our luggages we went to our favorite seafood restaurant for dinner. The driver gave us a courtesy drop-off and pick-up for our dinner. We had a great experience with our 1 night stop over at this hotel. There is a basketball court, BBQ grill with nice patio furnitures and a tiny pool. Other basics include a small gym, business center and snack for purchase.

This hotel is in a business park area. It took us a while to find it, but once we did, we were happy ! comfortable rooms and nice bathrooms. Standard RI breakfast. The front desk staff is very friendly and hospitable, especially Shannon and Anita. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to be close to DFW and have some space !

I travel a lot for business and most hotel staffs are generally nice and polite. However at Residence Inn Dallas DFW Airport North/Irving they treated me like a close family friend. I felt welcome and never wanted for anything.

Residence in is usually my 2nd or 3rd choice when I travel for business except when I go to Dallas.

This Residence Inn and the staff simply make getting in, staying, and getting out as easy as possible. They are exceptionally hospitable and helpful in every way. The rooms are what you expect from a residence with plenty of space, the kitchenette, and well taken care of by the cleaning crews. The hotel provides a variety of week night dinners that are well done and hit the spot after a long day. They have a flexible shuttle service until 11pm that makes getting to and from the airport convenient. Across the board, the staff seems to work together as a team and the guests are always treated with great care. I've had a few extended stays at this property and would highly recommend it!

This is a very convenient location to stay for my business which is within walking distance to the hotel. Very isolated location though unless taking the hotel van which I believe is offered to local malls etc. The staff has always been helpful beyond expectation, stayed here many times. Sadly the property is getting a bit dated and last visit my bed just wasn't helping me get a good nights rest. They have been working on the exterior and maybe they'll continue on the inside soon. Breakfast is descent, evening reception becoming a bit minimal but a great, safe location if you have business in the area.

Thank you for your recent stay with us! We truly appreciate you choosing to stay with us when your travels bring you to the DFW area. We also would like to thank you for your kind comments about or team, we are very lucky to have outstanding people. Being centrally located here in the Freeport Industrial park is certainly a big asset to our corporate clients that work nearby, whether that is Northrop Grumman, FAA, Allstate or CSC. It is convientely located to both 114 and 635 state highways within a mile drive and can get you to any number of locations within minutes. We do offer our shuttle, when not in use going to and from DFW Airport, to take our guests out for some leisure time, whether the be dinner just down the road or for a movie or day out shopping just down the road at the Grapevine Mills Mall. Thank you for noticing some of the changes we have started making to improve our product for our guests, including our new changes to our Gatehouse, as well as some new additions to our rooms. Thank you so much for taking your time to share your experience here with us, and we look forward to serving you again in the future.

The hotel is located right near the airport. You are going to hear noise.
Negatives:
-- Upon entering the room, the temp inside the room was 62 degrees. It was 30 degrees outside. When you are giving out rooms, please ensure it's at an acceptable temp level. It took a couple of hours for the room to be tolerable.

-- No coffee pot in the room. All of the ingredients were there but no coffee pot. We asked twice, left a note but never received copy.

-- Card readers on the doors do not work properly. We were told of the "secret maneuver" to make them work by the front office desk staff. Fix the readers please.

-- Front office desk was poorly dressed: he had rips tears in his shirt and was not professional in dealing with us at all. I think we interrupted him from his Halo 3 game or internet porn surfing.

-- Door to the bathroom did not shut properly. When it's business time I like a little privacy. Fix the doors please.

Full disclosure: I am a Marriott Elite Rewards member and stay at Marriott properties whenever I can. That being said, I will NEVER stay at this hotel again. It was easily the worst experience we have had at a Marriott property. I contacted the Mgmt and they were to give me some additional rewards points. Like all things at this property, it was not taken care of and it's been over a month now. Oh well.

Thank you for your stay with us and expressing your concerns for the issues you experienced during your stay. This is not what we expect or strive for, for any of our guests stays. All of the issues that you experienced have been corrected. I can assure you on your concern of our desk clerks distraction that our security features on all of our computers prohibit inappropriate material from use. We strive to deliver a great guest experience for all of our guests for every stay, and I am sorry that we did not meet your or our expectations. I appreciate your feedback, because without loyal Marriott Rewards Members like yourself giving us this feedback, we would not be able to improve. Thank you so much for your valuable feedback.
