My stay was a positive one but nonetheless I had mixed emotions about the NYLO Plano. Note that I only stayed for one night and was in fact only at the hotel for 12 hours, with a very late check in and an early departure the next day, so I didn't get to experience the nightlife/fun public areas of the hotel which include a great-looking pool and outdoor bar scene and a restaurant that looked pretty cool as well (I have heard from others that the pool area gets really crowded and is really fun so I was disappointed to miss checking that out...I just walked around it at 5 in the morning before checking out!_. At $90 a night I did think it was a good value and also just a fun experience for anyone interested in design; at the price it goes up against Residence Inns, Homewood Suites, etc., and if you are used to staying at those properties, this makes for a fun departure for a night or two. Rather than a bland big box hotel, it is super modern and quirky. The lobby and public areas are very "designed" and kind of fun though not really my taste. The service (at least what I experienced during my quick trip) was great: super fast check-in and check-out. I wasn't crazy about my room: it was fine, clean enough, but the poured cement floors are a bit cold and the bathroom left a little to be desired and the lighting isn't great (and there is no closed-off closet - just a rod with hangers - which is a pet peeve of mine). The oversized windows and loft style is fun though - I just wouldn't want to stay there for more than a night. The desk area and the lighting isn't an ideal set-up for a business traveller who has to put in some hours during his or her stay...I also wouldn't want to stay there with kids (at least not in the room I was in: the layout just wasn't right). All that being said, the outside/facade of the building is gorgeous with a beautiful brick facade and tall cypress pines - the look was kind of reminiscent of New York's Bowery Hotel. It's right off the highway and across from what seemed to be a gigantic shopping center so I would think the location is good too. I didn't use the gym but I looked at it and it's nice. In conclusion, definitely worth a try depending on the purpose of your stay and if you are remotely interested in design, you will find it interesting no matter your taste!
