Serendipity! that is what we found at the Blue Cypress Hotel in Arlington Texas.
Our trip was in celebration of my son's 21st Birthday. He is a sport enthusiast.
The location was close to all the major attractions Dallas Cowboys NFL stadium, The Texas Rangers MLB Ballpark, Six Flags Hurricaine Harbor water park. Also near some of the best dining areas imaginable.
When we first arrived we thought the place was closed there seemed to be next to no vehicles. However as we stepped up the adobe coloured entrance way we had no concerns as the remodelled lobby was quite impressive.
The Staff were exceptionally polite and very accomodating. The hallways were wide and well lit. Our room was clean, modern and basic yet covered all our needs. (free WiFi, TV, microwave, bar fridge, AC, bathtub/shower combo and hair dryer.)
Housekeeping was awesome and timely.
As we explored the hotel facilities we discovered an absolutely amazing gym! It was just like a full membership facility with weights, several cable machines an entire upper deck with at least 2 dozen cardio pieces from treadmills to elipticals, there were two pools one indoor and one outdoor which was a delight in the Texas heat.
The out door pool was well equiped with lounge chairs, tables with umbrellas and a bar which was open after 6PM with live band entertainment. However the upstairs bar and patio was open at 4PM for those wanting a kickstart to the eve. There was a full fledge pool party each evening with lots of dancing and a different genre of music each night.
The morning provided a complimentary breakfast which served a variety of cereals, breads and pastries and the option to make your own waffles in the the shape of TEXAS, Seasonal fruit, various juices and of course coffee.
The only issue we had was the awkward access ramps and spurs (roads) to the hotel initially... if you are renting a car and driving from the airport get the GPS to save you bouncing on and off the hwy and interstate and the oneway switchbacks.
Definitely the choice of stay when we are ever needing to go between Dallas and Ft Worth or catching a sport event.
