We absolutely loved this property!. Details follow, but full disclosure first - I'm a platinum member with Hyatt and a part-time travel agent who books group travel. I like to get great quality and negotiate it for a very fair price. Also, this stay was "on points," so we didn't actually pay for the room. That said, the whole family whole-heartedly recommends this property to anyone staying the the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, whether you have business at the airport or not!
This was our first stay at the Grand Hyatt. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and had our two kids along. We love a couple of hours from the metroplex, so we drove to the hotel. It is in the D Terminal at the DFW airport. We have previously stayed at the Hyatt Regency, which is in a different terminal. That was a nice property as well, though not quite as updated when we stayed there in the summer of 2011.
The staff was incredibly accommodating - in my room request, in my roll-away bed request (their roll-away is legitimate; not your fold-up uncomfortable variety), with professional smiles, courtesy, and demeanor in every area - front desk, cafe, house keeping, dining, etc.
The rooms are very newly remodeled and ultra sleek and modern. Automatic shades and sheers raise when you enter the room. All electronics - window treatments, lights, thermostat - are computer controlled via several remote keypads throughout the room and bath area. As clean as you will EVER find anywhere, and very pleasing and clean-feeling decor. I hate to say it, but the 42" LED TV had a better picture than mine at home.
We asked for a runway view (even-numbered rooms), and the kids loved watching the planes take off and land. The adults did too, especially considering that the room is essentially sound-proofed.
Starbucks-quality complimentary coffee in the cafe. Be prepared to pay a fair amount for breakfast in the restaurant (around $15 per person). Our schedule allowed us to eat for about $20 total by choosing pastries from the cafe.
THE POOL IS AMAZING! Try a night swim, with beautiful colored lighting and views of the runways. The gym is also first rate with somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 ellipticals and treadmills, at least 10 weight machines, free weights, Pilates equipment, a sauna, and full spa (extra charge, by appointment). Cardio equipment also has fun views of the runway.
I did have to ask specifically at the desk for parking passes, which make exiting the airport free, but that is a great perk for all guests. Parking is in the D Terminal parking lot, or you can valet park in front of the hotel. We did not do valet, so not sure of what that charge is.
The Grand Hyatt was really just our overnight home, for the purpose of attending a Ft. Worth Symphony concert and eating nearby at our favorite restaurant - Kirby's Prime Steakhouse in Southlake. We recommend these as well.
I really have nothing negative to say about the Grand Hyatt. If I had to ask for the moon, I would ask that they adjust their water softener a bit - I had to work hard just to rinse soap from my hands in the sink. But, really, that is a subjective opinion, and not so much a negative as a suggestion to engineering!
