I frequently stay at Hilton’s and consider them a dependable mid-tier chain. The DFW is slightly below (Hilton) average. The room design was a little strange. With the bathroom door open you could not access the closet. The bathroom was really small (this is Texas everything is supposed to be big!), you needed to push the shower curtain into the bath tub or else snuggle against it when using the toilet. Our first floor room had stains on the curtains and the carpets. Much worse, the outdoor pool and indoor hot tub were pretty dirty. The outdoor pool water was grey and full of debris (leaves and the occasional frog). The indoor hot tub water was opaque and kind of gross. I spotted cockroaches at the indoor pool which is right across from the restaurant. The tennis courts looked well kept and the food quality, beds, linens and employee hospitality were fine. The very personable guy who makes omelets at the $18 per person breakfast buffet had several dollar bills in the center of his work area in an apparent hint for a tip - real classy and likely in violation of health codes. We went horseback riding at the Austin Ranch which is connected to the Hilton. At $40 per person per hour it’s expensive family entertainment. The guide (a cute German girl - Yavol Baby!) and horses were fine but the trail is sub-par. You ride over a heavily used dirt road and on pavement. Its not a back to nature experience since you frequently see and hear traffic and the whole property is underneath an approach route for aircraft heading to and from DFW (so its noisy). Even my horse addicted Niece didn’t want a second ride. I have family in the area and visit once a year but I don’t think we’ll go back to this Hilton.
