Hello. Let me please preface thie review by stating that I am a Starwood member and so stay with the brand wherever I go. I have now stayed at this hotel TWICE in the last month.
The first time I booked this hotel it was the first time I had ever stayed at an Element. I have stayed in similar hotels in the Starwood chain like ALoft, but Element struck me as a fresh alternative and so I gave it a try. GREAT MOVE ON MY PART!
Location is great; right near the airport. Didnt use the hotel shuttle at all as I rented a can both stays but as I said very close. McDonalds, proprietary restaurants, donut shops and gas stations all literally in the extended parking lot. About 20-25 minutes to downtown Dallas, and the drive isn't bad.
Check in was a breeze with the auto-kiosk that only needed a credit card. It spit out my keys and everything!
Rooms are VERY CLEAN and have an airy feeling. Huge windows contribute to this fact I'm sure. Wood floors in the room are a nice touch and of course a huge tv! Bright bathroom with Kohler fixtures. Toilet is European design with 2 different flush options. Shower is HUGE with "rain" showerhead and also water wand. Kitchenette is perfect with full size fridge and small stove, microwave, sink and dishes. A family would be very comfortable here for an extended period of time.
The little things at this hotel are what make the difference. I could have stayed at the Westin or Sheraton right down the street for the same money, but would have had to pay for internet use and gotten no free breakfast. That's right...FREE BREAKFAST in the morning, EVERY MORNING EVEN ON WEEKENDS. There is also a managers reception with cocktails every weeknight. Free parking is nice as I've paid up to $50 a night in some cities like CHI or NY. 2 computers in the lobby with free use and printing for anyone! Fitness center has everything you need for a stay with lots if newer equipment and free weights.
Loved every minute of my stay here and my wife did too! SHE LOVED THE POOL!!!
We'll be back to stay in this chain of the Starwood branch!
