Stayed three nights while exploring Dallas.
Pros: Smooth check-in. Recognized as a Carlson member and offered a large suite overlooking the pool. Interesting hotel layout with an indoor holidome concept with the bar area near the entrance, and open-glass elevators in the center of the dome facing the pool and restaurant on back side. Suite was well-appointed with a large living room area with fold-out sofa and work desk area, then a nifty bar with a sink, fridge and microwave leading to the bedroom area. There is a 27-inch TV in each main room. Much appreciated having a bedroom door (with a lock) to block out any hallway noise. Sliding doors next to bed opened to a large balcony. A/C was a quiet hum and worked well. Bathroom was spacious enough and had instant hot water. Shower control a bit awkward and sensitive, but offered good pressure.
As for services, the restaurant offered filling and tasty burgers (loved the avocado one), tortilla soup and mozzarella sticks. Maid service was reliable even on a day when I did not leave until 12pm. Laundry on second floor features two types of quarter washers ($1, $1.50) and two dryers ($1). Ice machine worked well. Free parking and regular shuttle to DFW (around 12 minutes). Less than 20 minutes to downtown Dallas.
Cons: Walking in to room had a funky floral smell each time. Sleep number bed remote never worked, bed was very firm. Informed maid with note, but it was never addressed. Some stains in carpets in both public areas and rooms. Alarm clock set 27 minutes fast (I corrected). Still using 1980s tube TVs. Slippery shower with no safety rail or rubber mat is an accident waiting to happen. Proper rocks glasses over the plastic cups would be an affordable upgrade. Front of hotel parking lacks lighting, with only one major light and most cars in relative darkness. Note that there are no shops or restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, just a sea of highways. With the lack of public transport, those flying in will need a rental in order to see anything in Dallas/Arlington/Fort Worth.
Overall, a pleasant stay at the Park Inn.
