This hotel is just on the outskirts of DFW airport. There is a courtesy bus that will take you to & from the airport - make use of it as taxis are extortionate! (More on that later)
My colleague and I took the bus to the hotel and had a quick & simple check-in. My room was spacious, had a large bed, decent desk and a large flat-screen TV. For a business hotel I was very disappointed that Internet access is an additional charge - it is free in the lobby but $12.99 in the rooms.
The hotel has a fitness centre with treadmills and other machines. If you plan on exercising first thing in the morning (i.e. 6 AM) then get down there at 5.30 when it opens as it can get busy.
We headed out to Grapevine (local town) for the day. The concierge advised us to take a taxi, which cost $20. A lower cost option would be to take the airport shuttle back to the terminal and then take the Grapevine Shuttle - $5 for the day https://www.grapevinetexasusa.com/MapsAndVisitorInformation/GrapevineShuttleSchedule/tabid/790/Default.aspx
The food in the restaurants is fine - not amazing but not poor either.
Our meeting room for the 3 days didn't have a window, which was a shame. It made for quite a dull working environment.
Would I return - only if I really had to? There is nothing to do in the area so you're marooned in the hotel unless you have a car or are willing to hire lots of taxis.
