I stayed at this hotel for one week, and my review is based on my daily experiences.
This hotel is very close to the airport with quick and easy access to I-635, TX 114, and TX 161. It is also very quick and convenient to get to the Los Colinas business district. The hotel really is centrally located in the DFW metroplex.
Out of several interactions with staff members, only one worker was pleasant and professional. He literally went out of his way to be of service. The rest of the staff left a lot to be desired as they were very curt, and at times, blatantly rude.
My room (a 1 bedroom suite with living room and kitchen) was nice enough and met all basic needs. The bedroom and bathroom were clean, however, the living room had not been cleaned very well (there was a little bit of trash and a soda lid on the floor) and neither had the kitchen. The table had a food residue on it (which easily came off when I used a clean rag), and several of the dishes had not been cleaned. Also, the few dishes in the cupboard were VERY basic and quite old. Several of the cooking utensils were beginning to rust.
On a positive note, the bed was quite comfortable with plenty of pillows, and the shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. The room had lots of available lighting and did not feel dark or dingy. I did not hear very much noise from any other guests. In fact, I would say that my entire stay was very quiet and calm.
This hotel is DIRECTLY under the flight path for planes landing on 17L at DFW (or taking off on 35R). The landing/takeoff noise starts around 6:45am and doesn't really taper off until about 11pm. When the larger planes are landing, you can quite literally feel the noise.
If you are looking for a basic hotel that offers a small kitchenette and is conveniently located close to the DFW airport, this would be a good choice. With some staff attitude adjustments, better cleaning, and better kitchenware, I would have happily given it a higher rating.
