We stayed for one night during a layover at DFW. We took the free shuttle from the airport. When I called the hotel to request the shuttle, the front desk man was a bit gruff asking which gate I was at, and we waited longer than I expected, but it was fine considering it was free.
The beds and pillows were extremely soft and comfortable. It seemed clean, though I did find it strange that the lotion in the bathroom was half empty, as if it hadn't been replaced since the last guest. There also was only one bar of soap ... so it was a pain to switch from the shower to the sink. The room was spacious and well decorated with modern furnishings, except for a very 80s looking alarm clock.
We wish it was closer to some restaurants. There is a Whataburger down the way if you're willing to walk a bit, and the front desk referred us to the Sheraton across the highway. We ended up taking a cab to a steakhouse 4 or 5 miles away.
The biggest problem was that the hotel was overrun with a kids' cheer and football group. The children were running up and down the halls all night when we arrived. The next morning, the chaos started again ... as we left, we saw numerous doors open and parents letting the kids just roam. The lobby and elevators were also buzzing with small, unsupervised kids. Though I wish I'd complained to the management (I bit my tongue), I don't know how much good it would have done. It's not their fault, it's the parents.
Thank goodness our stay was only for one night!
