DFW area has the best price to quality ratio in the world when it comes to hotels and this hotel was no exception. Being a Holiday Inn Express, it doesn't have quite the bells and whistles of an Intercontinenal. But, for anyone who cares more about a well fitted-out room, a quiet night, convenience and friendly services, this is a really good place to stay.
The hotel is alongside a bunch of hotels and restaurants right next to i-35 west. It is set well back though, so there is no noise or bustle / it was actually very quiet. That said, there must be 100 restaurants within a mile. Add to that Albertsons and most well known franchises and it is hard to know what you would be missing in the way of shopping. It is about a 20 minute drive from Ft Worth about 30 to Arlington and about 45-50 minutes from DFW airport if traffic is flowing well. For a Cowboys game, there may be closer hotels but I would consider this within striking distance.
The room I had was well kitted out with a microwave, iron and ironing board, coffee stuff, a decent sized desk, sofa, tv and jacuzzi. The jacuzzi was a little bit odd because it was in the main bedroom area rather than a separate room. The shower worked well - plenty of hot water. The bed was not overly firm compared to say, your average Hilton bed.
Breakfast was plentiful and decent. First time I have seen an automated pancake maker - genius. Other foods included cereals, scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits, bananas, a pasty cabinet with muffins of all descriptions, breads etc. Coffee was also provided along with juice, although the juice seemed pretty sugary. That was after tasting the cinnamon rolls too. In any case, it was a good, filling meal and good value as an inclusion in the price.
There is a swimming pool indoors and there is also a fitness center with about 3 or 4 treadmills. I did not use it so that was just an impression at a glance.
The final comment is about the service. I thought the people running the place were really nice and friendly - very welcoming. And, the true proof in the pudding of whether I would return: yes, definitely.
