We planned a spontaneous trip for Memorial Weekend for my family & a teenage friend. The location is perfect for Six Flags, Ranger Baseball, great restaurants, etc. The hotel gave us shuttle service to all of the above outings. The staff was
very friendly & informative.The pool is large & there are bar services.Starbucks located in lobby is fantastic!! The only thing that could stand improvement was the size of the bathrooms....very petite!!!They've had a multi-million dollar renovation so I don't see that happening soon...too bad they didin't take that into consideration!!!
My wife and I stayed at the Sheraton Arlington on the night of a wedding reception held at the hotel. Our room was very comfortable, quiet and looked quite new. We had breakfast the next morning at the buffet in the hotel restaurant and were very
satisfied. Every encounter we had with the staff was a pleasant one. The front desk personnel were very eager to help, the porters were very friendly, and the chief valet in the hotel drive was very patient with us and allowed us to leave our car parked there while we moved in supplies for the wedding. The only negative was access - the surrounding roadways are all under construction it seems - but that's not the hotel's fault. We were very pleased with our stay.
While the Sheraton Arlington Hotel, Arlington, Texas offers great amenities and often offers a great stay, the weekends don't offer these benefits. With the proximity to the stadium and Six Flags, the weekends are wild and loud with lots of
unsupervised kids. Often the parents are in one room, the kids in another. The slamming of doors and running down the halls continue until the early morning. Not surprisingly, the next morning, the parents are yelling at the kids trying to coax them from bed. Other notes: - check-in is being refurbished, but not a problem; staff is very helpful, and apologetic; the room is well appointed and comfortable; dining is limited, but it's in a great area for other choices; and the rooms connecting doors lack noise abatement - if the people (kids) in the next room are up, so are you. For business during the week, or a non-event weekend, it can be an enjoyable option.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
The area is on the fringe of entertainment/dining service concentration. Great choices in food and light entertainment
The Sheraton was a nice place to stay for the rate. It is close to Six Flags (we were dissapointed with the wait for the Park's Shuttle service) The property was under renovation, can't wait to see what it looks like when it is finished. The staff
was very nice and even had a cute bucket with goodies in for our daughter, she loved it! We will be staying again.
