The trend in family-friendly hotels is a breakfast buffet. As one who travels frequently, I know that the quality of these buffets varies greatly. And then there is the new gold standard. Marriott's Residence Inn in Grapevine, TX, was a wonderful and convenient place to stay during a recent visit to Dallas. What puts this hotel in a category of its own was Nancy. During our stay she was the Marriott associate who made the breakfast buffet hum. My habit is to come down to breakfast early, have a light meal and then read the newspapers online over several cups of coffee. I got to watch Nancy work. She kept the food trays stocked, the coffee never ran out, she was quick to clear the tables as people finished and she was always there to help with the waffle maker. Well done. The hotel is near the north end of the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport. A shuttle runs between DFW and the hotel on demand. If you are meeting someone at the airport this saves you from paying the airport tolls. Nearby is downtown Grapevine with its historic buildings, wine bars and shopping.; a day trip not to be missed. Nancy, I will be back.
Comfortable stay (with room to stretch out) during a post-conference weekend. We were close to the airport for an easy commute the day we departed, but also very close to a major connecting road for trips to Dallas, Ft. Worth, and Arlington. We so appreciate the consistency found the Marriott brands.
Was so happy to be back and I immediately overheard Karen the breakfast hostess who I recognized from past stays warmly greeting and accommodating the guests at the lovely breakfast buffet. The rooms are wonderful, full kitchens, spacious, large coffee maker...not that you need it with fresh coffee always avail in the lobby. Efficient workout room, friendly front desk staff with free airport shuttles. It's also next door to the Bass Pro Shop. If I need to stay near DFW his is my favorite place!
In town for training. 35 nights at this place and it was fantastic. Super friendly staff. Sheran is great and Javier in the bar/restaurant is awesome. Hotel has laundry on the third floor, pool, and fitness center. Breakfast was great. The Library bar has crab stubbed shrimp- phenomenal. I will be back for sure. Great location and staff.
Website stated limited airport shuttle on saturdays so I decided to call to be sure I could get shuttle around 7am Saturday. Steven assured me I would have a lift & would be here when I arrived as well as he was! He arranged everything and his customer service was above and beyond! He gave me a 1 bed suite with separate living room & kitchen- see pics. Hotel smells and looks new. Shuttle was prompt for pickup and drop off. Windshield needs serious repair but that is my only complaint. Breakfast is good as well!
Staff are fantastic! Unfortunately, the property is a bit tired. Internet is slow, television reception was non-existent for much of the stay. Breakfast is good, the restaurant is somewhat "Blah". SMOKERS as you enter the lobby. What a place to have people smoking! Perhaps relocating the smoking area from the front entrance to somewhere else...middle of the car park..would be nice. Air conditioning was set to "HIGH" yet remained in "AUTO", thus no constant flow of air. Found myself awakening to a hot room in the middle of the night. Not pleasant. Laundry room is spacious, but only two washers and two dryers.
Overall....we had a great stay. You can't beat it for the price. You don't get anything fancy with a Residence Inn, but the hotel is clean, rooms are nice, bed is comfortable. The breakfast is nice. It was good, and convenient. Although it only goes to 9:30, so don't sleep in. I am still giving 4 stars, although we had a few things that were weird with our stay: There was some confusion with some special requests. I am allergic to down, and requested a "feather free" room, but they left two feather pillows, and two foam pillows on our bed. You would think "feather free" means feather free. By the time we got there, housekeeping was gone for the day, so we had to use those pillows for that night. There is a complimentary airport shuttle, which we learned on our way to the airport, as we were leaving, that they give short rides to the Grapevine area. That would have been nice to know ahead of time. Everything in the area is very close by, but with the rainy weather when we visited, we didn't want to always walk somewhere, so we took uber a lot. Ubers are sometimes inconvenient. Also, the hotel is somewhat hard to get to/find. Most GPS took us past the driveway to turn in, then we were on the freeway. It was a long detour around to get back to the correct parking lot.
Picked this hotel at DFW as it seemed to be surrounded by restaurants. The fact is that this hotel does not need any help. The hotel is great. It has an excellent onsite restaurant and bar and you don't need to go any further afield. A great choice.
Stayed at the Residence Inn DFW Airport North this w/e for a Saturday night-Sunday break with grand daughter and found it to be one of the best. Every hotel employee we met was friendly, gracious and helpful, including housekeeping staff, with special mention to the gentleman who delivered our room service order and the sweet woman in charge of the breakfast buffet on Sunday morning. Extra special thanks to Jacqueline at the front desk for her patience, understanding and assistance at check-in to ensure our room was just as requested. Our room was a one bedroom suite, and spotless, as was the entire hotel, including the elevators! We used the exercise room and outside hot tub/whirlpool and enjoyed both. An unexpected bonus is the available Room Service..yes..at a Residence Inn and the food was both delicious and reasonably priced. There is also a grill restaurant/bar on site, another extra not normally found at Residence Inns. The breakfast buffet had great variety of both hot/cold choices. I highly recommend this hotel for visitors to the Grapevine/ DFW not only for the excellent location near the airport, Grapevine Mills Mall, multiple restaurants and historic downtown Grapevine, but also because in my opinion it is really something special. Perfect for short visits as well as extended stays.
I come to the area twice a year in business and in this occasion , I ended up here . I have been to most other hotels and long stays over the years and would put this one as lowest ranking . Rooms are fine if a little small , but the overall impression is no one really cares . Any customer relations is from the "teeth out " and meaningless . Breakfast is ok . Hallways were at 61 degrees with the outside temp at about 34 ..: when asked could the hallways and description be warmed I was told , I was first guest that asked such a thing ?!? Can't imagine most people accepting to be cold when it's cold outside . Complimentary coffee at reception is hit or miss affair and when asked ../ guess what ... I was the first guest the asked such a thing . !!? Overall rooms are ok , but sound can be a factor from other rooms and doors . Staff really don't give a damm and as such won't be staying here again and ensuring no booking come from my Comany to here . There is far better value and standard , less then 300 m from here .:: take the option
