Residence Inn by Marriott Dallas Central Expressway3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel has not been updated apparently for quite awhile - externally or internally. It has a very compact footprint; and, therefore, has narrow sidewalks to rooms -- with outside doors. The rooms themselves are also showing their age. Ours was clean. However, it had but one mirror and no cabinet in the bathroom, the lighting was minimal and some bulbs were burned out. The sidewalk to our room was severely cracked and could be a hazard. The bed was nice and was comfortable, as were the sofa and chairs - but they too seemed dated. The parking was plentiful, but some trees shed a tremendous amount of residue on our car. The breakfast was adequate but not the equal of other residence inns we have stayed. The lobby is also very small and compact. The location is very good and access is convenient. In summary, convenient location, dated and not competitive with other offerings in the same price range.
This hotel is "dated" right off the expressway makes it convenient to get to. Watch where you park.... if you park under trees, your car is sure to be pooped on..... a lot. Felt like secure area. Room is neat and clean. We were checking out (still occupying the room) when the wait staff came in (at 9am...on Sunday) and starting cleaning !!! We tried to tell this person to give us some time, but he didnt speak English and kept right on going. RUDE!!! for this, we cant recommend or will return.
An ice storm delayed our arrival, but the staff had de iced the paths. The parking lot was very nearly full but our little suite was quiet with an excellent soft bed. Our Boston terrier often starts scratching when we stay in pet friendly hotels ( he's allergic to fleas and we spend a fortune at the vet to keep him treated) but he stayed comfortable the whole visit. Great value on a pet friendly stay.
Room 535 reeks of smoke. No other rooms available or so I am told. It seems like the room next door is smoking. Your front desk cannot investigate, nor can they resolve the problem. What options does a guest have at this point? It is going to be a lousy night.
We had initially planned to stay 4 nights, but a family emergency required that we stay 3 nights longer, during the State Fair and over the TX/OU Football Weekend. When we requested an extension of our stay, the management team of the 2 Ks and Joe, between Residence Inn and the affiliate Courtyard next door, made the request seamless and pain free (even though we were using Marriott Points). Can't say enough regarding how appreciative we are toward these guys. Breakfast was very good and evening offerings consisted of wine and beer The property was clean and the parking lots were safe. Several very good restaurants were within easy walking distance to the strip center across the street.
This hotel is conveniently located in Dallas next to a major freeway and you can get anywhere from here. Room was comfortable, and clean. We liked the suite and a nice layout. The street behind the hotel was a bit noisy but overall, it was a pleasant stay. Breakfast was served everyday and it was good, fresh, and some variety was offered.
I was visiting with friends so I at least wanted 2 double beds or a dbl and a sofa bed. To my surprise when I entered the room it was a 2 bedroom 2 bath suite, full kitchen, and it gets even better...a walkout patio! The room was extremely clean (thank you housekeeping), spacious, updated and well stocked with necessities and nice landscaping. Desk staff was friendly only one had a name tag I think it was Kylar (sp).
The staff was accommodating and polite. Food from breakfast to the evenings get-to-gether were appreciated. Daily maid service and room service was available. The only issue was with the location if you have a car then this is not a problem. The surrounding area is kind of poor with small neighborhood stores and restaurants. The mall is a few miles away with all of the major stores. Overall the price matches the location and service. A plus is the Marriott hotel next door that has a lodge restaurant with tasty food and drinks - try it.
I stayed here for business travel the week of July 4th and very glad that I did. The location is excellent. Our office is just a few miles south, so it is very convenient. The room itself was very clean and spacious. There are also good dining and grocery options nearby so I could either eat out or stock my fridge. My co-workers and I agree that this will be our "go to" spot for travel to Dallas.
The stay was decent. Started off in a one bedroom. The staff was very accomodsting and moved us into a two bedroom suite. Pretty spacious and they include a full kitchen. Hot breakfast was good, provided a variety every am. The hotel also hosts a social event on Mondays thru Wednesdays which are pretty good. Now for the bad: The pool is nice but you cant enjoy sitting around it due to all the mosquitos biting. We noticed our shower curtain had small mold issues. The AC Works great in the main living room however its slightly warmer in the 2 bedrooms. Although the hotel is listed as new as the Residence Inn, you can still notice leftovers from what the hotel used to be.
