Property Highlights

Based on my experience, the property welcomes guests of all types, and as a result, it has amenities that accommodate everyone. You may look for a more affordable mid-range hotel like the La Quinta by Wyndham Arlington North 6 Flags Dr. because just like the Hyatt Place Dallas North Arlington, Hilton Garden Inn might have a slight premium due to the brand positioning.

However, guests will find that pet-friendly rooms, a fitness center, an onsite restaurant, free WiFi, a digital key, complimentary breakfast, free pool access, non-smoking rooms, meeting rooms, connecting rooms, indoor heated pool, a business center, and an outdoor pool offer more comfortable accommodations with modern amenities.                                                                                        

Main Amenities 

Hilton Garden Inn Dallas Arlington South Texas features all amenities you need to enjoy your tour. For families, the property offers a private bathroom with a roll-in shower, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a terrace, daily housekeeping, adjoining/connecting rooms, and a microwave. You won't get a suite-style accommodations like in the Comfort Suites Arlington Entertainment District hotel, but you will barely notice the difference.

Some of the main amenities I benefited from include an indoor pool, a fitness center, a business center, a 24-hour front desk, room service, a stair-free path, an average nightly room rate, and restaurants and a lounge/bar.

On the other hand, if you want a more upscale dining, spa services, enhanced fitness facilities, and other luxurious offerings and a high-end guest experience, hotel such as Live! by Loews Arlington would probably suit you better.
