Arrival at the hotel
The Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center is located 10 minutes from Dallas Fort Worth airport terminals. There is a 24h/24 complimentary shuttle service that can pick you up at the airport and then bring you back for your next flight. Be aware that you need to call the hotel when you need it as it will come upon request.
When you arrive at the hotel, you will face the huge atrium and its stairs. On the left, the front desk staff will be waiting for you. Our check-in was really smooth. We were in our room in less than 5 minutes.
We had booked an executive room but obtained a suite thanks to the eStandby upgrade (this allows to get upgrade at discounted rate). The suite is the merge of two regular guest rooms. So you have two entrances and two bathrooms : one for the living room and one for the bedroom.
The living room has a desk and also a sitting area with a sofa and a table. As it is also a guest room, there is a bed hidden in the furniture. There is also a bathroom with a bathtub. The bedroom also has a desk, a large bed and a bathroom with an Italian shower.
Our suite was located on one end of the corridor and was very quiet. We couldn’t hear any plane while we could clearly see them through the window so the soundproofing is perfect.
We had access to the club lounge together with the suite. We got there in the evening. A waiter was available to deliver free soft drinks. There was a buffet with cold and hot meals. You could start with a fresh salad. Then have some fried potatoes and samosas. There was also a selection of cheeses. And few sweet to conclude.
In the morning, we got to the breakfast buffet. It was pretty good if you compare to what you usually get in the US. You could easily find what you need, whether you are looking for salty or sweet options.
We arrived late so we didn’t really have a chance to try all the activities available at the Hilton DFW Lakes. Still we toured the hotel to find out what was there.
You have a nice indoor swimming pool with a jacuzzi. Outdoor, there is another swimming pool and several lighted tennis courts. There is also a fitness center well furnished with a shop where you can buy almost everything you could need while traveling. So really, you can do a lot of sports while staying at this hotel.
The Hilton DFW Lakes is a nice hotel next to Dallas airport. It is close to the airport but not inside the airport so you can enjoy the green setting around the hotel. As the soundproofing is perfect, it is a good choice if you are looking for a hotel within the airport area. You won’t be disturbed by the planes.
Hotel staff is really friendly and professional. They will definitely make your stay a pleasant journey.
