2 hours to clear US Customs @ DFW Airport - missed my rental car and hotel shuttles. Standing out in a cold and foggy night in a concrete maze that just seemed to go on forever. Not a great way to start a visit and destined to get a bit worse. Based on my fellow traveller's reviews I had chosen the La Quinta Inn & Suites Love Field - then #2 of all Dallas Hotels, which is located at 8300 John Carpenter Frwy but it took until 1 am to get a cab which dropped me off instead at the La Quinta at 4850 J C Frwy - a 10 min, $ 24 cab ride. Rosalind - the very nice lady at the desk - said it happens quite often and that a cab to Love Field would cost about $40. I was done, just wanted a bed and some sleep and she was good enough to call Max at the other La Quinta and they both agreed to cancel my original reservation. If you have ever tried to cancel a reservation this late in the game with a hotel - you know how big a 'challenge" this can be. Thank you Rosalind, Max and La Quinta - saved my night.
The La Quinta in Irving is much more convenient to DFW and is a very nice hotel - as one should expect with this chain. Located across from the Freeway itself, my room was set back and quiet. Spacious and well laid out, comfortable from the lobby in, this Inn had a warm and fuzzy feeling throughout.
My room was clean and well appointed - 2 comfortable queen beds, nice work desk with plenty of plugs for your electronic toys and great wifi. Flat Screen TV, good cable. Very clean bathroom with great water pressure and a nice shower/tub combo. I enjoyed what little time I got to spend here.
Good breakfast in the morning - I always like waffles in the shape of Texas - with real juices, real milk, real cereals, real muffins - in a nice quiet setting. Free shuttle back to the airport. Once again, I can not say enough about the staff at this Inn - both the night and day staff when I checked out. Friendly and helpful throughout my short stay here. Thank you La Quinta.
