4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2012

Clean, new, convenient location to Frisco, Plano, DFW Airport, Dallas Tollway access and also a straight shot to get to McKinney and Allen. It is also convenient to one of my favorite stomping grounds - The Shops of Legacy where you can enjoy upscale entertainment or a night out that is geared toward couples and singles. If you have little ones in tow the Stonebriar Mall area is very close with lots of options surrounding it like The Cheesecake Factory.

It has a modern/art like appeal that hinges on a New York City Chic flat/apt. There are also social activities like a hamburger cookout at the pool - yes, there is a stainless steel gas grill. They have a happy hour and a very inviting lobby and outdoor lounge pit if your group needs a place to come together in the evening.

The staff is friendly and accomodating to your needs.

The only reason I did not give the hotel and excellent rating is that the Hilton Garden Inn beds are better. But if you can sleep on a Hampton Inn bed you will be just fine.

Room Tip: Be sure to check the calendar at posted on the Kitchen Refrigerator for social events. If your ro...

Due to work, I'm finding my self in the somewhat oddly named Metroplex area North of Dallas and keep coming back here for my extended stays due to the spacious and clean room + the mountain of extras that make it a bit more palatable to be away from home. The acceptable (and complimentary b'fasts and lite dinners during the week are great. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. I have many choices when I travel to this area, but this where I keep coming back.

We stayed here while we were visiting our son for four days. He was doing a internship and we wanted to stay in the general area of his employment. There was easy access to the toll road and feeder roads. There were plently of stores and resturants in the area. We were greatly surprised when we got to our suite. It was beautiful, spacious, well equipped and very clean. I immediately felt comfortble and was able to relax. We enjoyed the breakfast that was available to guests. It offered variety and we were able to take it back to our room. I worked out everyday and found the equipment in good operating condition and clean. We were not able to take advantage of the pool, fire pit or basketball half court but they were all very impressive. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We were traveling with our dog and they were all very responsive to her whenever we came and went. There is a neighborhood close providing a safe walking area. The only complaint we would have is the $100 pet fee. I certainly understand a charge but we would not have stayed here for one night with that fee empossed. We were able to justify it since we were staying four nights. It would have been nice to be able to make a deposit and if there was no damage or odor, receive some of it back. So if you are traveling with a pet and need an exceptional place for several days, this is the place. Traveling without pets, mark the place to stay.

Room Tip: We had a second floor and on the end where there was an exit so we could take the dog out.

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was great, especially Britten at the front desk. I like how the bedroom is tucked away. It is near a residential area so we had a place to walk. Plano is a short and direct drive away. Overall, very happy.

Had to stay in a hotel for three months during relo. Hotel and staff were great. Clean rooms and nice family hotel. Stayed with wife, three kids and two dogs. Was a long stay but they made us feel comfortable and we really appreciated the quick service. Thank you!

I stayed here for a week Aug14th till 19th. I enjoyed my room very much. It was comfortable, quiet and had all the amenities i needed. I love the fact that the hotel (as it isn't close to any restaurants - only if you have a car) has a complimentary breakfast in the morning. there was enough variety too as to not get bored of it after a week. The Texas shaped waffles are delish ;) In the evening they also have a light fare with complimentary bud light on tap and red/white wine. The evening is a great time to gather and meet some of the guests after a long work day.
I have to commend Brittan, one of the concierge. My co-worker and I were wondering where we should go on our 1 day we had to site see. She recommended The Stockyards Station in Fort Worth. She told us that if we wanted to see Texan culture it was the place to go. She even went online to show us the website and provided us with a taxi/shuttle service to call. Thank you Brittan we enjoyed our day at the stockyards. Fort Worth was awesome!
The pool was very clean and refreshing. We were able to swim up until 10PM. Nice way to cool down after a day in the heat:)

TRANSPORTATION: The hotel does have a complimentary shuttle but only runs certain times of the day and travels withing a 5mile radius.
If you want to travel I would recommend renting a car at the airport. We used a shuttle service and cost us 85.00 from The hotel to Fort Worth stockyards 1 WAY. On the return it was late and we were only able to get a taxi and that was 95.00 with fuel surcharge and tip. The transportation guys are very friendly - great service! but if you are looking to save a bit of money I recommend a car rental. We were fortunate that a co-worker had a rental and could drive us to Parker Rd. in Plano to get on the DART - The train. You can pay $4.00 round trip for the day to travel from Plano to Dallas (West End) or even continue on into Fort Worth.

Some great restaurants are located at Legacy Dr. Where the "shops of legacy" are - our favorites were Seasons 52, Village Burger, Potbelly's, and Land & Cattle in Plano

We stayed here with a group for 4 nights. This hotel is new, fresh, and clean! The service is amazing. Tanya Williams helped us and made sure our group was comfortable. There is a grill by the pool and plenty of room for everyone to sit back and relax together. Each room has a full kitchen with all your cooking items available. We liked the one bedroom king suite because it offered a little more privacy for adults traveling with kids for several nights. The rooms were spacious and modern and the beds were comfortable. There is a mall and lots of shopping nearby. We already have our reservations to go back in a couple weeks.

Room Tip: Ask about the king suites. They are a little more expensive, but worth it.
