Rated 3 out of 5 by pumpkin1 HVAC needs attention
Although it was down to 46 degrees overnight, the AC would not shut off. I turned it to off and it continuted to blow. I increased the thermostat to 80 and there was still no change. I would have called for assistance, but it was 11pm when we got to the room and discovered the problem. I slept cold and have had a sore throat ever since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ckm1900 Enjoyable, Comfortable Stay
We stayed two nights at this location. Although close to the airport, we did not hear any noise. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The lobby and the rooms are beautiful. Our room was large, with a king bed, a sofa, extra comfortable chair, a desk and a table with a flat-screen TV. The only drawback was there was no dresser. It was an ADA (handicap accessible) room (although we did not ask for one or need it). There were two small drawers in the table that held the TV. It was not enough to unpack out clothes. However, we did not ask for a room change (although I'm sure they would have given it to us).
The location of this hotel is prime in the summer season. It is across from Six Flags and down the street from Cowboy Stadium. We definitely would stay here again.

Overall the hotel met my needs.
My one complaint was despite my booking this room 5 months ago because my daughter was getting married on site in their garden area, I requested early check in.
Well, it did not happen as planned because the cowboys vs bills game was also occurring that weekend, I guess. Finally got my room around 2:00, requested it for 12:00!
Staff was very professional though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mrslurch Excellent customer service
We had the occasion to use Maintenance and Engineering, both friendly and professional. All of the staff were terrific, restaurant staff included..
Only complaint was The Market Place. Every day we had to wait for someone to come from back to take our order. Not just our group. One time we waited 10 minutes and finally went to door and pushed it open to find some one to wait on several of us. Many people simply left when no one appeared. This was the only consistent black mark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jmuldrow Wonderful Time!!
My husband and our two boys (7months and 3) just left the hotel and I don't have enough good things the staff was wonderful from the house keeping to the groundsmen everyone went out of there way to genuinely take care of us. The Groundsmen went and got bread so my son could feed the fish and the housekeeper Isabella worked around my children's napping schedule. I got help with restaurants and shopping I will definitely come back when anywhere near the area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by baseballmom70 Needs some work
We stay here because it is within walking distance of the ballpark. However, the hotel is in need of some work. There was black mold growing in our bathroom in several places. It looks as if the A/C has been leaking. Also the ceiling in the room has damage from leaking. The hallway carpets were very dirty and as soon as we got off the elevator it smelled bad. The staff is great and the food is great and it is nice to be able to walk to games, but they need to do some repairs and cleaning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by paladin3 Nice Hotel
I was pleased with the hotel and the room - I was upgraded to a corner room so I got an extra bit of space with a wet bar and fridge which was nice. Very pleased that I could grab a pizza in the lobby pizza hut. Staff were very friendly. Three small issues- shower stall was a little worn around the roof access panel, the chair would not stay up (kept sinking to lowest height) and there was no option to heat the room (it was a cold night). None of these were critical. Overall a nice hotel worth a visit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed2013 Disappointed
We paid extra for the club level. The mattress in our room needs replacement badly! Every time one of us would turn over the other person was almost seasick! Worse than being on a waterbed the spings are so shot! No bathrobes in our room, the side light by the bed did not work. Made me question what else could be wrong. No one explained that the club level was on floor 18. We were on 17 when we paid for club level so we walked all of 17 looking for it. Had to go back downstairs to ask. The card key kept not wanting to work in the elevator. So not worth the money we paid. Worse night sleep I've ever had at a hotel. Won't be back. The gentleman at the front - no smile, no warmness - looked mad. Staff needs retraining on customer service. Was a milestone celebration that turned out badly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by fred61 Would not recommend this hotel for leisure or family stay
Booked our room 2 months ahead of time and when we checked in we were given a handicap room. We were told we had to pay 12.95 extra for WIFI, which was very disappointing since we paid 149.00 for the room. When we went to get a coke from the left! Will probably not stay at this hotel again.

If you are needing to access the ACC, this facility being immediately adjacent makes it a no-brainer for staying here.
Excellent facilities, well maintained and clean. I am happy I opted to stay at this hotel.

First time staying at this hotel. First upon arriving, we discovered we were upgraded to club level. Nice Surprise!!
Room was hot when we first arrived. We went down to relax in the huge pool and have a few drinks while we waited for room to cool off. Turns out something was wrong with cooling system, However, we called front desk and it was immediately corrected.
Love the lounge! Breakfst buffet in the restaurant was great!!
We'll be back for sure!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Philly2012 Very disappointing stay
I used SPG points and upgraded suite nights and I’m very sorry that I put my family on this Hotel.
• Hallways were dirty and old. Elevators very dirty and slow.
• Got two Jr suites and the first one the pull up bed was so bad that I requested a room change
• The shower was horrible. The water would get really hot, then really cold then really hot again all on its own.
• The rooms were trashed, furniture on the Jr suite dirty and old, I was afraid to use them. Badly chipped furniture and with food crumbs. TV very bad with lines all over.
• no outlets by the bed
• Very poor concierge suite, coffee was cold, when asked the lady for more coffee she said I know and continue playing on the computer. Frozen cold bagels. No cups for juices on both days.
Over price restaurant for small salads
• Will not stay there ever again

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle87 Overall Nice
I attended a conference at this location and overall my stay was great. During the course of three days, there were problems with the air conditioning and wireless connectivity in the conference rooms. A couple of my colleagues also indicated there were huge problems with the air conditioning in their rooms too.
A friend of mine did experience a problem with Alberto at the bar - he was kind of rude to her....but was not to the rest of us. So, I'm not sure what that was about.

Rated 2 out of 5 by April2013 not the usual standard
Our focus was to find a hotel near the attractions we came for. We've always trusted any SPG hotel..however this location disappointed our expectations. We felt that because it held a Sheraton name, it didn't hold true this time when it comes to it's standard. We stayed executive level and breakfast was below expectations with little fresh fruit, and stale bagels. The hotel was loud and untidy in the reception area. With all the negatives, staff was friendly and listened to our concerns. Whether or not they will address the issues is another matter. Overall, our stay met our need for location. But that's it. If we had known about everything else, we could've stayed at another hotel and paid less. At least we would've had lower expectations instead of expecting the best which normally comes with a Sheraton name.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tomm317 Nice hotel but needs a management rework
My reservation got downgraded initially for the same price without my consent or knowledge. It took me over an hour on hold, a facebook message, and several emails to just get the room I had booked in April at the price I booked it at. I was never able to talk to the same person twice, and it seemed that each new person was completely uninformed of any of my previous interactions. The hotel itself was beautiful, but our tv kept switching in and out of analog/digital, and the internet was slow in addition to being over priced. The front desk and cleaning staff were polite and professional. All in all, it was such a hassle working with Sheraton, and they really did nothing to compensate their repeated mistakes, that although my stay when at the hotel was decent, I would still choose other options whenever possible.

Rated 3 out of 5 by atc80 I was disappointed
Problems during my stay included: My room was two doors away from the elevator and I heard it running constantly; I called room service to have dinner after a long day of meetings but they never answered the phone; I called guest services the next morning for help with my luggage but they never answered either; there was a portion of an old bar of soap left under the sink telling me the room wasn't cleaned properly; the hand rail in the bathroom wasn't cleaned at all.

Air was not working properly (2) days-maintenance comes out to repair the air/it worked briefly then went back out. My family of 4 slept on top of the bed sheets for comfort- my 2 boys and I had were shirtless both nights-I booked at Sheraton for the 1st time thinking of luxury for my wife and kids the thought and experience missed by a mile.The price was reduced meekly but overall the stay has ruined a relationship with the Hedgemans and who would we recommend?!?

Pros: Convenient location. Above average decor. Friendly service. Fast elevator. Quiet room. Comfy bed. Didn't make it to the pool, but it looks gorgeous!
Cons: Had a musty smell. Had to search for the TV remote which had fallen between the chair & ottoman. If you're short, use caution getting out of the shower/tub. If you're tall, your chest will be very clean.

It was great overall. We had tickets to the Ranger games for 2 nights and we wanted something close and within walking distance. You guys were perfectly located. The pool was open beyond 10 pm which was really nice for my grandson. The room was great. Maybe a little warm for me, but I do hot flash, so Alaska would have been warm too.. We will definietely be back maybe later this year or next for sure!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by NoMoreSheratonForMe Not the place to come for good customer service
During our four night stay in a junior suite on the club level, we were met with frustrations constantly. Check in was 2 1/2 hours late. Club Level entitled us to the Club Lounge for breakfast, hors d'ouveres and drinks. We encountered many times not enough food and drinks. The staff was rude and said they were out of food and would not be ordering more to be sent upstairs to the Club Lounge. It was a big waste of money to opt for the Club Level. Never once during our issues did I hear an employee apologize for any problem. The room was nice and big. Cleaning service offers green choice by putting what towels you want replaced on the ground. Doesn't matter because they took the ones hanging, too. The water in the shower changed temperatures from cold to hot during each shower and the faucet for water is on the outside of the shower!!!

Unfortunately, I became ill as I was checking into the hotel on Friday evening. To complicate matters, my key card would not open the door. In frustration, I called the front desk and asked them to please come up and open my door. A young man was very gracious and when he saw that I was ill, brought me water and searched for Tylenol. I wish I remembered his name, because he was most helpful and kind. He deserves some recgnition and thanks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chubbytexan Disappointing
The front desk person was not very friendly. I walked up to counter, another customer patron arrived same time as I did. I let the other patron go ahead of me. (all he needed was monetary change) After she takes care of him, she looks at me and just stares at me. I finally say to her "hello" it was a awkward feeling just standing there looking at her. She made me feel like I was bothering her. The a/c in my room did not work very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tlc7 Housekeeping walked in at 8:27 a.m.
The hotel is dated....but it is clean and the staff was friendly. My only disappointment was the persistent tapping at the door (with the edge of the door key) at 8:27 a,.m.. I got up to go to the door, thinking the place was on fire, and the door opened!!!!!! She looked at me and said, 'housekeeping' ....really at 8:30 in the morning on summer vacation? I had teenagers with me and they were still asleep.....I was shocked and disappointed.

There were SO many things that upset me during my stay, First, internet should have been included and after I addressed this twice, the woman at the front desk RUDELY responded, "Fine I will take care of it." Also, internet DID NOT work because my room was too far from the router. Third, that starbucks was positively the worst I have ever encountered. Both myself and my colleague said it tasted AWFUL. I will never stay here again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RickOKC Very Tired bathroom!
Bathroom in this room (1921) is very tired. Soap dish was broken off the wall. Tub was chipped in no less than 6 places. Caulking around where the tile meets the tub looks like a 4th grader did it. Chome pipes that support the bathroom countertop were stained and dusty. The room did not have an information packet in it that provided room service menu. We mentioned this to Housekeeping and they offered to fix it on the spot. We deferered .

Rated 4 out of 5 Nice hotel, but check out could be better
I stay at this hotel once a year for business and I really like the hotel. The rooms are nice, the fitness center and pool are great and its very close to my office in Arlington. My check out experience for my most recent stay was not the best, however. Generally I don't check out at the front desk if I am provided a copy of my bill my last night in the hotel. This did not happen and I need a receipt to file my travel expenses upon return to my office, so I had to go to the front desk to check out. I waited for 25 minutes because only one person was working the front counter. Luckily I didn't have to catch a flight, but I was late for a meeting. Because the reservations were made by our travel agent, I couldn't leave and hope that the invoice would be emailed to me. Ensuring that statements are distributed the night before departure would be helpful!

I visit this hotel frequently on business. The staff - front desk, restaurant, club room, bellmen, and van drivers - are all very welcoming, courteous, and helpful. I always feel well cared-for when I visit the Sheraton Arlington.
