Rated 3 out of 5 by mommom Room not ready
I was contacted before I arrived concerning the time of my arrival since I was staying on the Club Level. I responded saying I would arrived early afternoon. I arrived at 3:15pm and had to wait until 4:30 before I could check into my room. The evening "Club" food ran out each evening early in the evening. Our bathtub had a ring around the tub for 3 days. Other than that it was alright.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TommyP Airport shuttle is a joke
Upon arrival to DFW at 10:30pm was informed by employee that there was no shuttle driver and was basically hung up on
Had 8:30 am flight and phones downstairs as there was no info in room to get shuttle schedule and was told it had just left and next one was at 7:30 an hour away.
Front desk offered to call cab. Cab to airport had meter turned off and charged $40 for the $30 ride I had to the hotel. When questioned the driver said he had a special arrangement with hotel. Obviously the employees are receiving money for using him
I expect better and seriously doubt I would stay here again

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jymartin64 This is a great hotel in a perfect location
Loved this hotel. Only qualm I have is that it's probably in need of an update. It was a clean room but the stains on the carpet give the appearance that it's not. But I assume that an update is probably around the corner because it really is a wonderful place to stay. The Sunday breakfast was awesome. I'll definitely return!

Rated 2 out of 5 by mash poor condition and service lacks TLC
Overall the hotel is in need of some general upkeep. At my conference this was voiced by several.
Front desk staff were helpful, service staff need some training.
Toilet was stopped up twice, second time we observed the maint person splashing toilet water on the floor and dripping on the carpet. No effort to clean up.
SPG-I did not feel recongnized as a lifetime gold member nor did I receive typical benefits/upgrade, or an appology they were not available. I do believe the person may have been new. He wrote a note to the manager while checking me in and I heard a loud stern "NO".

Rated 4 out of 5 by OpinionOnEverything Nice surprise
really nice room upgrades and comfy beds
Came for the game, as I expect many do - wanted something "grander" for the Xmas holiday, but quite nice and crazy-good close to the stadium.
Service in club room quite nice too - isn't on scale of Asia hotels, but nice and friendly & helpful staff. Definitely would return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DanceDad Unacceptable Food and Beverage Service
My family and I stayed at the Sheraton Arlington as part of a National Competitive Dance competition in the adjacent convention center. During our stay we utilized the snack bar, room service, valet parking, the snack bar and the fitness center.
On Night 6 my family was absolutely wiped out and decided to stay at the hotel and use the in house dining facility and sit at a table and dine together. My 7 year old decided she would like to order the same thing she had ordered from room service on a prior evening, which was actually breakfast of fruit, oatmeal, bacon and hasbrowns. We were informed by staff (Tiffany) that breakfast would be no problem. When waited on by our waiter (Ashley) we ordered the breakfast for our daughter and he said he had never had anyone order breakfast in all the years he worked at the hotel, nobody had ever ordered breakfast for dinner. We also informed him we had checked with the hostess before ordering and were informed it would be fine. Ashley returned to our table and told us that breakfast was not possible. We told him we could order it from room service and he said "That is your choice". He was absolutely rude in his approach to a family who had not been rude or demanding and has spent an inordinant amount of money this week in the hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RqlR Nice hotel for conventions, average service
This hotel is nicely-appointed and is attached to a convention center, which makes it convenient when one is attending events. However, any requests for basic services such as early check-in, late check-out, etc. were essentially ignored. Any calls to request such services to customer service or guest services were promptly denied, however very politely. In addition, the hallways were extremely loud with several young people talking and partying outside of their rooms well into the wee hours of the morning. As I travel very frequently for business and am a rewards member of several major hotel chains, I had expected a higher level of customer service and quality from a Sheraton family hotel. I was surprised to be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris This hotel has incredible customer service
Upon arriving to checking out, the staff at Sheraton Arlington, which included Sklyer, Elizabeth, Carla, and Mandy went above and beyond making my stay so nice and enjoyable. Right down to running downstairs (I was in the club lounge), to get some peanut butter for my morning bagel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bubba2012 Not up to snuff
Room description stated it was for 5 people, but truly only slept 4. My son had to sleep in a chair for two nights. Hotel staff was not sympathetic and did not fix this problem or seem to care since we had already paid in full. Came back to room after first day and tub was clogged and filthy. Tub was unclogged quickly but not cleaned. Kids swam in pool, however came out with scrapes. Pool is very rough on feet, hands and knees, when kids complain and come out bleeding, you know it's bad. Upon check out, staff did not care how our stay was...did not even ask. Handed them our comment card upon checkout and they took it without a word and without eye contact. Very Poor customer service. Will not be back for sure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rachel74 Ragged Out!
This hotel is far below the level it should be. They tried to charge me about $180 night for this rat trap. Carpets, walls, furniture, bedding is dingy and stained. Bathrooms are outdated. Matress was noisy and uncomfortable. 1st room they put me in had leaking toilet and shower. Food on the furniture and bedspread. The rooms smell too. When I insisted on being moved the staff have me attitude and was unfriendly. Oh, and I got to move myself because they never got around to it. 2nd room still smelled, everything stained & A/C was really Loud. I gave up. Got way over charged. Not a good place to stay. Only thing good I can say is that this hotel has a good location. Right next to six flags, hurricane Harbor, etc

Rated 4 out of 5 by sportsfan Great hotel if going to a Rangers game.
Nice hotel, especially if going to a Rangers game. It is within easy walking distance. Cowboy Stadium is close but I did not walk there so cannot comment. The only thing keeping this from an overall 5 star is the lounge area. I stayed here a few years ago and the lounge was a large area. The last time I stayed the lounge was closed for renovations. I thought that was good as it was a little dated. But the new lounge is too small for a hotel that caters to sports fans and did not seem at all inviting. This is not a comment on staff as I did not purchase anything. The only other negative was digital channels were pixelated. This happened a different Dallas area hotel also, so it may have been the satellite service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ej1963 Why I was not satisfied with my stay at this hotel.
Upon arrival, my expectations were met. The hotel was convient to the conferance I was attending, the room was satisfactory and the staff was outstanding. As my stay continued a series of events occured that clouded my stay. Dinner at the restaurant one evening resulted in bread ties in my soup. Needless to say, I was no longer hungry. Upon returning to the room, it was not cleaned, after a further delay the room was cleaned and when I returned the tub was not clean, Apparently when cleaned by housekeeping the tub had backed up and was not properly rinsed. In addition, bugs were found in my bed on two ocassions and charges were made to my bill from the bar, I had not gone to the bar.
All in all not a happy experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by IW2014 Not prepared for conference
Had a Sun-Tues conference at this hotel. Arrived Sunday evening at 4:00 pm and waited it lobby for over 4 hours, along with many others, to get assigned a room. They were waiting for rooms to get cleaned. Store ran out of Starbucks supplies and other items were gone immediately due to all the people. There were issues with serving lunch in the restaurant on Monday. It was clear they were not staffed appropriately to meet the needs of the participants at this conference. Very nice, clean rooms. Would recommend this hotel unless it was for a conference event.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tmb471 This hotel is understaffed
We checked in Monday for a five night stay because we were part of a convention next door at the convention center. Upon arriving, there were no valet staff or bellman available to assist me. It would not have been a problem, but for the fact I was traveling with my two young daughters and could have used a little help. After checking in, there was still no bellman or valet, and it wasn't an extremely busy check in time. Our room was fine until we actually went to bed. One of the mattresses was so old, the springs creaked every time I rolled over. The other bed was a little better but not acceptable for a hotel in this category. The main problem that seemed consistent throughout our stay, however, was there were not enough staff, which caused long waits at the to-go coffee shop, restaurant, and bar. The waits were not isolated - they were every single day. Making things worse, once I was waited on, the staff were not very friendly but I will attribute this to their stress level from the long lines. One night I chose to eat with my children at the hotel restaurant because it was late and I needed to put them bed. This was a huge mistake, as it took over two hours to get our food and check. Then my check was incorrect but it was too much of a hassle to wait to fix it. Even a simple task of calling guest services was a hassle because I usually had to call more than once to get someone to answer so I could place a wake up call. It was not one huge problem with this hotel, rather lots of little things that made our stay less than desirable. I realize the hotel was at capacity but it should also have been staffed accordingly. This is our second year staying at this property for this convention and it was also understaffed last year, but not to the extreme that it was this year. I also do not think it is fair that the hotel allows Rangers fan psych to park in its lots, thereby taking up all hotel parking and forcing guests to pay to valet park their car. This happened to me twice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nancy56 2 night stay for family business
The hotel was very nice and conveniently located for our purposes. It was very nice to be able to get out and walk around the stadium and park/pond. We stayed on the Club level. The snacks were good, they charged for beer and wine, saved a little on beer but much better selection of wine in bar downstairs. Breakfast was pretty good, a breakfast "eggroll" , then some other cold items, fruit, cereal , muffins,etc. Loved having Starbucks coffee both in the room and in the Club level lounge. Overall a good stay, would stay there again. Oh, and the pool was very nice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by scrapper75 Parking Issue
I have stayed at this Sheraton many times and was very disappointed at the parking issue for hotel guests. There was a Texas Ranger game on Wed night and we had gone out to eat for dinner, we returned around 7:15 pm from dinner and the hotel was selling parking spaces to Ranger fans...not a problem except they did not save any spaces for PAYING hotel guests. They told us to valet and they would comp the valet fee...the $12.00 valet fee showed up on our bill at checkout. They hotel did take the fee off when he inquired, but it's a very deceptive practice. This should be fixed...not good business. Other than this the room was good and the hotel was clean and I would recommend to others...just check your bill before you leave!

Rated 3 out of 5 by slp22 Good stay but Club level not worth it
Great overall stay with nice amenities. Loved the downstairs bar area and restaraunt. I stayed in the club level because the hotel operator told me that there was a private bar or lounge upstairs that would provide complimentary alchoholic beverages as well as snacks, drinks, bottled water, breakfast and privacy all within my hotel rate. When I got there this wasnt true at all. The bar tender told me that they now charge for all drinks and the breakfast was simply basic pastrys. I was very disappointed as I would have never paid the additional rate ... They tried to charge me $20 more for my rate apon checkout but the staff corrected it at my request. Very friendly staff and it was a good stay just not worth the club level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike21 Great hotel with a great View and even better staff
I have been to Washington dozen of times and stayed both in the city and on the outskirts. This was my first time at this hotel and I was wooried about the shuttle. The hotel has 3 shuttles and they are the most reliable ones I ever have taken. This is a very nice hotel that makes up on its few minor shortcomings with great staff and customer service. From checking in with Lemar at the front desk, he knows the true meaning of customer service and he was very nice. One of the best front desk staff I have ever met. He knew my wife and I just arrived tired after a 4 hour drive and went out of his way to make us feel welcome and get us to our room ASAP. The hotel garage is very convenient and the Concierge Lounge for starwwod members is one of the best. We visited it in the evening and in the morning and the offerings are great. It has to have the best view of Washington DC I have ever seen. The lady in the lounge went out of her way in the evening to show us all of the locations and we had a nice conversation with her. this staff is one of the most attentive I have ever seen and I have over 50 stays at Starwood properties this year. This hotel is a must stay and I definately will return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ElevatorNoise Make sure you specify to not be put by elevators
When I checked in, the employee assisting me did get me checked in quickly, however he didn't offer any information on where to go for the breakfast that was included in my room rate. I have never been to a hotel where the employee checking me in didn't make an effort to let me know when and where breakfast was. Also, they put me in a room located directy behind the elevators. Needless to say, I got no sleep due to listening to the elevators go up and down all night long. Make sure you request not to be booked into one of these rooms if you stay here.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bubba27 Facilities lack attention to detail
You have the advantage and simultaneous disadvantage of being in a high traffic point. The worst rating a hotel can earn is "average". It comes from employee attention and thus, the lack of training.
