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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LRshow Wonderful staff and services.
The staff was so nice in making sure you were pleased with the hotel and the services. I was especially impressed with Linda in the restaurant. She was very friendly and personable and treated me more like family than a guest. She anticipated my every need. I never had to ask for anything. Michael, the morning waiter was also nice and pleasant.
The shuttle service was a wonderful feature though I stayed at the hotel the entire time because I was so comfortable.

Our stay at this Sheraton was a last minute ideal to get away. We could not have been more pleased with the hotel and our stay. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and the amenities are great!. The restaurants, gorgeous pool area, fitness center, and extremely courteous staff made this a great stay. We had a city view room which provided beautiful views of Washington D.C. especially at night. It is also very close to so many attractions and the national mall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ThatOne Can't believe this is a convention hotel
I was extremely disappointed in the hotel as a convention hotel. Our room was not ready until after 7:30 p.m. We ate in the restaurant for lunch one day. The restaurant was horribly understaffed. My friend and I ordered at the same time. However, her lunch took 45 minutes longer to be delivered to our table. We missed a session at our conference because lunch took almost 2 hours. As a convention hotel, I would expect a much higher level of preparedness.

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!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mixer22 Really enjoyed staying here for the weekend during our football activities
We booked 5 rooms for the weekend of the OSU vs Fla St. game. Had stayed here before for TX Ranger games. Location is perfect for activities at Ranger Stadium or at AT&T Stadium. Easy walk to either facility. The rooms are nice, Staff is helpful and friendly. Food was excellent. Delbert was our server in the restaurant for breakfast for 2 mornings. He and Sergio, who assisted were excellent, friendly, and attentive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kingming71 This hotel was amazing
Upon arrival we received a call to make sure everything was ok in the room and to see if we needed anything. The room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. We were on the club level and received excellent service. We liked the fact that this was a upscale hotel that allowed us to bring along our pet. It was both pet and kid friendly and in close proximity to shopping and dining. We will always use Sheraton for our home away from home.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Deanne48 Needs updating, room319 directly over party room!
Room 319 was directly over a banquet/ party room. We didn't just hear bass until 11:30 (tried to go to bed at 10, due to early wake up next day) we heard every word of music and the laughing and talking of guest. This room (and probably two or three others located above these facilities) should not be used when a function/ event with loud music is being held in banquet room. I was by far not the last one to check in that day. I wasn't given the option to cancel and go to another hotel. With three calls to management starting at 10 and giving up at 11, I was told "that hotel was full, we couldn't be moved, and someone had to be in that room". NO, I could have been given option at check-in to at the very least cancel reservation and go to another hotel. This hotel is definitely showing wear and tear and the rooms and hallways are in need of updates.

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 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 5 out of 5 by BallparkFan A very comfortable hotel, great location
This hotel is within walking distance to Globe Life Park, a great place to see the Rangers (or in my case the Phillies) and not have to worry about traffic to/from the ballpark. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and exceptionally quiet which isn't always the case in some hotels, As a solo traveler, I felt safe. The common areas were clean and well-maintained. Overall, my trip to Arlington was awesome.

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!

The bathrooms are old school. Also the carpets had bed cleaned and was still wet when we arrived....yuck!
The coffee shop only had one worker on a very buzy morning after a major football game...not very good planning on staffing

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bill1046 Problems with checkout
While my stay was otherwise ok, the checkout process was very bad. I checked out at 11:15 am when it was not busy, and there was only one person there to help. The lady before me had trouble in getting checked out and I had the same problem. He seemed very slow with the procedures and in both cases said he had to go upstairs and talk to someone in management about some problem. It was very strange. One of the worst checkouts ever!

The bellman was wonderful and made us feel welcome - left us with a great first impression (we arrived 5/16/12 around 4:30 PM - I wish I could remember his name).
The luxury of morning coffee and a bite to eat, and winding down at the end of the day with a glass of wine in Club 1801 was a special treat made even better by Carla, who served us in the evening.
Had a delicious hamburger in the bar, but otherwise, no "warm fuzzies".

the location for attending sporting events nearby is excellent; however, the promised shuttle service from and to the airport never materialized - the hotel phone number went unanwered for 20 minutes while we called for a shuttle from the airport, so we had to take a taxi; when we wanted to return to the airport, we were told the shuttle was full and we'd have to take another taxi - needless expense, which was very diasappointing

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gresser Making a Difference
I have been staying with you for the past 3 months every week and everyone from Skyler and his staff, Jesse out front and his guys guys, Alberto in the lounge, Kim in VIP services, Dan the all around man on the property, all have made me really feel at home. Dawn even gave me and my team some Ranger tickets. I would like to go to a Dallas game also.. Even the cleaning ladies on 19 have been great. I do want to mention that for the last 2 weeks I've had some issues at the front desk. 2 weeks ago my pants were not sent out on Friday morning so when I got back on Sunday, no pants for work on Monday. Yesterday I got back around noon and told them on Friday that I would be back early on Sunday. I was told no problem my room would be ready at noon. Didn't happen and Skyler jumped to get it ready for me. He comes to work to make a difference, some come to work for a pay check. Once you know who's who, problem solved. One more thing, the rug in my room really needs a good cleaning, 1823 also,stains.
Great place and great people for the most part, thanks. Chris B.

Rated 3 out of 5 by poepettit Good Hotel but Pool Area Needs Improvement
I thought the hotel was good until my daughter and I went to the pool area to swim on Sunday morning. It appeared that a party was there the night before because there was a bunch of trash all over the area. On top of that, there were leftover cigarettes on the steps of the pool. I ended up turning around and taking my daughter back to the room. It was just a nasty experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jackie30 This hotel needs a major overhaul
First - staff service and food were excellent. Not so much the hotel itself. The carpet and chairs in my room all had large stains. The air conditioning unit over the shower was leaking when I checked in - thankfully that stopped soon. The faucet for the shower was ready to fall off. Took a long time to get hot water and the pillows on the bed (4 of them) had absolutely no firmness to them - it was very hard for me to sleep.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sendo31 Parking Dissaster
I had a 5hr drive and was ready to relax. The only issue I had with this Hotel stay was the parking and parking staff. I understand that there was a Baseball Game going on down the street but not having any convenient parking for a customer is unacceptable. I told the parking attendant that I was staying at the hotel and gave me a look as I was lying to him since they were charging for parking due the game.

Although the bed was very comfortable, the overall service was not. After 11PM on a Friday and even through Saturday mid day, housekeeping nor the front desk was available for service. We requested towels at 1030p on Friday and didnt receive them until Saturday 830AM after another 5th request. The front desk stopped answering calls after 11P on a Friday and the '0' went the hotel's recorded voicemails multiple times.

I've stayed at this Sheraton on numerous occasions. I love it. It's now attached to the Arlington Convention Center. Six Flags is within walking distance. The Texas Rangers' stadium is within walking distance. There are many restaurants with a variety of choices nearby. The rates have always been reasonable. The accommodations are nice and comfortable. I always look forward to staying here, and I will return soon!

Sold out weekend and hotel was very understaffed. Calls to front desk took 4-5 minutes to answer, front desk always had line. Ceiling in bathroom was rusty and peeling and badly needed painting. When we asked if we needed reservations for airport shuttle we were told no, only to find out we did and shuttle was fully booked. Hotel is convenient to Cowboy Stadium and shuttle service to nearby resturants was very good.

Staff was unfriendly and not very helpful. When I went to the restaurant they acted as though I was bothering them from their other duties. They didn't seem to be concerned when we had other needs like the internet kept floating in and out.
I love Starwood and have never had service like this in any of the hotels I have stayed in... I am still a starwood fan but when in Arlington will stay at a different location
