Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Arlington
Evacu-cation (Evacuation Vacation)
We stayed here four nights as part of an Evacuation Vacation from Hurrican Rita. The rooms were spacious enough that three adults, a child, and infant did not hurt each other. The staff was fantastic dealing with its second wave of evacuees, since they had already dealt with Katrina. Rooms are clean. Location great for restaraunts and sites for both Dallas and Ft. Worth. Only complaint was difficulty in getting a comfortable water temperature since the hot water was scalding. I would definitely stay here again.
Near the top
This hotel treated me well several times. Professional staff, great location, good semi-luxury room value, clean, free parking, quality dining, and a lounge with friendly folks. Near airport and many steakhouses theme park, baseball park attractions. I have stayed at all places nearby and this is near the top.
Hotel Nice, Security Terrible
We stayed at the Arlington Hilton On July 13-July 16. On the 14th we went to Six Flags. While we were there we left our Suburban at the Hotel and took the shuttle to Six Flags. During the middle of the day at the hotel parking lot our vehicle was broken into they broke a window and they stole our Mobile DVD Player that was attached to the inside of the car . They also took my son's Xbox and my briefcase which had my passport in it. We were in a hurry that morning and I forgot to take the Xbox out and my briefcase. That night they broke into another vehicle at the hotel and then again on Friday night it happened again. They were very friendly and apologetic but did not seem to do anything about the security. The room was real nice and the beds were comfortable. Also the police did not even come out they just took the report over the phone. The General Manager who was on vacation when this happened offered to pay for half of my deductible on my insurance which was nice and he said he would send a check but I still have not received anything. If I did not have my vehicle broken into it would have been a nice stay. But I can't say that I would stay there again because I would fear that my vehicle would be broke into again.
Great Hotel but Too Many Kids!
I stayed at the Hilton in Arlington in mid-July. The room was booked and paid for by a company I was in town to visit, so I had no choice in the matter.
The hotel itself was great - the bed was one of the MOST comfortable I've ever slept in. The feather duvet and 5 feather pillows made for a very comfortable night's sleep.
The bathroom and the rest of the room were also nice.
My only gripe: the hotel was FULL of kids aged 3-15. They were running all over the lobby dripping wet from the pool, screaming in the hallways, etc. This did not seem to bother the parents, but I have no kids and can not tune such obnoxious noise out.
I realize that this is to be expected given the hotel's proximity to Six Flags, however I had no choice in where I stayed on this trip.
If you do not want to be around screaming kids, I would suggest staying elsewhere. If you can tune out the noise and want a GREAT room and one of the best beds - the Hilton Arlington is for you.
We travel to Arlington several times a year. We have stayed at several different hotels through out the arlington area. We have never stayed at the Hilton of arlington and as of this weekend we will never stay anywhere except for the hilton of Arlington. This hotel was great, clean rooms, very polite staff, they have the MOST comfortable beds i've ever stayed in. Next time your in arlington got to the hilton.
Near Perfect Stay
We stayed at Hilton over the weekend. The room was absolutely perfect. The beds were very comfortable with pillow-topper mattress, 4 feather pillows on each bed, and down blankets. The room was spotless. Wonderful view with floor to ceiling windows. The rest of the hotel was very nice & clean, and the staff was very courteous.
Stayed at this property for the second time Aug 7, 2004. Priceline bid 3 star $55. Hotel staff friendly & helpful. Rooms very clean and nice. Comfy beds and good view of Six Flags. Property & pool were all clean & well maintained. Used hotel shuttle van to transport several of us in town for cruise party at Ballpark. Front desk did not offer us shuttle service when we asked about Trolley but bartender did & called shuttle for us.
We didn't try Conrad's but loved September's (onsite club) Excellent bartenders (Rashud) & wait staff. Fun atmoshere, live band, dancing & good drinks. Open till 2AM.
I loved the hotel & service I received and will definetly return to this property again in the future.
I rate it 5 stars.
Three stars. Good place if you don't overpay.
Okay, just got back from the Hilton, Arlington. Spent Saturday and Sunday night 7/17 and 7/18 2004. Here's the deal. This is a simple, pleasant, no frills hotel. Lots of familes and kids. Three stars is exactly what it deserves. I didn't book on priceline cause I've seen the other local hotels which are much worse and i didn't want to take a chance, so unlike some of the other people on here, I paid $109. I don't feel totally ripped, but if you don't have to be in Arlington, the HILTON hotels in Dallas proper are much nicer...and strangely enough cost less...even on Hilton's own website!
The restaurant downstairs is nothing to talk about. Skip it. The bar is alright...though the bartenders and staff in general were extremely friendly.
Couple of notes. The pillows aren't great...and are a cut lower than I've had at other Hilton hotels.
And Friday night there was no hot water at Midnight...a small oversight apparently cause they slipped a note under the door saturday night to tell us they were turning off the water at Midnight...for construction reasons.
They have a bounceback weekend special which includes full breakfast for two for only ten dollars more...I booked this on line thinking that that was a room service situation like most other hotels have when they have their weekend getaways. Instead, it's just a coupon for the buffet breakfast at the restaurant downstairs which is really not much more than eggs and cereal. Skip it.
Also they are going through construction right now through mid August which they do not reveal until you are there. I was there on the weekend so really can't say if the noise level is a problem on the weekdays when the construction crews work.
For $50-$60 a night the place is a steal. For $110...you're better off at a Dallas Hilton or spending a couple of bucks more and staying at a top of the line place in the city. The crescent hotel is beautiful. And across the street is Hotel za za... a very cool and funky L.A style place where the Dallas hipsters hang out by the pool on the weekend night. I'd probably stay there next time. It's a mini skybar in dallas. Fun place to go.
Perfect in Every Way
I made an emergency stop here with my 3 children, one being a sick infant. I had help everywehre I went and never had to do anything alone! Once I checked in, they provided a baby bed, old but OK. Late that night I needed to run to my car but didn't want to leave my children alone. They sent their security gaurd up to stand gaurd at the room while I made my run. When I was ready to check out, they sent Carlos to my room. He came into our room, loaded up our things, took them down and loaded my car while I tended to my hyper little sweeties.
Room service was fabulous with the best apple pancakes ever. (The eggs benedict was a little overcooked and the oatmeal was too thick, but oh well.) If I ever need to stop with my children again, this is where it will be!

... to recall the events of that day. The cockroach museum lightened things up for us- it was a quick, but memorable stop( wink, wink!). Our drive to Austin was full of exclamations-"Blue Bonnets!! Blue Bonnets on the right!!" The roadside was so colorful. Once in Austin, it was fried chicken at Lucy's- fun to sit out in the cool evening air with a tin bucket of fried chicken- and some FRIED deviled eggs. Yep- gotta get a cholesterol check once we return ...
