There was an exciting weekend planned, two great high school playoff games, and my first stay with Homewood Suites by Hilton Dallas Arlington South.
I would be spending Friday night at Homewood Suites by Hilton Dallas Arlington South. Didn’t know what to expect, but my spirits were lifted after watching Redwater drop a heart-breaker to Mount Vernon. There were still pleasant memories after seeing Texas High lose a shootout to Highland Park the next day at the Ford Center in Frisco.
It’s no exaggeration that yours truly has literally stayed at hundreds of hotels and motels during a 46-year sports writing career. My night at Homewood Suites by Hilton was second to none of the others, maybe a little cheaper.
There were adjustments to be made, starting with my pass key, and the light switch. Modern technology is something else. There’s also something to be said about comfort, and relaxing in front of a large, flat-screen television with nearly 100 channels.
The kitchenette featured a full-sized refrigerator, lots of storage space, a sink and even a dishwasher to my surprise.
The living quarters featured a desk, lamp, cushioned chair and lots of plug-ins for my IPad and phone charger.
The soft sofa was turned into a storage area for my clothes and cases, although there was a large closet if needed.
Homewood Suites by Hilton had plenty to offer
Perhaps the best thing was the king size bed, loaded with four cool pillows. There was plenty of room to set up my bi-pap machine with visible plug-ins to power it.
Surely you’ve been sold on the room by now. There was so much offered, and not enough time to enjoy. There was a beautiful pool area, computer room, breakfast area, that was complimentary for the customers.
The hotel’s staff made this visit perfect. Didn’t ask for a lot, but what was asked for, was handled quickly, and to my satisfaction.
It’s location is another plus. Less than a mile from a modern shopping mall. Approximately 10 minutes to AT&T Stadium for Cowboys football, or a concert. The very same for a Texas Rangers baseball game.
My thanks to Jack Daugherty, Mike Daugherty, Brian Daugherty, and Director of Operations David Henderson. Look forward to my next trip to Arlington.
