Beyond brand typical near the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW)
By Hope S. Philbrick
If you think you know Courtyard Marriott, the Grapevine, Texas location is ready to challenge your preconceived notions.
This is no seen-one/seen-them-all hotel.
This place seems to prove that they do indeed build things bigger in Texas.
To say that the lobby is spacious doesn’t quite convey that it has one big space that spills into another big space and then another between the front door and elevators. It’s all decorated in ultra-modern, swanky-chic style with pops of hot pink and bright orange nestled among shades of gray. It’s not the sort of lobby that gets ignored. Its seats fill up with guests who want to use a media pod, meet with colleagues and fellow travelers, or relax with a cup of coffee.
You could comfortably hang out in the lobby, but then you’d miss out on the grandeur that is the guestroom. My larger king guestroom offered enough space to waltz or do cartwheels, if I’d been so inclined. But even in a standard king or double queen room, you wouldn’t need to bump elbows with a travel companion (unless you wanted to). A king with a whirlpool tub is also available if you crave a soak.
The bed is so cozy that you may find it hard to roll out of bed each morning of your stay, but of course you will want to get out and explore Grapevine as much as your itinerary allows.
If work is the focus of your visit, each guestroom offers a functional workspace so you can be as productive as you need to be.
Helpful staff members are ready to assist with restaurant recommendations, driving directions, extra towels or whatever you need to make your stay more pleasant.
For business, pleasure or a bit of both, Courtyard Marriott Grapevine is where to kick off your boots.
