Hyatt Regency DFW

3 03 2012

After my long flight from Australia, I stayed overnight at the Hyatt Regency at Dallas Fort Worth Airport. You HAVE to call and get the shuttle to pick you up. Even though the hotel is at the airport, there’s no easy way to get to it from Terminal D (international terminal).

The reception people were most helpful in answering some questions I had, as was the concierge in finding out that T-Mobile has a store in the Grapevine Mills Mall, which was a lot closer to the hotel than the Irving Mall I was going to take a cab to. Also, the Grapevine area had an hourly shuttle service for $5 return, which dropped me right near the correct entrance to the mall for T-Mobile. Within 10 mins of checking in to the hotel, I was on the shuttle, and once I got to the mall, I had a US SIM card for my phone all sorted within 15 mins. The staff at the Hyatt saved me an expensive cab ride to the Irving Mall!

The room was nice and typical for that level hotel. I had a view over the Terminal C tarmac so could watch the planes come in and out (not that I did that for more than 30 seconds!).

I had dinner in the hotel’s Grill restaurant — an excellent Roast Chicken and Tortilla soup, and a ‘wedge salad’, which was a wedge of iceberg lettuce, with crispy smoked apple bacon, blue cheese and blue cheese dressing, and a decent slab of grilled skinless chicken as well.

Here are some photos of my room and the meal (the colour was a bit washed out for the food photos); click on a small image to see it full size:
