Set back from the roar of I–35, this handsome five-floor hotel built in 2007 isn't the usual forgettable off-ramp inn. The stylish, postmodern lobby has a breakfast/sandwich bar serving Starbucks drinks, bacon and eggs, sandwiches, beer, and wine most of the day. Crisp and contemporary rooms have Asian-influenced touches like a screen separating the lounge area from the bedroom; all have pull-out sofas, kitchenettes, and ergonomic office chairs. The 42-inch flat-screen
TVs have input ports for hooking up electronic devices like DVD players, gaming systems, and computers. Several okay restaurants are nearby. There's a business center.
