This elegant 14-story hotel, near the tangled intersection of I–35 and US 290, earns high marks for value, but feels removed from the city, despite being only three miles from downtown. The property has a resort air, with a huge marbled lobby; full-service restaurant (albeit overpriced); indoor-outdoor heated pool; large exercise room, whirlpool, and sauna; and modest spa. Rooms are decorated with classic restraint, which some might find stuffy. Upper floors have views
of the downtown skyline. A city bus stop is within walking distance; a free shuttle services the airport.
