Hyatt Regency DFW: Fine for Freddy’s (And Business Travelers)

Hyatt Regency DFW Hotel Review is part of Freddy Awards to New Orleans Binge Weekend Trip Report which covers:


Looking for a place to stay in Dallas while Attending the Freddy’s? Check out the Hyatt Regency DFW. Looking for a place to stay near terminal C while flying American? Check out the Hyatt Regency DFW. It’s no Hyatt Regency ORD (see Hyatt Regency O’Hare: The Best Airport Hotel), but there are some things that make it interesting.

Let’s start with the bad

First, it’s not the prettiest Hyatt Regency in the collection. Second, first call is at 2PM and last call is at midnight. Neither made the travel community happy. The post Freddy’s party was cut short way too early.

Now for the strange

Why does this hotel have an outdoor pool? At least one person fell asleep by it so there must be some demand.

Now for the dumb

There’s an airport shuttle to get to the hotel. It took forever. The Skylink is not connected to it.

I’m at a payphone.

Now for the room

King size bed and the normal amenities.

And the view?

Not as good as the Westin Detroit but still nice to see the planes coming and going.

How about the art?

Coffee and water provided

Yes, there’s a bathroom

Overall

For 8k points and for the convenience of actually being at DFW, not off-site, the Hyatt Regency DFW did the job.

  1. Forgive my reiterating a stupid question here, but isn’t the hotel actually within the airport? If so, why the shuttle bus? I’ve thought about using this hotel in the past, but if I have to take a shuttle, why not stay somewhere else?

      • Sorry, I was thinking of the Grand Hyatt, which I’d seen signs for on previous trips. I didn’t know there was a Hyatt Regency. My bad.
