This athletic-minded hotel is situated in the Galleria District of Dallas. With a Starbucks in the lobby and a better than average gym, two of many traveler's favorite things are covered! Other nice touches are the poolside game options of foosball and ping pong and free shuttle to the Galleria. The mid-rise 547 room hotel offers well styled rooms equipped with free bottled water, mini fridge, coffee maker, and 32" LCD TVs. Internet access is not free.
Marriott's fitness center is above average and stocked primarily with Life Fitness cardio machines and Hoist stack loaded weight stations. The overall ambiance of the workout room is great: colorful floors and walls, flat screen televisions, and a glass wall allowing fitness fiends to overlook Marriott's outdoor pool. All cardio machines have personal televisions attached. Along with the six weight stations, there is a multi-gym and dumbbells up to 50 pounds.
Lap swimmers should head to 24 Hour Fitness-Addison, as Marriott's outdoor pool is a shorty.
