If travel brings you to this part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area, feel confident that your healthy lifestyle will be supported by the Marriott Westlake and its neighbor, the Larry North Fitness Club. The property's common areas are upscale and sophisticated with modern and streamlined furnishings. There's a Starbucks onsite and complimentary shuttle to/from DFW airport. Guest rooms are a little more bland, but still welcome with comfortable beds with luxury linens, mini fridge, coffee maker and internet (fee).
Marriott offers guests a 24/7 no-nonsense fitness room stocked with new StarTrac cardio machines, a 5-50 lbs. dumbbell set and a weight-station. But why eat ground beef when filet mignon is available for free next door? Marriott's gym is somewhat cramped with equipment and the variety of endurance and strength equipment naturally pales in comparison to a full-fledged health club's selection. But Larry's isn't 24/7.
After picking up a complimentary pass from the front desk, athletic-minded travelers will find a cornucopia of sweat modalities at LN. Top-of-the-line cardio machines, free weights, classes...even a 3-lane x 25-yard lap pool is available for our fish-like friends. Basketball, racquetball and other court sports are played here too.
Southlake Town Square is next door too and has a bevy of eating options both quick and upscale.
