Since I have stayed in this hotel multiple times and there is no review here on MilePoint I thought I'd post my review of the hotel as a service to others. The hotel is part of the D wing and is very convenient for AA fliers. The lobby is above the main terminal level and can be accessed by the elevator or escalator. The restaurant and coffee shop are on the same level and offer a nice dining experience. IME, diamond members are routinely upgraded to suites without having to use UG certs, which is a great benefit since I hate burning my certs for 1-night stays. Rooms are modern with standard amenities (grand bed, Portico toiletries, flat screen Tv, etc.). Views of the runways are great and the inside stays quiet despite the proximity of active runways. The spa/gym/pool are on the top floor and offer standard set of machines/treatments. I believe the spa services have to be ordered in advance b/c the masseuse is not a full time employee. The pool is smallish but adequate. It also gives unobstructed views of the runways for the enthusiasts. As a guest at the hotel you can have access to the secure area of the airport without a boarding pass. Just ask the front desk and they will call the police officer who will come and issue a pass. You go down to the terminal level, hand the pass to TSA and go through. This is great for dining and shopping in duty-free shops (terminal D is international mostly). You can also use sky-link to go to other terminals, too. The parking is free in the DFW garage - you have to have your ticket validated at the front desk.
