Marriott Hotels have consistently made the "Worst" list on our Annual Hotel WiFi Report but one Marriott is trying to change that.

The Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Virginia--Marriott's second and longest-operating hotel--let us know that the hotel is "finally moving into the 21st century" by joining with AT&T to put fast WiFi in all the guest rooms, suites, meeting spaces and the lobby.

Due to the switch, guests can get online faster and have up to 12 times more bandwidth and reliable connectivity. To celebrate the new wireless provider, the hotel is offering free WiFi for all guests in the guestrooms on May 16 and May 17. The only catch is the WiFi will only have a 2-megabytes per second (mbps) capacity.

Super Bowl XLV Hotels Set to Party All Weekend

February 4, 2011 at 10:30 AM | by | ()

The game may not start until Sunday night, but Dallas-Ft. Worth-area hotels have already started their Super Bowl XLV parties, with the Bud Light Hotel (aka Aloft Dallas Downtown) leading the charge. Last night, The Fray and Lifehouse played the hotel's heated party tent. Tonight, it's the Playboy party with Snoop Dogg, Warren G and Flo Rida. Saturday's show features the unlikely combination of Ke$ha and Nelly.

Elsewhere, the "Leather & Laces" party will take over the Hotel ZaZa, with next door girls Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt hosting on Saturday night. And the Embassy Suites DFW Airport North is hosting a charity event Saturday night with Carmen Electra, Bill and Giuliana Rancic and Aubrey O'Day that they're ambitiously calling "The Best Party in Texas." Seems unlikely!

Know of a hotel room open for Super Bowl? Tell us where right here.

The game is almost upon us and rooms can still be had in the Dallas-Fort Worth area at sometimes surprisingly low rates for February 6. We scanned prices this morning with our custom hotel search tool, looking at those properties as close as possible to Cowboys Stadium that still had vacancies.

The SpringHill Suites Arlington, where rooms are big enough to have your friends crash, are selling for $518.

La Quinta Dallas-Arlington North is going for $549, which is probably the most we've ever seen a La Quinta charge.

The Hawthorn Suites DFW is a shade cheaper at $509.

After this past weekend's wildcard games, with shocking wins by the Seahawks and the Jets, the race to Dallas for Super Bowl XV has now officially begun. And so has the race for hotel rooms.

We've been keeping tabs on Dallas-area hotels with availability here and surprisingly, several legit hotels still have rooms open.

The first is the Admiral Hotel which is just two miles from Cowboy Stadium. The hotel tells us they have free WiFi and and onsite Sports Bar and Grille and Club. For rates for Super Bowl weekend call 817-640-7712.

There Should Be Plenty of Hotel Rooms for Super Bowl XLV in Dallas But Where?

December 23, 2010 at 1:20 PM | by | ()

Know of a hotel room open for Super Bowl? Tell us where right here.

We haven't even celebrated Christmas or New Year's yet but we've already got our minds tuned into the Super Bowl XLV Hotel Scene in Dallas.

The other week we told you that there were still plenty of somewhat reasonable options near Cowboy Stadium and a few commenters added a couple of other suggestions too.

But before you start to get worried that all the hotels will get booked out, the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee has recently gone on record saying that, "There are enough hotel rooms in the area to accommodate all of the Super Bowl travelers coming in."

Which means doing home rentals of any sort will not be necessary. That is, unless you want all of your old fraternity brothers to watch the game together.

So now what other hotels still have availability for Super Bowl XV?

Where to Get Super Bowl XLV Hotel Rooms in Dallas

December 15, 2010 at 9:26 AM | by | ()

Know of a hotel room open for Super Bowl? Tell us where right here.

We know that getting a hotel room for Super Bowl is always tough goings as most hotels tend to sell out a year before the big game. Heck, the JW Marriott Indianapolis is not even open and it's already sold-out for Super Bowl 2012.

But things look rather dire in and around Dallas where the Super Bowl is happening on February 6. According to WFAA, 24,000 hotel rooms in the Dallas, Collin, Denton and Tarrant counties are under contract for use by the NFL during Super Bowl weekend and hotels up to 50 miles away are reportedly booked up. Still not all hope is lost. Just your cash.
