Grand Prairie Hotels - The Five Best Grand Prairie Hotels

texas access south center

Grand Prairie, Texas is one of the “mid-cities” in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. It is west of Dallas, east of Arlington, and south of Irving. Interstate 30 on the north and Interstate 20 on the south both offer easy access to Dallas and Fort Worth, although I-30 provides the shorter distance to the downtown areas. Many entertainment attractions are located in Arlington, such as Six Flags over Texas and the home stadiums for the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers.

Numerous hotels are located just over the city limits between Grand Prairie and Arlington near I-30 as well as on the south side near I-20. Visitors might wish to consider the attractions they plan to visit when selecting lodging. The two main north-south corridors in Grand Prairie, Highway 360 and Carrier Parkway, both are quite congested during rush hour. Therefore, I-30 offers easier access to the entertainment facilities in Arlington while I-20 is preferable for travel to Joe Pool Lake or Dallas’ southern suburbs such as Duncanville.
