The nicest hotel in Texas is the Grand Hyatt DFW, no foolin'. So says Expedia, at least, which ranks the airport hotel, connected to Dallas/Fort Worth International's Terminal D, at No. 41 amongst all the hotels on the face of the entire planet, go figure. Fret not: The folks at HotelChatter didn't buy it either, which is why today they set out to dissect the Expedia® Insiders' Select™ listing by giving the Grand Hyatt DFW a thorough going-over. Their conclusion: Sure, it's nice, whatever. --Robert Wilonsky
