There are two airports in the Dallas, TX area, the Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW) and Love Field Airport (DAL). It is about a fifteen minute drive from either airport to the Omni Mandalay Hotel, in Irving, TX.

Parking

Transportation to the Hotelomni

Uber/Lyft and Taxis

The quickest transportation option is to take an Uber/Lyft or taxi from the airport to the hotel. From both DFW and DAL, an Uber or Lyft typically runs from $18-$20, or a taxi is typically $25 depending on traffic and time of day. Depending on traffic, it is about 10-20 minutes from either airport to or from the hotel.

 

Dallas Airport Rapid Transit (DART)

Another option for transportation from both DFW and DAL is the DART train.

Travel from DFW Airport to Omni Mandalay Hotel

To use the DART from the DFW Airport, you will first need to get to Terminal A, Gate 10. If you did not check a bag, take the Skylink to Terminal A and follow the signs to DART Rail. If you did check a bag, go to the upper level of the airport after retrieving your bag and take the Terminal Link bus to Terminal A, Gate 10 and follow the signs to DART Rail. Buy a DART pass ($2.50 for 2 hours) and board the Orange Line Train bound for Las Colinas Urban Center Station. Call the front desk at the Omni Mandalay Hotel (972-556-0800) upon boarding the DART Rail at the airport and request their shuttle to pick you up at the Las Colinas Urban Center station approximately 20 minutes from your departure time. The shuttle is complimentary, but is based upon availability.

Travel from DAL Airport to Omni Mandalay Hotel

To use the DART from the DAL Airport, catch the DART local bus service #524 outside of the baggage claim area, along the row of rental car shuttle pick-ups, to the Inwood/Love Field Station. Buy a DART pass while on the bus ($1.75 cash for one and a half hours) that is valid for both the bus and the DART rail. Go up the platform to board the Orange Line Train bound for DFW Airport, travelling just four stops along the line to the Las Colinas Urban Center Station. Call the front desk at the Omni Mandalay Hotel (972-556-0800) upon boarding the DART Rail to request their shuttle to pick you up at the Las Colinas Urban Center station approximately 20 minutes from your departure time.
