Were you ever able to find the right house?
If you're still looking or need help just let me know?
If you found the right house, what city did you end up in?
What helped you make your decision.
As for hotels, check out tripadvisor.com. I found that they are a good resource whenever I need to travel. Some hotels may give you a break for an extended stay. If you absolutely have to look at both Plano and Fort Worth then yes, Dallas will be a good choice to live.
Give me a call when you are in the area, I'd be happy to help you find the right home for you and your family. You can also check my website at http://www.dfwdreamhomes.net for the most updated listings on the market!

As many agents had already mentioned that Ft worth and Plano area are about 30-40 mins apart. So just prepared for a bit of driving.
I would recommend staying in Plano by the Shops at Legacy which you will easily find lot of restaurant and entertainment.
here is a link for the hotel in the area - http://www.expedia.com/Hotel-Search?gclid=CMycrLzz97cCFSxk7A
Please let me know if I can be any help to find you and your family a new home.

I agree with the other agents. I would think Dallas would be a midpoint between Ft Worth and Plano. Plano is only about 30 mins. From Dallas. I am sure you are already using sites like trip advisor rentals, priceline, booking, etc. for hotel rates and where to stay. Keep in mind ......Traffic is a nightmare in pretty all the major frwy from 7am-10a.m. AND 3/4pm-7pm!!! So add an extra 30mins-1 hr to the commute if you go during rush hour
You might consider Grapevine, it's sort of central between the two areas. Very nice town. The downtown is cute. They have the Gaylord Texan, very nice hotel. They also have Great Wolf Lodge, and your stay includes their whole indoor water park. Those might be more than you're wanting to spend, but anything around Grapevine is probably in a good area. I also recommend Grapevine Mills Mall - they have a Rainforest Cafe.
Also stop in the Stockyards in Fort Worth - historical.
