WELL.. THATS INTERESTING..the old "learning center",as it was called for quite a few years,replaced the flight attendant training facility prior to that..basically it was a nice 1960's version of a college campus dormitory, which had a lovely staircase, where they would take pictures of graduating classes,(flight attendant and agent groups)several downstairs classrooms,a room for makeup and hair classes,a workout room with fitness equipment,a swimming pool and outdoor area with tables,and lots of upstairs rooms for the trainees whether flight attendant or ground personnel,most of which were designed to accommodate more than a couple of people at one was adjacent to the reservations center,niceley landscaped,and also close to the old headquarters building,within a few miles of DFW on the arlington side of the airport..this new facility sounds like a place where american will be "bundling"a training facility,a place for layovers,a conference area for large corporate meetings and maybe a "mini hotel" for people needing a place to stay when attending meetings,conferences with aa or even layovers..the old facility had already been in use to some corporations (no just airlines)as a "mini hotel" rental..of course there was always bus/van service provided for those staying there to get back and forth to the airport..

Years ago, while still in the Corps I had a layover at DFW. Hit the bar with some buds. This jerk at the bar getting drunk and there was something just not right about him. We discussed calling LEO but didn't do it. Later that evening one of our Marines saw him in cuffs being led out. Seems the gent like to hang out in this hotel where the FA laid over. He had assaulted one of them. She was in tears as they led the jackass out. I always felt sorry for her. Good move on AA for some reason seeing her in tears never left my mind.

Just wait until the first passenger on a cancelled or delayed flight is told there are no hotel rooms in the area, and the pax sics the lawyer on the airline for baldfaced lying.
