Positive Reviews

Walking Distance

The hotel may not be in the center of the action but it is within walking distance to all tourist destinations. Plenty of museums are steps away. Klyde Warren Park, Symphony Hall, American Airlines Center and the Chase Tower are all less than a mile from the hotel.

President's Club

Wi-Fi is complimentary for Fairmont President's Club members. You're welcome to join - it's free! Aside from free Wi-Fi, guests receive many other perks when staying at Fairmont hotels worldwide. Perks vary by location. There is a surcharge for Wi-Fi for non-members.

Rooftop Pool

Guests loved the rooftop junior Olympic size pool, with gorgeous city skyline views and poolside service. In the summer, the hotel hosts movie nights by the pool.

Negative Reviews

Weak A/C

All rooms have air conditioning and most guests have had no issues with it. However, several guests complained about their room being too hot and stuffy and that their A/C unit didn't cool the room properly, even when running on full blast. A quick tip from guests: If your room feels too warm, try closing the curtains upon departure to keep the strong Dallas sun from heating the room.

Slow Service

If you're in a hurry, plan to get to the valet ahead of time. Guest thought the valet area was understaffed and the service there was too slow. Unfortunately, only valet parking is available onsite.

Odd Hours

Guests thought that the Starbucks and the restaurant onsite opened too late and closed too early. The restaurant had hours most guests found inconvenient. Because the hotel is partially located in the financial district, many cafes and restaurants nearby are closed on the weekends. However, there are plenty of great options within a short walk.
