Hotel should be shut until renovation is complete

Being converted to a La Quinta and renovation is underway. My perfectly civil review of the hotel is being blocked because it's supposedly profane. The hotel does not even deserve a single star at the current time. Almost want to ask for my money back.

Best location possible

The location is about the only thing this hotel has going for itself. I completely understand that it is an historic building, but that is no excuse to have all old amenities. Overall if you're looking for a great downtown location then this is the one. Otherwise go ahead and spend a few extra dollars for another hotel.

Don't expect a 4 star, be prepared

The hotel is under remodeling to become a Ramada. The bar and restaurant are closed as a result. The room is comfortable and has a great desk. I could see the Book Depository out the window. The staff were as friendly as any staff I have ever experienced. The common areas are quite tired and the elevator looks like something you would find in the projects. Internet is not strong, but always worked. Full breakfast was great. Lobby and hallways were a little dim. You would pay double or triple to stay anywhere near here. I would stay again but it will be interesting to see what happens to the price once it is a fully remodeled.

Great location and price

Great hotel for the money you pay. By far the best location in downtown Dallas, even better than Hyatt. The hotel is not posh, but decent. The rooms are clean and have all that you need. There is a pretty decent breakfast in the mornings and cookies & coffee in the lobby every evening. There's an affordable parking lot right behind the hotel. The hotel is old, but I personally don't care much about the looks as long as it's safe and clean. The staff was very nice. The only two things I didn't like this time was that the Internet signal was not always great, and that the AC in the room didn't work properly. The thermostat on the wall had no relation to the unit, although there was a notice on the unit stating otherwise. We had to turn the heater on and off constantly because the climate control didn't work, so it was either going to be on or off the whole night, which meant too hot or too cold. But it was alright. I guess it was just our room.

Great downtown location.

Older hotel and not as tidy as could be. Could use upgrading inside and newer amenities. Located downtown and is easy walking distance to many important areas of the city.

ummm surprise

We needed a hotel downtown and this one look quiant and eclectic on the pictures but it is old and run down and seems like most people just live here on the cheap all year. it is not really a hotel but a downtown hostel sort of place. we nearly left but stuck it out and got the heck out of there. only minutes from jfk site. spend the extra money and stay at the Hyatt across the street and feel safe its worth it.
