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.

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.

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.

great location

Great location. I was told to park in the lot behind the building for $10 machine took my money but didn't print out anything ended up with a $50 ticket on my car but at least they didn't tow. Only one elevator was working so when staying on the 7th floor you would have to wait a little bit to go up or down. Other than that lovely stay and would comfortablly stay there again.

It was ok...

The stay was cool. Didn't want anything major, just in downtown Dallas to hang out without going back home. The hospitality was subpar. Not too much interactions with guests. Place could've used some touching up in regards to the inside decor. (We stayed on e 10th floor)

great location.

friendly staff, good area, downtown, building looks dated, but clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice breakfast, small fitness room, but if you want exercise park is across the street. about a 8.00 dollar cab ride to downtown, hard rock or house of blues. great coffee, cookies at night, subway restaurant across the street, parking available at the hotel 10 dollars, all day and night safe and secure. i would recommend to a friend.

So So Stay

Was not exactly what we wee expecting, didn't provide the services they claimed for pets. Had no hot water the morning we left and breakfast was something not to be desired.

Great location and staff, old building

The hotel was a great location for visiting Dealey Plaza and the American Airlines Center. We walked easily. The hotel is clean and staff genuinely friendly, but it hasn't seen many updates/renovations.
