My wife and are new Texans so we decided to get away gfor the weekend and see some of Texas. We decided on the closest city first, Dallas. We took in a Rangers game, the Dallas World Aquarium, Sixth Floor Museum, the West End, brunch at Tom
Collichio's Craft and a WWE PPV at the AA Center. The great part of this iteniarairy was the Fiarmont was in the middle of it all. We drove to Arlington for the game and took a cab to Craft (we were in dress clothes and it was hot), but those were the only times we used the car all weekend. When we got to the hotel, we got the first of only a few unpleasantries out of the way when we found out parking was $21 a day (but what do you expect, the Red Roof it ain't). However we were able to check in at 11:30 when it was scheduled for 3 PM, which was awesome. The room was great, bedding was awesome, not a great view, but I wasn't expecting one. Only bad thing in the room was you cvould hear the AC water running contantly, but at night it was kind of soothing, so whatever. TV was awesome and bathroom was nice and spacious. The one thing you should do if you are Fairmont vigin like we were is enroll in thier FREE President's club. We got perks (free shoeshine, late check-out at 2 PM, instead of 12:30) all weekend and all it costs was 15 minutes before the trip. The concierge was helpful and already had pre-printed directions to the Ballpark which was very handy. The only bad thing about the probert was the pool. When we got there it had no towels (later remedied, the pool itself had stuff (more than likely crete myrtle, the stuff was everywhere up there)and the vaccum was in the pool (I'm pretty sure it was chasing me) but still relxing and a great location on the roof a few stories up. We took sahowers bot afternnons and a nap to follow, when we asked for more towels each time, the beds were remade and turned down upon our arrival each night. This place was fantastic and I can not wait to stay here again.
The pool and the surrounding area are wonderful. The pool is much larger than most hotel pools with very comfortable chairs and areas to get out of sun. The breakfast for the gold floors was wonderful. We will definitely be back.
This was our second trip to the Fairmont, and while our weekend plans changed somewhat due to the unexpectedly cool, rainy weather, we still had a wonderful time in Dallas, thanks to the staff at the Fairmont. They did everything they could to
make sure we enjoyed our stay--pointed us to the best restaurants, called to let us know when something special was going on in the hotel lounge, found an obscure newspaper at our request, etc. Wonderful. Plus, the hotel itself was just beautiful. We'll be back again next time, no doubt.
We had a fabulous time at the hotel the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms, lobby, restaurant and hotel itself were beautiful. I enjoyed every aspect of this hotel and my stay there. The only thing to keep in mind is that it can be
very expensive, the prices were very high but most everything was worth the expense! I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
