The Fairmont Dallas is part of the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts brand, a name synonymous with classic luxury and time-honored tradition. Opened in 1969, the hotel is widely considered one of the original luxury resorts in the Dallas area. Guests can visit the rooftop to chill by the pool beneath the bright Texas sky. In the evenings, the Pyramid Restaurant & Bar offers alternative dining - straying from typical Texan fare, dishes like the pressed octopus, Berkshire pork belly, and kaffir & chili crusted ostrich are exotic changes from the traditional steak and barbecue.

Neighborhood
The Fairmont holds a prime position between both the Financial and Arts Districts, giving visitors plenty to explore. Adorned with restaurants, bars and family-friendly attractions, this neighborhood caters to business and leisure guests in equal measure. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of the Dallas World Aquarium, a true family favorite with over 5,000 animals.

Hints and tips
Drop by the YMCA health club and spa right across the street from the Fairmont - that extra workout will make you feel less guilty about indulging in Texas-sized treats.

Fairmont suite

Restaurant staff A+ Housekeeping A+ View. A Location A; walking distance to Art District, museums, trolley, businesses, and churches Good water pressure and hot water Very quiet room; no noise or problems even with high school teams in the hotel Beds too soft Food and Internet are pricey Close outside restaurants close 2pm and open again after 5-6pm Great trip. Would go back again. We went for art, opera, and church.

Wedding night

I have always wanted to stay at the Fairmont! We spent our wedding night there on 3-8-2013. Everything was nice, clean, and updated! My problem was that they put us in a room next to the elevators. The stairs were located behind the elevator shaft. ALL NIGHT LONG we heard the elevators vibrating noise through the stairwell! We did not get any sleep! We told the front dest, and they gave us 2 complimentary breakfast buffets.

needs minor work

It was a good four-star hotel. three negatives: The ventilation in the bathroom did not work The heating system blew just cold air instead of hot air Or maybe I could not figure out how it worked but I don't think that's the case only Valet parking available

NICE BUSINESS STAY

Very nice & comfy but very small. The maid did not put away iron and board even after I left a note asking them to and thanking in advance, and leaving a $5 tip. They took the tip though. Otherwise great Hotel, great location, bar staff is very good and quick. Very handy having Starbucks on site and an indoor walk to a wonderful steakhouse!

Good Location, but really nothing special.

It's a huge place, plent of ballrooms and meeting space. The location is really good. Close to everything downtown. Also, there is plent of close-by parking, if you don't want to pay the $25. a night valet fee. But, if you're looking for a four-star (high quality) room (City View), well, it's just average. It's not bad, not in the least, but it's not spectaular. The four star rating may have you thinking otherwise. I'm not sure if this was New Years specific, but if you want to bring in a bottle of wine, you may want to call ahead. They were taking peoples bottles going in. I don't know if this is a policy, and I don't neccesarily disagree with it, but I won't stay there if I plan on bringing a drink. I was traveling for fun. This place was bleh.

Dallas Museum of Art and the Dallas World Aquarium are within a couple blocks. Check them out. Awesome. Great food at the DMA Cafe! Inexpensive too.

Fairmont Dallas was perfect for us!!

We had a great trip to Dallas for the cowboys vs steelers game and the fairmont Dallas was perfect for us! We were able to walk to go out to eat and took a cab for the game and stadium tour. The hotel had a cab in. Less than a minute every time we needed one! It was absolutely wonderful!

Hotel was very good. Location in business district so if you want shopping you need to take a cab to get most places including dinner at night. The meal at the hotel was good Had a suite and they small extra cost was well worth it.

Negative surprise

Surprised by the 'rules' at the Club Does not compare positively to Hyatt and/or Hilton. At that level, drinks should not be charged..."cheap" Unfriendly car parking attendants - @ $25/night !!
