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. There's also The Klyde Warren Park and Perot Museum of Nature & Science - both a short stroll from the Dallas Arts District.
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.

Nice view

The location and view were terrific but the hotel wasnt as good as i expected. The ac in our room didnt work so we were hot, the next day maintenance came and said he fixed it but by the time we got back to our room it was late and hot, we were too tired to switch rooms so we slept on the floor in front of an air vent.

Service plus Smile plus Convenience

Service with a smile from the valet, to the front desk, to the consier. We were able to walk to the acquariaum, ate at the Dakota (connected via underground tunnel), and visit the broakway show at the Winspear Opera house of Jersey Boys. Ken of the consier got us the best seats in the orchestra at a great price the day we arrived. He hand delivered them to us as we ate our anniversary dinner at the Dakota. service, service, servicea!!! We took the trolley next day to West Village. Ate at Breadwinners along the way. A great hotel with easy access to tons of stuff in Dallas. Will probably stay there again if something brings us to Dallas!

Great stay at the last minute

Great location close to great restaurants and great stuff. Ate at Stephan Pyles right around the corner and it was incredible. Best of all: the bed and the shower. Both perfect. Will stay again for sure.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Avoid the hotel's bottled water and mini bar. There is a 7-11 about a block away that was selling Fiji water bottles 2 for $3. The hotel had the same exact bottles in the room for $7.50 each.

Wedding Accomodations

Everything went well after we were given our room early but they mistook it for being ready. It was cleaned promptly and everything thereafter was great. Also, less than a block away is a 7-Eleven where you can pick up some snacks and beverages and not have to pay the over-inflated hotel prices.
