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.

Nice location

The locations was great: in Downtown but really close to Uptown and not as expensive as the hotels there. When you walk in, it'll tunr out a very nice hotel, but then the rooms are not as spacious as you could think. Quite tight. And the most important thing is that we had a weird issue with the bathroom: water comming up from the wastepipe to the washbasin!!!

Great Stay

Very nice hotel, the pool on the rooftop is really nice. Room were very clean and the pillows were awesome. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I would stay here again. Location of the hotel was ideal. Unfortunate you have to valet your car and get charged $25 for it with no other option but the car was brought up within 10 mins every time I requested it.

Great location

This is my second stay here and I enjoyed it as much as my first. The only complaint this time was the waiter at breakfast. When one orders the buffet then the waiter doesn't have to do much. We did not order the buffet and I suppose that was too much work for him because we had to go look for him to order. Towards the end of our meal the waiter actually took my sons plate away while he was still eating. Never asked if he was finished! We did not eat at that restaurant again of course.

Great hotel in the Arts District downtown

This is a perfect hotel for a downtown Dallas business or pleasure trip. Many restaurants are within walking distance, but a fair number are more lunch type places. It is two blocks from the art and sculpture museums. I would definitely stay here again.

Impeccable service, amazing rooms, perfect location

Everything was great from the moment we checked in. Our room was originally for a King, however when I asked if there were 2 doubles available, they upgraded us to a double suite at no charge. Our room was spotloss and had a great view of downtown. The hotel staff was extremely courtious and knowledgeable. The bar area in the lobby was also very nice and the service was top notch. I will definitely be staying here again and will recommend it to friends/family.
