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.

If you need to stay downtown this is the place

Larger rooms, great bar and food. YMCA across the street is a great workout center with everything from pool to basketball courts.

Nice Downtown Location

This hotel, as it should be based on the name, is a very nice hotel and is located right downtown. It is not cheap and they do charge a hefty charge for parking and Internet access. Don't even get me started about the prices in the lobby restaurant! But, if you have business meetings in downtown Dallas, it is a great spot to stay. My only criticism is that the downtown area does not seem to have a lot of restaurants in walking distance, so you are stuck taking a cab or dining in the expensive lobby restaurant.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Unless you are going to drive outside of the downtown area, take a cab from the airport and use cabs in town. Between rental fees, parking and valet tips, you will save big!

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 !!

Business Conference

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.

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!

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!
