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.

very good, not great

room a joke...needed to upgrade to concierge level for decent room and b'fast and service. so upgraded rooms nice, concierge room was good, but it's not top tier...the workout room is weak (no spa or sauna) no attendant even.....but for the extra few $$ go big time to the big name classy hotel. it wasn't a dump, better than the standard chain.

You will be blown away!

You don't need to even think twice about taking a Gold Room at this Hotel. The staff will treat you like royalty and they are all truely sincer in their commitment to making your stay far beyond any expectations you have. I had no intentions of returning to Dallas for pleasure, but I will now.

good value for luxurious setting

Location best if doing business rather than tourism. Staff is friendly and helpful. Lobby is very nice as was my room. Dining best with room service, the restaurant in the lobby is more of a bar. There is a Starbucks that opens early but closes by 3pm. Wifi in room extra charge and TV fair reception with few premium channels. Purchasing a movie expensive.

A great experience but only for the Internet access!

Staff was awesome, food was great, prices were on par with what I've seen in other luxury hotels. But the Internet access was so broken (both wired and wireless) that I could not work from the room. I'm in IT, so this is like taking money away from a banker and expecting them to return value to their clients.

Beautiful Stay

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Fairmont as part of a romantic week. The hotel was absolutely beautiful and the staff were all very polite and friendly. We didn't pay for the best room in the hotel but we still had a nicely appointed and spacious room with a nice view of Dallas. We will definitely be staying there again.

Nice Hotel

Good hotel with a nice bathroom. The foyer was beautiful and it has a starbucks in the building, which is great. The rooms weren't amazing but there wasn't anything wrong with them either. Internet is an extra $15.

I was impressed with the proximity of the hotel to so many things downtown. Museums, galleries, shopping and venues surround the hotel.
