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.

Great location

We came to the Dallas area to take in a Rangers game and wanted to experience the downtown area as well. The Fairmont provided everything we wanted--great location, beautiful accommodations, and genuinely friendly staff. The drive from the ballpark to the hotel was less than a half hour. Downtown Dallas has great character and the Fairmont puts you in the middle of the action. We were able to easily walk to the Arts District to enjoy the unique and memorable architecture, the West End to take in a few restaurants, and the Grassy Knoll. We felt safe walking to each district during both day and evening hours.

Good but not Great

Selected this based on the stars rating, and it was a nice hotel but dated. Staff was good, valet service was excellent. Selected the King Suite which was nice, but the furniture was old and uncomfortable, and the shower, and bathroom area were terrible compared to hotels that are rated in this class.

Reasonable rates, very nice, clean room, and friendly staff

My stay at this hotel was very pleasant and comfortable. The first room that they gave me smelled like cigaret smoke even if it was supposedly a non-smoking room. I was given another room immediately after complaining about it.
