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.

The bed was so dang comfy!

I visited for only 2 days for an event in town at the convention center. The bell staff was superb and on the spot! The bartender [...] at the lobby bar went totally out of her way to make me feel welcome as I was travelling by myself. Love, love love the bed! I did eat in the lobby bar 2 times and the only thing I would say is...please fix the creme brule...it didn't have a custard texture...it was weird actually :( I give the food 2 out of 4 stars. Might not hurt to have 1 extra restaurant choice in the hotel..like maybe an alternate style if you don't want all the fanciness.

Warm & elegant.

As a foreigner who does not drive I have found very convenient the proximity of the hotel from the Dart system - although I have used taxicabs a lot. I stayed at the hotel from October, 27 till November 4, 2010, with the only purpose of enjoying a little bit Dallas. I mostly did sightseeing and shoppings, but I also visited museums and the superb Dallas Cowboys new stadium (a must).

Good deal

Great downtown location. Easy access to freeways and restaurants in uptown. Only problem was the clerk gave me keys to occupied room. Also wasn't told I was getting a room for handicapped when checking in. Other than that, the valet staff was prompt and courteous and the room was nice. I would stay again.

Flew in for a mavs game. Walking distance to American Airlines Arena and JFK site. Clean rooms. Vallet parking was pretty steep, you really don't need a car if you are just staying down town.

Lovely hotel

It's right in the city centre which is great, but there's not a lot happening in the city centre of Dallas so I may consider staying somewhere closer to the Bishop Arets District next time. The hotel was lovely though. Very comfortable. Friendly staff. I had a very enjoyable stay there.
