Recent guest reviews

Comfy bed, lots of space in our room. The staff was a little slow with checking in because they were right in the middle of typing in the computer what rooms were available at the time. They were friendly and helped us navigate where we can go within walking distance for food in the evening. YO Steakhouse was amazing and only a 3 min walk from the hotel. Only complaint was that the previous person staying in our room set the alarm clock and the maid service didn't catch that so it woke us up extremely early.

As I enjoy the wonderful breakfast this morning need to list kudos to this establishment. Within walking distance of historical district, many restaurants, light rail. Newly updated older building with beautiful decorating. Small room, but very nice view from 9th floor. Paige great help in suggesting restaurants, giving directions. All very clean and new. Will most definitely choose this location next time in Dallas.

Perfectly located downtown in walking distance of most downtown attractions. Beautiful bed, clean comfortable rooms and wonderful southern hospitality; Bernize was especially helpful to me. Nice breakfast and a late checkout made my overnight in Dallas perfect. Would definitely recommend.

Good location near Dealey plaza. Walking distance to 6th Floor Musieum and restaurants. Room was clean and modern. Lobby staff very friendly. Good coffee machine in lobby. Breakfast was comfortable. Valet parking no problem.

Be sure to enter on Jackson Street, even though it says S Houston St. There is no entrance there and somehow they can't change the address. It's a new building and signage is not at eye-level, but near the top in Orange Letters with an orange fire escape. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very compact and a bit small; but with lots of outlets for charging phones, etc. A handy shelf in the room, as well as other cubicles to store your stuff. The bed, pillows and duvet were good quality and comfortable. Great view of the city; though there is some construction next door. It may take away the view in another year. Time will tell. Hot breakfast available. Hot drinks; coffee machine available 24/7. Valet parking is 25; but wonder if you could park yourself and get the $10 a day rate. Didn't inquire. We stayed 3 nights as it was convenient to walk to most sights in the area.

Very accommodating and clean hotel. Rooms are small but that is due to the date of the actual building but the renovations are fabulous. Personnel could not have been nicer. It is within walking distance of several distinctive Dallas highlights which is a big plus. However, there are about 6 parking meters (active from 7:00am until 6:00 pm) in the front of the hotel which the hotel staff told us about, which was very nice of them. The meters are city patrolled and are watched like a hawk by the meter enforcement. After setting the alarm for 6:45 am, putting plenty of quarters in them, going back and adding more time, leaving at 11:00 am, we still got a $35.00 parking ticket...which was made worse because the meter enforcement person knocked on our car window (and advised that although she had seen us come down and put time on the meter, she said that the meter was expired when she saw us doing it. Which , In Turn, probably means she had been watching those spots for at least 1.5 hours. They are easy tickets so just be careful.

Around 2002 I stayed at the Hotel Lawrence and it was a wonderful boutique hotel experience. This hotel was built in 1925 and has a rich history. I was pleasantly surprised when I booked this La Quinta location and upon arrival recognized the building as the former Hotel Lawrence. I didn't find the valet parking charge out of line with other large city charges. The staff were helpful and friendly. Next time I have business in downtown Dallas I will stay again.

The pros: convenient location, clean, breakfast included (we didn't partake b/c we overslept), coffee to-go, etc. Cons: Extra $ for parking your car safely (and not easily being able to run to your car if you left something in it!), small rooms... Pets were allowed, which I don't have a problem with, but when they are barking at 6am NON-STOP, it IS a problem.

First: Staff was friendly. Location was good. Thats all the positives I can mention. Now the bad, and it gets rather bad, even unsafe: Valet parking is $25 a day. Staff says there is public parking if you can find it but you have to walk and price is about the same. No its not. Less than 100 meters away there is public parking for $10 a day. The worse thing about valet parking was the way my vehicle was driven when it was brought to me. My vehicle has a powerful engine and the driver was gunning the engine coming around the corner. The atmosphere of the hotel is very depressing, and even creepy, with dark blue/purple paint and carpet with black and white photos hanging on very narrow halls with extremely low ceilings. It reminded me of a spook house or horror film. The rooms were the smallest I have ever stayed in. The biggest issues I have are the doors. The door to the restrooms are the hanging type that roll. but they may as well not even be there. There are huge gaps between the door, the frame, and the wall so that one guest can lay on the bed and watch the other guest as they sit on the toilet, even with the door closed. However my greatest concern is the door to the room. I noticed I could hear, seemingly, everything that was going on in the hotel. What I discovered is there are gaps, nearly 3 inches, between the floor and the bottom of the door. I shouldnt say discovered because it was as plain as day. Anyone can peer, without any difficulty, underneath your door and see exactly what is going on in your room. This alarmed me and I thought "Surely they wouldnt make this kind of flaw in design". So I stepped outside my room, quickly lowered my phone and snapped a picture under the door. I put no effort into taking the picture and was done in less than a second. To my shock, there was my son sitting on the bed completely oblivious to what I had just done. No way I will ever stay at this hotel again

We just recently relocated to Dallas, and every time our family comes to visit we book them a room here. It's everything you could want & more really! Right on the edge of downtown Dallas across from the train station, bus stops, & street car you can get anywhere you want fast! The building is newly remodeled, modern, and clean. We will definitely continue using this hotel well into the future!
