It was close to the 6th floor museum Noises, lots of people coming in and out because there was a big party in the club located inside. Relaxing was impossible.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool area was rundown. furniture broken and old. did not like that after a certain hour, the hotel bar turns into a nightclub with a $10 entrance. we just wanted to go have a drink at the hotel bar and it went from a nice hotel bar earlier in the day to a cheeky vegas nightclub packed with 20 somethings. We just wanted to go from our room to have a cocktail, not the gross club!
Good stay overall! One complaint was told via email and booking that the room included breakfast even the server with breakfast told me it was included but somehow I was charged anyway. Ill just make sure to be mindful the next time.
Shower head was much to short for a tall person. I kept hitting my head on the spout which was both painful and disgusting.
The location is the reason I booked this hotel. Room smelled like wet mildewed gym socks. The bed was beyond uncomfortable. The toilet paper even felt like it was from the solitary confinement section of Riker's Island! We were forced to have our room keys re-magnetized 7 times in two days. I am very conscious not to let my cell phone come in contact with the keys etc, but it was a habitual problem. I have never experienced that in all the many places I have stayed in the past. The front desk staff was disinterested and going through the motions every time they were approached. Warm hospitality is not their strong suit. I really discourage this hotel when staying downtown. Go somewhere else.
1. Shower head soaked the bathroom floor and carpet. I requested a repair but it did not happen. 2. Food was cold. I ordered soap but got chili. I was sink and too weak to complain. 3. Hotel has some many random people in and out. Not a professional environment.
The front desk and concierge was very polite and friendly. The entrance to the hotel is beautiful! The bed was very comfortable and the balcony was nice. The room was in need of a remodel. Paint and color on the walls were out of date. There were several spots that have been patched over. The bar staff wasn't very knowledgable in making drinks or friendly. She seemed preoccupied with one customer the hour I was there.
The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room, though somewhat older, was clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable. Water pressure on our floor (15) was good, but a friend staying on another floor (18) said that it was barely a trickle. Although we didn't use the pool, its location on the ninth floor was nice. Downtown Dallas, like downtown of other large, Texas cities (e.g., Houston) is just not a great location. We arrived on a Sunday, and very little was open. We walked several blocks to find dining options other than Subway, McDonald's or 7-Eleven. The hotel is not far from a Greyhound station and several urban parks, so there were often groups of people hanging around near the hotel that made the place seem a bit unsafe. The hotel is on the older side, and could stand to be upgraded a bit.
We were supposed to have a room with two queen-size beds and instead we had two full-size. was very hard for four people to sleep in two full-sized beds.
For the location and a one night stay, it's all we needed. It needs updating. Old mattress and furniture. Typical wear and tear, but this hotel needs new everything.
Location is great, Dallas World Aquarium is within walking distance so you do save on parking. The hotel stay was ok, the room had a microwave and a fridge which I wasn't expecting so that was nice. You basically get what you pay for. The hotel is downtown and I checked other downtown hotel rates and they were quite expensive so settled on this. It's not a luxury hotel per say so plan to spend some time exploring the downtown because that way you get a good value out of your hotel stay.
The location was nice in that is was close to many other places downtown within walking distance. Although the immediate area didn't give us a fully safe feeling. The price we paid for the hotel was fair. The smell of the hallway was bad. It seems like they never cleaned or replaced the carpet ever. The location also looked a little shady as we were walking to the hotel.
The room was very warm and got even warmer in the middle of the night. I complained to the front desk and they said they would send a technician, but the temp never changed by much.
We felt welcomed, respected and valued as if we were family. The hotel is all about making you feel important. It is immaculate, the service was perfect in every respect. The staff made us feel comfortable as though we were both important and yet like we were old friends. Absolutely nothing.
The facilities have been updated but you can still tell it's a very old hotel. The a/c in our room wasn't great. Would stay there again!
Location was good. The hotel had a lot of amenities. The bar staff was not very good. Not friendly at all. Enjoyed the stay but it was not as nice as other Fairmonts where I've stayed.
Was willing to remove a faulty charge No hot water, TV didn't work, coffee machine in room did not work either, and a very loud AC
Great price ,location & service
Courtesy car will take you anywhere in 1 mile radius... BIG plus for us. Staff are super friendly!
The staff were super. Very helpful and everyone was smiling! I stay at the Fairmont when I am visiting customers for business. Our family trip took us through Dallas and the only hotel I thought of was the Fairmont. My family will definitely visit the Fairmont in the future again. All good! Bartender made great drinks, pool was awesome for my daughter and wife and location was superb for walking to dinner.
The AC couldn't keep up to keep me comfortable.
Great service at the bar. Friendly bar staff. Great desk staff in the lobby.
Bathroom: it was big, clean, had amazing lighting and neat, futuristic features.The shower could fit 3 people with a huge bench. The shower head was by far the nest thing about the whole stay! It was a massive, square, waterfall that covered every inch of me at one time. This is where the positives begin and end however. My husband took me to the Westin Downtown Dallas for our anniversary. We are not wealthy and my expectations may be too high for today's lack of standards...I don't know. Parking: Self is $26, valet is $30 (only options) Bed: Like sleeping on the floor with only a thin down blanket to cushion you. Room Service: Not only did it take forever to get, but we called 3 different times before we made a choice that they actually had!! They had "run out" of the first 2 choices, and the third choice we were informed, although it was already on the menu, it was new and wouldn't be actually available for another 2 WEEKS!!! A 5 stat hotel shouldn't run out of everything or misrepresent a darn thing in my opinion! Staff: Cleaning lady flat out walked in on us twice! So we had to leave the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door the entire time with the extra lock on. However, the front desk had to call so we could open the door for the towel guy because he couldn't knock with the sign there (maybe the maid could learn from him). TV: Only a handful of channels and the programs/actual episodes, that are the same everyday! I'm talking not just the same program but the exact same episodes everyday we were there. Noise: Although on the second to highest floor, 31 floors up, we heard sirens, traffic, and construction (the entire time)! I understand we were in downtown Dallas, but seriously, I even had to listen to the delivery truck trying to back up and park for almost 5 minutes a couple times a day. We heard every door that opened and closed, and although we were as far away from the elevators as one could get, we heard it EVERY time it moved! Checking out: We requested a luggage cart/dolly THREE times over a total of 35 minutes and still NEVER saw hair of it nor any attendants! We waited until the exact minute of check out time and then hauled it all down by ourselves with no apology or anything. Misc: No vending machines, and the gift shop is an over priced joke even in gift shop standards. However there is a nicely stalked, friendly staffed Seven Eleven around the corner within comfortable walking distance. All of that said.....would I own the bathroom, yes! Would I ever stay there again, NO.....but that's just me and my opinion.
The rooms very large and the gym was awesome. They even provided workout clothes and shoes, which I forgot to bring. The staff was very professional, except for the maid service. The maid service was lazy. The staff only cleaned the room once in three nights in spite of our repeated efforts to have it cleaned daily.
The hotel was very clean. The staff was very welcoming. The breakfast is very good. The facilities were fun (basketball room, swimming pool ...).
excellent hotel! Kayak hooked us up with a spacious suite complete with a kitchen and small living room! If i'd come back to Dallas, for the price... this is where I want to stay.
It's location in the West End where all the events of the Texas/OU Weekend took place.
The hotel was clean. The hotel attempted to cancel my reservation due to their overbooking problems. They didn't want to recognize my reservation. After getting rather irate with them, they tried to send me to a sister property. I called and that property was overbooked as well. The desk manager finally provided me my room. I will never stay at this location again. I am a a Marriott Gold member and they treated me like crap.
The hotel had clean rooms, but the beds were not the most comfortable. It is located in a great part of Dallas, central to a lot of entertainment and easily accessible to the highway.
