I came here for business and i would easily come back with the family. This hotel isn't one size fits all, which is why i love it. The Pros: -Awesome service all around. I forgot my toothpaste and they had extras on standby for me. -Food is fantastic!!!! Their restaurant (CBD) is phenomenal, but so is their banquet food. We... More

Check-in was flawless (unlike our Omni Dallas experience). Hotel room decor was stunning. Endless amenities in-room. Can't say enough about the service at the pool and the food (hummus, chips & guac, burger) was jaw dropping. I'd always heard great things about the Joule and it definitely lived up to the hype.

The Service is the real winner. Every single employee has a 'how can I make your stay amazing' attitude. The feel of the hotel is Upscale Artsy and Tech Savvy. The room was amazing - very clean and comfortable. The television even had an option to record shows while you are out to watch later (just like home). One small... More

Had to come to Dallas for work. Joule was a great ultra hip location. The only problem I had was that I was splitting a room with a co worker and they only had single beds. The roll away bed couldn't fit in our room due to fire code so we just tossed a coin and one got the bed... More

I was over for business which involved shipping a lot of items from London and throughout the process staff were always incredibly helpful and accommodating. I went for a superior twin and was pleasantly surprised with the room size, bed and overall layout. Exactly what I needed for a long business trip and overall it an amazing experience.

I checked into my room on a Friday night I put my luggage down then opened the curtain to see the view. To my surprise there was a used CONDOM on the floor near the window. I stepped on it and I was absolutely grossed out. I called the concierge and let her know what happened she decided to laugh... More

The ambiance of this hotel is everything. The lobby is gorgeous and the rooms are great. Lastly the pool is absolutely gorgeous. I only stayed for a short weekend to celebrate my birthday but it was well worth it!! I plan to visit this hotel many more times in the future.

My wife is 28 and I’m 29. This was our first trip to The Joule. My wife and I only tend to stay in the best of the best when traveling so take that for what it’s worth. We had high expectations given the reviews and awards this place as received lately. Overall, for the money, it was a pleasant... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights after a disappointing stay at the Omni in town. The Joule is nearly the ideal hotel. It is a smaller boutique property filled with character and filled with great staff. The room was a wonderful mix of modern technology, awesome architecture, and elegancy. Who isn't impressed by motorized curtains and blinds?!?... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Joule, named for the international unit of energy, occupies a revitalized 1920's neo-gothic, landmark Dallas building. The hotel is well into a two-year $78 million renovation and expansion expected to be complete by early 2013, including a subterranean spa by ESPA, new suites and multi-story penthouses, the TASCHEN Library and retail by TRAFFIC Los Angeles and TENOVERSIX. A visual masterpiece from award-winning designer Adam D. Tihany, the hotel creates a tasteful union of Old World quality and contemporary design with original marble flooring, richly colored fabrics, custom millwork, chrome, glass and populated throughout by original artwork from names including Andy Warhol, Tony Cragg, Adam Fuss and Richard Phillips. In addition to uniquely designed guestrooms and a spectacular penthouse, the property currently includes a cantilevered glass rooftop pool and bespoke lobby environment. Set in the heart of a burgeoning downtown, adjacent to the flagship Neiman Marcus and within walking distance of the internationally acclaimed Dallas Arts District, the hotel is ideally located. The Joule - an artfully delivered experience in an iconic setting infused with energy, style and passion. ... more   less
