Ok, so maybe our expectations were too high. But this wasn't quite as chic or posh as we anticipated. The lobby, although it was small and narrow did contain some great artwork. However, I didn't quite get the point of the giant cogged wheel (I am sure that there is some story) or the long (very long) wooden reading table... More

I booked our wedding night hotel a few weeks in advance and I must say our amazing stay started out with the friendly voice on the other end of the phone who took our reservation. He also offered us a local discount as we currently live in the DFW area. I then was transferred to the concierge who helped me... More

My wife and I stayed in the terrace suite for a couple nights before we left for our honeymoon. The room was better than advertised and we were not disappointed. The people were nice. We used their Audi car service which I recommend. The only reason reason they did not get 5 out 5 was because their coffee shop and... More

First time at the joule and I can say we will be back. Everyone we came into contact with made u feel like a welcome guest. Both the hotel and room was clean and inviting. Pool is small but unique. Room finishings were tasteful-comfortable and modern. Enjoyed it.

We initially booked a loft but the a/c unit wasn't working so we got upgraded to a penthouse suite across the way. The Loft: Even though the a/c went out the room/loft was amazing. It was 2 story like a small townhome. Very modern. The bed was upstairs with it's own bathroom. Had a glass railing? overlooking the living room.... More

We booked our 1 night stay through American Express Platnium Services. We had been to the hotel for drinks and dinner but never stayed before. The rooms are very nice with high tech lighting etc. Although my husband is pretty good at it we could not get the TV on. We also had a problem getting breakfast delivered to our... More

I came to Dallas to visit my daughter and for an event. We wanted a relaxing weekend and to stay somewhere we haven't yet. As soon as we pulled up to the Joule at the valet stand we were swept off our feet. The Valet opened our doors, Tim our bellman took our bags and showed us to the front... More

I stayed here to break up a long business trip, having heard only good things. The staff make this place - they go above and beyond to make your stay a dream. I was upgraded and sent a complimentary snack which was a great start to the stay. I love that the elevator is key card only for added security... 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
