An old world hotel with friendly staff, great food and a central location. The hotel is statement of luxury from a quiet large room with a big bed and fluffy pillows to a large bathroom. I really enjoyed this stay at this hotel and highly recommend it to you! Treat yourself; it's worth it.

I was passing through Dallas and instead of staying in the suburbs, I decided to treat myself and splurge. The price was expensive, but the extra luxury was worth it. The Fairmont has always been a classy hotel. I was not disappointed with this choice. Great Hotel!!! For some reason it only has a four star rating, but trust me... More

My wife and I occupied a suite adjacent to the Gold Lounge. We have experienced elite lounges in competing hotels, but Fairmont was a head above in terms of friendliness, amenities and quality of food and beverages provided. Overall an exceptionally pleasant stay.

I stayed at the Fairmont in Dallas for 4 nights in August 2014 for business. I stayed on the 17th floor, and there was not much of a view, but the room was spotless and the bed was super comfy! The front desk staff was helpful and friendly. I recommend joining their "President's Club" (it's free, and you can sign... More

Had a one night stay here for a business meeting. The room was well appointed and very comfortable. The best part of this hotel was the food service. Most meeting/convention food selections are less than stellar. At the Fairmont, the food was superb. Despite being served as a buffet, the selections were fresh and flavorful. I found the staff friendly... More

Our 23rd Floor Room was just delightfully elegant, small but well appointed decorated as a grande dame should be. To add to the excitement there were several hundred beautiful women from Poland and Lithuania staying there for a Mary Kay Cosmetics conference. What fun meeting them! Everyone at the hotel was welcoming and the only sour note is that the... More

Weekend getaway. Location convenient to local attractions & restaurants. Suite was more room than we needed but very comfortable. Mattress sagged a little. Ate breakfast both mornings at Pyramid Grill. Food & service was very good.

The Fairmont Dallas is a fabulous hotel to stay in while in the Dallas area. The staff are extremely friendly, room was very comfortable, and the location is unbeatable. I will probably ask to not have a pool view during the summer because the noise from movie nights (which we enjoyed) was a tad bit distracting when trying to go... More

After completing a business trip in East Texas i stayed over at the Dallas Fairmont before a next day flight. I was upgraded to a suite and a lovely fruit and cheese tray were laid out as i settled in. The sweltering Dallas heat made this hotel a perfect cool retreat. The pool is lovely and quiet on a Saturday... More
