Spent a night at The Joule and it's a very pleasant hotel to visit. If you don't need to be in Downtown, however, it wouldn't be my first choice. It's a bit on the dark side, rooms are small [very] but very chic. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly and I only have good things to say about them. I got confused by the light switches and that kind of stuff, but it was a nice experience. Bed was very cool. Round and interesting lighting. I needed it de-feathered and it took room service no more than 5 minutes to show up and do the job right. Not every hotel acts so quickly and many don't know how to do it.
Only downside to this hotel is lack of parking. You must use valet which isn't cheap.
I'd give it 5 stars but I feel that 5 needs to be a stupendous experience. This was not. It was a great experience but on the pricey side.
- 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
