The Joule Hotel, named for the international unit of energy, is the stunning product of a revitalized 1920's neo-gothic landmark Dallas building, three restored buildings of 1930's vintage, and several new structures. A visual masterpiece from award-winning designer Adam D. Tihany, the hotel creates a tasteful union of old world quality and contemporary design, while densely populated throughout by museum quality artwork from names including Tony Cragg, Tony Tasset, Andy Warhol and Richard Phillips. In addition to new guest rooms, spectacular multi-story penthouses and bespoke lobby experience, the property includes an impressive glass-fronted rooftop cantilevered pool, subterranean spa, rooftop terrace with glass pavilion, beautiful event spaces, first-class dining, vibrant cocktail destinations and one-of-a-kind shopping experiences. The Joule is an artfully delivered experience set in the heart of downtown and within walking distance of the Dallas Arts District.

We have still not come down from the clouds after the celebration we just experienced at The Joule! Had a surprise birthday party for my boyfriend's 40th birthday and stayed in one of the penthouses. The Joule provided catering and bar service during the party and participated in executing the surprise. From Sarah, the awesome event coordinator, reservations team, valet, the bellmen, room service, spa service, and to the pool service, both of us as well as our guests received top notch service! Everyone was so professional and attentive! Definitely exceeded our expectations! All of the attendees have not stopped raving about the experience yet! I couldn't have imagined such a monumental event being executed any better! Thankful for this memory that we will have to cherish for a lifetime and couldn't have done it without your help. Words cannot express my sincere gratitude!

This was our first time at the Joule hotel and from making reservations until our checkout, it was nothing short of amazing! Danny was the one who took care of us from the beginning and he is the reason it was so incredible. He took us on a private tour, took pictures of us in front of the Eye, upgraded our hotel room, left champagne and a treat in our room and went ABOVE and BEYOND for us to make our stay so memorable. We will one thousand percent be returning. Anyone who goes and meets Danny is in for a treat! Cannot say enough about to quality of every aspect of the hotel, but the customer service is unmatched!

It's amazing to see Danny was able to be a one stop shop from start to end. He genuinely cares about our guests experiences and loves to tailor every experience according to your preferences. There are many hotels with four walls and beds in the area for you to select from with that said, we try our best to truly think of outside of the box when we are preparing for our guests upcoming experiences! We are pleased to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your stay! Thank you for sharing your wonderful feedback with the world! We can't wait to welcome you back for round 2! Cheers, Richard Montenegro Guest Services Manager

My wife and I are completing another stay at the Joule this morning, and once again we are very glad that we chose the Joule. We don't mean that as a slight against other hotels in Dallas. There are many good hotels in Dallas, and we have stayed at most of them. There is a wide chasm between good and great though, and the Joule sits comfortably in greatness. Everything is literally great, the building is architecturally outstanding. The interior design is very pleasing to the eye. The rooms are very well designed. The furnishings are beautiful and we'll made. The art collection is breathtaking. The location is right in the heart of downtown with multiple dining and entertainment options. It is the service though that really sets the Joule apart from the rest of the pack. Want to stay at a hotel where the staff actually is eager to serve you, to satisfy your requests? Choose the Joule. They will remember your name when you return. They will remember your preferences. They will accommodate your requests, and they will love doing it. It must be great hiring practices and great training. From the guest services manager (Richard) to the bellman and valets, the staff all seem to be called to hospitality. It kind of reminds us of the Continental Hotel in John Wick, only much more cheery. Tip: The Midnight Rambler bar in the basement has reopened after Covid. It has a cool, sultry speakeasy vibe and the drinks are great. Also the swimming pool is cantilevered out over the street on the 9th floor. Be sure to check it out.
