Reviewed April 28, 2014

Stayed at the Fairmont for 5 nights. Situated in downtown Dallas the area is quiet. However fantastic restaurants and most sights in easy walking distance. The hotel itself was very good. Staff very friendly and helpful ,Paid the extra money to get the Gold package and very worthwhile.
Extensive breakfast - hot and cold ,complimentary drinks and rapid wifi. Also pre dinner nibbles delicious. Room was comfortable with good storage. We had great views looking north. Would certainly stay here again. Only drawback is no real shopping nearby but good public transport.

Room Tip: Get the gold package

Hello and thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your five-night stay. We are very pleased to hear that you had a positive experience with our exclusive Fairmont Gold level. I am glad that you enjoyed our city-center location in the downtown Dallas Arts District. Our hotel colleagues truly strive to provide exceptional, warm service for our guests. I'm happy that you liked the complimentary breakfast and afternoon snacks offered in the Gold Lounge. If shopping is of interest, for your next visit I might recommend taking the complimentary McKinney Avenue trolley, which stops one block from the hotel and offers transportation throughout Uptown and the West Village area, which offers great boutiques. Thank you again for taking the time to share your comments. We hope to see you again at The Fairmont Dallas very soon!

We had a wonderful stay at the Fairmont in Dallas. We were on the Gold Level and found it to be
very enjoyable. We had access to a wide variety of, not only snacks all day, but food & drinks for breakfast, & before dinner hors d'oeuvres. There was no extra charge for these, (only alcoholic beverages). This was especially nice since we had our four teenage grandsons with us who were
always hungry!
The staff was very accommodating and the concierge, Philip, helped us plan an itinerary that was
geared to activities that the boys loved........sporting events, museums, barbecue & Mexican restau-
rants, a thrill amusement park, etc. Philip was so friendly and could not have been nicer. He went
above & beyond what we would expect from a concierge.
The rooms were large and beds, comfortable. Amenities were very nice. Baths were on the small
side, but walk-in shower was great.
We will stay there, again.

Room Tip: I would recommend the Gold Level.

I always enjoy Fairmont Hotels, and was very pleased with my stay in Dallas. Great upscale lodging in well located downtown. Didn't dine in the restaurant (though it looked really good) but enjoyed the bar for light fare and nicely done cocktails. Impressive staff, fine experience overall.

The rudely Doorman interrupted me during checkin to inform me that a bellman was coming to take care of my bags and stood there waiting for a tip like a puppy under a dinner table waiting on crumbs to fall.

Hello and thank you for sharing your comments on Trip Advisor. We are disappointed to hear that you felt that our doorman was rude. I can assure you that our bellmen and guest services team provide exceptional service and do not expect tips. Likely what you experienced was simply a hotel colleague ensuring that your arrival experience was positive. Thank you again and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.

Great proximity to lots of attractions in downtown Dallas, walking distance to most. Visited the 6th floor museum and the Dallas Museum of Art.

Restaurants in hotel were good, service in bar was slow, I felt like they could have doubled their sales to patrons...I suppose they saved me money.

Rooms were in great shape, terrace was a nice oasis to get away.

I stayed at the FD on two occasions over three weeks in March 2014 and I wanted to singularly praise Tony Bennett, their outstanding doorman. Warm, helpful, tireless, and courteous to a fault. The rest of the staff were also great doing stays but he stood out as a terrific frontline ambassador to the hotel.
