This was like going back in time 15 years ago - such great customer service from valet, bellman and check in - everyone treated like you were the only one there. We felt pampered
Location was good. The hotel had a lot of amenities. The bar staff was not very good. Not friendly at all. Enjoyed the stay but it was not as nice as other Fairmonts where I've stayed.
Great price ,location & service
Great service at the bar. Friendly bar staff. Great desk staff in the lobby.
The room was very warm and got even warmer in the middle of the night. I complained to the front desk and they said they would send a technician, but the temp never changed by much.
The AC couldn't keep up to keep me comfortable.
Courtesy car will take you anywhere in 1 mile radius... BIG plus for us. Staff are super friendly!
The facilities have been updated but you can still tell it's a very old hotel. The a/c in our room wasn't great. Would stay there again!
The staff were super. Very helpful and everyone was smiling! I stay at the Fairmont when I am visiting customers for business. Our family trip took us through Dallas and the only hotel I thought of was the Fairmont. My family will definitely visit the Fairmont in the future again. All good! Bartender made great drinks, pool was awesome for my daughter and wife and location was superb for walking to dinner.
Was willing to remove a faulty charge No hot water, TV didn't work, coffee machine in room did not work either, and a very loud AC
We felt welcomed, respected and valued as if we were family. The hotel is all about making you feel important. It is immaculate, the service was perfect in every respect. The staff made us feel comfortable as though we were both important and yet like we were old friends. Absolutely nothing.
The location is the reason I booked this hotel. Room smelled like wet mildewed gym socks. The bed was beyond uncomfortable. The toilet paper even felt like it was from the solitary confinement section of Riker's Island! We were forced to have our room keys re-magnetized 7 times in two days. I am very conscious not to let my cell phone come in contact with the keys etc, but it was a habitual problem. I have never experienced that in all the many places I have stayed in the past. The front desk staff was disinterested and going through the motions every time they were approached. Warm hospitality is not their strong suit. I really discourage this hotel when staying downtown. Go somewhere else.
The location was nice in that is was close to many other places downtown within walking distance. Although the immediate area didn't give us a fully safe feeling. The price we paid for the hotel was fair. The smell of the hallway was bad. It seems like they never cleaned or replaced the carpet ever. The location also looked a little shady as we were walking to the hotel.
For the location and a one night stay, it's all we needed. It needs updating. Old mattress and furniture. Typical wear and tear, but this hotel needs new everything.
It was close to the 6th floor museum Noises, lots of people coming in and out because there was a big party in the club located inside. Relaxing was impossible.
Shower head was much to short for a tall person. I kept hitting my head on the spout which was both painful and disgusting.
Good stay overall! One complaint was told via email and booking that the room included breakfast even the server with breakfast told me it was included but somehow I was charged anyway. Ill just make sure to be mindful the next time.
We were supposed to have a room with two queen-size beds and instead we had two full-size. was very hard for four people to sleep in two full-sized beds.
The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room, though somewhat older, was clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable. Water pressure on our floor (15) was good, but a friend staying on another floor (18) said that it was barely a trickle. Although we didn't use the pool, its location on the ninth floor was nice. Downtown Dallas, like downtown of other large, Texas cities (e.g., Houston) is just not a great location. We arrived on a Sunday, and very little was open. We walked several blocks to find dining options other than Subway, McDonald's or 7-Eleven. The hotel is not far from a Greyhound station and several urban parks, so there were often groups of people hanging around near the hotel that made the place seem a bit unsafe. The hotel is on the older side, and could stand to be upgraded a bit.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool area was rundown. furniture broken and old. did not like that after a certain hour, the hotel bar turns into a nightclub with a $10 entrance. we just wanted to go have a drink at the hotel bar and it went from a nice hotel bar earlier in the day to a cheeky vegas nightclub packed with 20 somethings. We just wanted to go from our room to have a cocktail, not the gross club!
The front desk and concierge was very polite and friendly. The entrance to the hotel is beautiful! The bed was very comfortable and the balcony was nice. The room was in need of a remodel. Paint and color on the walls were out of date. There were several spots that have been patched over. The bar staff wasn't very knowledgable in making drinks or friendly. She seemed preoccupied with one customer the hour I was there.
1. Shower head soaked the bathroom floor and carpet. I requested a repair but it did not happen. 2. Food was cold. I ordered soap but got chili. I was sink and too weak to complain. 3. Hotel has some many random people in and out. Not a professional environment.
Location is great, Dallas World Aquarium is within walking distance so you do save on parking. The hotel stay was ok, the room had a microwave and a fridge which I wasn't expecting so that was nice. You basically get what you pay for. The hotel is downtown and I checked other downtown hotel rates and they were quite expensive so settled on this. It's not a luxury hotel per say so plan to spend some time exploring the downtown because that way you get a good value out of your hotel stay.
The beautiful historic lobby was a perfect first impression The room we stayed in was newly remodeled modern, comfortable, incredibly large with 2 king beds, beautiful, luxurious bathroom and great view of Dallas. We never used our car, everything was close enough to walk but , when we didn't walk, the hotel had a courtesy car with a very pleasant driver to take us to theme farmers market. The choice of restaurants in the hotel were very limited. The choices included a barbeque, cowboy theme, or the French Room, which was beautiful but not casual and comfortable. Very special occasion, dressy type atmosphere.
I prepaid for a room and adolphus sold it. I had to spend the night at a friends place and my card was still charged. Now I have to deal with the refund.
I have to brag on Rachel at the front desk! She was such a joy and so accommodating. She had to go through a few hurdles to find our reservations but kept us informed and happy. We were there for a girlfriends birthday and decided to schedule a ghost tour with Kevin. He made it so memorable! Overall the staff was so welcoming and professional. The room we were checked into went above our expectations. Comfy bed, clean and crisp linens, full sized pillows, spacious, equipped with a phone charging station, mini fridge, keurig and a wonderful view of downtown. The price of parking! 4 stars on location since there seemed to be some construction work being done on the roadways. Made it a bit challenging to get in and out with a truck.
Valet service was excellent and rooms were spacious 2 of our five nights out room was not cleaned. The pool was closed for renovation and we were not aware of this when we made reservations.
The hotel is a grande dame of a bygone era in Texas and US history, and the room could not have been more comfortable. The location for anything in downtown Dallas is great, and it is an easy walk almost anywhere in the downtown vicinity. The room was spacious and large, and for a downtown hotel is very quiet. The bathroom fixtures could use updating.
Exterior and lobby have a classic vibe. Seemed understaffed in the evening. Front desk girl sounded stressed and overworked and was extremely unhelpful when we mentioned our breakfast order was not picked up the night before. She said it wasn't "her job"...never the words you want to hear as a guest.
This hotel is beautiful! Staff was very nice and helpful!
Bed sheets were a little dirty. Nothing disgusting, but could have been better
The Adolphus has always been our special hotel. The remodeling that they have done is great.Our room was very spacious and clean. The service, room service and front desk, was impeccable. We love being downtown near restaurants. We had a very relaxing stay at The Adolphus and we will go there again.
Updated room and fitness center Shampoo lotion bottles impossible to use. No instructions in room. Charged for incidentals ahead.
Great attention to detail and employees were amazing! The formal bar was under construction. The cowboy bar was not equal to the standard of the hotel.
Big rooms. Beautiful shower. Comfy beds and pillows. Hard to find something bad to say. Overnight parking fees of $28 was a bit ridiculous. The area also gets a bit shady at night.
Location Breakfast was great The beds are a Queen size, at best, and so uncomfortable! Mattresses are in desperate need of updating. If a comfortable nights sleep is important to you, I would not recommend.
Our room was a one Queen bed. Room is small but very clean and nice. Bed is great. All staff are excellent. Bartender makes great "Mule" drinks and it is a good atmosphere. Breakfast comes with the room. You get hot scrambled eggs, ham, salsa, onions, mushrooms, breads, oatmeal, etc. Drinks for the evening reception: you get 2 drinks each, house wine which is not good, or domestic beer...hope you like Bud or Miller, not good for me. They have plenty of drinks but you pay for anything else. But the biggest problem is the food. We have eaten at Magnolia before and it was great. This time there is nothing good to say except for those who served us, excellent service. I sent my $29 rib eye back when it was well done instead of med. rare. Came back bloody pulp rare. I gave up. The spaghetti with veal meatball sounds great on paper and has no taste in reality. Given the other places around to eat, do not eat here as the kitchen has taken a dive.
Nice size room, location, complimentary bar & breakfast, & shuttle. Housekeeping was TERRIBLE. We stayed 3 nights & they only made the bed every day. They never cleaned the bathroom, 2 of the 3 nights they didn't even replace our towels. I had to track down housekeeping to ask for some. They didn't vacuum or empty the trash. There were only 2 elevators that worked.
Good location, The over all conditions of The building is good And nice Housekeeping never Clean my room one day , The Manager in duty reduces USD 50 from The total Of my bill, but this discount does not compensate the inconvenience of this situation.
Friendly staff. Elevator took too long.
Professional and friendly service, excellent breakfast, good Wi-Fi connection, very nice decor, convenient location in the downtown . Our room had 2 queen beds with good mattresses. The stuff allowed us to check out one hour late and then let us sit in the lobby for an hour in the evening.
Came here for a birthday, everything was wonderful Water pressure in shower was a bit lacking.
Great location. Easy access. Nice large room. Included breakfast.
Good gym. Polite service. Clean. Lots of restaurants and bars around. Shuttle service provided. No late night services and extra amenities.
-free breakfast, location, free wifi, and beautiful building with an excellent view. Manager Gina (spelling?) was very sweet and helpful We checked in for New Year's Eve and specifically requested a room with a view of fireworks. The first room had no view, I had to pay for an upgraded room after going back downstairs. The room we got next was a disaster. Stains on the couches, dirty carpets, chair that was breaking, and fraying towels. The MOD came up to the room, looked at everything, apologized and moved us to yet another room. She was lovely and sent up a bottle of champagne but I would rather not have had to deal with switching rooms which led to us being very late for our dinner reservation. In short- rooms are not well maintained (last room had staples on the floor), only valet parking, SLOW elevators and front desk staff that don't seem to actually care.
Beds were very comfortable!!! no self parking, but using the texting valet service was quick and easy. Nothing gluten free available for breakfast except fruit. Gluten free dinner options were great and deliscious!
Great location, fre bud light draft from 5:30-6:30, free hot breakfast buffet (impressive spread on the weekends). Cool retro boutique vibe. Weird smell in lobby, like cleaning agent masked with perfume. No dresser in our room to stash clothes, just a closet.
The Ghostbar! It was hottt! People keep to themselves though. I loved the roof top pool as well but at first it's a little awkward when people are just staring at you when you first come in because it is rather small. A rude girl named Jennifer that works at the desk. She hung up on me without saying at least a thank you. I had called about revising my statement because a pending transaction was showing on my bank card and I wanted clarification. I called her back right away and told her she was very rude.
near american airlines center the restaurant too expensive
Staff was great Several parties (wedding, birthday, etc) had way too many people in each room and in other parts of hotel. Shouldnt allow but so many people in a room....
The staff knows you well and gives you a very close approach, this way they help you and lot's of times gives you good directions. Friday and Saturday the lobby becomes a Club and sometimes the sound is too loud even in the elevators.
Service was great! I continued to have problems with my room key in the elevator.
Amazingly appointed rooms, amazing decoration, posh furnishings, overall an amazing experience.
Some of the staff were a bit condescending at times. Just because I'm not wearing slacks and shoes that shimmer, doesn't mean I can't afford to stay in your hotel.
Great service, good restaurants and bars. Well done Downtown Dallas is cool but there is a limit to what you can do there now
The staff at The Joule is amazing and incredibly attentive. They upgraded us to the larger room. Someone helped us to our room with our bags. Since we had never been there, he gave us a quick tour of the room and told us all about the hotel. You can tell they are very proud of the hotel, and they should be. It is gorgeous! I have stayed at The W in downtown Dallas, and got the worst service there. The Joule is so much better in every aspect, and it doesn't cost as much.
Everything was indefinably perfect. This was my first experience with a four star hotel, and I walked in with high expectations. They met and exceeded every single one. The environment is luxurious, the staff is very friendly and very accommodating. We were given a ride to our concert venue free of charge, and when no drivers were available to pick us up, the concierge did so himself (Daniel's a great guy). The cocktails in the lobby bar were unique and tasty. The store across from the lobby bar (an art book store) stocks some great additions to any coffee table. And our purchase was transported up to our room with a little note from the concierge: "Enjoy your staycation." We had only told him once that we weren't from out of town, but he remembered. We felt like royalty from check-in to check-out. I highly highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Dallas. Shower didn't have hot water. We didn't alert the staff because we found out too close to check-out. I imagine, with the quality of customer service we experienced, they would have been up really quickly to fix it.
Modern decor and great amenities Not enough wash cloths...
Staff was fantastic! Rooms were fun with great amenities. Small but great for a short trip. Air conditioning issues
The minute you pull up the The Joule you know this is something different. The lobby is unique and modern without being cold and industrial. At check in we were handed a glass of sparkling wine. The staff was excellent. The were very professional yet extremely friendly. Not once did I get the pretentious feeling that I sometimes get from 4 star hotels. Every staff person I came in contact with went out of their way to be helpful and made me feel like a valued guest. The room was very comfortable and the design modern. I could tell that a lot of thought went into the design; picking the fabrics, fixtures, colors, etc. I would here again in a heartbeat.
Cramped slow elevators
The rooms very large and the gym was awesome. They even provided workout clothes and shoes, which I forgot to bring. The staff was very professional, except for the maid service. The maid service was lazy. The staff only cleaned the room once in three nights in spite of our repeated efforts to have it cleaned daily.
Bathroom: it was big, clean, had amazing lighting and neat, futuristic features.The shower could fit 3 people with a huge bench. The shower head was by far the nest thing about the whole stay! It was a massive, square, waterfall that covered every inch of me at one time. This is where the positives begin and end however. My husband took me to the Westin Downtown Dallas for our anniversary. We are not wealthy and my expectations may be too high for today's lack of standards...I don't know. Parking: Self is $26, valet is $30 (only options) Bed: Like sleeping on the floor with only a thin down blanket to cushion you. Room Service: Not only did it take forever to get, but we called 3 different times before we made a choice that they actually had!! They had "run out" of the first 2 choices, and the third choice we were informed, although it was already on the menu, it was new and wouldn't be actually available for another 2 WEEKS!!! A 5 stat hotel shouldn't run out of everything or misrepresent a darn thing in my opinion! Staff: Cleaning lady flat out walked in on us twice! So we had to leave the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door the entire time with the extra lock on. However, the front desk had to call so we could open the door for the towel guy because he couldn't knock with the sign there (maybe the maid could learn from him). TV: Only a handful of channels and the programs/actual episodes, that are the same everyday! I'm talking not just the same program but the exact same episodes everyday we were there. Noise: Although on the second to highest floor, 31 floors up, we heard sirens, traffic, and construction (the entire time)! I understand we were in downtown Dallas, but seriously, I even had to listen to the delivery truck trying to back up and park for almost 5 minutes a couple times a day. We heard every door that opened and closed, and although we were as far away from the elevators as one could get, we heard it EVERY time it moved! Checking out: We requested a luggage cart/dolly THREE times over a total of 35 minutes and still NEVER saw hair of it nor any attendants! We waited until the exact minute of check out time and then hauled it all down by ourselves with no apology or anything. Misc: No vending machines, and the gift shop is an over priced joke even in gift shop standards. However there is a nicely stalked, friendly staffed Seven Eleven around the corner within comfortable walking distance. All of that said.....would I own the bathroom, yes! Would I ever stay there again, NO.....but that's just me and my opinion.
The Bar in the lobby was nice. Grrat location
While the room was not super luxurious - for a business trip - it was perfect. Rather a NYC loft feel (hence the name) with modern vibe. I had a nice view of some of the Dallas skyline. I do believe they really are green conscious - with a little recycle bin in the room so I didn't have to feel guilty about water bottles being tossed. Very close to the convention center and Main Street where we found some nice eateries and pubs (a five minute walk). Super friendly staff from the front desk to the bartender at the lounge. At the end of the day, the bed was very comfortable and I slept well. Erm - the pool area could have used a little help. I have come to count upon the hotel shampoo & conditioner (never bother to pack my own anymore)- but didn't care for the pre-mixed stuff in the wall dispenser.
One elevator of 2 was out most of my stay. There with a large wedding party and we were all going and coming at same time. Very frustrating....
Good location, easy check-in, & very helpful, friendly staff. Wouldn't consider the hipster, trendy decor, setting, etc., a bad thing- just different. Kinda cool (but glad I had researched online prior to know what to expect). The shower wall (foggy glass) was a bit strange, especially for my situation - staying with a friend. There's no room service, but refreshment/snack bar had enough.
Good location. Cool, modern feel. Bed was not the most comfortable, very firm.
The hotel was very clean. The staff was very welcoming. The breakfast is very good. The facilities were fun (basketball room, swimming pool ...).
excellent hotel! Kayak hooked us up with a spacious suite complete with a kitchen and small living room! If i'd come back to Dallas, for the price... this is where I want to stay.
The hotel was clean. The hotel attempted to cancel my reservation due to their overbooking problems. They didn't want to recognize my reservation. After getting rather irate with them, they tried to send me to a sister property. I called and that property was overbooked as well. The desk manager finally provided me my room. I will never stay at this location again. I am a a Marriott Gold member and they treated me like crap.
It's location in the West End where all the events of the Texas/OU Weekend took place.
The hotel had clean rooms, but the beds were not the most comfortable. It is located in a great part of Dallas, central to a lot of entertainment and easily accessible to the highway.
Beatiful lobby and pool. Upscale rooms Hilton hotel policies are not customer friendly. The hotel gave me a lot a problem over wanting to put incidentials on cash instead of my card. I did not have time to go to the bank and deposit funds but I had cash. They were not flexiable with me.
The location. Walking distance to many attractions. Many college kids were there for the long weekend. Noisy in the lobby area near the elevator on the night we arrived.
The front desk staff gave us a free room upgrade! They provided exceptional service. And not only our deluxe room but the whole hotel was super nice.

I didn't like the bar in the hotel. They said that it closed at 10, and we went in well before 10, but were told it was shut down already. It was our 10 anniversary and we wanted to end the night with one drink, but instead had to walk to a different bar.
Staff was amazing: friendly, incredibly attentive and response time for something was wonderful. Pool was fun and the pool area was well decorated. They could use a bar, though. They lack a restaurant and bar which was a disappointment. The breakfast was unappealing. Eggs were obviously not fresh. Everything lacked taste and the variety was disappointing. The first night our sheets felt like sandpaper and the towels are not soft.

Loved the Free breakfast we were able to attend every morning when we were there because not only the food was good, so was the selection of foods. Also they opened the food bar early enough for us to get to our meetings on time. The on going construction, but of course that is something you have to put up with for the great things to come.
Location: Was very helpful since it was close by to the Tram station. Facilities: Breakfast great and room was fairly clean Cleanliness: In room was good, but each floor had 1/2 the floor closed off (which was left wide open very frequently) for reconstruction. Hallways were a mess and I constantly kept finding pieces of plaster and nails in front of my doorway. Would have been smarter to seal off an entire floor for construction rather than 1/2 a floor every floor (or atleast the floors I saw personally since I went exploring because multiple Ice Machines were broken). Comfort: Besides the construction literally right next to my room, the plaster pieces, and nails... It was fairly comfortable. Location: My only issue was the parking. Even though they gave me a ticket when I gave them my keys you might want to get them a better tracking system. They apparently had lost my keys in the key pile in their office. I had to explain what my rental car and keys looked like just to narrow it down to 3 key sets. Would be kinda worried if this was a personal vehicle. Staff: The check-in and check-out process was smooth I will give them that. As for my other complaints (described in the cleanliness part) was met with 1 of 2 very well rehearsed apologies which seemed more of a blow off apology. Even after telling them I work in another hotel and to just lay it out straight to me (I'm understanding especially since the hotel I work at just did renovations), they still gave me the rehearsed blow off apology. Value for money: I'll let you decide from the above if $100+ per night is worth it. Especially considering this is gonna be ongoing til February 2016 (from what staff said to me directly). As a fair warning they are not advertising the construction on any website except their own. Even if you call up to confirm your reservation they don't even disclose to you (in email or over the phone) that they are under construction.
The hotel was under renovation. The pictures online looked nothing like the hotel.
Would not recommend this hotel. The decor is drabby and outdated. The hotel was undergoing construction so place reeked and covered in dust. Not only was the hotel filthy but the rooms were as well. And no available outlets to charge phone in room except the bathroom. Bums walk around the area, the only parking at the hotel you have to pay for...and it's down the street and around the corner. Overall, bad experience and wished I would've gone elsewhere. However, the staff was friendly.
Clean, good staff, desk was good. Tiny, non-flatscreen TV.
Downtown location Histroic Nice people Easy to get to Cleanliness particularity in lobby and elevators. Poor workout facility...2 macines, no weights
Great location Parking is not included
Super friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast in the morning. Quiet and comfortable. Good location for any downtown visits. A bit beat up, looks like they are working to improve. Slow elevators, iffy plumbing and HVAC.
Dirty, smelly, no amenities. I thought I was getting a bargain but instead got two nights of hell.
Very convenient for area Garage parking terrible service would not ever park there again.
Great value for location downtown. Walking distance to the JFK memorial and museum. Vending machines on 2nd floor. Extra towels provided. Iron did not work (cheap & leaking). Mold in sink. Lime build up on shower-head. Paint chipping thought room and hotel. Outdated small T.V in room.
Front desk staff was helpful, and the breakfast was good. No insulation in the walls...the couple next door fought for two and a half hours starting at 2 am. Also, none of the lamps were plugged in when we got there and there were giant cleaning carts in the hall ways right outside of the door.
Price was great for the location. Staff is friendly. Room itself was adequate. Drab, drab, drab and breaking down. One elevator not working. Working elevator said no more than four people. Old tv blaring in the lobby. Room was drab and worn. Worst of all, my shower stream came out as a trickle. No time to deal with it as I discovered it in the am. Told the front desk upon checkout and was simply told, "sorry."
