I liked the location to the trains going through downtown dallas. It is a high-rise hotel so some rooms overlook downtown. Yes, staff unfriendly and would not answer phone calls to front desk after hours of continous attempts went downstairs in pajamas due to the fact that the heater never worked. Maintance came in to room at 2am even though attempts were made beginning at 11pm. And, the heater was never repaired. The safe in room did not work. The reservation made through booking.com 2 days prior to arrival was not there. So after much delay at front desk and another credit card charge was able to go to room with no heater,no staff that would help, and a safe that did not work.
Service was great! I continued to have problems with my room key in the elevator.
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.
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.
Amazingly appointed rooms, amazing decoration, posh furnishings, overall an amazing experience.
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....
near american airlines center the restaurant too expensive
Came here for a birthday, everything was wonderful Water pressure in shower was a bit lacking.
Good gym. Polite service. Clean. Lots of restaurants and bars around. Shuttle service provided. No late night services and extra amenities.
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.
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.
Friendly staff. Elevator took too long.
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.
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.
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.
The lobby was beautiful, the valet staff was very attentive. Rooms are a bit small but clean and modern. Great location, you can walk to anywhere in downtown you'd want to go. The elevators were being remodeled or something, they ran very slow. But at least they're working on the problem and gave us free drink tickets for the inconvenience.
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!
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.
Location. We walked to dinner. The high ceilings and large windows were very cool. The pillows were cheap, the lighting was poor. Somewhat overpriced considering for $55 more we stayed in a very nice room in the Warwick the next night.
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 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!
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.
Courtesy car will take you anywhere in 1 mile radius... BIG plus for us. Staff are super friendly!
Great service at the bar. Friendly bar staff. Great desk staff in the lobby.
The AC couldn't keep up to keep me comfortable.
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
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.
I wasn't recognized as a gold member until day 3 of my stay. Subsequently was informed I could not receive Executive Lounge access because I did not book through the proper channels, but was told they'd let it "slide". Housekeeping cleaning rags were left in my room.
Beautiful looking building. Nice looking lobby, bar, and front desk. Good location for shopping. Rooms outdated. Have to pay for parking, internet, breakfast. Short on the number of towels that you get. Tub had mold around it.
Area of city. Hotel lobby space Small bathrooms, no courtesy shuttle, no weekend Happy Hour
The hotel is located across the parkway/tollway from the galleria and is also near a lot of restaurants. Our room was clean and the staff was helpful. Parking at the hotel essentially costs $17 per day ($17 overnight or $28 overnight for valet parking). Otherwise, there are hourly rates available.
The room itself was nice and we did get an upgrade to a suite. The room wasn't totally clean. Dried soda on counter in kitchenette when we arrived-maids didn't even clean it when I left a note! Dried silly string in pictures and ceiling. Broken furniture. Disappointing. None of the staff smiles or even seems to welcome you at all. Plus--had to pay $17/night for parking garage across the street.
Over all hotel is nice, near the mall. Staff wasn't very friendly .
Ms Cleo was very helpful
Appearsnce - location - very clean The Noise!!!!!! I did not sleep
Nice size room and very friendly staff
We loved our stay! We were iffy on staying there because of the ratings but it was great. Room was very clean. They do have a parking rate but since you are staying at the hotel the do waive it. It is very quiet and peaceful, our 6 month old slept through the night! Would definitely stay there next time we travel to Dallas! The bathroom tiles in the tub need to be fixed. Nothing major.
I enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the lake outside
Pros: friendly staff, good location, punctual valet, nice bar. Cons: dirty bathrooms with dirt in bathtub, used soap bar still in shower, carpet felt dirty, extremely outdated furniture (felt like I was in a cheap Vegas hotel), bug crawled on me during sleeping, no breakfast included, have to pay for Internet and parking.
