Fairmont Dallas

Arrival/Check-In: Arriving in Dallas in the early afternoon ensured light traffic conditions from Dallas Love Field Airport, just 15 minutes from downtown. The hotel valet took my car and, due to the warm and windy weather, I was quickly ushered into the expansive lobby. Worth noting: The valet area has fans and cold bottled water waiting for guests coming and going, with 24-hour attendants who are friendly. I checked in after a few minutes; my room was waiting despite the early check-in, which is always appreciated.

Guest Quarters: I stayed in the Panhandle Suite, one of Fairmont Dallas’ onebedroom suites. A short hallway led into a large living space where I spent most of my time. A small desk sat to the right with plenty of outlets via the lamp base for my laptop, although I used the four-person dining table against the floor-to-ceiling windows while getting some work done. A full sectional and Queen Anne wing chairs filled the space, facing a large television sitting atop the stocked minibar cabinet.

In the large bedroom, the floor-to-ceiling windows continued. A king-sized bed dominated the room, and chic modern lamps and hanging mirrors added a nice touch, along with a full-length mirror. The TV and dresser sat a bit awkwardly far from the bed in a darker corner. However, the nice-sized walk-in closet more than made up for it. The marble bathroom featured a shower/bath combination, and the single sink vanity had good light and Rose 31-branded toiletries. Per the Fairmont experience, I had a nice surprise when I noticed my name customized on all the Rose 31 bottles, which smelled divine and went home with me.

Services/Amenities: The Fairmont offers nice dining options for business travelers, including the Pyramid Bar and Restaurant. Unfortunately, the bar was closed for a private event during my stay; however, I heard it’s a great evening spot for drinks. The restaurant serves seasonal menu options. I had a great lunch starting with some of the best shishito peppers I’ve ever tried and a Caesar salad with a unique coconut and lavender lemonade. The property also hosts a Starbucks, which I loved as I ran out the door for a day of meetings.

The rooftop of Fairmont Dallas is a great amenity, with its views of downtown Dallas. You can spend all day by the junior Olympic pool with drink and food service or roam the herb garden.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

◆ Enjoy great menu choices at the Pyramid Restaurant and in-room dining.

◆ Fairmont Dallas is located in the heart of downtown, surrounded by 5-star dining options.

◆ The friendly staff is perfectly suited for the business traveler.

◆ The rooftop pool is a must if you have a weekend free.
