Top Reasons to Visit The Fairmont Dallas Hotel
- The “Arts District Hotel,” as it’s often called, is located in the heart of the Dallas Arts District. In addition to the city’s best theater and music, the area is well known for its architecture, such as that of the Belo Mansion and the Dallas Museum of Art. Both are within a five-minute walk of the hotel.
- There are plenty of dining and shopping options in the area, but don’t miss the alfresco dining and boutique shopping in Uptown and West Village, only 2 miles away by car or taxi.
- At the onsite Pyramid Restaurant & Bar you’ll find award-winning modern American cuisine made using market-fresh ingredients from local markets and purveyors. Dishes also include herbs and spices grown in the 3,000-square-foot herb-and-vegetable garden on the rooftop terrace.
- You can take a dip in the outdoor pool or lounge poolside with sandwiches, milk shakes, or cocktails from the pool snack bar.
- An upscale style permeates all the guest rooms. Expect french-wrapped duvets and chenille throws on the beds and marble-topped desks.
- If you choose to stay in a Fairmont gold room, you will also enjoy a private lounge for gold guests, a healthy continental breakfast, and complimentary canapés and an honor bar.
Dallas: Historical Parks and Rejuvenated Urban Districts in North Texas
Though some know Dallas only for the massive Cowboys Stadium (which is actually in Arlington), the city is also an enclave of arts and nature, overflowing with botanical gardens, art galleries, and live theater. Historic Main Street connects many of the city’s recently rejuvenated urban districts, as well as the popular Main Street Garden, a block-long public park surrounded by architecturally significant buildings. Locals come here to picnic on the expansive lawn or watch a movie under the moonlight in the summer and fall.
A short walk from downtown Dallas, you’ll find horse-drawn carriages clopping along brick streets in the city's historic West End district, which dates back to the 19th century. This part of the city also contains Dealey Plaza, where President Kennedy was assassinated in November 1963. At The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza housed in the former Texas School Book Depository, you can visit the spot where Lee Harvey Oswald is believed to have shot at Kennedy’s presidential motorcade.
Joggers and bikers can zip through the fashionable Turtle Creek neighborhood, located about 4 miles west of downtown, via the Katy Trail, which follows an old interstate railroad. Back near downtown Dallas, the 277-acre Fair Park is the location of North America's largest Ferris wheel and seven museums and four performing-arts centers, many of which are inside art-deco buildings built for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition.
