I read the mostly negative reviews online and was a bit nervous about staying here. There's no doubt that the hotel's interior lobby and rooms are a bit tired and worn out. It like visiting grandma's house with dated furnishings and needing a good cleaning. My room was small but comfortable, clean and the shower was the best part (multiple...

This hotel is as far from modern and upscale as you can get, but the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff more than made up for its obvious deficiencies. The hotel was built in 1925 and it looks it. But the location is close to DART, Dealey Plaza and unlimited restaurants in the Historic West End. The room my wife...

I read the reviews and was super nervous to stay there but all the others were booked. I am so glad we stayed here and we will definitely be coming back next time we are in Dallas. The building was beautiful and so was the room! Very clean rooms. It's am old building so the rooms and bathrooms are small...

My wife and I chose to stay here based on locatation and price. I read the reviews before booking, which seemed to be very negative. My wife and I enjoyed the stay based off the price of the room and location. The rooms are outdated including bed, and television. The bathroom did not have a large sink top to set...

The hotel is a vintage hotel located in the heart of downtown Dallas. The rooms are comfortable with queen beds. A full complimentary breakfast is served each morning from 7:00am to 9:00 am. Within walking distance to the Amtrak station, the Omni Hotel as well as the Federal Building. Very picturesque!

One would expect cozy hotel on budget with the essence of history. However the real experience is so much different! Firstly, it is cold and you can tell that from the first sight. This place would need some reconstruction for sure. Elevater doesnt work, dust everywhere and lots of filth. It looks like there was some cleaning a long time...

If you are expecting a boutique charmer you will be disappointed. I had high hopes. With a hotel this age it's either really good (lots of character and charm) or really bad. This one is really bad. The worst hotel I've every checked in to. I was traveling on business but lucky for me I had some friends in the...

This hotel is about to be condemned for a reason. Booked 3 nights and struggled to make it through the first night before leaving. Filthy, smells disgusting,looks so OLD. Shower didn't work, either did TV. Blood stains on sheets,smashed window. Lastly the room next door had prostitutes all night and I could literally hear them at least 8 times through...

Was only 5 minutes walk from dealey plaza. Actually this hotel was in some of the JFK photos of his visit to Dallas. Room was pretty old but still confortable. The actual reception lounges looked a bit dirty but we didn't stay there to sit in reception. Would stay again.
