Overview

The array of modern amenities all earn high praise
The smallest rooms are tiny, starting at 212 square feet

Some hotels aim for historical luxury, while others lean more toward contemporary-chic. The Joule does both, combining antique accents (check out the massive mechanical wheel in the lobby) with multicolored lighting and modern art. Recent guests say they were beyond impressed with the decor, as well as the numerous amenities, including a library and several shops. The Joule's stunning infinity pool is also worth a look: Its daring rooftop design earned it a spot on our list of the Prettiest Hotel Pools. And when dinnertime rolls around, grab some contemporary Texas fare at CBD Provisions. The hotel's location isn't bad, either; rooms look out over Main Street in the heart of Dallas' historic district.

Alas, the cool vibe doesn't extend to the rooms which are plush (Frette linens, Bose Sound systems, Bulgari toiletries) but a bit standard in looks: shiny lacquered furnishings off-setting, neutrally toned furnishings.

Original marble flooring, elevators and historic staircases were combined with famed designer Adam Tihany’s contemporary aesthetic, casting a sophisticated and luxurious light through the property.
