The Joule Hotel, named for the international unit of energy, is the stunning product of a revitalized 1920's neo-gothic landmark Dallas building, three restored buildings of 1930's vintage, and several new structures. A visual masterpiece from award-winning designer Adam D. Tihany, the hotel creates a tasteful union of old world quality and contemporary design, while densely populated throughout by museum quality artwork from names including Tony Cragg, Tony Tasset, Andy Warhol and Richard Phillips. In addition to new guest rooms, spectacular multi-story penthouses and bespoke lobby experience, the property includes an impressive glass-fronted rooftop cantilevered pool, subterranean spa, rooftop terrace with glass pavilion, beautiful event spaces, first-class dining, vibrant cocktail destinations and one-of-a-kind shopping experiences. The Joule is an artfully delivered experience set in the heart of downtown and within walking distance of the Dallas Arts District.

It’s my first stay at The Joule. What a great experience! Everyone is welcoming and happy to work here. Starting with the valet, I immediately knew I picked the right hotel for my stay in Dallas. Then Paul at the front desk… professional, helpful, and he immediately made me feel right at home. I travel a lot for work. I’ve stayed in many hotels. The Joule is a must stay! Thank you Paul and all the front desk staff, you are awesome. I will be back and I will tell my friends.

We stayed for the CFP game (Roll Tide!) The Joule was beautifully decorated for Christmas and is a well appointed, luxury hotel. Lobby is dramatic and beautiful. Enjoyed the best cappuccinos in lobby coffee shop. We also dined at CBD Provisions and enjoyed it tremendously. Hotel staff and concierge were very professional, pleasant and had good walking distance suggestions for other restaurants. Very easy to grab Ubers. We will definitely stay at The Joule again.

Thank you for choosing the Joule and taking the time to share your feedback. It was a pleasant review to read. Seems you had a good opportunity to enjoy the services and outlets. Next time around try “The California” at The Weekend Coffee Shop. That’ll get you ready to take on any day. As well, the “Tuna Nachos” at CBD Provisions is the perfect savory appetizer to add a kick to the day! Our Concierge Team will gladly set you up. Please come back and visit us soon! Cheers, Richard Montenegro Guest Services Manager

Service is over-the-top gracious and thoughtful. Personal touches made us feel like celebs instead of the grimy family we were, coming off a 7 week camping trip!! Champagne, coffee in room, personal note from the manager, turndown service, lovely pool, great restaurant- everywhere you turn the staff is smiling and thoughtful. 10/10 recommend. Can’t wait to return one day!! This place is for real! LOVED IT

We love The Joule so much! We have been staying at the hotel for a girls' spa day and overnight stay for the last 6 years (except for 2020, due to COVID restrictions in the spa). The staff is always very accommodating and attentive; I love the new text program they've implemented since we were last in. I was texted by the front desk staff and was able to ask questions via text instead of calling. We requested in-room services (buckets of ice and extra blankets) and special items (they found a fan for me - I love the white noise while sleeping). They always set us up in a suite with an adjoining king room and we're able to have an entire corner of the hotel to roam around in. Please don't miss CBD Provisions for brunch or lunch. We have been consistently pleased with this thoughtful spot for years. The spa is fantastic and quite literally transports you to a subterranean paradise. I look forward to this trip every year and am already anticipating the next Christmas trip! You will not be disappointed when choosing to stay here. The Joule offers a special experience you won't want to miss! Oh, and try the lobby bar as well; delicious cocktails while waiting for the shuttle is a must-try. Highly recommend!

It seems like a very Merry Christmas indeed! You sure took advantage of the full Joule experience. Like I always say, "life is too short not to pamper yourself"! We are glad you enjoy the new SMS system, we are trying to say upbeat with a close pulse on all your needs at all time. We thank you for being our guest and can't wait to do it all over again next year. Let us know when you are ready! Cheers, Richard Montenegro Guest Services Manager

My wife and I are world travelers. We live in Dallas and were so pleasantly surprised to find luxurious accommodations so close to home. We found the staff to be customer service experts, the room was incredible, and the restaurant satisfying. Thanks for making our anniversary celebration special. We'll be back, see you soon!
