Hotel is a little worn and shabby, but the receptionist Lenny was fantastic, answered all our questions, even rang round to get a table on Thanksgiving. Hotel shuttle very useful. Location of hotel is good for the historic district, but not ideal for shopping and eateries. Dart station close, are really handy.

We stayed 2 nights and thought it was excellent value for the location and with breakfast included, (we paid $80/night, advance booking). It's an old hotel with old style decor in a brilliant location, especially good if you are in Dallas for the JFK scene, i.e. Dealy Plaza and 6th Floor museum. And especially good for access to Union Station... More

So glad I decided to stay here. Great location very helpful staff. Traveled to Dallas for a concert and shopping we were shuttled to the concert and took a cab back. Overall a great experience.

Excellent value, well appointed, comfortable. Good service, terrific breakfast. Well located on outskirt of Colonial district, 200 metres from the Grassy Knoll where John F Kennedy was assasinated in 1963.

It was clean, comfortable, and friendly. The hotel was what you would expect from a 3 star hotel...just a bit dated but definitely had personality. The desk clerk was wonderful and gave us coupon cards to all the downtown restaurants. The shuttle driver took us to the restaurant and offered to pick us up but we walked back. Everything was...

This hotel is dirty, shabby, in a horrible part of town, offers no parking, and has a rude, unprofessional staff. There was no manager on duty for the entirety of our stay. The shuttle dropped up off at our destination then refused to pick us up as they advertise on their website. We were actually threatened by an abrasive, erratic,... More

Do not stay here. Staff very unfriendly and not helpful. Advertised free shuttle'. It took you where you needed but would not pick you up. This hotel does not know anything about about customer service--dirty and the worst room too.

Arrived in Dallas as our first stop after long flight from the UK. Good points: easy to get to by car from airport. Very pleasant and helpful receptionist ( an older guy called Lenny) who arranged valet parking for us as we were really tired, at no higher cost than it would have been to park up ourselves.Environment was kind...

The only employee I encountered was harshly judgemental and unwelcoming. She accused us of smoking and tried to talk to us like children. We didn't even stay an hour and left. They even charged us a $25 "incident fee."

I had a speaking engagement in Dallas on Monday, September 12. Took a road trip from San Antonio, and was pleased with my room and the environment at the Hotel Lawrence. The staff was very hospitable and I enjoy the quaint character of the room's furnishings. The parking situation was horrible, but an understandable inconvenience in lieu of the great... More
