On Main Street, in the heart of Downtown Dallas
Located on Main Street in Downtown Dallas, The Joule is within walking distance of nearly everything -- high-end shops, tourist attractions, and top-notch restaurants. Many of the city's finest hotels are in the downtown area.
Downtown Dallas is the city's central business district, but the area also boasts tons of attractions, shops (including the Neiman Marcus flagship), galleries, and restaurants. Downtown has recently been undergoing some major changes, particularly with the rejuvenation of the Arts District, home to the AT&T Performing Arts Center. The city has proved to be a cultural center, boasting performing arts centers, theaters, and numerous historic sites.
The Joule is one of the coolest -- and most luxurious -- hotels in Downtown Dallas. It's located in a historic building dating back to the 1920s, and its decor is a mix of old and new -- funky furniture and patterned rugs are juxtaposed against dark wood paneling and antique touches in the lobby (including two giant cogged wheels), and the hotel has an extensive art collection, including works by Andy Warhol. There is a popular lounge downstairs and the bathroom walls are made of frosted glass (though a curtain can be pulled across), so this hotel may not be the best pick for families, but all can enjoy the cantilevered pool which juts out over Main Street.
