The price of this hotel is fairly cheap compared to similar hotels. However, you will experience some extra fees that make your room rate deceiving. It WILL cost you $15 to park your car through the hotel since there simply isn't another good option. Furthermore, trying to find a garage isn't recommended since the area around the hotel isn't the type of place you want to be walking around. The free shuttle service (within three miles) is nice, and definitely useful.
The hotel does have some charm, they do offer a nice breakfast, the front desk lady was friendly, and there are cookies and milk in the lobby at night. On the flip side the room is pretty small, doesn't have many of the features (fridge, microwave) you would expect, and my room in particular didn't come with a comforter, and the bathroom door didn't close. Also, when I was there, they only had one working elevator.
Bottom line is - Don't be sold on the low price, cause your can expect about $30 in fees/parking. Also, the elegant antique hotel with modern touches isn't really what your going to get. What you get is a hotel that's close enough to many of Dallas's things to do to take the free shuttle, at a decent enough price. The hotel's style, service, and atmosphere are probably negatives at the end of the day.
Cons: Parking, Quality
