This was a nice hotel, although the elevator was broken while I was there. While I was only slightly annoyed at climbing seven flights to reach my room, it was a problem. This hotel is ideally situated a block from Dealey Plaza and the other sites I wanted to see.

This is a very historic building, and it is obvious before you even step inside. In other words, it's old. But more to the point, they haven't done much to hide that fact. The fire escape hangs on the front of the building almost as though it's a suggestion. The lobby is very plain but clean. The adjoining restaurant wasn't open for business when I was there, and it didn't look like they were interested in actually reopening it.
You can tell this building was created back when people were smaller because everything is tight. The stairwell has barely enough room for two people pass each other, the hallways are short and relatively narrow, and the elevators could only hold a handful of cramped passengers. The rooms themselves are surprisingly spacious considering how small they really are. The bathroom, for example, is almost as big as the bedroom. There's just enough room to get to your bed. No room for, say, yoga.
Having said all of this, it definitely has its charms. You really do feel like you're in an historic building built in a completely different era.You don't really need that much room because hopefully you came to visit the city and not your hotel room. Guests on the north side have a clear view of the infamous Dealey Plaza and the gorgeous Old Red Museum, and you're within walking distance of a lively and exciting downtown. Though there are many other hotels in the area that are more modern and spacious, the price on this place makes up for most of what it lacks.

Let me be the first to say that I’m a big fan of historic buildings. The construction, their history are all of interest to me so when I visited the Hotel Lawrence, I hoped to see a building restoration befitting of the property’s prime location. That is not what happened. Look, I don’t like to slam properties, but the Lawrence is an armpit. It’s dark, cramped, out of date, and in desperate need of some TLC. When I opened the door to a guest room, I was greeted with an iron burn on the dirty, dingy carpet. The quarters were scarcely the size of my master bedroom at home, although considerable effort was put into the bathroom. Space was at a premium, so there was a glass pedestal sink (no counter space) and a bowed shower curtain over the bath tub so the occupant wouldn’t feel like they were in a phone booth. I was so disappointed that I couldn’t leave quickly enough.Recommended for:History Buffs

Walking into the lobby of the Hotel Lawrence, I was happy to find that the interior was warm and inviting, having the feel of a boutique hotel from another country and definitely in better shape than the exterior which is at the border of rundown and retro that I suppose happens to buildings that have been without renovations for almost 100 years. While it isn’t a hotel with frills and pampering, it is conveniently located near the convention center, the west end, the courthouse and the business district and has a great lobby area where you can relax and people watch and a restaurant that I’d be willing to bet, if you spent enough time there, you could witness some interesting business/legal transactions, just like in the movies. I do really appreciate any hotel, like the Hotel Lawrence, that does something special for my dog, and at check-in, your pet will receive a welcome amenity with a toy, treat and welcome letter. Surprisingly, my favorite part of my visit was the guest rooms which had a large fluffy bed, a working desk and an artistic bathroom with a fun pedestal sink. Don’t forget to go to the 8 pm milk and cookies hour and ask about some of the stories from past “residents.”
