With a name like Adolphus, one need not say more. Old world elegance and quiet sophistication ooze from every corner of this historic Dallas landmark. And for that I forgive them for not having a pool. Walking in I certainly felt transported to another world. One in which I felt compelled to order a martini and cozy up to the piano bar. Though not needed, they are under renovations to improve their already breath taking property. The halls of the lobby are adorned with photos and news clippings of famous guests including Queen Elizabeth II. Often times older hotel suites are still quite small but here, the executive suite was quite large. Restaurants range from the elegant French Room to the Rodeo bar and grill. Something for everyone. Service is top notch and such a treasure to downtown Dallas.Recommended for:

This is a truly world-class hotel. From the moment you step up to the front door you can feel the age and quality of this historic place. The queen of England once graced it with her presence, so it's literally up to royal standards. The rooms feel like they were actually designed rather than simply filled with furniture. The staff is prompt, attentive, and friendly. Just walking down the halls is an experience in itself.
Be sure to visit the French Room even if the restaurant is not open for business. It lives up to its name and does not seem kitchy. It's the kind of room that was made for high-end wedding receptions, and the view of the city outside does not take away from this feeling of elegance.
Even if you're just in town for business, be sure to wander around the hotel. It is almost like a museum. There are several places to sit comfortably, and you're likely sitting near or on something antique. Having said that, it does not feel old. They have simply taken care of this place for generations.Recommended for:

Queen Elizabeth II and Oscar de la Renta have stayed at this luxurious 1921 hotel located in downtown Dallas. It's like no hotel I've ever seen before. You are instantly swept into another time when walking up the main stairs, seeing the Flemish tapestries and a Victorian Steinway piano in the bar area. The display windows in the lobby show awards for Top 25 Restaurants in the World for the hotel's The French Room restaurant.Recommended for:

I had a nice stay here, and like the downtown location. The room was well appointed, and I enjoyed getting to know one or two members of the staff during my stay. I would stay here again, but there are so many great choices in Dallas that I am not sure when.Recommended for:

With a name like The Adolphus, it would be hard for anything but old-world luxury and opulence to come to mind. From my first step into the historic building, in every direction I looked the surroundings were bathed in rich, dark wood, tapestries, brass and ostentatious chandeliers. It’s easy to feel like you need a sport coat just to check in here—but what would you expect from a hotel so close to the flagship Neiman Marcus? Despite the age of the hotel (opened in 1912), the rooms are incredibly spacious, well-appointed and carefully-maintained while holding on to their classic charm and décor. One of the onsite restaurants, The French Room, is one of the nicest (and more expensive) places in town. There are also a few other options including more-casual Bistro and the western-themed Rodeo Bar and Grill. All in all, I’d consider this to be the place for a mature and sophisticated relative or old-school titans of industry.Recommended for:

Adolphus Busch, of the St. Louis Busch Beer family built this building in 1912 as a gift to the city and that is exactly what he did, celebrating its 100th anniversary year this hotel is almost Victorian with a classic European elegance that you only find in buildings with great history. As soon as you reach the front desk you catch a glimpse of history, there’s an entire wall with polished brass keys as a reminder and from there, you enter into what can easily be described as a palace with $14 million dollars in art that you could spend days absorbing while enjoying afternoon tea or coming to dine in any of the three restaurants. In the 80s there was a renovation that took the hotel down to the bones going from 1100 rooms to 422 which explains why the rooms are so large with sitting areas, also interesting about the rooms is they each have a picture of the top of the hotel because when you’re on the ground you don’t get the chance to appreciate the architecture. The Adolphus hasn’t spared any amenities, they like their guests to receive impeccable service which is why while you’re there you can work in the 24 hour cyber café or anywhere else with 20 megs of WiFi, workout in the fitness center which has brand new equipment, go through the tunnel to Main Street where there’ a CVS, Chase and Jason’s Deli or grab the complimentary town care that will take you anywhere you want in a decent radius and really, with this location, there’s just about everything Dallas has to offer at your fingertips.Recommended for:
