      than 8 hours on a plane. At least on a bus, you can stare out the window and watch stuff go by. And also there are the rest stops where you can get out and stretch your legs or go into the gas station and use a real toilet. Try doing that on a plane at 40,000 feet.

      Try TaskRabbit.com for unconventional transportation options. Or there's also GreyHound - Free WiFi, lots of head and leg space, leather seats, comfortable and clean bus stations in both Houston and Dallas I know.

      I've only taken the greyhound from Houston ans San Antonio so but that is a pretty good way to get around, However renting a car is more beneficial.

      The huge property is Texas proud and is designed with plants and trees that are native to Texas and even a fun Riverwalk that’s similar to the one in San Antonio. There’s Opening Bell Coffee Shop has a bell like the Alamo and the Riverwalk Cantina is a fun Tex-Mex restaurant with light fixtures made from tequila bottles and wine bottles and there’s a sculpture that a Gaylord Star made out of beer bottle caps. Gaylord Stars are the employees, the Gaylord wants you to have fun there and clearly they’ve found that to have happy guests you need to have happy staff and that they’re having a good time helps make your stay a little more enjoyable. Forgot to grab a souvenir, don’t worry, there’s a shop where you can pick something up for the most picky on your list but the children’s clothing shop has some really cute stuff and the Texas themed shop even has cowboy boots. If you’re there in the summer you’ll want to head to Paradise Springs, the Resort Pool and Lazy River where you can float the river, ride the zip line or even grab a cabana and relax with your friends, it’s so much fun that you may never get a chance to check out the cute shops and wineries in the quaint town of Grapevine.

Guests pull into what feels like their own driveway, type in a preset pass code and throw their things down in a room with every luxury known to modern man. All without speaking to or seeing a single person. Everthing is simply taken of already. Including a full range of luxury personal amenities—or what owners Kimber Cavendish and Vicki Faust consider “necessities”—like complimentary wifi throughout the entire hotel, Malin and Goetz bath products, Happy D freestanding bathtubs in the suites, a virtual concierge (complete with desktop, printer, copier and scanner) and a “super automated” coffee system by Franke Flair in the common area, featuring specialty coffee drinks with the press of a button at any time of day.

      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.
