This is by far my favorite hotel to stay in. The hotel itself is decorated beautifully in an old world style. You can almost feel the history. The rooms are very well equipped and clean. The staff is extremely helpful. We called housekeeping several times because we forgot toiletries at home & they were always kind and helpful. We have... More

This is a hotel that literally takes you back in time to old world elegance. From the moment you are greeted at the door until checkout, you are met with friendliness and elegance. The entire staff went out of their way to assist with anything we needed. We were in town for a convention held at another hotel and welcomed... More

Large room with spacious bathroom with marble floors and sink was nice. But many issues lurked beneath the surface. The bellhop took over 20 minutes to bring our bags to the room. The thermostat completely didn't work. The room smelled like mildew according to my husband although I actually couldn't smell it.

This property has beautiful architecture. This historic hotel greets you when you walk in. The rows of keys at the check in sets the tone for classic. The hotel feels GRAND. The rooms are dark, not much light. My room had one lamp. The bathroom was also dark. The bathroom was very large, as was the room. The closet was... More

This is not the usual hotel that I choose. Normally I'm in the modern hotel, free wifi, and a swimming pool. But this time I didn't make the reservations. That being said, this place is incredibly nice, just not my taste. But that's not why I gave it 4 stars. I did that for some of the details listed in... More

What a grand hotel. Centered downtown within walking distance of most activities is this jewel of a hotel. It is about a 30 minute drive from the airport. Nice rooms, comfortable, beds, attentive staff. There is a real nice restaurant- the French Room if you are really hungry. There is a cowboy bar and grille for regular food and a... More

Dear Guest, It's a joy to read that you love The Adolphus. Your description of the hotel as an historic mansion is apt.

After you have checked in and put your bags down, go to the bar. How do I say this and it still be taken as a complement - the bar reminds me of the elegant bar in "The Shining".

The Adolphus Hotel is in the heart of downtown Dallas and is quite old and old fashioned. It was fun walking in the doors and feeling like time had gone back a hundred years. Of course, because it's an older hotel, there was a musty and dampness to the air inside, so it kicked up my allergy response. However, it... More

When you have been traveling around the world for many years you start to appreciate hotels with atmosphere and style rather than fancy "plastic hotels". * Staff is friendly and professional. * Rooms are nice * Lobby and reception is exactly as they should be: brass, carpets and old style furniture.
