The stay was for business and honestly it was ok. The hotel is going through renovation so there was a lot of traffic in my floor. The hotel has history and is a little spooky but overall ok. The room was huge and wifi was great. The hotel staff was alright they really make you feel welcomed. I personally would... More

I recently visited Dallas and loved my stay in the Adolphus. The hotel lobby bar had beautify character and the staff were warm and welcoming. The bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. I understand that the bedrooms are to undergo a reverb and I hope they bring the charm of the lobby to the rooms.The hotel is situated close to... More

As always, the Adolphus gave me first-rate service along with their amazing architecture! I never tire of the old-world charm this hotel possesses. Their valet workers are especially keen at making sure my car is always kept safe! Ask Paul for an Elvis song and you just may think the king has come back for a brief moment!

The history of this hotel is really interesting and definitely worth a stay just to explore and learn about Adolphus Busch and his impact on Dallas. Room was gigantic but dated. Beds were comfortable. Good walking location to a few bars and restaurants. On site bar/restaurant was lacking in service but food was good, just took forever.

Had to run in and out of Dallas this past week and stayed at a wonderful hotel. The Adolphus Hotel is one of these gems that you don't get to see enough of any more. It is right down town (old section) and is under some renovation so please don't let either of these through you. It is all old... More

We really enjoyed our recent trip to this unique hotel. The atmosphere and attention to detail was stunning, especially within the bars and restaurants. The rooms were v spacious, comfortable & well-equipped. They do need updated and I understand a refurbishment will be underway soon - do not let this put you off staying and take advantage of some of... More

I stayed at the Adolphus for 2 weeks. It was the better part of my stay in Dallas. The hotel is over a hundred years old, but I wouldn't say it's necessarily dirty its just got a hundred year patina. For me the staff was kind and courteous unlike you find in most hotel chains today. It did have old... More

Wonderful regal, old world elegance. The staff were all professional and friendly. Amazing restaurant for a romantic dinner. Loved this hotel, the only negative thing i can say is that the pillows were not to my liking.
