We travel to Dallas for pleasure which means a stay at the Adolphus and a sumptuous treat with a visit to the French Room restaurant. The Adolphus is a unique experience compared to the upscale chain hotels. The detailed craftsmanship and materials would be too costly to reproduce today. Coupled with the impeccable service of a staff dedicated to satisfy... More

I stayed here for a week while visiting Dallas on business. The hotel staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The lobby bar is a great place to have breakfast. The rooms are most comfortable and large compared with today's hotel standards. The only deficiency is with the housekeeping. Although the housekeepers are excellent, no one seems to... More

Beautiful historic hotel. The room was very spacious & comfortable, with a yesteryear ambiance that was quaint and cozy. The hotel lobby is gorgeous and luxurious with lots of wood paneling and very comfortable couches. It was surprisingly quiet. The lobby bar was fantastic. Also, I can't say enough about the great staff and the excellent service. The bellman took... More

I was in Dallas visiting clients & stayed through the weekend to spend time with my son who is attending college in the area. The room was VERY spacious & comfortable, though somewhat outdated. I was hoping that by staying downtown, we'd have a lot of options for food, entertainment, etc. within walking distance, but it wasn't the case. The... More

Style is older and could use some updates but it IS a historic hotel. Understand that they will begin renovating this fall 2014. I was here for business and it has a good downtown location. Was able to walk to the JFK memorial. Fun local green spots all around the hotel. Staff was very helpful for directions and recommendations. Elevators... More

I stayed at the Adolphus last year for a business conference and was truly disappointed with the room, the service and the price charged for it. The room was dirty, the curtains looked like they have never been changed or clean, same could be said for the upholstery. There were no ice machines available.The elevators are tiny and we had...

My wife and I spent Valentines at the Adolphus. I was disappointed by the value. The rooms were small and unkept for the amount you pay. But, the lobby and restaurant were great. Still, I stay in Dallas a couple of times a year and if you don't mind the drive there are better places.

This hotel has been renovated, however, they have managed to retain the elegance and charm of yesteryear. Our room was large and comfortable, as was the bathroom. The sconces beside the mirror were vintage of the year it was built. The staff friendly and helpful, with a courtesy car available to take you within a 3 miles radius of the... More

When you book a room at an old and historic hotel like the Adolphus, it's always a gamble. It can go either way. Just because a placebest hotel in town 50 or 75 years ago doesn't mean it is now. I've read some of the negative reviews and was a little apprehensive at what we would find. But our stay... More
