I enjoyed staying at the Adolphus Hotel during a recent visit to Dallas to attend a show at the World Trade Center.
The hotel is located in the downtown neighborhood and just steps from Neiman Marcus, fun restaurants and other amenities. The hotel lobby is lovely with all the charm and elegance of a landmark hotel, with a great lobby bar and one of the best restaurants in Dallas - the French Room - and lobby staff that is charming and very attentive.
I wish I could give this hotel a 5 star rating, but the room I had did not warrant that rating I am sorry to say. The room was rather dated, although quite spacious. The bathroom was way below my expectations with very old fixtures (brass soap dish left soap discolored, taupe colored tub and toilet). The housekeeping was also below average as my tub really needed a good scrubbing and when I requested a working hair dryer it wasn't sent up until I asked the front desk a second time.
These are rather minor issues, I must confess. I would definitely stay at the Adolphus again. The live jazz combo in the bar on Saturday night was just great - as was the people watching!
