We stayed here for 5 nights and had problems with the room every day. First we check in and the room we received had not been clean at all. We even noticed that someone had left a dirty sock behind. The couch was so soiled we didn't want to sit on it. We contacted the front desk and they offered...

For my birthday, my husband took me to stay at the Adolphus Hotel and we had dinner in the French Room. The room was lovely although we were not in it much. The hotel was so beautiful, that we wandered around looking at everything. There were little sitting areas everywhere, for sitting and talking, or just reading a book and...

We had 8 rooms and dined at The Adolphus Walt Garrison Rodeo Grill and in the morning we had 22 for breakfast at The Bistro. It was perfect. The rooms were beautiful and the service and meals were wonderful.

My husband and I returned recently to The Adolphus for a brief getaway, and The Adolphus was as grand as ever. Great experience from beginning to end, with a lovely room, world-class knowledgeable (and personable!) service on par with any of the stellar hotels I have stayed at in NY, London or Paris. Truly a crown jewel for the city...

My husband and I enjoyed a getaway weekend to the Adolphus. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, the rooms are beautifully furnished, and it really is a magical place. The old world elegance is breathtaking compared to other modern looking hotels. We stayed in a very large junior suite.

The story of how such an elegant 1910's hotel was built in Dallas is an interesting one. It's all thanks to beer by Adolphus Bush.... The hotel is still elegant in a stodgy sort of way. The public areas are all wood paneled, patterned thick carpets, and sink into arm chairs. If you want to experience the style of the...

We stayed at The Adolphus Hotel this past weekend for the Dallas Marathon. This is the second time we've stayed here and it did not disappoint. This is a historic hotel and the decor inside give you that image. Many people complain that this hotel is too old looking but it's very elegant. The lobby is gorgeous and I've had...

A friend of mine and I came to the Adolphus for the Dallas Half Marathon. It was a perfect location for this event. We were able to walk directly out to the start of the race. The valet and concierge guys out front were always polite and knowledgeable. The room was very large and clean. Beds were very comfortable. The...
