Antique furnishings and graceful style in the Dallas Financial District

The Adolphus Hotel offers guests the graceful splendor of a European country manor, in the center of the bustling Dallas Financial District. The historic baroque architecture led Conde Nast Travelers magazine to proclaim Adolphus Hotel to be one of the top ten hotels in the United States. The lobby seating area features numerous antique furnishings and artworks, creating a rich and sumptuous atmosphere. The hotel is close to restaurants, shopping, historic sites and popular Dallas attractions.

Features

The Adolphus has been part of the Dallas landscape since 1912, when Missouri beer baron Adolphus Busch built the luxurious hotel. Throughout its history, luminaries such as Babe Ruth, Queen Elizabeth II, Donald Trump and the Vanderbilts have chosen the hotel as their home away from home.

 

The French Room restaurant has been rated the best Dallas restaurant for several years by Zagat. The restaurant is the only one in Texas to earn the prestigious AAA five-diamond rating, a distinction The French Room has held for over 20 years.

 

Other on-site dining options include The Bistro, a European-style coffee house, and Walt Garrison Bar & Grill, serving hearty Southwestern fare in a dining room filled with authentic rodeo collectibles.

Rich in history with Unparalleled Staff

You can just go the French Room for one of the few 5 Star meals available, but don't miss out on the charm, opulence, and attention this hotel lavishes on its guests. Yes the rooms are not brand spanking new, but neither is that prized antique family heirloom armoire you love. Enjoy the downtown locale - don't forget the Neiman Marcus around the corner!

Working Stay

Over all it is a great place. however the internet connections was an ongoing problem. Got 3 difference "case" numbers from AT&T....when I called the front desk for help...they said: " Thats pretty much what you get with complementary internet."... I stay at this hotel every time I come to Dallas.... They most likely lost a customer over this one... I cannot be without internet when I am traveling. so sad about this.

My room was cleaned once in 4 days!

This hotel was conveniently located and certainly has its charms, but housekeeping was not one of them. I had to call to request things like my trash being taken out and even then, no one would come. In 4 days, my room was cleaned once. My room was also directly under the fitness center, which meant pounding every morning around 6 am. Not quite as relaxing as I had hoped.

The Dallas Art Museum and Nasher Sculpture Center are literally steps away, and are a lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon.

Are you kidding? A service elevator next to my bed?

I think the title says it all. I have one law and two rules for supposedly business-class or luxury hotels. Rule #1 - Good work area and wifi. They did OK here. Rule #2 - Comfortable bed. Adequate. Not Westin or W class, but adequate. Law (the big one) - I should be able to sleep and work when I want to, not when it's convenient for you. Honestly, why does this surprise so many hotel professionals? The hotel can't do anything about noise from the street or from guests in the hallway - but they certainly can control their own noise. My bed (room 924) was the opposite side of a flimsy wall from the service elevators. Starting early in the morning was the roar of the elevators running (sounds vaguely like jets flying overhead) and the ding of the bell. At least I didn't need a wakeup call. Other things. The rooms are dingy and outdated. The lobby is nice, but unless I'm sleeping there, it's not too important to me.
