As before, one of our main goals for visiting the Adlophus, was to enjoy the beauty and quite of the lobby. The location of the hotel made it convenient to visit two excellent restuarants, as weel as do some shopping Saturday. We arrived Friday evening, enjoyed the lobby before we ate at out. We again enjoyed the lobby incuding the...

Pros: Great location if you’re doing business downtown. Directly across street from AT&T HQ. Also walking distance to Sixth Floor and other museums. In street behind the hotel (Elm) there are number of bars, some noisy and crowded, others quiet and mellow … so you’ve got a choice depending on what you’re looking for. Beautiful wood-panel and brass lobby. Friendly,...

The hotel is beautiful, our room was a huge suite, the AC worked wonderully. The bartender Cosme was very customer oriented and the piano and bass music well done. We were not enticed by the dining choices or costs offered. The concierge also only suggests a few restaurants which were not appealing; only a limited type of menu. Most staff...

The hotel is fitted out in an older style, but has bags of character, it is quite busy during the day with conferences & training sessions etc. The rooms are spacious - ask for one with big windows for more natural light.

Stayed at the Adolphus Hotel in September 2013 with my lady. The lobby of the hotel is hands down the best lobby, it is outstanding. The staff was helpful but slightly on the mechanical/get through the day feel vs. connecting with the guest feel. The room was huge, (we had the luxury suite) and it was very clean. I did...

My husband and I wanted to get away in the city and enjoy all the nightlife of downtown. The Arts District is only a short distance away for the theatre and symphony. The Adolphus was in the best location to walk to restaurants on Main Street. We checked in and were greeted by Phil Johnson, what a great first impression....

The Adolphus is my favorite hotel in Dallas. I've stayed here three times over the last ten years and it is consistently classy, good management and clean. If you like historic hotels this is a great choice for Dallas. I avoid the parking valet because there's plenty of public parking lots nearby. Located on Commerce Street opposite AT&T HQ.

The Adolphus is a grand hotel with elegant bearing. It provides a quiet, elegant atmosphere where you feel you are important. Everything is provided for your comfort. The staff are very friendly and helpful. You have all the modern comforts. The food and dining experiences are great. I plan to return any time I can for that sinful bread pudding!!
