Named after German-born brewer Adolphus Busch, of the famed Anheuser-Busch brewing firm, the Beaux-Arts architecture at the Adolphus Hotel nods back to his time, showcasing baroque elegance across plush lobbies and executive suites that date back to 1912. The Dallas hotel's French Room is a city treasure serving up cosmopolitan dishes washed down with award-winning wines, while afternoon tea can be booked in the Lobby Living Room – where you can savor scones, finger sandwiches and confections while listening to relaxing piano music. Dubbed one of the top 10 hotels in the US by Conde Nast, former guests include Queen Elizabeth II, the Vanderbilts, Oscar de la Renta and Babe Ruth.

Neighborhood
The hotel is located on Commerce Street at the heart of the city’s financial district, with attractions like the Texas Longhorn Cattle Drive Sculpture just a few blocks away. Browse the lotions, designer labels, handbags and heels on offer in the flagship Neiman Marcus store before partying at clubs such as Mantus Ultralounge or Opus where you can sip wine on plush couches. Meanwhile, the Sixth Floor Museum in Dealy Plaza highlights the death and legacy of arguably one of the most famous US presidents, John F. Kennedy. 
Hints and tips
The hotel is a historic building and the 19th floor is reputedly haunted. Staff are more than happy to accommodate interested ghost-hunters with rooms on this floor – if you dare! The Adolphus also allows dogs of a certain size to stay in some rooms at the hotel. Charges and restrictions apply so make sure you take a look at the Adolphus pet policy before bringing your dog.

Dallas Work Trip

The photos of the hotel don't represent the hotel very accurately. It is an original Dallas hotel and it definitely looks it. They are apparently starting renovations to update the look but I do not know when that will be complete. The price is a little misleading as it doesn't include all the services you will pay for each day you are staying (i.e. wifi, valet, etc.) In person the staff was wonderful and very helpful and the location was very nice. The coffee shop (Weekend) next door is one of the best i have ever visited.

Great location

Fabulous location and nice building. It is a bit old, which could be great, but they have let some things go unremodeled. Very barebone rooms, but when you're just there to sleep and go out and explore the city, this place can't be beat.

Don't Do It.....! Look Elsewhere....

I am sorry to say, but this hotel leaves a lot to be desired. It is obvious that management is not detail-oriented and that they either don't have experience running a nicer hotel or they just don't care. The rooms are dated, lamps are crooked, bathtubs are far from luxurious and have stained tiles and mold. The furnishings and overall feel of the hotel are long overdue for a revamp. There are crates with glasses stacked next to the bar and many other careless flaws that detract from the experience. I love the architecture and the old elevators, it has potential, but in the current hands it sadly is lacking. There are far better options for your dollar. Come on management - get with the program and up your game here. Your customers and employees deserve better.

Quaint escape

This hotel has a lot of history & it's in a great location. I've never been in elevators like theirs. The beautiful chandelier at the entrance is a nice historic touch. Overall, it's a unique hotel at a good value in the heart of the downtown!

Adolphus Elegance!

We absolutely loved everything about the Adolphus in downtown Dallas! From the moment we pulled up at the valet, through check-in/out, everything was true perfect elegance. The entire hotel staff we encountered were professional and extremely courteous with a smile! Our room was simply breathtaking, old world charm, comfortable, and very spacious! We truly loved everything, and we will be back!

Absolutely LOVE the Iron Cactus, just a block or so from the Adolphus! We sat outside on the third floor, with a view of the park and amazing night lights. Fabulous food, margaritas, and atmosphere!

An oasis in downtown

The public areas are superb ...the staff are wonderful...the view from my 21st floor room was excellent...however, their were no towels at all in the room...I had to call for them...also there was no waste basket in the bathroom...and there were unsightly stains on the couch...I chose this hotel for it's proximity to Dealy Plaza, which I toured...

Romantic getaway

We had a lovely experience at this hotel. My husband and I spent the night to celebrate our anniversary. The room was quaint but beautiful. We didn't have much of a view of the city which was a lil bit of a downer. A few areas needs a paint makeover. The bed was very comfortable. We took several baths since we had awesome hot water. The disappointment came when we went to get our leftovers from the mini fridge the next day. The refrigerator didn't work properly so the food spoiled. Great history retold in the lobby of the hotel and previous tenants.
