We were downtown last Friday and heard of the remodel so walked over to take a look. ...omg. Rooms are twice the size, roof top pool and the original white marble staircase and bar...

We went to Dallas for an overnight trip and wanted to try a different hotel. We stayed at The Adolphus and loved it! They are just finishing a complete renovation so the restaurant wasn't open yet and the concierge lounge was still being renovated. But all the rooms are up to date and the lobby is done too. Public spaces...

This is an awesome hotel. The service was impeccable and the spa is a dream. The newly remodeled rooms are beautiful. I was sad they got rid of all the antiques but the new decor is ultra chic. This is a great deal and the location is great.

Its beautiful, the rooms are stunning, the bed was one of the best i have ever slept in. BUT it can be a very confusing hotel. I checked in, walked up the stairs and was in the bar, and had to search to find the check in desk. Thats a problem. Once i found it, check in was easy. I...

This was my first visit to this historic hotel. So glad we chose it! Very classy, understated and convenient to Neiman Marcus. The bedding/bed was divine! The staff was courteous and professional. The heated pool area was lovely but no hot tub. The gift shop is closed due to restoration but there is a CVS pharmacy within walking distance. Valet...

It's time to put all the pieces together Adolphus. There is no question about the historical beauty of the hotel. There is no question that the staff is remarkably friendly. Putting it all together, well, you're not there yet. Starting with the the inability to break a $20 at the front desk should have been my first clue, but, after...

This hotel was having renovations done while I was there. But there wasn't any noise or disturbance. It was very peaceful in fact. The room was huge. It had two king beds bit a large entertainment center, a walk-in closet, glassed in shower and large bathroom. There was also a sitting/reading area in the room with a nice floor lamp....

I stayed here on business in February. The hotel is an amazing old building and the lobby is beautiful. The room was very nice as well. Staff for the most part were great, but I did witness a full blown argument between a lady working the front desk and her male counterpart ending with her screaming at him to never...

We stayed at the Adolphus Hotel for a weekend while attending a wedding. They were still working on 2 of the restaurants, but the rooms and other public areas were complete and lovely.
