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!!

My stay at the Adolphus was comfortable. It is an older hotel with old wood and great details. Queeen Elizabeth stayed there. The beds were very comfortable. I wasn't crazy about the interior design. It just didn't speak to me. Our room was huge though. It was conveniently close to the convention center. A bit humid and hot in July....

I honestly have had nicer stays at La Quinta Inn's. We had requested a King Room. The room we received was spacious, clean, as clean as ancient carpet can get and the comforter was newer. That was where the positives ended. It was a queen bed. We could have lived with that, except the center was completely cratered out. There...

The staff are really helpful, the rooms are well appointed. The lounge with the piano bar is cozy. What more can you ask for? The hotel reminds me of downtown Chicago hotels when I was a kid. Not a modern boutique hotel, but old fashioned ambiance. Everyone greets you with a "welcome back" when your return.

My husband and I are from Melbourne, Australia and we spent 16 days touring Texas. We had a wonderful five day stay at the Adolphus Hotel. It was the best accommodation experience we had in Texas, and the other hotels paled in comparison. Everything we wanted to see and do as tourists was within walking distance.

We attended MegaFest (4 nights) and stayed at the Adolphus. I liked the ambiance and its old world charm. It's a bit dated, but I loved the spacious guest rooms, large lobby and mezzanine floor.

We had the privilege to receive a reservation at the Adolphus during Megafest 2013. This property exceeded our expectation. The photo gallery did not do it justice.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay here very much. The room was spacious and well furnished, the bathroom was beautiful, the view was nice, the bed was very comfy. Nice area, the School Book Depository Museum, Dealy Plaza, and the Dallas Aquarium are all within walking distance. Many nice restaurants also close by.
