The hotel was really nice. It was 1 mile from the American Airlines Arena. Staff was great. Rooms were spacious. Bistro food was really good. We ate buffet. I heard that the afternoon Tea is luxurious. The town car driver was great

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. The entire staff went above and beyond to insure we were well attended to. Whatever the request one did not have to ask twice. It was some what evident many of us were...

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.

My wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary last May and had a wonderful time. Everything from the champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to the friendly and helpful staff was perfect! Several downtown restaurants, shops and sights within walking distance. We had a large room with a wonderful view of downtown Dallas. We will definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel in early summer on a recommendation and have returned twice. I love the elegance and old world charm of this early 1900's hotel and complimentary decor. The property is well maintained and the staff are knowledgable, extremely friendly and already feel like family. The hotel is within easy walking distance of historical area and other...

This charming, but dated property is beginning to suffer somewhat from lack of maintenance. The staff are super, friendly, very helpful and charming which I love so much about Texans and this hotel.

Good hotel, but not anything more than you would expect at this price. Our room did not have a refrigerator and as there was a huge conference happening and the hotel was full, we had to go without. A pleasant experience but not a very lively part of town.
