Expert reviews

Frommers review:

“The equivalent of the Plaza in New York City or the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City, the Adolphus is the grande dame of Dallas hotels. Built in 1912 by beer magnate Adolphus Busch, it’s a landmarked Beaux Arts storehouse of treasures.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Dallas.

Lonely Planet review:

“The 422-room Adolphus takes us back to the days when gentlemen wore ties and hotels were truly grand, not bastions of ascetic minimalism. Just exploring the 22 floors of this 1912 labyrinth, now part of the Marriott empire, is an adventure. Note that room sizes vary widely.”

Forbes review:

“Situated on the site of the town’s original City Hall, The Adolphus has been a part of the fabric of Dallas life since its opulent doors first opened in 1912. Built by beer magnate Adolphus Busch of Anheuser-Busch fame, the beaux-arts-style building was modeled after a German castle and stands 22 stories over Commerce Street.”

What guests liked

All you need to know

With over 400 rooms, The Adolphus is a hub for action. Usually, boutique hotels are much smaller and more inclusive to your needs. This one flips the script and gives you upscale amenities that will take your stay to the next level. With smaller boutiques, you usually don’t have access to a great restaurant, bar, or some of the other perks. At the Adolphus, all of those come in the best form possible.

Along with a great restaurant, a unique factor is the spa and beauty salon on premises. After a busy day of exploring Dallas, take to the spa and relax. At other boutique hotels, usually of smaller size, you can’t have access to these features without leaving the site.

If you have a little extra room in your budget, splurge for the executive king suite and really take your stay up a notch. If you want to spend more time in the city and not so much in the actual hotel, save some money and get a basic room. These will surely get the job done. No matter what you decide to go with, The Adolphus is a fantastic place to reside in Dallas.

Old world charm with top rate service.

Great location downtown. The service was exceptional, professional. it is a beautiful older building with modern, large rooms. Complimentary bottle of wine was bought to our room which was a nice gesture. I can’t say enough about how kind and friendly the staff were!

in addition to the usual extra taxes, there was a fairly high parking/valet service. I had already tipped well for this service. Another facility fee was added for several little extras. We didn’t use any of them so that was a waste. I would still stay there again though.

Fabulous with a knowledgeable staff that is super accommodating.

This is such a fabulous experience, every staff member, every area was fantastic. Restaurant was amazing.

The only thing that could have been better was my length of stay, I wish I could have stayed for a month....

Your pool is beautiful but we were unable to use it because it was closed due to someone threatening to jump off the balcony at the building next door.. We enjoyed staying in your historic hotel! Next time we will take the historic tour. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable. The room was quiet.

There were a lot of restaurants and eating options nearby, but no retail shopping. Also, the pool was closed while we were there so we didn't get to use your beautiful pool.

Loved the location. Very nice accommodations -- room was clean and updated. Staff were very helpful!

Wish more food options were available. Limited hours (assume due to Covid?) and not many choices close by. Escalator wasn't working during most of our stay.

Very good

Very good

The room was beautiful and the location was perfect.

The shower door wouldn’t stay close. Also, it was a 20 minute delay for the water to heat up.

Glad the hotel could accommodate me at short notice!

Everything, a gorgeous hotel! And unique, not a typical hotel.

In the bar and coffee place, they had very few people working. I ended up leaving the bar before anyone took my order and waited for 10 minutes for my coffee.

Traffic & noise from HVAC

Birthday Bash

It was a beautiful mix of history and modern feel throughout the whole property. I loved that they had live music by the bar. They accommodated our last check out request and the high tea was a big hit.

I can’t complain about anything

Very good

1. The live music 2. The Coffee place 3. The view from my window 4. The decor
