Adolphus Hotel Dallas Reviews
Downtown Luxury May 31, 2011
The Adolphus is home to The French Room, which is one of the finest places to have dinner in Dallas... or the USA for that matter. I have only had the pleasure of eating here once. (very pricey) But it was the meal of a lifetime. The room is decorated and painted very lavishly. (google it-sorry I don't have a pic) The Adolphus caters to whatever you need. Since I knew I was bringing our own wine, I called ahead to ask that wine glasses be placed in the room. They asked "Red or white"? I said "Clear please" LOL-just kidding! I asked that BOTH kinds be available since I was not sure, I would probably bring a Chianti and a Reisling. They had the glasses AND ice in the room just like I asked. I requested that the refrigerator be emptied of the "charge" items so we could use it. But I was told there would be a $25 fee. I was stunned by this. I have never encountered a fee for this request. If you have a car, Valet parking is about your only option. $24.00 a day...but you can take the car out for that price as many times as you like. As long as you like tipping, I guess.? LOL - But I would assume, like we did, you only go out for your extended time and that's it. Valet is awesome. Room service was also good. The food was excellent. We got a package deal "breakfast credit" that we got to put $50.00 towards room service or in the dining area each day. This seems to be a common special, so ask for it. The rooms are quite large with a sitting area. (500 sq.feet) Larger than average bath. We had a view of downtown.... although it IS in the middle of downtown Dallas, so hard to miss a view I would think.
Tea and coffee are also served in the afternoon with piano player. Very nice! (or you may order something else)
* They also have tours available from the hotel that will take you to the Six Floor Museum where Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK.
* They have a car available to take you anywhere you want to go within a 3 (maybe 5) mile radius. Nice if you don't have a car. This saves you the cab one way.
* You can check their website for other options they provide. There is a nice list.
** Most important: The bed was VERY comfortable!! So were the pillows!! I slept like a baby. That never happens in a hotel. The curtains keep all the light out, so you can sleep as late as you like.
The room was spotless. The room SMELLED clean! I always take my own pillows if I drive. But I actually used their pillows they were so clean, new, and fluffy.
