In 1912, brewing tycoon Adolphus Busch spared no expense when creating the baroque-style Adolphus Hotel as a love letter to Dallas. The city’s tallest building at the time, it attracted notable guests, including Babe Ruth and Queen Elizabeth II, with its opulent decor and high-quality service. Today, The Adolphus Hotel is as celebrated as it was when it first opened—it was named one of America’s Best City Hotels by Travel + Leisure in 2011. The hotel still has its Old-World glamour, too, visible in the lobby’s vaulted skylight, Flemish tapestries, and 1893 Steinway grand piano that once belonged to the Guggenheim family.
Bedecked with vintage furniture, deluxe rooms are as refined as The Adolphus Hotel’s public areas. Ten-foot ceilings and 500 square feet of floor space give each room an airy quality. The executive suites have even more space. Feel free to relax in a suite’s stately sitting room and channel surf on the flat-screen TV.
Of the three onsite restaurants, the AAA Five Diamond French Room is the most buzzed about. Frommer’s says “dinner here is the closest thing in Dallas to a state dinner at Versailles.” Savor classic French cuisine while admiring the frescoed ceilings and gilded sconces. You’ll find a more casual dining area at the barbecue-centric Rodeo Bar & Grill or The Bistro, which serves traditional American breakfast fare.
Highlights of Dallas
There's more to Dallas than the NFL's Cowboys. (As a matter of fact, the team's AT&T Stadium is actually in Arlington.) The city is an enclave of arts and nature, overflowing with botanical gardens, art galleries, and live theater.
Historic Main Street connects many of the city’s recently rejuvenated urban districts, as well as the popular Main Street Garden, a block-long public park surrounded by significant architecture. Picnic on the expansive lawn or watch a movie under the moonlight in the summer and fall.
Historic West End district: Horse-drawn carriages clop along brick streets in this area, which dates back to the 19th century.
At The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, housed in the former Texas School Book Depository, you can visit the spot where Lee Harvey Oswald is believed to have shot at Kennedy’s presidential motorcade.
Katy Trail: Joggers and bikers frequent this route, which follows an old interstate railroad through the fashionable Turtle Creek neighborhood, located about 4 miles west of downtown.
Fair Park: This 277-acre park is the location of North America's largest Ferris wheel and seven museums and four performing-arts centers, many of which are inside art-deco buildings built for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition.

"My favorite way to recharge after a dose of Dallas nightlife is by stopping at Fuel City for some of their amazing tacos. The 24/7 spot is in a gas station, but don't be fooled—one bite of their tacos al pastor will fully explain the long line that forms here at 2 a.m."
