Great location downtown, old world elegance and updated/well appointed to keep the history. Rooms are very well done and up to the new Marriott standards. I was very impressed with the remodel/upgrades and cleanliness of the hallways and rooms.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 February 2017

Did a staycation night with the wife. We stayed here years ago, but the newly renovated rooms are great. Modern and comfy. We had a king executive room. The living room space was cozy with comfy sectional. The new pool is beautiful and heated. Check in was flawless. We planned on just dropping off our luggage at 11:30am and coming...

Pro's: elegance, clean, good hot-water & pressure, large rooms, nice people Con's: poor communication between staff, left-hand doesn't know what right hand is doing, therefore they drop the ball on many things or duplicate them i.e. housekeeping, room-service, valet-parking, bellman-services. Note: Management tries to make it right when you notify them of bad service.

Marriott has opened this wonderful old building as a boutique hotel. Still working out the kinks but it's quite nice. Large rooms. Classic decor. I wish we had more time to hang around the commons and Lobby. It was a nice romantic getaway in a good downtown location. Our corner room was comfy and overly spacious, worth a try but...

Great Location in the heart of downtown Dallas. Rooms are very nice with more then enough space. Historic building with older elevators and escalators. Hotel is undergoing some restoration so no real place within hotel for meals besides room service or up at pool bar. All in all a good hotel and part of Marriott autograph collection. Would love to...

Spent an amazing spring day in downtown Dallas at this rooftop pool. It's elegant yet family-friendly. Don't miss this chefs special cocktail concoction. I had an amazing piña colada that was for once not too sweet and very refreshing. Try the push pops of blood orange raspberry and lemon sorbet. I wouldn't pass the ice cream sandwiches either. The staff...

Very clean and comfortable room. I have not been there since their renovation. Very well done. Hallway a bit confusing as it winds around but overall experience was quite nice. Great location for downtown.

The place to stay in Dallas is The Adolphus. This historic hotel is located in the historic downtown area of Dallas. Neiman Marcus original store is just around the corner! Lots of great restaurants in the area. However, the best is the hotel. The rooms have recently been updated. The food is excellent and the ambience is "old world" and...

Decided late to attend Fanexpo in Dallas. Usually stay Marriott and decided to try this Autograph hotel. So glad we did! Exceptional front door staff;bell door and valet. Special note to Jimmy Gerald Andrew and Carlton. We had a lot of costumes and these guys especially helped us and even got Iron Man into a tall taxi in the rain!...

So I stayed here on a business trip despite being warned of the renovation work. The renovation work was a non-issue. Never heard a sound and it in no way diminished my enjoyment of the hotel. I had a beautiful newly renovated room with a very comfortable bed and huge bathroom. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The room...
