The Adolphus

The Adolphus, a baroque masterpiece, has been a legend among Dallas historic hotels since 1912, when St. Louis beer baron Adolphus Busch was approached by city founders to erect a luxury palace worthy of the Lone Star State. Style, elegance and grandeur came together in 21 stories of historic beaux arts splendor that critics named "the most beautiful building west of Venice."
