The Adolphus – in downtown Dallas – is the most “elegant” hotel that writer Larry McMurtry ever stayed in.
I have not yet been there.
I did once stay in the Dallas Marriott Downtown – about a mile away from the The Adolphus – where I met a potential partner for a late dinner and early breakfast.
Reading this, of course, made me reflect on the best hotels I have ever been in.
My list would have to include:
- Park Hyatt Beaver Creek
- Hyatt Regncy Tamaya Resort And Spa
- Jeddah Marriott Hotel
Of course, I hope to greatly expand this list as time and finances allow.
Time will tell, but I was always a sucker for nice hotels…
By some miracle, while right downtown, I managed to spot the Hotel Adolphus, where I took a room for the night. The Adolphus—where, later, I would make a speech or two—was the most elegant hotel I had ever stayed in, although the famous Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, where my rich Panhandle uncles wintered, ran a close second.
