A two-year restoration and renovation project has been completed at the 407-room Adolphus Hotel, the tallest building in Dallas when it opened in 1912. Local designers Swoon the Studio oversaw the revival of the historic property, with an eye toward welcoming groups.
 
Fully redone was the 19th-floor ballroom, which has floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the city. For casual group moments, many sitting areas were added throughout the hotel, some with fireplaces. In all, the hotel features 24,000 square feet of meeting space.
 
Also new at the Adolphus is a contemporary restaurant, the City Hall Bistro, serving Southern European-inspired fare all day. The French Room, the hotel's classic fine-dining spot, has been redone and appropriately features French cuisine; the French Room Bar and Salon has been refreshed as well. Quick bites and hot drinks are available in Otto's coffeeshop.
 
The Spa Adolphus is another new offering, a 5,000-square-foot facility with six treatment rooms and a menu of treatments featuring plant-based products from Red Flower. A rooftop pool with a full bar now accommodates small groups for private events.
