Stay at these historic Dallas hotels and save 40%!

At Southpoint we focus on highlighting the special stays that are unique or historic, that can provide you with one-of-a-kind memories whether visiting on business or vacation.

I especially admire the two small hotel groups that own the Adolphus and the Magnolia Hotels in downtown Dallas for their dedication in preserving historically significant buildings in Dallas and other cities, while reaching high accommodation standards of excellence.

From now until September 7th, stay 3 nights in either of these historic hotels featured on Southpoint and save 40 percent! *
* Note, this special summer rate is available only through the links below and on our main page.

The Adolphus
Opening in 1912 as the tallest building in Texas by the enterprising beer baron Adolphus Busch, the hotel lobby is adorned with priceless antiques and artwork dating to the 17th century.
The French Room restaurant within has been rated the best hotel restaurant in the country.
The Adolphus is a member of the Noble House Hotels & Resorts Collection, a select group of 12 independent hotels and resorts.
Reserve for 3 nights and save 40% (or only $97 a night)!


Magnolia Hotel
Housed in the original Magnolia Petroleum building dating to the early 1920s, the building was the very first American skyscraper equipped with air conditioning. The glowing red Pegasus horse, a trademark of Magnolia Petroleum, still shines above the hotel.
Magnolia Hotels is a small group of distinctive hotel properties in Dallas, Houston, Denver and Omaha. View our hotel group focus on Magnolia Hotels.
Reserve for 3 nights and save 40% (or only $94 a night)!

Thinking of Italy after earthquake

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Italian region of Abruzzo and the small town of LAquila where an earthquake hit in the pre-dawn hours early Monday morning 60 miles east of Rome. The latest death toll of people killed is 235, with the town of L’Aquila the hardest hit. An estimated 50,000 are now homeless. In response to inquiries, Italian authorities have told the United States that they did not need rescue teams. The United States is donating $50,000 in emergency aid to Italy to assist. It is being reported that the earthquake damage was in the mountainous region of Abruzzo, and that all other areas of Italy were uneffected from a tourist standpoiint.
