Upcoming visit to The Adolphus Hotel in Dallas
This week we will be visiting the Adolphus, a luxury hotel in Dallas. From looking through our large book collection, I located a vintage ad for The Adolphus in a 1947 Texas Almanac. It noted that many of the rooms were air conditioned year round, with circulating ice water, coffee shop and bar. When built in 1912, the Adolphus became the first hotel in the world to have central air conditioning. As noted, several Presidents and entertainers have stayed at the hotel over the years. Each of the 422 rooms have been updated recently in English country house and vintage Hollywood designs. The restaurant, The French Room, has a world following for it's fine dining and service. Look for our hotel feature in the coming weeks.
