Established in 1912 by beer magnate Adolphus Busch, this downtown hotel has welcomed A-list guests like Queen Elizabeth II, Babe Ruth, and Donald Trump. The Beaux-Arts building, the tallest structure in Dallas upon its completion, is designed in red brick and granite with a corner turret shaped like a Budweiser beer bottle. Inside, The Adolphus is outfitted with dark wood paneling, large flower arrangements, and 17th-century Flemish tapestries. Visitors are wowed by the 422 guestrooms, which are among the city’s largest and feature Queen Anne-style furniture accented by baroque floral prints. The award-winning French Room restaurant is also a highlight.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
