You've checked out Mount Vernon, explored the wine cellars of Monticello, and gazed at the grandeur of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but you could always use some extra know-how when it comes to presidential expertise. Take your commander-in-chief curiosity to the next level at The Adolphus Hotel. Located in the heart of downtown Dallas, this historic property sits along the same route that President Kennedy's motorcade took on that fateful day in 1963.
Built a century ago by beer baron Adolphus Busch, the sumptuously decorated hotel is all Gilded Age glamour. With its glittering chandeliers, intricately carved Steinway piano, and stunning flower arrangements, it's no wonder the hotel has attracted an enviable collection of Hollywood royalty and British nobility.
"Rooms are very large and tastefully appointed in English country-house style, with marble bathrooms and separate sitting and dining areas," Frommer's says. "The suites are about as large as Texas."
Begin your exploration of Dallas by heading to Dealey Plaza, where The Sixth Floor Museum gives visitors access to a replica of Lee Harvey Oswald's sniper's perch, before experience the Big D's lighter side at the flagship location of luxe department store Neiman Marcus. Then, load up on artistic culture at the Nasher Sculpture Center, where you can stroll through rooms of Picasso bronzes and colorful Frank Stella abstracts.
Come mealtime, melt into the cushy velvet chairs of The French Room, the hotel's on-site restaurant hailed by Travel + Leisure as one of the world's top 25 dining experiences, and one of the country's highest-rated restaurant in Zagat. Indulge in a tasting menu filled with dishes like foie gras with brioche and peach jam, Copper River salmon with lobster-potato gratin, or a rack of lamb with blue cheese-and-onion jam. Then, finish things off with one of the pastry chef's artistically crafted soufflés—a dessert good enough to go down in history.
