Tore and I picked a direction and started driving. Before long we were in downtown Dallas, visiting our favorite haunt: The Adolphus Hotel!
Neither of us were dressed for the occasion but that didn’t stop us. It is our home away from home and The Adolphus is always welcoming.
We all know this is not a normal year. At the entrance of the lobby we found a sign of the times.
Once inside we saw the schedule of special events.
The key reason to visit The Adolphus during Christmas is to admire the tree. All three of us had to get our photo. Percival had to be the first, of course. He’s very photogenic.
Tore and Percival.
Percival and me.
Fireside chat with Percy.
The iconic mirror across the elevators.
I have photographed this area before and showcased it in previous posts. But it’s always fun to see it with Christmas garland and lights.
One of my favorite spaces below. During normal times there’s a lot of hustle and bustle.
The next set of photos takes an interesting twist. If you’ve read my first Adolphus Hotel post, you may remember I own a Baker Hotel bellhop jacket. The Baker Hotel used to be where the AT&T building is located below. When we have visited in the past, this area was under construction – this is the first time I’ve been able to get the view below.
The shot below was taken February 2019. Not the exact spot but it gives you a visual of the construction.
To the left of the AT&T building shown above, is a new park! Check out the view below, you can stand in the park and admire the view of The Adolphus!
Here’s the view of the “park” in February 2019.
Another amazing view.
Another spectacular view of my hotel. When Tore and I stayed at the hotel, he had one of the rooms facing the park. (at that time it was nothing but construction)
More views of The Adolphus, above the parking garage is the rooftop pool.
Oh, and I almost forgot to point out the head we spotted. You’d think that was something I planted for the shot, but no, someone really left a cosmetology head on the sidewalk of downtown Dallas. What luck that Tore spotted it. 🙂
And of course, Percival had to get in the shot and so did a lady with Christmas tree leggings and a one wheel skateboard.
This was the perfect way to spend our Christmas 2020!
