Imagine swimming in a pool seven stories above the ground surrounded by Dallas's beautiful skyline. That's what The Pool Adolphus is about, and it's just opened along with the fitness center.

So what does The Pool Adolphus have to offer besides that view? First off, a special poolside bar that emphasizes health. Morning selections include options like the Chia Seed Pudding with coconut milk, mango and berries, and the Papaya with carmelized pineapple & mint,cottage cheese, melon, and almonds. Lunch and dinner meals vary from the Texas Grapefruit Salad to the Texas Wagyu Burger, and there's fruity popsicles and fancy puddings to top meals off. 

Anyone up there during the day would probably want to be in the pool, but if you go up at night you can enjoy the fire pit or signature cocktails, sit in the semi-submerged lounge chairs, or enjoy one of the six private cabanas. 

Access to the pool and fitness center are limited to hotel guests only. From now until Labor Day, guests can enjoy a special staycation package featuring nightly accomodations, a daily $20 credit at the pool, VIP turndown service, a gude to healthy summer skin care from beauty brand Red Flower and (of course) access to the new rooftop pool. 

Rates start at $179 per person, per night. 1321 Commerce St., Dallas. The pool is open 6 a.m. to 10 p.m Sunday through Thursday and 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. Friday and Saturday. The fitness center is open 24 hours/day.
