4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This hotel is in a great location if you are visiting the TCU, botanical garden, zoo, or Colonial Country Club area of Fort Worth. While the hotel is older and resembles an apartment complex more than a hotel, it is exceptionally clean and well kept. I had an upstairs room at the back of the property overlooking the river and a green space - very scenic and quiet. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. As in most Residence Inns, the happy hour and breakfast are hard to beat. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to Fort Worth.

Room Tip: A room further away from University wil be quieter.

Nice clean , roomy , had a nice view of the river. Staff was excellent and caring!!! Loved the complimentary happy hour with food and beer and wine was not expecting that!! Would highly recommend to anyone passing thru. Laundry facilities were clean and a must have for traveling across the country.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view!!

We checked in late at night and were quickly and cheerfully sent to our rooms. Our rooms were clean and quiet. We had requested a downstairs room, so we didn't have a view, but that was fine. The bed was wonderful and the thermostat kept us comfortable with112 degree temps outside. There is a Kroger down the street and we enjoyed making a grocery run and using the kitchen instead of eating out. However there are ample choices in the area for eating out. We went to the Kimbell Art Museum for Sunday brunch which was delightful. It is less than a mile from the hotel and lovely.

I stayed at the Residence Inn (University Drive) in Ft. Worth for almost 2 months. The staff were always helpful and personable. The cleaning services were spot on. The nearby facilities were generally delightful including the 20 mile jogging path that ran along the river; it was 20 feet from my window.

In many ways it reminded of the East River Drive in Philadelphia.

This Residence Inn is about 2 miles from the botanical gardens, museums, and high-end stores.
If you want reservations, give yourself considerable lead time as they are often full.

Ft. Worth really exceeded my expectations.

Room Tip: Ask the desk staff. They will help you.

Great location especially if you're a runner or taking in the cultural side of Ft. Worth. The WoodShed, a bbq joint and coffee bar with abt 20beers on tap, is a few mins walk and right on the Trinity River. The rooms at this place though are old, dark and oddly laid out. The beds are not especially comfortable. It's convenient to TCU. I would likely not stay here again unless I was told to.

This is not the most elegant Residence Inn you will find- the building is older and yes, a little dark, but there are plenty of amenities: a nice workout facility, lovely pool, a great cafe/bar that was always bustling when I was there, and direct access to the river. It is also just a few minutes walk from great shopping and restaurants, and is quite close to TCU. The biggest problem with the hotel was noise from the railroad. It didn't bother me too much, but my husband had trouble sleeping. The trains are noisy. The staff was pleasant and the facilities clean.

I recently stayed at this hotel for one night and was fairly disappointed. The property is soooo old. It looks more like an apartment complex than a hotel. We reserved the 2 bedroom for 4 people. Our room was located in building 6 on the second floor, facing the river. When you walk in, the whole place is just dark and depressing. The lighting is terrible and there are very few tiny windows to allow for any natural light. There is a living space to the right and kitchen to the left. The furniture is super old and very worn and dirty, as was the carpet. The appliances in the kitchen are very old...thankfully we didn't need to use them. Just on the other side of the living space was a bedroom with a king bed, tv, desk, closet and bathroom blocked off from the living space with curtained french doors. The room was a decent size. Linens on the bed were nice, but the mattress was rather firm, and furniture, lamps and clock radio extremely outdated. Bathroom was a decent size...small vanity and tub/shower combo. The shower head was awful...teeny tiny with only 4 water spouts...when I turned on the water, the pipes were loud enough to wake the dead...I thought it was going to bust out of the wall! Again, everything was outdated in the bathroom, but I can say that at least it was clean. Towels were old and rough. The second "bedroom" is located up a flight of stairs in a loft. There was a queen bed, tv and another bathroom. Pretty much the same as the other bedroom...outdated and depressing with very loud water pipes in the shower. Every time someone got up to use the restroom or come downstairs, the floors cracked and creaked horribly! One thing I missed having was the use of an in-room safe...I think I read that there were safes at the front desk, but that's such a hassle. They should be in the room.

Should I return to the Fort Worth area in the future, I would most certainly choose another hotel to stay at. I'm pretty surprised this was a Marriott, as I've always had much better experiences at other Marriott properties. The entire property needs a seriousl remodel...or a complete rebuild!
