We were without air-conditioning in our home for several days in the midst of two weeks of 100 degree plus temperatures. Luckily, we had Marriot points to spend and were able to move into a hotel. We tried three different local Marriot properties. This was by far the best. The room was large, clean and comfortable, appointed with the business traveler in mind, but also perfect for someone looking for all the comforts of home (air-conditioning, coffee pot, refrigerator, and fast, free WiFi.) The public spaces are comfortably furnished. There are ample areas for recharging yourself or your computer. Say goodbye to looking behind and underneath the furniture for a place to plug in your laptop. There are work stations in the lobby, handy if you have already checked out but are not quite ready to leave, or perhaps for the night-owl whose roommate is already asleep.
The property is in Southwest Fort Worth. There are no tourist attractions here, unless you are a retail tourist (shopping options include Macy's, Dillard's, Sears, Target, Academy Sports, to name a few), but if you are driving through Texas on Interstate 20, this is an excellent stopping point. There are several decent enough chain restaurants nearby, along with a full service grocery store if you want to fill up your cooler for the next leg of your trip through Texas.
If you have a few days and want to see some of Fort Worth, the downtown area, the cultural district and the stockyards are all an easy 20 minute drive. Easy is not a relative term. Fort Worth is not Dallas or LA. Driving in Fort Worth really is easy if you avoid I-35 and SH 183 during rush hour. If you are considering this hotel, you are driving. Public transportation is not a practical option. There is a major freeway construction project in the area (which will be fascinating to little boys of all ages, and even to some girls!) but access to and from the hotel remains largely unobstructed.
There is plenty of parking, much of it free, near all of Fort Worth's major attractions. If you need a place to jog or ride your bike, access to the Trinity River hike/bike trail is nearby. It is not within walking distance, but it is close and there is free parking at the trail head.
We are local, and, barring loss of heat/AC in our home would probably not have occasion to stay here again. But, we would definitely recommend it to friends and family and will seek out similar Marriot properties when we travel.
