“Perfect for a base”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Stayed for 2 nights at the start of a tour of Texas. Hotel was perfect to use as a base. Rooms clean and friendly staff. Breakfast the usual buffet affair, would recommend the warm cinnamon rolls but avoid the orange juice which just tasted like orange coloured water.

Would recommend eating at Riscky's BBQ in Forth Worth, great value.

Stayed September 2012, traveled solo

We stayed at this hotel on a visit to the Dallas area to go to the cowyboys game. If you are going for a game, I would stay in Arlington. While the hotel says it is in downtown, it is not in walking distance to the main downtown area. The rooms were clean -- nothing fancy -- but very loud. You could hear all of the hotel noise and lots of sirens outside. Breakfast was not very good and the lady said the pancake maker was not working. The main reason I rated this hotel poor was we had a sick kid and I reported it to the front desk. The first thing the girl said was "we are going to have to assess a cleaning few to your room." Not -- is your kid ok? Or is there any way we can help? Less than impressed!

great rooms, friendly staff, very good shuttle service. This is one of the best holiday inns i have stayed in. Good location. Room and bathroom very clean and well appointed. We were directed to some good restaurants/bars in the evenings.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour of Texas and Lousiana.

It was an excellent place to stay with comfortable rooms, large bed and clean quality bedding and big fluffy towels. There were superb touches like cookies and coffee provided free of charge and also a big drum of refreshing fresh lemonade – all free.

The free toiletries were lovely and there was an excellent hairdryer, a microwave and a fridge.

I really enjoyed my stay here and the sleep quality was excellent.
The air conditioning was slightly noisy and if only we could have opened a window for FRESH AIR it would have been far better!

The lifts were slightly slow in a morning when they were moving large numbers of cases out from tour groups.

Breakfast is complimentary and although a bit ‘junky’ there was quite a lot of choice: waffles, omelettes, pastries, scones, porridge, toast – but all on plastic throwaway plates with plastic knives and forks.

The main problem for us (I have a slight walking disability) was the location. It most certainly is NOT ‘downtown’ – it is a mile or so away from Downtown Fort Worth. The Hilton would have been better located for us. The Holiday Inn do, to their credit, run a free shuttle service within a 3 mile radius which includes the Stockyards (great fun place to visit) but if they are busy you have to wait and that is not really great in the middle of Fort Worth.

There was a statue of JFK being unveiled while we were there – 49 years after he spent his last night on earth in the Fort Worth Hilton!

There’s a great bookstore in central Fort Worth, well worth a visit for browsing and with free nice restrooms.

There is no evening restaurant at the Holiday Inn and we ate one night at Razzoos in central Fort Worth and the second night at Rissky’s BBQ in the Stockyards which was the cheapest and possibly best meal we had all holiday all in all!

I would recommend the hotel for absolutely everything except the location but if you enjoy a brisk walk then it is fine. The little extra touches made it a great place to stay.

Stayed here with 4 other couples of friends during the Red Stegall Cowboy Gathering at the Stockyards. We experienced excellent service from the time we were promptly picked up at the train station on Fri untill returned to train on Sun. afternoon. Terri and John the shuttle drivers were especially helpful and friendly, more like tour guides and available at our beckoned call all weekend ! Check in was fast and hassle free although we were 2 hours early ,thanks to the professionalism shown by Andrea and staff. Rooms were clean, modern and bed was comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was tasteful, plentiful and menu varied each day. Not within walking distance to anything, but with the excellent shuttle service, even to the stockyards, this hotel served us well !

Don' let the address of this hotel fool you, it is not downtown but about a mile away from downtown. It is therefore not for those who wish to walk out of the front door to visit the nightlife or restaurants. However on the plus side the hotel does provide a complimentary shuttle service within a three mile radius. This is on a first come first serve basis and when busy it can mean a wait. If you are arriving at the railway station call the hotel and they will pick you up. It will save a15 dollar fare. One night the shuttle was so busy the hotel booked and paid for a taxi for us, which was an exceptionally kind thing to do.

There are many positives about the hotel for example free wifi, free parking, good buffet breakfast, small fitness room and pool, free evening coffee and cookies. The room we had on an upper floor was good and comfortable with an enormous bed. The only down side was noisy air conditioning.

So all in all it suited our purpose, and although we would probably stay in one of the true downtown locations in the future it had many good qualities to make up for its position.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor away from traffic noise
