“Cowboys and Steelers take over the hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

We landed a good rate via Hotwire for two nights this past weekend. Little did I realize that it was a home game in Dallas this past weekend when I booked! But we were in town for Adoption Day at the courthouse, so no choice in the date. Downtown and hotel Christmas decorations were nearly overshadowed by the colorful fan jerseys. Our room was really quite comfortably appointed and large, the bathroom enormous (everything really IS bigger in Texas). Hotel staff were lovely, most especially the housekeeper I tracked down at 4 pm, since our room had been overlooked. We were just putting our baby to bed for a nap and were content to forgo a cleaning/turndown, so she provided up with a boatload of fresh towels & an armload of the fab PeterThomasRoth toiletries. Oh, and the Heavenly bed - it lives up to its name - was recreated in a Heavenly crib (although they kept forgetting to bring it up and we had to call down)!! Our babe snuggled down and NAPPED. The location is terrific, a stroll up the street to Sundance Square (which is a big construction site), where babe had her first visit with Santa beneath the enormous town tree. The courthouse was a few blocks away, too, so we only had to move the car. About parking: at the hotel it is $15/day, so we parked at a lot close by for $5. As of 6 pm, the metered on-street parking is free, as are the weekends. Eating out with a babe can be a challenge, but we had a fantastic dinner with even better frozen margaritas at Mi Cocina, again just a stroll away from the hotel. We don't have any plans to return to Ft Worth anytime soon, but we'll definitely return to the Hilton group.

Thank you for staying with us this past weekend and for taking time to review your stay with us.
I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your comments. I am pleased that you "discovered" Downtown Fort Worth especially during the holiday season and the Football Season. We are kinda remember the first time we met Santa- at least from the pictures we were shown. Next year the location of the tree and Santa will even be better with an all new "Plaza" being created in Sundance Square. Thank you again and Happy Holidays.

I was at this hotel for a conference and this stay will be my first and last. The overall feel of the hotel is dated and dingy. My room was gross. There were stains on my carpet that several of us agreed could be blood. I was missing a closet door. The drain in my shower would not allow water to drain and I was forced to unscrew the stopper to allow the water to drain.

The food in this hotel is awful too. Breakfast in the restaurant was bland and very pricey. The conference food is the worst I've ever had, and that's saying a lot. It's no wonder that the lobby Starbucks was always busy. Despite being given breakfast at our conference o Ed half of the attendees bought breakfast at Starbucks daily.

The hotel is pretty convenient to downtown Fort Worth restaurants and nightlife.

Thank you for taking time to review your stay. I really do appreciate your comments. I apologize . The hotel will begin later next year a room "refresh" . I appreciate your comments regarding Starbucks which we operate it is a very busy store that draws many patrons from the area around the hotel as well as hotel guests. As mentioned the hotel is close to so many downtown Fort Worth atttractions- from restaurants to culture . Thank you again. Dave Fulton

We were in town for a college football game this time - I had stayed at the Hilton in February while at a trade show in the Convention Center. We had a corner room this time, wish has a very small bathroom. Service was good, room very clean. Valet parking seemed a little expensive at more than $20 a night. We enjoyed being able to walk easily to a number of restaurants and bars.

Thank you for staying with us recently while attending sites in Fort Worth as well as the Football game. The hotel as you know is close to TCU and an ideal hotel while attending or visiting Cowboy Stadium. Plus just one block from the Convention Center and so many entertainment options within walking distance. We now also have the new JFK Tribute Park in front of the hotel that just had it's Ribbon Cutting two weeks ago. We are hopeful on your next visit to Fort Worth that you will stay with us again.

Two different stays over 4 total nights. Nice location is walkable to anything in downtown and you can't get any closer to the convention center without sleep in on the steps. Nice common areas and entry. The executive lounge was fine. All the people I interacted with were great. This is an older hotel but it has been updated/upgrade over time. Unfortunately I think even those fixes are showing their age and a complete overhaul will be needed before too long. My only complaints were the $22 valet parking with no self park available (although there are other city parking options to help mitigate this). The biggest surprise was the pathetic "business center". Even basic hotels offer free printing these days without charging you $1+ a SHEET! Everything considered, I would stay here again if my first choice is full.

Thank you for staying with us twice recently and for taking time to review your experience. We are constantly improving the hotel. Just this past month we installed in room safes, recently completed new lobby furniture, new marble floor elevators and the good news in about 15 days will start to create a new business center in the lobby- with complimentary use. We also recently upgrade our Wi-Fi service as well. I am hopeful you will return soon. Thank you again.

I have stayed at this hotel many times and there are many reasons I keep coming back! This is a classic hotel with lots of charm and character. The building and lobby are beautiful with lots of open space to sit and people watch if you choose. The rooms are large and comfortable and very up to date, the beds are incredibly comfortable. The concierge lounge on the 15th floor has a great breakfast if you have access to it. The workout room is top notch with plenty of the latest equipment. The hotel staff is very professional and friendly.
Location of hotel is great as you can walk to all of downtown Ft Worth’s attractions. Be sure to have “Papa Mike” at the concierge desk help you out with recommendations for dining along with discount options, he does a great job!
I stay at many hotels for business travel and this is one of my favorite.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room as they tend to be larger.

Thank you for staying with us as often as you do and for taking time to review your experience. I really appreciate your kind words regarding our historic hotel- from the lobby, to the guest rooms to the executive lounge and our team members. As you mentioned "Papa Mike" is top notch. One new item- that should be a part of your next visit- is the new "JFK Tribute" Park that is opening this week on Nov. 8th- it includes a bronze statue of JFK, great quotes, life size pictures taken on the day he visit Fort Worth in November of 1963 and area to reflect upon those times to name a few standouts. It is right in front of the hotel where he did a speech after greeting the many folks that came to see him that day. Thank you again for staying with us.

I'm a Hilton "diamond" hhonors program member and log 100+ hotel nights per year.

This property is among the top 20 Hilton's in the USA.

The executive lounge is excellent. The history of the property is interesting. The renovations first class. I really have no complaints whatsoever.

Valet parking is $22/day, but it's a downtown property so what do you expect? Car retrieval is swift and parking is secure.

The convention center is across the street and you are very close to a new JFK memorial (across street) and a great public park (other side of convention center).

This is a solid 4 star property. Try to book room on executive level if not a hhonors gold or diamond member.

Room Tip: Try to book or upgrade to executive level for lounge access.

Large hotel with lots of open space that seems a bit lost. I arrived around 11am and the reception wasn't able to provide me a room because check-in is only after 1pm wich for such a large hotel seems a bit strange to me because there weren't that many guests around.
the room was very large with even an extra seeting area and large writing desk. There are coffee making facilities, the bathroom did not have a make-up mirror and the toiletries were jsut basic.
For dinner you have a steak restaurant but it is expensive. There is also a Starbucks in the hotel but it closes already at 5pm which I found very early. If you would like a drink at night you will have to get to the centre because there is no bar in the hotel.
The meeting rooms are decend size however the wireless internet in the meeting rooms is terrible, it constantly broke down.
The hotel is easy located to the convention centre and since the city centre is not so big everything is within walking distance.
If you have the time make sure to make a trip to Forth Worth Stock Yards. An old western town right outside the city and there is an easy shuttle bus during the weekend which stops right across the street.

Thank you for staying with us recently and for taking time to review your stay with us. I apologize if we did not have room available upon your arrival- the previous night all our rooms were occupied and guest have until 12 noon to check out. Our check in time is 3pm..I again apologize if you had to wait. The hotel has a wonderful Bar located on second floor of the hotel called Skylight Lounge- we offer beverage service, 5@5 Happy Hour with special priced appetizers as will as Bar Food Menu and full dinner menu. We just updated our Wi-Fi throughout hotel as well. Just two weeks ago the City had ribbon cutting for the New JFK Tribute directly in front of the hotel as you walk to the Convention Center. The hotel as you noted is right in the center of Downtown Fort Worth- walking distance to so many venus, restaurants, Sundance Square, Bass Hall- as the slogan goes...Cowboys and Culture. We hope you have chance to visit Fort Worth again soon. Thank you ...Dave Fulton VP and General Manager. dave.fulton@hilton.com
