Courtyard Fort Worth Downtown/Blackstone
Ranked #26 of 114 Hotels in Fort Worth
Reviewed April 24, 2006

The hotel itself is decent, the rooms are nice and if you're on the upper floors you have a nice view usually. It's a little pricey for a Courtyard, but then you are in the center of Ft. Worth and there are a lot of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance.
The thing that gets me most is that you pay about $200 a night (incl taxes) and then you have to pay them $10 to park your car in their lot regardless whether you're a guest. Add a tip for the attendant and you're starting to get into NYC range, in Ft. Worth Texas.
All in all I'll probably continue staying there as there are not a lot of great options in the area. Maybe that's why they can charge what they do.

A total embarrassment for Marriott. The lobby is shabby to say the very least. The bar has no martini glasses and water is served in plastic cups. My non-smoking room smells of smoke. And I would have a stronger signal and a faster connection to the internet if I dialed up than I have on this wireless network. A very unpleasant experience.

Stayed at the Courtyard for a Saturday night in Fort Worth to go out downtown. Received a great last minute weekend rate of $89 from Marriott so we gladly switched from the La Quinta, which was not downtown. Great location and easy valet parking ($10 daily). Very quick valet service which was surprising. Even when we checked out at 11:00 on Sunday morning only had a 5 minute wait on our car. The lobby is quite nice with a little bar and our room was extremely clean. My wife worked out in the small exercise room with a couple of treadmills, bike and a weight machine. We thought downtown Fort Worth was actually better than Dallas. Had numerous restaurants and bars within an easy walk from the hotel. If you are in your 20's or early 30's would definitely recommend 8.0's bar. Puts most Dallas bars to shame and has an awesome patio. All in all would certainly recommend the Courtyard and downtown Fort Worth for those of us who usually take weekend trips to Dallas. Great change of pace.

My wonderful girlfriend and I have stayed in some nice hotels/lodges in Texas/Oklahoma, but I have to say that this hotel is one of the best we have ever had the privilage to stay in! From checking in to checking out, the staff were superb. We had the most fantastic view of Sundance Square from our room (request a corner room on one of the higher floors facing the square. You won't regret it)! Our room was always well kept by House Keeping. The air conditioning worked like a treat too (which made a nice change)! The pool was clean & as it was in the high 90s for the entire duration of our stay, very refreshing too! The location of the hotel is perfect. Downtown Fort Worth is very pretty and atmospheric but more importantly, very safe at night! Many fab restaurants are all within walking distance from the hotel. Seriously folks, you'd be silly to stay anywhere else when in Fort Worth!

Comfortable, clean and centrally located hotel. We had a high room facing Sundance Square. The double glazed windows had trouble keeping out the weekend outdoor music from the square's night-time establishments. Polite staff and good restaurant for breakfast.

The hotel room was clean enough. And the bed was very comfortable. I had to wait a long time to be checked in, even though there was only one person ahead of me and there were two people working the desk. It seemed like they engaged in a lot of personal chit chat and one took a personal phone call before I was even aknowledged. I don't think I would choose this hotel again.

We were hesitant about staying at this hotel based on some of the reviews, but were pleasantly surprised. Because this Marriott Courtyard is in an old hotel, the lobby is nice and inviting. Based on some other reviews we asked for a room on one of the upper floors. Our room on the 11th floor was great. It looked like it had been newly remodeled. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spotless. We had a great view of the downtown. We reserved our room through Travelocity for $98 a night, plus tax, which is a good rate based on our check of the other downtown Ft. Worth Hotels. We also highly recommend the Cowgirl Hall of Fame. We will stay at this hotel again when we travel to Ft. Worth.
