“Staff is wonderful, but hotel not so much”
Reviewed July 8, 2011

The Staff and front desk people were awesome! They treated us very well. And the pool was wonderful too, very refreshing when it is so hot out!
The Hotel itself I was very disappointed in. When we checked in we were put in a room that the air condition did not work, when the temp is 102 degrees outside you need air condition. They moved us, which was perfect. The room we were moved to was so much better. Like moving from a cheap hotel to a fancy hotel. Wasn't sure why the rooms were not all the same. But at least we got moved. Then our shower quit working on us and they couldn't fix it so they gave us a key to another room, which ironically was the room we were moved out of, and we had to go to another room to take our showers. On the second to last day of our stay my son woke up and when he sat up there was a dead cockroach underneath him. Ewwwww! I hate roaches and I grossed out. The ice machine was out of order only one that worked and we had to go to that floor to get ice. The coke machine on our floor charged $1.00 for drinks, but we could go to the second floor and they were only 75 cents.
I can't stress enough though how wonderful the staff was! They were very helpful and very friendly. Maybe needs better management??? Not sure. We come every year, but won't be staying here again.

So, for my bachelorette party, a group of us girls decided to get a hotel room to be on the safe side. We found this place online, and the website looked okay so we booked it. Upon arriving, we noticed that there were blood stains all over the curtains in our room, that we had an escape window above our door, and after sleeping (tossing and turning all night in the horribly uncomfortable bed) that our entire mattress was covered in blood stains. I hope that you do not get room 500. They lock you into the hotel, and you have to ask to leave. They told us this is to prevent the prostitutes from coming in. Also in our room, were bars of soap advertising for the Human Trafficking Hotline!!!! This place was AWFUL! DO NOT STAY HERE. THE ONLY POSITIVE WAS THE LOCATION BEING IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN.

Hotel is in the perfect location; walking distance to Sundance Square. We are sure this hotel has recently been renovated. Our room was excellent! New carpet and new tile in bathroom and dressing area. Bed linens were "clean and crisp"; towels appeared to be new and all very clean. Pillows and mattress were above average for hotel room. We commented "slept better than at home". The staff was more than helpful to us. We had fahitas from the restaurant and we highly recommend you try these. We heard no loud noise at night. No complaints whatsoever!!!! Will definitely stay at Park Central Hotel when we are in Fort Worth.

The location of this hotel and the price for a room attracts a lot of people I'm sure, but since it is a dirty pithole of a place I will never return. I took an Army buddy and his wife here for a night out in downtown ftw. I knew nothing about this hotel except for location and price. I was thoroughly embarrassed when we found the accomodations to be dirty and musky. It isn't a refreshing feeling to find a roach in your room. If I owned this hotel I would take it through a major overhaul before I let people stay here. Don't make the mistake I did, stay at TownePLace Marriot if you don't want to spend $200+ for an Omni or Hilton room.

Park Central Hotel is a prime location in the heart of downtown Fort Worth. An easy walk to most attractions in the area; convention center, restaurants, shopping, movie theatre, water gardens and more. We stayed 3 nights and never got our car out of the garage! The hotel is clean, the amenities good for the price (ironing board and iron, kitchenette with fridge and microwave, and an extra bathroom-perfect for a family), and the staff friendly. If you are looking for a simple, quaint place to stay downtown Fort Worth for a value price this place is for you. We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

This is a small older motel style location, with all rooms opening to the outside, on long balconies. It has a pool and outdoor terraces, which did not get much use but looked fine. The room is furnished with older furniture and bedspread was a little tired, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

The hotel is directly across from the convention center and two short blocks from the Omni hotel. So it is very easy to stay here and go to events at the center or the attached arena.

There is a restaurant open for lunch and dinner, with two sections. One has the usual setups of tables and chairs. The other part is a tapas bar with tapas platters and sandwich platters. The hamburger was "great" according to my husband, and the Mexican tapas plate was really good. They had a variety of beers and a full bar.

The night we ate there, it was open mic night and the entertainers were local who had written songs they sang for us. It was alot of fun.

From here you could walk around the old downtown area of Ft. Worth.

This is not the place for you if you are looking for luxury. But if basic clean, safe accommodations are what you want for a much lower price than the big name places, you will find this acceptable.

On site parking for $15 per night. Business center was a desk with a good computer and printer, no charge for using either.

Stayed during the Fort Worth Art and Music festival and had a great time! Perfect location, great price and Mambo's ( their cafe/bar) had great live music every nite ( many of the performers from the festival came down and jammed). If you are looking for a place to just hang out, sit back on the open patio and take a quiet stroll down to Sundance Square for a great price this is the place for you. Excellent service and they will make you feel right at home. Two big thumbs up!!
