Destination Fort Worth // Where to Stay

Fort Worth is the city of cowboys and culture. It is a unique convergence of outdoor fun and fine cuisine, haute and hospitality, margaritas and museums. Whether you are looking for a vacation (or staycation) for a girls’ weekend away, a romantic getaway, or a family adventure, the hotels below will help fully immerse you into the Fort Worth experience. All you have to do is decide how you are going to explore the city (I suggest Fort Worth Bike Sharing) and where you are going to treat yourself afterwards.

Girls Weekend Away

Omni Fort Worth

The Omni Fort Worth, located on the west side of Downtown Fort Worth. With a spa, pool, rooftop bar and lounge, a cantina, two restaurants, and a wine bar, you and your girlfriends will never have to leave the hotel to have a good time! So, relax and gab away, or get out and explore downtown, West 7th, or the Cultural District.

The Worthington Renaissance Fort Worth Hotel

Nicknamed “The Star of Texas” and boasting the title of first four diamond luxury hotel in Fort Worth, the elegant Worthington Renaissance Fort Worth Hotel situated on the perimeter of Sundance Square is a perfect place for the girls to get away and play for the weekend.

Romantic Getaway 

Stockyards Hotel

The Stockyards Hotel is located in the heart of the National Historical Stockyards District. It is the perfect blend of the Old West and modern luxury, with each room uniquely and elegantly decorated in Antique Western, Native American, Mountain Man, or Victorian Decor. The Stockyards Hotel is within walking distance from some of Fort Worth’s most acclaimed dining, including Cattleman’s Steakhouse, Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, and H3 Ranch (which is conveniently located inside the hotel).

The Ashton Hotel

The Ashton Hotel is a luxury boutique hotel nestled inside two buildings on the National Registry of Historical Places, centrally located in downtown Fort Worth. The hotel’s “Romantic Jacuzzi Room” is perfect for those seeking a romantic getaway, with amenities including turn down service, custom robes, and a claw footed Jacuzzi tub. And, it’s central location is an easy stroll to grab a meal in Sundance Square or to enjoy a performance at Bass Hall.

Family-Fun Vacation

Hyatt Place – Fort Worth Historical Stockyards

The Hyatt Place Fort Worth Historical Stockyards is located in the center of the National Historical Stockyards District. Although it is a newer hotel, it has gone to great lengths to become a part of the “Old West” culture provided by Exchange Street. Go no further than the front door to watch the twice-daily cattle drive, or saunter down the street and enjoy the restaurants and shopping while the kids enjoy the life-size maze, mechanical bull, and petting zoo.

Hilton Fort Worth

For the U.S. History buff, the Hilton Fort Worth is a must-stay. Besides being an upscale hotel with a great downtown location, it also has a very unique claim to fame: the last place JFK and Jackie stayed together (you can even book Suite 1530, which is designed in remembrance of the two). Located closer to the west side of downtown, the hotel is not only a perfect for exploring Sundance Square on foot or bike, but also makes Fort Worth’s best family-friendly attractions, like the Fort Worth Zoo, Log Cabin Village, and the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens, very accessible.

Bed & Breakfasts

Etta’s Place

Etta’s Place, named after the girlfriend of the Sundance Kid, is a 10-room bed and breakfast situated in the heart of downtown, just a block down from the famous Sundance Square. Besides being in the perfect location, guests can also choose to enhance the romance of their stay via one of the bed and breakfast’s packages.

Lockheart Gables

Lockheart Gables was named the Most Romantic Bed and Breakfast in Texas by Gayot in 2011. The bed & breakfast offers five rooms inside the main mansion and two cottages and offers add-ons such as roses, chocolate covered strawberries, and massages. Located just off I-30 near the historical district, guests are in a perfect location to enjoy romantic restaurants (such as Bella Italia West and Winslow’s Wine Cafe) or museums.

Miss Molly’s Hotel

If you are looking for romance and a taste of the Old West, then Miss Molly’s Hotel is for you. It is located right off the National Historical Stockyards District, making it easy to enjoy fine western cuisine and two-stepping. But, be careful! The Bed & Breakfast is said to be haunted.

The Texas White House

The Texas White House is perfect for the travelers seeking a private retreat with access to fine dining and culture. This cozy inn is in walking distance from Magnolia Street, which houses some of the city’s best kept dining secrets. But, the morning chef is said to be so good, that you might not need to walk much further than downstairs.

Rachel loves a good fairytale, so it’s no surprise that, after moving to Fort Worth from Washington, D.C., she kissed a frog and fell in love. She is the mother of two perfect children—Lillian, an adventurous toddler, and Lucas, a handsome cuddle-bug who is speeding through infant-hood too fast. She loves pearls, books, coffee, talking about books over coffee, writing, listening to others’ life stories, and spending time with her family. When she is not busy practicing law or changing diapers, you will find her exploring the amazing culinary and cultural delights that Fort Worth has to offer or blogging at Honeycomb and Pearls.
