This city map is very deceptive. Everything looks like walking distance on the map... but they are miles apart. We sure need a car here if we want to see anything at all... We here and we are ready for the Cattle Drive of Fort Worth... but first we must stop by the Culture District. Yes, Fort Worth, Live Stock Exchange capital, does have a culture …
We are not ready to leave the Austin just yet, home of the weird. We are here explore more of the noted landmarks like Zilker Park and Lady Bird Wild Flowers Center. Before going there, we must stop by the headquarter of Whole Food Market for some picnic foods. It sure is a market for the more affluent. This place sits on N. Lamar and 6th Street, …

Turn on the news and it is all talk of politics disagreeing and bringing our government to the brink of chaos. The next story is generally geared towards the " who shot who" from the day before, ( or who bombed who if its international news) than after that..

He goes from one thing to another. Oh we'll, guess that is my cross to bear for this time. I must be a glutton for punishment since I'm going to be secretary again next year!

I'm enjoying the sweet tannins of my California blend, and I can't help but question whether I've earned this, or if it is just my fate, my destiny. This is nostalgia. I'm smiling, starring at my favorite colors in the sky just melting together telling me that this was no mistake. I belong ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Worthington Hotel Fort Worth
My wife, 2 kids and I stayed at the Worthington a few weeks back as part of a spur-of-the-moment trip to Ft Worth. All-in-all it was a nice stay. The lobby was bold yet charming and the rooms were a tad above average. A little worn but well appointed. The bathroom felt like a really nice Motel-6 and not beffiting a Renaissance. (FYI, they are in the midst of renovating all of the rooms, so ask for an updated room. We had an old room but saw a display of what the new elegantly designed rooms looked like, which ended up making ours feel even shabbier.) We did face Sundance Square, the extremely charming epicenter of downtown, so we had a spectacular view that kept our 3-year-old son entertained. The service was okay, nothing exceptional. The bellman failed to help with the bags and the check-in guy and the concierge were not very chatty. We had breakfast in the upscale Greek-themed restaurant. It was very good and not too pricey, around $12. Plus, the kids ate free. The service, on the other hand, was very slow, especially for a buffet. (I just needed drink refills and the check?) The best part of this hotel is the location: in the heart of Sundance square, near tons of restaurants, charming shops and movie theatres. (We had delicious happy-hour margaritas on the rooftop patio of the neighboring Riata restaurant, highly recommended!) Once the Worthington completes their renovations and tells their staff to cheer up, this could easily be a 5-star hotel. Let's hope.
Excellent service, and thoroughly trained staff
Excellent staff! I've stayed at the Renaissance Worthington twice in the past year, for a week each time. I'm always so pleasantly surprised when I need help, information, or just make small talk. Every staff member understands customer service, and knows that the customer's problem is their problem to be solved. The rooms are stylish and tidy. The high speed internet is convenient, if a bit over-priced, and gym and pool are great. But the biggest positive impression is made by the people.
I booked a room for Valentine's Day this year for me and my boyfriend who was flying in to town. I did this on-line a month and a half in advance, and requested a King size bed, so imagine my surprise when I phoned to confirm the day before and found out they had put us in a two double beds. Even though I had confirmation from email, they would not put us in a King bed. Upon arrival, the valet loaded my luggage onto a cart, but then I ended up hauling it up to the 6th floor (boyfriend not there yet, but I did give myself a generous tip). I was disappointed to see how shabby the room was- very worn and dreary carpet and linens...
Very Very Disappointed!
I just called to make a reservation for my wedding night. My finace is in the Air Force and has just recently returned from Iraq. We wanted a nice place to stay for our wedding night before taking off on our honeymoon. Their website advertises a military discount, but when I inquired about it, they said they didn't have any rooms available. Apparently, they have a "quota" of rooms they can offer at that rate and when they run out, no dice. I don't know if they have one room or fifty, they would't say and they weren't willing to compromise. As a teacher and a serviceman who are having to pay for their own wedding, we really were excited about being able to stay there. However, after this experience I don't think I will ever stay there. :(
Took a weekend get-a-way to Fort Worth. Greeted as soon as I pulled up by valet gentlemen. They were very polite and happy to park my car for me. Check-In was made easy by the hotel Manager Regina Townshend.
Bellmen were extremely nice and room was beautiful. I mentioned to the Manager that it was my first time staying in Fort Worth and she made sure I had a room with a wonderful view of downtown!
Last weeks at the Worthington. The location is excellent (lots of great stuff to explore in Ft Worth within walking distance) The hotel is good. The price is more than the hotel is worth. Our "discounted" rate was one night at apprx $149 and the remaining nights at apprx $190 (and we have several rooms and are our corporate discount is a national discount with Marriott...the Renaissance Worthington is a Marriottproperty). The hotel was not worth $190/nt.
My son (age 5) and I went on vacation in Fort Worth and stayed here for 4 days. I received wonderful service. When we arrived, our room was not ready, and they said that it would not be ready for about 2 hours. Needless to say I was furrious! To make things right, management upgraded us to a suite on the conceigre floor. The first night, I noticed that there was not child safe locks on the sliding glass door (we were on the 10th floor, and the balcony railing was really short). I called down to the front desk, and spoke with a manager. She had someone up to my room within 10 minutes to help me figure a way to get the door child safe. It took an hour to complete, but they were wonderful the whole time. The hotel restaurant was a bit pricey, for medioacre food. But the service and atmosphere more than made up for it. On Saturday night, there was a live jazz band, and when they asked for requests, my son yelled out "Do you know Jesus Loves Me?" It got a few giggles, but the muscians were wonderful, and played it for him while he danced in the aisle... I would recommend thiis hotel to everyone!!!!
The view of Downtoen Fort Worth at night was wonderful.
The view of Downtoen Fort Worth at night was wonderful. The Worthington was clean but it was not worth it. It took forever to get an elevator. The was no hosptality, we were nickeled and dimed we could even get a cup of coffe in the lobby with out paying way more than it was worth much less complimentary as it is at Motel 6. No one on staff even acknowledged us, we were registered guests. we were not greeted. I am a Texan as is my spouse, if we were from out of state and expereinced the stay we had, they would want to leave Texas and never come back. It was worth it. We have had a nicer room w/ a jaquazzi, free breakfast, free parking, and a two room suite for less $ in the past at Best Western Inn's and suites less than 5 miles away.
We recently spent four nights at the Worthington and thought the hotel facilities and service were excellent. My husband and I took our two kids (age 17 and 5) for a long weekend, and the room was certainly spacious enough for us. We were given a room on the concierge floor, and that provided a continental breakfast; hors d'ouerves in the late afternoon and cookies and beverages at bedtime. We made use of a particularly impressive athletic club- a full set of Cybex weight machines, free weights, an aerobics room, cardio machines, a nice indoor pool and hot tub.
The Worthington is located perfectly for anyone desiring to be directly in the center of the FT Worth nightime scene. However, for approx. $200 per night (weekend rate package,) the service and condition of the hotel leaves something to be desired.
