Hilton Fort Worth

Fort Worth, Texas

The hotel

The Hilton Fort Worth, a registered National Historic Landmark, is the site of President John F Kennedy’s last address in November 1963 and where he and the first lady spent their last night together in room 805. An elegant architecturally important building dating from 1919, located in downtown Fort Worth just a stones throw from Sundance Square, a renovated turn of the 20th century neighbourhood and within easy walking distance of all the sites and attractions. Built when Fort Worth suddenly found itself awash with a new kind of wealth, oil money and being renowned for having “the south’s greatest lobby” the hotel possesses a refined elegance as befits its historic status. The building is classical in style and behind a beautiful old brick façade is a soaring, impressive lobby. Guest rooms are serene in their nature, with cool colour schemes, elegant furnishings, and plush bedding.

Outdated, dark rooms. Bathrooms were cramped and had a terrible layout. The front desk couldn’t find our reservations and did not offer water (it was 102*). Changed rooms due to a/c.. engineer was rude and could not fix problem. Changed room.. never was cool.

This hotel was the last address that John F Kennedy had before he was assassinated in Dallas. The hotel pays a beautiful tribute to JFK and its roots in Ft Worth. The front desk was amazingly helpful. They got us situated with some cold bottled water and extra pillows for our room. They also provided us with accurate info regarding how to tour the stockyards and gave us two separate walking maps. They are proud of their city (and rightly so) and want everyone to enjoy the stay. I loved our room. Just loved the decor. The couch was so beautiful and the textured wallcoverings looked and felt like leather. The shower was TOP NOTCH. Very spacious and great water pressure. Bed was super comfortable. We had breakfast downstairs and were extremely pleased with the choices. They had a buffet but we wanted certain things and ended up getting everything we wanted from the menu. Texas toast? Yes please! Fabulous scrambled eggs? Yes please! Home made salsa and fresh fruit? Yes please! We had a great breakfast for $14. Our waiter was named Jose and he was perfect. Read less

This was a business trip, but as enjoyable as a pleasure one. The room was nice and clean. The breakfast buffet is wonderful; they had all kinds of foods for a reasonable value. This place also has history. The hotel is the last place where JFK spent his last night of his life.

My Husband & I like to occasionally stay in Fort Worth when we have Dr.’s appt.’s etc... and just to get away. We like to try new hotels. I read the reviews for the Hilton and we decided to give it a go. I was a little hesitant because I read the rooms were dated and someone had issues with the AC. But as soon as we got there, we were greeted very promptly. And all of the concierge was so nice. We liked the hotel because of the amenities. There was a Starbuck’s and a Ruth’s Chris steakhouse that was connected. And there are so many restaurants and shops within walking distance. I didn’t think the rooms were dated at all. I think they were decorated with historic charm in mind. We did however have an issue with the AC. When we got there, it was freezing so we turned it up. But after a walk in downtown, we got back and we’re sweating. So we turned it down and the AC wouldn’t work. Only the fan was working. So I called the front desk and they told me maintenance would be at our room in 30 minutes. But after only about 5 minutes maintenance was there and he just had to do a reset. After that it worked perfectly. We had such a good time that we wished we would have stayed another night. But we plan on going back in a month or two. And I will DEFINITELY be referring the Hilton to friends! Read less

I stayed at the Hilton for a convention. Check in, and out were a breeze. The hotel lobby and the were beautiful and very inviting . The hotel has it's own restaurant as well as a Starbucks and steakhouse just outside of its lobby doors. The only downside is no swimming pool. Otherwise, it's a beautiful hotel and I would highly recommend it!!!
