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.

This hotel is in a great location. Close to the highway, and close to the downtown sights. The hotel staff is friendly, and the rooms are a nice size, clean and updated. There is a Starbucks in the lobby which is super convenient.

Nestled in the middle of downtown what a GREAT place. Humbling for what happened here in 1963 with Kennedy. Lots of history and the staff were wonderful. Here for a conference and what a place for a conference. Easy check in. The room was huge, like TEXAS. My room was like this. You open the door and you are greeted with a sofa area. Then the room opens up. Large bed and desk area. Western touches. The bed was soft but firm. The covers were comforting. The pillows were large but soft. The sink and shower are behind the bed and not noisy. The a/c was the only issue did not ever get as cold as the setting said but got cool enough. The room got really dark and loved it. SPECIAL Note to PAPA MIke. A fellow AF brother and a wealth of knowledge. Great advice and history facts. Just ask him your question and he will come through in flying colors. There is a memorial of Kennedy in front of the Hotel. What a great place to stay. Read less

Very good business hotel in city centre for FW. Nice hotel, which have strong reference to President Kennedy, and is very well placed downtown in FW. The hotel itself have clean rooms, and very typical rooms for an American hotel. Like it or not:) Super service. Did not have breakfast there. But there is a Starbucks in the Hotel - nice!!!

This is a nice historic hotel, the last place President John F Kennedy stayed before taking the ride downtown where our history would be changed forever. It is located next to the convention center a short walk away.

Great representatives especially one who knows our language, ASL was very benefit for the guests. Very clean hotel and right in the Centre area near to the train stations, restaurants, Cathedral, etc. a Kennedy park right the front of the hotel entrance that where our President John F Kennedy’ footsteps to the park and greeted to the public then off to Dallas at the last time his life. Very experienced with emotions. Worth awhile to visit and stay at this hotel. Read less
