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.

Hotel is not prepared for large groups. Does not have the amenities expected from a Hilton. Price was still at Hilton level. If they cannot meet the expected Hilton quality, they should price accordingly

So first off normally I don't write reviews but in this instance this needed to be done. I checked into this property yesterday April 9 I'm checking out tomorrow April 11. This hotel seems to be severely understaffed. Extremely long lines to check in. With at first only one desk agent checking in and then a second one came. when we got into our room it was extremely hot even though the thermostat was set at 60. building maintenance came up checked it out it cooled down a couple of degrees but it still was not what it should've been. We had inquired about dinner options with in the hotel. We were told about the lobby restaurant which I wouldn't quite consider dinner since they only have about four or five options on the menu which were a couple of sandwiches and some salads. We ended up going to Ruth's Chris which was Excellent!!! After we left Ruths Chris we decided to go to the hotel lobby bar it was about 9:30 In the bar was full(min 60 people) and understaffed we felt so bad for the young lady(Nicki) that was working behind the bar she was trying her best to keep up. I felt so bad for her she kept apologizing for the wait and even under the pressure she continued to be so nice to everyone. but there should've been someone else there working with her. I just wanted to help her not only because she was so busy but the party of people were also trying to bring in their own beverages and she was trying to explain to them that they couldn't but no one seemed to care. I believe she finally called a manager Which I'm pretty sure he is the guy that checked us in. but he did not seem to be any help to her. it was also extremely hot in the bar the poor bartender was sweating and almost every person in the bar was complaining about the temperature and also trying to get water immediately. SHAME on this hotel for doing this to their staff. Then later we needed our car and went down there was no valet outside so we went to the front desk where there was another lady Working by her self dealing with someone on the phone And after she was done she told us she'd go get our car. Why is your desk agent leaving the desk to go and get a car out of valet absolutely unacceptable. Was there not anyone else in the hotel that could help!!! The management in this hotel needs to step back and take a look at what is going on and staff more. Then this morning we get up to go to the restaurant for breakfast and it's not a full breakfast but they could've let us know that a check in so we could've made other plans... but also once again a very long line slow moving as well. I would actually never stay here again or recommend anyone to stay at this particular Hilton. Read less

We had two rooms over the weekend for a wedding. It was super hot in both rooms and the shower did not work in one room. We all had to take turns showering in one room. My best advice is to pick another hotel chain and don’t depend on the Hilton brand from this location.

We would not recommend this hotel. Two of the three elevators are not in service so it takes for ever to get up to your rooms when there’s large crowds waiting. Rooms are not as spacious as other hotels of the same caliber at the same price and the ventilation system in the rims are absolutely subpar.

Rooms are nice and not super far from the elevator, thus not too big. Its 15 floors up so has some rooms with view. Breakfast was not included but did not partake. Would have been nice to have coffee for free or newspaper. There is no public parking nearby, so valet $$$ was the option
