These Two Fort Worth Hotels Highlight the City's Now and Then History

January 21, 2015 at 1:16 PM | by | ()

Hotel Texas in Fort Worth

Fort Worth is well-known for its friendly rivalry with Dallas, one that pins the country feel of the former against the modern development of the latter. But there's a ying and yang within Fort Worth itself as well. Downtown Fort Worth is developing nicely into a mini-metro, yet the Stockyards remain frozen in time, a tribute to the city's origins as a town of cowboys and cattle.

Experiencing this contrast between city and cowboy when visiting Fort Worth is a must, and your hotel selection can go a long way towards achieving this.

Downtown's old Hotel Texas is loaded with modern history, while the Stockyards Hotel takes us back to the days of cops and robbers.

Super Bowl XLV Hotels Set to Party All Weekend

February 4, 2011 at 10:30 AM | by | ()

The game may not start until Sunday night, but Dallas-Ft. Worth-area hotels have already started their Super Bowl XLV parties, with the Bud Light Hotel (aka Aloft Dallas Downtown) leading the charge. Last night, The Fray and Lifehouse played the hotel's heated party tent. Tonight, it's the Playboy party with Snoop Dogg, Warren G and Flo Rida. Saturday's show features the unlikely combination of Ke$ha and Nelly.

Elsewhere, the "Leather & Laces" party will take over the Hotel ZaZa, with next door girls Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt hosting on Saturday night. And the Embassy Suites DFW Airport North is hosting a charity event Saturday night with Carmen Electra, Bill and Giuliana Rancic and Aubrey O'Day that they're ambitiously calling "The Best Party in Texas." Seems unlikely!

Where Can You Still Find Rooms for Super Bowl XLV Hotels in Arlington?

February 2, 2011 at 11:01 AM | by | ()

Know of a hotel room open for Super Bowl? Tell us where right here.

The game is almost upon us and rooms can still be had in the Dallas-Fort Worth area at sometimes surprisingly low rates for February 6. We scanned prices this morning with our custom hotel search tool, looking at those properties as close as possible to Cowboys Stadium that still had vacancies.

The SpringHill Suites Arlington, where rooms are big enough to have your friends crash, are selling for $518.

La Quinta Dallas-Arlington North is going for $549, which is probably the most we've ever seen a La Quinta charge.

The Hawthorn Suites DFW is a shade cheaper at $509.

The Omni Fort Worth Now Open for Business (Travelers)

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 1300 Houston Street [map], Forth Worth, TX, United States, 76102
January 13, 2009 at 4:15 PM | by | ()

Contain your excitement people. Simmer down now. It's the hotel opening you've all been waiting for! No, it's not Edition Hotels. It's the Omni Hotel Forth Worth, a 614-room convention center hotel.

And as it turns out this hotel took even longer than Six Columbus to open--about ten years. The hotel opened its doors yesterday and guests will first arrive to spend the night on Saturday.

With a garden on the roof above its grand ballroom and an outdoor swimming pool on the third floor, the Omni aims to impress meeting planners with its Texas decor and upscale features. There are four restaurants on the first floor, a museum store with merchandise from the Kimbell Art Museum and a $1 million, three-story stone wall with staircases and escalators surrounding it.

But this hotel won't always be business travelers and convention-goers. The hotel just announced that the AFC football champions will stay here during the Superbowl in 2011. And here's another random fact: the hotel has more than 1,000 televisions.

Online reservations were not yet up and running for this weekend, however the hotel is offering a "Worth the Wait" package with an introductory rate of $99 a night. It's only good for Texas residents though, from Jan. 31st to February 28th on Friday or Saturday nights. Hmm...we think this "Worth the Wait" package is something other hotels (cough, Smyth, cough) should offer as well!
