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.

Usually, when a 25th birthday is in order, there is no talk about a make-over or a face-lift. At least, we hope not. But when it came to celebrating their 25th anniversary, The Hilton in Brisbane has gone all out to spruce themselves up.

Overall, the property is in a great location and has seen heaps of people come and go. Including the Aussie celeb set, socialites and locals alike. With all of these visitors, the hotel started to look a little run-down and was in need of a major modernization. And that's just what Hilton did to the tune of $37 million.

Remember that DoubleTree cookie tour we told you about in May? Since kicking off in New York, the dessert truck has made its way across nineteen states in the country, and today, they roll into downtown Colorado Springs, CO. We figured you could use a little pick-me-up to get you through the end of the week. And free cookies definitely have that uplifting quality to them!

For those who live in the area, prepare to get your cookie around 2:30pm this afternoon. The CAREavan will show up at the corner of Tejon St and Colorado Ave, about five miles north of the DoubleTree by Hilton Colorado Springs. Everyone is entitled to a free cookie—no singing or Cookie Man dancing necessary. Cookies will be available until 5:30pm, at which point you should go find yourself a proper meal.
