    Priced a little steep for the size of the room ($150+), but located centrally in downtown Fort Worth. Bed -- a little soft, but Etta's is my choice when visting Fort Worth because it puts me in the heart of the downtown. Friendly staff, very secure and safe. (Actually, all the downtown area feels safe as local police patrol the area on bicycles throughout the night).

    My wife and I just got back from a night at Etta's Place for our 6th anniversary. It's within walking distance of several great dinning and entertainment spots in downtown Fort Worth. The historic building has a lot of personality and the fixtures in the rooms are antique and comfortable.

    Breakfast was delicious and relaxing. It's served on a refreshingly eclectic mix of old, miss-matched china by sweet friendly people. There is a nice common room with comfy leather chairs, warm lighting and walls full of old books.

    If you are looking for a quite escape with the option of easily taking in dinner, a show and local art, Etta's Place is a great spot. We will definitely be going back.

    For options on Sundance Square, this was great, they really are within walking distance of so many great places to dine. The rooms are spacious and the old building charm is amazing, wonderful patios and views abound here. Really a wonderful place with wonderful charm and amenities.

    What a great space!! We had the.  perfect stay. Mona and Ryan were overly accommodating.  The common areas were so cozy- courtyard, piano room, library, and kitchen.  Breakfast was delicious! Green chili eggs, peach blackberry crisp. Not drowning in cheese or smothered in sugar. Homemade and naturally TASTY! I'll be recommending Etta's to everyone going to FtW.  Oh, check out Scat's jazz lounge closeby. Former speakeasy, great music.

    I was pretty amped to stay at Etta's, especially after reading the other reviewer's experiences.  My husband and I lived in Ft. Worth for several years but never stayed downtown so when we came back to attend a wedding rehearsal dinner at Reata's right next door, it seemed like a prime opportunity, but we were extremely let down.  We got to the hotel at 7:45pm, after a minor flight delay, and despite getting their before their proposed closing time, there was no staff to help us, just a small sign that said go to an apartment building (I cannot remember the name, but the name was listed on the small sheet of paper) to pick up our keys.  I walked all the way around the block and didn't see the named apartment building, it wasn't until I asked someone who was walking into a nearby building if they knew where the place was, and they said it was through the double doors, but there was NO MARKING OR NAME ANYWHERE, very frustrating.  Also there was no mention on my confirmation email that there would be an alternate location we would need to go to get our keys - and we were given minimal direction on where to park, luckily we knew the area well enough to know where to go.  Demerit #1 and #2.  We got to our room (Ben's room) which was fine, just as pictured, actually a little bigger than I expected.  It was clean, and had a large walk in closet with robes.  Bathroom was large, fully stocked with amenities, which was nice.  There was also bottled water waiting for us, which I liked.  The bed was very comfortable, the most redeeming quality of the stay for sure.  We found the room to be quiet too, and were not bothered by any street noise.  So that was all good.  There was someone smoking what smelled like illicit drugs down the hall, so that was not cool, but luckily didn't permeate into our room.  Because we had no human contact with any staff when we checked in we had to search the room for info on what time and where breakfast was, which was provided in a tableside guide (not in our check in paper, which I found odd as well, since it is advertised as a B&B).  We got to breakfast and there were a couple muffins and coffee available, and ran into a woman who asked us if we wanted hot food, which we did.  She was nice enough, saying good morning but that was all, she didn't introduce herself, didn't talk to us at all, didn't ask us how our night was...nothing.  Very odd.  We waited about 15 minutes for our meal, which was fine, we were munching on muffins and coffee and orangejuice.  The breakfast was Mexican eggs (a sort of casserole) served cold, with a side of sausage and English muffin, with no butter or jam.  Seriously??  Cold breakfast and no condiments??  The lady disappeared and we didn't see her for more than 20 minutes - so unfortunately the couple that came in after us had to wait for a long time to get their food, infact, we finished eating and grabbed seconds on coffee and they still hadn't gotten anything yet.  We packed up and went to check out, but still no one was to be seen anywhere.  There was another small note that said to leave the keys at the front desk, so we did.  So basically we had the opposite of a B&B experience, with zero human interaction and a mediocre breakfast.  The location is great to be sure, the beds are very comfortable and the rooms are clean, so it is not a total loss, but they definitely need to work on their B&B skills and customer interaction.  To be honest though I would not bother going back, it wasn't worth the price, and wasn't worth the falsified B&B title.

    My wife and I had an event in Fort Worth this weekend. I looked at various hotels downtown and you can't beat the price of Etta's Place. We stayed in Will's Refuge. It is probably one of the smaller rooms but was perfect for us. Clean and comfortable and we never heard any noise from anywhere. This was our 2nd stay at Etta's place and its great. Close parking, free wifi, Incredible breakfast each morning and you can't beat the location. The only problem is picking what you want to do nearby. Four Day Weekend is a must. Great restaurants nearby and great bars and clubs. The only time we left downtown the entire weekend was to go to the event we planned in the first place. I could recommend this place enough.

    The location of this bed and breakfast is perfect being right in the middle of safe downtown Fort Worth. It's only a block or so away from great bars and restaurants. The room was very clean, homey, and spacious with more than needed closet space. The bathroom was very spacious and nice as well. The bed and breakfast itself was very welcoming with many accommodating features such as their library and 24 hour coffee station. The best part about Etta's Place is their breakfast. INCREDIBLE. They served french toast strata and sausage this morning. It was absolutely wonderful and service was great as well. To have all of these features for the price we paid was an unbeatable deal. We more than recommend Etta's Place.

    Stayed here for one night in 'Laura's Lounge'. I would definitely recommend staying at Etta's Place. AMAZING location in Sundance Square, friendly staff, good breakfast, spacious rooms. There were a number of very minor things in the room that warrants a bump down to 4 stars: broken mirror hinge, very dust blinds, no body wash/soap, a wet book, the bathtub coating was peeling. Still a great overall experience.

    We stayed 2 night in the abundance suite and were very happy. The parking garage is close by and easy walk. There is not a "front desk" but it's ok. The room itself is simple and cute. We got the romance package which included cider, strawberries, and massages. The massage lady was very nice and relaxing. The best thing about the hotel is the breakfast! It is so good! And the lady is so nice. The only downfall is the noise around 7 in the morning is when the streets get busier and construction starts so be prepared but it's expected. It is close to everywhere and ideal location for everything. You have to ask them to validate parking! We will be booking and recommending. Enjoy!
