The Ashton in Fort Worth, TX

Specialties

Opened in April 2001, The Ashton Hotel was meticulously restored from two historic buildings to retain much of the original architectural details and unique style, but updated to include all the modern amenities for today's discerning traveler.

The Ashton features 39 richly appointed guestrooms, including six luxurious suites; the SIX 10 GRILLE, one of the top rated restaurants in Fort Worth and a range of beautiful event space for weddings, social gatherings, and corporate functions. We are conveniently located just one block from Sundance Square and within walking distance of the Convention Center. Our entire facility is non-smoking and we are a pet-friendly hotel.

History

Established in 1915.

The two-story building -- where you'll find The Ashton Hotel's Meeting and Event rooms -- was originally built in 1890 by attorney C.V. Winfree and his partner to house their law office. It is one of only eight commercial buildings built before 1900 that remains standing today, and the restored Victorian-style façade is a significant example of pre-1900 architecture.

The White Elephant Saloon occupied The Winfree Building from 1896 to 1907. In 1908, real estate developer Winfield Scott acquired the building and it became known to locals as "The White Elephant Building".

The two buildings were connected in a 1937 remodel and from 1937 to 1989 shared a history of integrated use. The owners' vision to utilize the buildings as a hotel stemmed from the days when The Fort Worth Club occupied the building. The fourth floor of the club had sleeping rooms that could be used by Club members or their guests.

A wonderful hotel.  Room, accomadations and service were all perfect.  Wonderful and extremely comfortable bedding, beautiful room, big nice bathroom.  The best hotel I've ever stayed at.

The Ashton is a nice hotel, but I had much higher expectations, especially for it being "historic" and "luxery."

When we arrived we asked where we shold parked and were greeted by an older door man who asked, "why are you here?" Well sir, we are checking into the hotel you work at. It didn't get much better from there,

The front desk wasn't very friendly either. The room, meh. There was a water damage spot on the ceiling, ink stains on the bed, wallpaper coming up in the bathroom, hair in the bathtub and cheap toilet paper that you could see through.

We should have gone to the La Quinta, at least there we could had a complimentary breakfast and saved ourselves atleast $200.

My wife and I booked the "Summer Stay and Save" package at The Ashton for our Anniversary after I had basically made my mind up to stay at The Adolphus in Dallas. The fact that they upgraded us to a Suite to celebrate our special occasion made the decision even easier for us. The location is perfect. We walked to a fantastic dinner at Grace which is located across the street. The room has floor to ceiling windows larger than most garage doors and the bathroom is extremely nice with a very large jacuzzi tub/shower. We have heard that the hotel's restaurant, Six 10 Grille, is excellent as well however we did not get the opportunity to try it out.  

As The Ashton is located just off Sundance Square, there IS some street noise until 1ish in the a.m. but that should be expected. Upon check out, we were being charged for overnight valet parking ($17) and when I called the front desk to point out that was included with the package we purchased it was removed with no delay. We also had a fun event with the housekeeping staff when they knocked on our door while we were getting ready for dinner and when I opened the door to let them know we were "OK" right now the kind lady said "OK" back to me and then walked right in and started straightening up our room for the evening. It wasn't a big deal as we were basically ready to go and the cookies she left us were enjoyed later in the evening.

Beautiful small hotel, registered on the Historical Hotels of America, prime location near Sundance Square, this is a fantastic hotel to spend a night or a weekend!

We had our brunch the day after our wedding four years ago at the Ashton.  Our guests absolutely loved it!  I have been dreaming about the bananas foster French toast ever since that day!  Today we went back as an anniversary celebration.  The French toast had no taste at all, heavy on cream, but lacking in flavor.  The food was cold.  The service was slow, probably due to two young ladies sitting at the bar who got lots of service...  I hear the management has changed, obviously the chef has too.  Sigh.  Just shows: You can't go back in time  :-(

Great location just a block off of Sundance Square.  It is a historic hotel that has been re-done in a nice way that is nice new and clean without taking away from its historic feel but also without making it feel old (if all that makes any sense).  

I feel like sometimes historic hotels try to have old feeling furniture and stuff in the room to make sure that you don't forget that they are historic.  This hotel has nice new fixtures, and bathrooms, and free Wi-Fi, etc.  I was also impressed because the rooms were fairly roomy for a histroic hotel.

This formerly charming hotel in the heart of downtown Fort Worth has new owners, and a new "can't-be-bothered" ethos. We've stayed at the Ashton at least twice before, the first time for Christmas 2006, and we've recommended it to friends as an affordable gem: comfortable beds in contemporary but luxe rooms, warm and professional staff, a very good restaurant and bar, and not only pet-friendly, but pet enthusiastic.

This year, we booked two rooms for three nights over the Thanksgiving weekend and it was like another place - our reservation was mixed up and the staff was only mildly interested in fixing it, the ceiling in our shower featured a rusty hinge on an HVAC trap door, not all of the lights in our room worked, and the phones only worked intermittently. I mentioned the latter problem to the front desk - "I'd like to order coffee service for the room, but the phone's not working" - and got no reaction (he directed me to the bar for help, where no one was on duty). The front desk no longer greets guests as they enter and leave - faces are trained resolutely on the computer screen - and the bellman, who's stationed right inside the front door, is far more interested in his smart phone than opening the door, even when guests' hands are full.

Worse - if the restaurant hopes to attract the general public as well as its guests - the bartender had no discernible bartending experience (likely the reason the place was deserted by its discouragingly early closing time), and the one meal we had was mediocre. But I didn't get the impression that the staff didn't care so much as they were young, inexperienced, and untrained -- which means it's the owners and management who don't care. In which case they should lower the prices, and customer expectations.

If you need to stay in Forth Worth, then this is a lovely boutique hotel located in downtown. Easy access to the day/night life of Fort Worth. Very friendly staff.  The place is clean, renovated and charming.  I was here for a wedding and the food was fabulous!  It is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

Positives:
- location, service, convenience, food
Negatives
- small rooms, pricey, no fitness center, no view

Great place for an event

Located in the heart of downtown Fort Worth, the Ashton stands out for it's elegance and beauty.

This boutique hotel has been fully renovated and restored, but thankfully they retained its unique architecture.

Ladies, the bathrooms are amazing. Separate shower and tubs, huge vanities and an excellent supply of bathing products. Each room is also equipped with full, fluffy robes and slippers.

I was disappointed that my boyfriend didn't think to get a room with a dresser for our four-day stay, and an upgrade was not available. The Ashton over delivered when I called to inquire, quickly sending up two rolling carts (the kind with drawers you can find at BB&B) making sure we were able to fit everything needed. The customer service was impeccable.

The breakfast of pastries and fruit that I ordered every morning was always delivered within ten minutes and was unbelievably fresh. The coffee was strong and delicious.  

The beds were comfortable; the room was equipped with an ipod doc. I would recommend the Ashton to anyone staying in Fort Worth, it is definitely worth the price.

**This review would be for SIX 10 GRILLE**

Was here for dinner with my vendors for a meeting last Wednesday; party of 7. at about 645p.

Place was clean and inviting.  Seated by the window.  Granted it was mid week and it was probably not busy for the remainder of thenight but there was one server.  she took our orders etc but not only did our orders come out what it seemed to be 5 years later... but the rest of the night was the same.  Refills on drinks seemed forever!

Food was great though, I had the sea bass and others had the pork.. we were a simple group.  

I wouldn't personally come back as there are other locations to eat at that I would think have better attention to detail and faster service...

What a lovely hotel. It was perfect for our staycation. We had dinner at Grace across the street the first night. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was AMAZING. Out for live music the second night and it was all walking distance. Service was impeccable and they have all the little extra that you'd expect from an upscale boutique.

Stayed at The Ashton on a recent girl's trip - Highly recommend.

The room - King-sized bed in a spacious room for $360/night, including breakfast the next morning. Large suite with comfortable bed, very soft bedding and feather pillows. I enjoyed a plush robe, the in-room coffee, and the complimentary iPhone/iPod dock. Free wi-fi.

The hotel - Just gorgeous. Business center, including computer and printer. Fitness center (which I never saw).

Breakfast - $50 for two people. The eggs benedict, fruit bowl, and OJ was wonderful.

Loved the 4pm house keeping service. The bed was turned down, cookies and ice were brought in. Very nice touch!

Friendly and helpful concierge & valet ($20/night for valet).

Wanted to do Fort Worth without the touristy trappings.  Chose the Ashton Hotel for its historic designation because I really like that element.  While the hotel is elegant, clean, and quiet with a great accommodating staff, there is very little of the "historic" remaining.  The only trace of historic I could find was the elevator call button.  Guess the "historic" is hiding beneath the modern design renovations. The shell remains but the details have been all but erased.  Breakfast in the Six Ten grill was very nice, and again, service was great.  Would have given 4 stars had the atmosphere been more historically preserved.

The Ashton is quiet, quaint, and full of top quality service. The rooms are modern but retro at the same time sporting high ceilings, large window views, and adorable tiled bathrooms.  This hotel flies a bit under the radar, but has a great location right on lower Main Street. This is a true Fort Worth gem and a must try.

Do yourself a favor; next time you are in the Fort Worth area and need to stay in a hotel, stay at the Ashton.

A date night with the wife was made extra special by staying at the Ashton. After dinner down the street, we wanted to watch the second half of the Cowboys game. We went back to Ashton to sit at the bar, the tv wasn't on and there were a few people enjoying a quiet dinner. We asked the bartender (never got her name but she was great) if we could order some drinks and go sit in the lobby. She did better and told us to go sit and she would come to us for orders and serve us in the lobby. The drinks stayed full and it made for a really nice moment with some dear friends.

When we returned to the room, we had fresh cookies from the hotel service team waiting for us on our pillows.

Great experience and we will be back next time we are in the area.  The personal service makes all the difference in a world of corporate hotels.

Nice boutique hotel with modern decor and spacious rooms. They balance the mod decor with a pair of fresh, homemade looking baked chocolate chip cookies on your bed. As someone with a major chocolate chip cookie tooth this is much, much appreciated.

I've stayed here a few times and the service is typically comparable to the space. Although during one stay they actually checked me into a room that had been freshly painted. Yes, it certainly reeked as such. Low VOC paint they did not use. They first decided to try to air out the room and bring in fans before realizing blowing fumes around was not a way to actually remove the fumes. They finally moved me to another room after I complained again. Sorry, I don't want to join the hotel room death list- especially not by any misdeed on my part!

The room service portions are normal size, especially compared to everywhere else I eat in Fort Worth. Serving sizes in the area are astronomical but here, I almost felt like my veggie egg white omlette was too small. It was fine, nothing spectacular. Oatmeal is pretty tasty.

If you can, request a room with a tub. Something about the showers makes me dizzy. might be the tiles.

My husband and I stayed at the Omani Fort Worth for her birthday, with plans for the theater one night. From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel like VIP's. Noe restaurant for dinner offered fabulous food and service. The Grand Cafe for breakfast was equally delightful. It was the Omani's people and service that will keep us coming back.

We stayed in room 505 and it was spectacular. The restaurants & bars that conveniently snuggle its prime downtown location make it perfect for an upscale date night. The room was a piece of art. High ceilings towered above us in the suite and the windows peered into the downtown area; we paid the extra $19.00 a night ($219.00 total) to have a room with a view. The bathroom was very well designed with excellent tiling stepping up to the the long bathtub and back down into the heavy glass enclosed shower. Screw the chain hotels, splurge a bit & enjoy this fine one-of-a-kind boutique gem of a hotel.

A cozy boutique hotel right in the middle of downtown Ft Worth. Customer service was great, and the location worked very well. My room was not huge, but well done with a comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. Older feel, but with most modern conveniences.

Do not give these ass clowns your card information .
Went for a nice weekend with the wife and was over charged 1400. dollars.  A week before  Christmas.    
still have not got it back and keep getting  the run around  from the staff.
For the price there are a lot nicer hotels in the area that are honest and helpful.

Thanks  a lot for  fucking up my Christmas.

Might be the best hotel in DFW.  It's beautifully decorated. The food is exceptionally good- try the mascarpone omelet. The bathrooms are the highlight. Great tubs and showers. All rooms
Have excellent lightning, big windows. Comfortable beds.

I added a picture of the gym. I had a hard time finding it. It's in the basement. Now you know.

Also, restaurant is not 24/7 and hours are haphazard. Be sure to plan ahead re: food& drinks.

Finally, if you need wine, walk 5 minutes to Oliver's. Descent selection also has cheeses, fruit/veggies.
