A wonderful hotel that lives up to the Renaissance name.  It is situated at the north end of Sundance Square, near the courthouse.  The views are great,  The room dcor is refined and elegant.  The hotel staff is polite and on the ball.  They have a unique service here - complementary boot/shoe shining.  There is a basket for you to put your shoes in and the shoe guy picks them up and delivers them back in a short time with a nice fresh shine.  Now that is hospitality.  The restaurants are pretty typical for this caliber of hotel - good quality and high priced.  The fitness center is top notch with lots of cardio and weight machines.  They also have a rooftop pool and jacuzzi and an exercise room too.  The conference facilities are very nice.  Splurge a bit and go for the concierge floor.  There is a very nice area where breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres are served.  There is also an honor bar that is stocked with good quality beer, wine, and liquor.

My girlfriend and I have stayed at this hotel 3 times in the last 6 months (gotta love Marriott points) and each time have enjoyed our stay.  The location is great with lots of restaurants close, a comedy club (Four Day Weekend), as well as fun places to get liquored up.  To really enjoy this hotel, get the balcony rooms - very spacious and fun to have breakfast on!

I've been flopping at the Homewood Suites just outside of town for a couple of weeks and decided finally to go for the Worthington. It's a Marriott, how bad can it be?

From the outside the Worthington looks like your typical large hotel. But I have to tell you that the rooms are very well appointed. I was surprised by the quality of the bedding, carpets and drapes. It's got a bit of elegance. The lobby is extra large and spacious. It's a kind of unusual layout. Very high ceilings but it doesn't feel airy. Maybe because of the humidity.

They still charge ten bucks for wired internet as of this writing.

I was pleasantly surprised again, by the menu. Well, not the menu but the food. They had chicken skewers for like 6 bucks, but the flavor was really good. The vegetables that the sea bass sat in were extra flavorful. Big thumbs up for the food. It was one of the first times I think I paid 45 bucks for room service and I actually got a $45 meal.

The rooms are pricy, but I got a corporate rate, so at $170 it was a very good deal for me. I'd say it's a $200 room but not a $250 room.

The service is generous if not a little pesky. They called to see if I got my room service, then they called again after I finished eating to see if I enjoyed my meal. Trying a little too hard there pardner.

You're basically not missing anything in this Marriott which is nicer on the whole in style and quality of food than in your typical big city Marriotts. Good deal.

This is my second time to stay at the Worthington Hotel in Downtown Fort Worth.  Both have been for pleasure and have been pleasant stays.  The rooms are spacious and nice, with nice western decor and comfortable beds.  The bathrooms are spacious as well.  The only negative is that the rooms that face Sundace Square, although have a great view, tend to have much more street noise.  There wasn't a powerful AC fan in the room to drown out the noise, so it was difficult getting to sleep.  Other than that, there are no big setbacks to the location.  There is a bar on site, work out facilities, and a restaurant.  Expensive parking.

I would give this hotel 5 stars if it weren't for the less than attentive housekeeping staff. Over and over I have had lackluster service. From day to day, some amenities will be refilled, some trash will be removed, sometimes they fully make the bed, sometimes they refill creamers and coffee cups - my iron was broken and the new one they sent ran so hot that it burned my clothing on contact...etc.. There's not a consistency and I'm tired of calling "Delighted to Serve" to get what should have been already in my room.

I alternate between this hotel and the Embassy Suites down the street when visiting town.  I'm in Ft Worth about once a month and this establishment always pleases.  The rooms are properly sized with plenty of standard amenities.  I like the bathrooms and work space.  The place is pretty quiet and the staff is very attentive.

I haven't stayed at The Worthington, but their Thanksgiving buffets are a family tradition.  Their Thanksgiving buffet is insane!!  If you ever have the chance, I highly recommend it.  It's not just one buffet, but there are ROOMS of tables with food.  I can't begin to describe everything they have spread through the rooms, but it's an incredible experience!  It's pricey, but worth it to splurge on Thanksgiving.

When I travel I typically go for the cheapest hotel possible. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't book a hotel that looks like something out of a horror movie but my belief is a hotel is simply a place to sleep in. I'm completely uninterested in fancy rooms, excellent food, or any other over the top service. I need something within my budget that I can rest my head in. After staying at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel, my strong held belief was questioned.

Two of my dear friends were getting married in Fort Worth and this was the hotel they chose to stay at the night before and after their nuptials. Some other friends and I flew down to Texas to witness the momentous occasion and they wanted to stay there as well. Upon hearing the jawdropping price of $199 per night, I was ready to object but I didn't want to be separated from my buddies plus it was close to the wedding venue and was in a great area in downtown Fort Worth. I gave in.

Driving up to the Worthington makes you feel special. You have the very friendly valet gentlemen open your door and greet you. They did this every time we got the car and we received a nice welcome each time we came back. Of course they want to kiss your ass for tips but they played it off very convincingly. All of the hotel staff was very personable and helpful.

The lobby is huge with a waterfall, colorful carpet, plush seating. Everything an expensive hotel would have. Our room was smaller than I thought a room costing $199 a night would be but the selling point was the bed. It was about two feet off the ground, the mattress was soft and made you feel you were lying on heaven, and the comforter was thick and warm. This had become my dream bed. I was very disappointed to part with it. The room also came equipped with a flat screen television, a radio that was MP3 friendly, internet access (for a fee of course), and a mini-bar.

Aside from the bed the other amenity I fell in love with was the gym. They have cardio equipment, a weight room, free weights, a sauna, a whirlpool, and a pool. This hotel is definitely trying to get me.

While I enjoyed my stay at the Worthington, I don't know if I would stay there again. Not because of experience but because of price. I'm a bit cheap but if you are looking for a luxurious hotel and money is of no object try the Worthington.

I was repulsed by my stay here and I am an easy guy.  First, I showed up at 10:00PM and I get to my room and stinks like smoke, cigarette smoke to clarify.  I called downstairs and they said "this is not a smoking hotel," I said, "well, not everyone agrees with that."  They switched me to another room.  Ok, I could let that go, but...  It is 2011 and we live in the world of WiFi.  This hotel does not have it, per se.  You can get it if you stay on the phone for a half hour with the tech service people and they can get you on it for one day form the business meeting rooms at 14.00 per day, sort of, as long as you don't leave your room with your WiFi device because then you have to call again and then again another half hour on the phone.  I don't know if the people at The Worthington give a crap, based on my phone conversations with them, they don't, and have no plans to get hotel wide WiFi.  You can stay at other places for the same money and get PAID WiFi, heck pay less and get free WiFi.  I am a Marriott's points participant and have stayed at a lot of Marriott's and this is one I will always skip.  Everything else was ok, nothing to blow my skirt up (I am not a cross dresser, not that there's anything wrong with that).

Spent a recent weekend here with some girlfriends for a getaway, and this hotel fit our bill perfectly.  Right in the middle of downtown Ft. Worth, it was within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go.  The rate included breakfast which was really yummy.  They even treated us ladies to dessert because it was my birthday.  (No one told them - they happend to spot a gift at our table and asked).  They gave us two adjoining rooms so we could visit back and forth without bothering anyone and supplied us with extra towels because, well face it, 8 women can never have enough towels!  This will be my hotel of choice if another night in Ft. Worth is the plan.

P.S.  This review would have gotten a 5 if a demitasse size cup of coffee had been a little less than $9!

Pros: really fantastic gym, attractive decor, central location

Cons: guests are nickel and dimed - $13 for parking, $13 for internet access, $4 for bottled water - and it's hard to enjoy staying in a nice hotel when you're slammed with extra fees at every turn; also, note says to save water & energy by reusing towels (throw them on floor for change), but all were changed every day anyhow ... no recycling either ... boo

I grew up taking monster road trips with my family, ending a 16 hour day squashed in the car with two brothers to either a camp ground or my dad saying, "look, Tom Bodett kept the light on for us"  (Motel 6).  As a result, I've always had the "does it have a clean bed" philosophy, especially since I don't plan to spend any time in the room.  

But the Renaissance Worthington Hotel might just have swayed me to the other side.  There was a beautiful lobby, extremely friendly, helpful staff (thanks for the recommendations of photogenic places within walking distance!), and lovely rooms.  I'm not sure what the thread count on the sheets was, but I enjoyed sliding into the cocoon of comfort.  And the view was wonderful - the room was directly over Main Street, overlooking an early 20th century federal building.

Something tells me the lights at a certain motel chain in Fort Worth might burn out before I visit them again.

The last time I was at the Worthington prior to this visit was for a New Year's Eve party in 1995.  It was strange to be back in Cowtown for work, but the Worthington has held up well.  Still one of the nicest hotels downtown, with enormous rooms.  My room was comfortable, and everything seemed to be in brand new condition.  They have a great gym here, with all the same equipment as my gym back home, plus a hot tub and an indoor pool.  A great place to stay if you're in Fort Worth.

I stayed here last week and the place was wonderful. I had a really pleasant stay and will definitely stay here again. We stayed on the 9th floor overlooking downtown. One minor complaint was that there was some spotting on the carpet by the bed, and the bathroom was of less quality than I would have liked, but otherwise it was enjoyable.

The staff definitely makes it worth it though! Fantastic! Will definitely stay here again.

For a huge hotel catering to the convention crowd, this place has a lot going for it.  

The rooms are nice. The service is good and the amenities are high quality and plentiful.

We had a snafu with valet (45 minutes to get our car) and it was not minor but I won't let it deter my opinion.

I stayed here for three nights at a conference last weekend. It's a huge, cavernous hotel that, like many conference hotels, features rather counter-intuitively designed meeting rooms. That said, it was a great conference hotel: the hotel rooms were cozy and comfortable and really quite spacious; the hotel itself was quiet and efficient; the staff were extremely helpful. All the rooms, while difficult to locate, were exactly what we needed for our panels, presentations, receptions, and meetings. And while it was difficult to find your way from one meeting room to the next, the hotel staff posted themselves around the lobby areas and were very helpful in directing us, so that was nice.

I highly recommend this for a large conference!

I travel a lot for my job an I just this was my first visit to the Renaissance Fort Worth, the hotel it self is very nice and clean and well appointed but the service is very poor and the lack of free wifi in the room  was very disappointing. When I checked in I immediately noticed that no one was smiling. The check in experience was very similar to getting a physical at a clinic, VERY COLD AND STERILE, everyone I encountered at the hotel from the valet to the front desk seemed miserable. I was in town for business and I was going to run a marathon on Sunday so tried to explain that to the front desk person and she said "company policy is that late check out is at 1 o'clock" no conversation, no good luck on your business appointment or have fun at the marathon, it was just a update on policy. WOW, I have never been treated so poorly ever! Then when I got to me room a open the curtains to see I had a amazing view on the AC unit of the building next door, i should have expected that after the service I was given. Then the cherry on the cake was when I went to sign on to read my company emails, I noticed there was no free wifi in the room. When I called down stairs to see if there was a code or something I need to get free wifi in the room I was told "free wifi is only available in the lobby" that's no, no other solutions, no apology, thats it, just another VERY COLD AND STERILE response. I called my office to explain my problem and they said on the website that it showed free wifi was available, but I guess we should have read the fine print. My companies logistics officer greatly apologized and offered to move me to another hotel, WOW, the only good service I got that day was from my company. I told her not to bother, that I could use my personal cell phone as a wifi hotspot, but I did ask her to never book me at another Renaissance / Marriott again, I was scheduled to stay at one of Renaissance / Marriott hotels 3 more times over the next couple of months and she assured me that she would make sure that she moves me to a hotel that is more "customer focused". You really need to take a good look at the level of service you are providing your customers, of a hotel that is supposed to be "4 stars" is has "2 star" service.

My biggest grip is no wifi in the rooms--this is unacceptable these days, and this hotel needs to take care of this in order to stay competitive.

The room itself was big, comfortable, and the stay was enjoyable except for no wifi in the room.

I was in Fort Worth on business and had such a pleasant stay here. Every single staff member I encountered was so unbelievably friendly and helpful, from the  valet attendants to the front desk to the people greeting you as you walked in the door. They had ice cold water with lemon and lime slices every day in the lobby which was very much appreciated coming in from the hot Texas weather. The beds were insanely comfortable also!

I stayed here for a quick weekend trip and was pretty impressed but it did have a few things that didn't make it a 5 star for me.  There were signs that the hotel would be getting an upgrade soon and I would definitely love to see that.  The beds were comfy (bonus, they have a feather-free floor) and the room and view were nice.  We ate at the restaurant for breakfast and it was pretty decent, especially for hotel food.  The staff was kind of hit-or-miss, sometimes it was the best customer service ever or they didn't pay attention to you at all.  Also, if you're a light sleeper be prepared, you can hear damn near everything in the hallway like it's right in the room.  Despite any drawbacks, I would still stay here the next time I'm in town.

We have been staying at the Worthington for a week now. The valets are very helpful, they've been keeping our cars on the front drive as we've needed them a lot. The rest of the staff has been very attentive to our needs. I must say I've stayed at many other downtown hotels and this is by far the best one. Location is great and all the amenities are there, gym, restaurant, shop, wifi, feather down pillows and comfortable beds. We will most defiantly be back!!!

We reserved a king size standard room.  When we arrived we were told we were upgraded because my husband is a platinum elite Marriott member.  We were surprised to walk into our room that had a living room, dining room, upstairs master suite, 2 balconies (one on each floor), and a bidet.  Crazy!

There was a concert going on when we first walked in and on NYE the staff was wearing hats and they put together a candy bar for guests.  A fun place to stay with great service.  And every night there is a turndown service where they clean up your room and leave truffles on your pillows.  We will definitely stay here again!

When a King room is reserved and paid for, being placed in a double with the excuse that "we have a lot of events right now" is insulting and unacceptable.
The room itself was generic, no better than a Holiday Inn.
Common areas are nice enough and the gym is impressive, but this in no way makes up for the $25(!) valet and $14 Internet access. Completely absurd.
This particular trip was for pleasure, but we won't be sending our corporate business to Renaissance Hotels either. Good riddance.

They were nice enough to upgrade me to a suite- very nice, two rooms, balcony, two part bathroom- overall, very comfortable and well maintained. Also, very well located in the middle of Ft. Worth, with all of the restaurants and bars in walking distance. Concierge lounge food is just so-so, but at least they have one. Supposedly the steak house in the hotel is good, but I didn't try it. Overall, much better than the Sheraton Ft. Worth Hotel & Spa.

super clean, fancy hotels.
it's one of those places that provide fruit flavored ice water in the lobby.
i came here for free for a conference and felt blessed.
this place is amazing and id comes here again if i could afford it.

one thing though, you have to pay for the shows on the tv so it's sort of like the mini bar. approach with caution.

I think we picked a damn good hotel for a girl's weekend in Fort Worth.  The hotel is quite huge.  Our room was on the 7th floor and had a semi-decent view of Sundance Square, and we were right across the street from many bars and restaurants.

We didn't really stay in the room other to sleep and have breakfast, but the room was quite spacious with a few seating options.  The beds were kind of small, but super cozy.

The room was priced well, they have valet, and it was super easy getting off and on I-30.  Props Fort Worth!

Extremely comfortable accommodations I felt like I was a guest in a private home. I never wanted for anything. Since I am new to town I wanted to learn all I could about Fort Worth and the staff made a point of making me feel welcome and informed about the area.

After spending a week and a half here:

- I thought the rooms were pretty spacious than expected. I had a double-bed room  and found there was more than enough room for me and my big luggage. I loved the bench, additional chair and ottoman which I didn't take advantage of since I was so busy with work. The beds were high and pretty comfortable. Not that anyone would spend time inside a hotel room for long periods of time, but they have quite selection of TV channels (AMC, F/X, and lots of ESPN) that most hotels don't normally have.

- I like the fact there is a mini-Starbucks coffee bar thing and a gift shop inside the hotel (Mezzanine level). I ran out of toothpaste and was able to get another tube of toothpaste from the gift store. The coffee bar saves some time when it's raining out and/or you need a quick fix. It's open from 6 AM through 2 PM and only serves a fraction of drinks than a regular Starbucks (i.e. no frappacinos here). If you really need a Starbucks, there's one about a block and a half away from hotel.

- The hotel bar is also on the mezzanine level. It can get crowded, especially when there's a wedding at the hotel (and this seems to be popular with weddings). They have the friendliest bartenders - must be that southern hospitality. Try the upside pineapple cake martini, if you like sweet cocktails.

- I thought it was pretty convenient to most of downtown Ft. Worth's restaurants and local bars, and even a Barnes & Noble. The only down side is it's a short drive to the nearest  Walgreens and Target.

- It's a bit a drive from DFW airport. I would definitely leave earlier than you would think.

- Another reviewer mentioned noise. Yes, you can hear people in the hallway and when your next door neighbor enters/exits his/her room as if it was in your own room. It sucks if you're a light sleeper.

- I didn't try it, but I hear there is a decent gym in the hotel.

- I wouldn't pass this hotel up if I had to come back, which hopefully isn't for awhile. No offense, Texas, but I'm done with work travel for now.

Good location. Not the cleanest room, open bottle of water on floor, broken item and a bit of garbage under the bed. I requested a King bed on the website I got a double room, handicap accessible, which has an annoying bench in the shower. In room dining closes at 11pm.

This hotel was clearly designed with conventions in mind, and yes, I did stay here for a convention. (You can usually tell if a hotel is designed more for conventions by the lack of free coffee, LOL.) That doesn't mean you can't have an enjoyable experience here for personal travel or otherwise - just realize that sometimes conventions garner their own rates and perks.

BE AWARE: This hotel has an unusually small number of rooms with king beds, something like 20%.  They will do your best to give you one, but they cannot always guarantee one.

The place is huge - tons of meeting rooms, big and small, with plenty of lobby and mezzanine space for socializing, relaxing, etc. Besides standard, comfortable, rooms, there are many unusual suites. Some have balconies, some are multi-level. There is a restricted-access "concierge floor."  The fitness center is quite good.  That said, it does feel to me that some parts of the room design and decor are more show than form. For example, the closets and bathroom walls are at angles. It looks nice, but try walking to the bathroom in the dark!   The bathroom sink counter is deco, with fancy edges AWAY from the wall. Again, it looks nice, but it's very easy to drop things behind it onto the floor. There was no dresser in my room. The TV was on a multimedia cabinet with 3 smaller drawers.  The bed was extremely comfortable. Temperature control was quite good, but the air vent blew over the bed.

Food and drink options within the hotel are limited. There is Vidalia's restaurant, a starbucks, and snacks at various concessions. But there are many, many restaurants either across the street or within walking distance.

This hotel is cool, but overpriced. No fridge in the room, not much counter space in the bathroom, and no real place to eat the super delicious room service. The steak is delicious, but watch out for all the extra room service charges. For 2 entrees, it added $20 onto my bill for the delivery. Very comfy beds and pillows. I don't think I'd come back to this hotel for my next visit, but I would go to the restaurant, Magnolia's.

A very nice, upscale hotel near Sundance Square. Here for a convention, I was impressed.

The room was quite nice, as should be expected. I particularly like all the sitting areas. One day, we went hunting for cool places to hang out, and they are everywhere.

A real highlight is the Mezzanine bar... A great place for a quiet drink and good conversation.

My only complaints are my usual complaints about "upscale" hotels. No in room coffee. No free breakfast. Charge for parking. Charge for internet. Charge charge charge. It's sad that you could pay this much for a room, and still get charged for something they give away free at McDonalds (and dang near everywhere else.)

All in all, 4 solid stars.

A few months ago my parents were in a horrific auto accident leaving my mother seriously injured.  We knew fixing a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner w/ all the trimmings would be a challenge for her to abstain from, so we recommended going to the Worthington this year since we'd heard so many good things about it in the past, however, it appears the Worthington has seen better days.

If we had known how down hill things at the Worthington have become, we would have made other arrangements.

The Décor:
The décor appears seriously tired and dated. The carpet looks like something from a Las Vegas casino with cheap tables covered in typical white banquet linens and upholstered banquet chairs stained and scratched from being stacked and moved from one too many events.

This icon of a hotel has seen better days. Use to be the Worthington was the place to stay back in the day ... this obviously does not appear to be the case based on what we saw.

We entered into this huge banquet room which looked like we were crashing some cheap wedding reception.  We were seated in the back of this large boring box with high ceilings and no windows.  There were cheap light displays on the walls which weren't even in focus and were blurred.  

The Service:
Even though we made reservations for 12 people a month in advance and were on time, we waited 20 minutes to be seated which is a long time to keep a 4, 8 and 10 year old entertained, as well as, a 2 month old asleep with the noise volume as loud as it was.  

The Hostess stand was a chaotic mess and appeared completely disorganized with three sometimes four woman flipping though papers, no one speaking English or providing us with a status as to when we'd be seated.

When our table finally was ready the woman who lead us to our table, who appeared to be the head hostess, did not appear professional in appearance whatsoever.  She was dressed in an outfit which looked like it was 2 sizes too small that she picked up at a second hand store.

When we finally were seated at the back of the room it took us 10 minutes to get the attention of one of the wait staff to just bring ice water to the table and take our drink order.  

The wait staff barely spoke English and they really didn't appear interested in making themselves useful.  They seemed to be happy standing against the walls visiting with each other than doing any real work.

As we were being seated someone dropped a large plate of food in front of us and a member of the wait staff who just stood there and stared at the splattered food on the floor that blocked our path to our table.  We all just stood there for a moment and stared at the floor wondering if the staff were going clean up this mess or if we would have to - finally they come over and cleaned the floor next to where we were seating.

Epic fail all around where service is concerned.  

What was also interesting was one of the chefs working the carving stations, kept coming over to our table and telling us jokes and making small talk w/ our family while we were trying to visit and enjoy our Thanksgiving dinner.  That was a first.  While the man was very nice and enjoyable, the interaction was somewhat odd.

The Food:
The food was good, seems most of our family enjoyed the Prime Rib.  The selection of food was nice and well prepared and everyone seemed to enjoy what they had.

That being said, the buffet arrangement was something that appeared to be stuck in the 70's.  There wasn't much in the way of presentation like we've seen in with other Holiday buffets at large hotels.  It was average at best. What more the plates in the buffet line were dirty.  

Over all, considering we spent $45 per person on a Thanksgiving Dinner for 12 people, we were very disappointed in the overall experience.

What was also puzzling was the lack of effort the folks attending the dinner put into their appearance at what's supposed to be an up-scale venue.  Our family put effort into our appearance by dressing up for the occasion.  The men wore  dress shirts with coats and ties.  The woman wore dresses and heels.  However, many of the people we saw eating appeared to have just rolled out of bed like they were at home, sporting blue jeans/pajama bottoms and flannel hunting shirts from the Wal-Mart collection ... the whole scene was very disappointing, especially when we had such high expectations.

This is not service becoming of a 4-Star hotel, but something we would have expect of a 2-3 Star hotel such as a Motel 6.  

If this is the best the Worthington can do, then they really have seriously lowered their standards over the years. Next time my family suggests going out to eat for Thanksgiving Dinner - we'll recommend some place other than the Worthington.

This hotel is stunning. Beautiful lobby, excellent customer service, large rooms. I stayed here for a week for a conference, and this hotel is definitely made for large conferences and meetings. There are a couple different large ballrooms and multiple bars and food areas. If you're staying here for a conference or symposium, you're in a great spot! If you're staying here for a personal trip, you might want to think about going somewhere else. Wifi is $15 a day (gasp!) and there is no breakfast included. The walls are pretty thin and I could hear any commotion in the hallway all night.
The hotel is in a great spot downtown so there is plenty to do in the evenings; I was able to find a new awesome spot to eat every day.

Excellent service at this hotel. I stayed here for a week for work and was impressed the whole time. I had one issue in my room with the shower head. When I called the front desk, they not only replaced the shower head completely but they also left a basket of fresh fruit and drinks (waters, juice) in my room for the inconvenience.

The hotel took care of all of our meals for breakfast and lunch for the week and I was highly impressed with their food. However, I felt just the opposite about the banquet dinner they served. We were served a salad with only 1 dressing choice (something uncommon) and they could not bring out a substitute other than a heavy ranch. The main dish was half chicken and half steak. The steak was terrible and tasted like chicken. Not even worth eating. There were some great potatoes with the dinner but not very much (4 or 5 bites) and a few carrots. The dessert was pretty good, but usually anything chocolate is.

I work by the worthington so I'm familiar with it. I noticed dirt and yellow tinted water coming from the faucet in one of the main bathrooms. That's disgusting. People wash and drink out of those, obviously right? So you'd think it would be kind of important. I notified the front desk and was given the business card of the supervisor. The # was no longer in service. Since I washed and drank out of it i was pretty concerned so i asked to be contacted by someone letting me know what they found. I never got a call. I went back and personally showed the guy at the front desk the yellow black specked water. He was very suprised. Still no word from supervisor. I went back days later and told the bartender upstairs. He was the only one that acted really concerned but I still never heard back from anyone.  A few days later I ran into the general manager, the one guy who should care about this. He humored me like he might be concerned but by the end of the conversion he just smugged me off.  I talked to an employee who works there and she confirmed that the hotel mgmt treats their employees equally as bad.  
I hope this review helps you in your decision on whether or not you want to enable this type of company to continue its practices the way they do.
Thx

I am fortunate to stay in many hotels around the globe. The Worthington Renaissance Fort Worth Hotel makes up the best of them. I arrived slightly jet-lagged to be checked in by the excellent Bob. The check-in was extremely busy but they had a dedicated HHonors area where I received immediate and courteous treatment. I was also upgraded to a junior suite because of my Diamond status. Wilson helped me with my luggage and along with Mary at the concierge desk, looked after my every whim during my stay and could not have been more helpful.The Worthington Renaissance Fort Worth Hotel nice.

First time here and I gotta say this place lives up to the price you pay. EVERYONE staffed here is very kind and the dinner here is out of this world. If Texas de Brazil and Del Frisco had a baby, it would be the food here haha. I ordered the Valentines bundle which included dinner for two, valet parking, and one night stay in a king suite on club level with a later (2pm) check out time. You do pay a premium price  but once you settle in you'll quickly see why.
My ONLY complaint is a bit embarrassing. My suite included a nice balcony with a couple of reclined chairs but after laying on one for a bit the fabric ripped :(. I reported it in the morning and was told they would take care of it but I'm really hoping they don't charge me out the wazoo :/.
I did enjoy my stay despite the unfortunate chair incident. If you're looking for a special place for a special someone with a fun day/night planned out, this is where you would want to stay. As said before, yes it's a premium price but completely worth it. My significant other was very pleased and that's all that matters to me :).

Very friendly front desk clerk asked if I wanted access to the club floor for $30 extra. I thought it would be nice to get a glass of wine and some hors d'oevres before dinner so I said yes. $300 room, add $30. Come to find out wine is not included in the $30 club floor charge. You pay extra for alcohol, even wine and beer, on the club floor!  I've never seen that before on a hotel club floor, very annoying. $12.50 charge for WiFi. Even the fitness center is an extra charge. Feeling nickel and dimed to death. Not classy.

Room is nice. Comfy beds with nice comforters. Bathroom a bit dated. Can hear the tv from across the hall.

Ok but not worth all the extra charges.

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. I stayed here (and attended a conference here) and was absolutely blown away by the quality of service and attentiveness. Staff was always there for any questions I had, and even went above and beyond to give me an umbrella on a rainy day. The gym is also phenomenal and is one of the nicest gyms I've been to (definitely the best hotel gym I've seen)! Hot tub, pool, a ton of weight machines, cardio machines, ab balls, free weights, etc. I highly recommend this hotel. Aside from the amazing rooms and facilities, it also has a great location!

Mostly good but lacking in several areas; asked for a daily paper to be delivered, was told yes, but never received. Was told someone was stealing them? No HBO here! Loud parties going on late Saturday. The staff while kind and courteous, seem to have forgotten some of the basics like; how do we keep clients coming back.  

My Marriott points have yet to post to my account, perhaps they are associated with the same department that delivers papers.

I'll not make a point of staying here again.

We were recommended the Worthington and now I see why. We were met with friendly smiles and warm hellos everywhere we went inside the hotel. The front desk was pleasant and helpful. We were treated like old friends in the lounge upstairs by Cody, who greeted us as soon as we walked in and got our favorite cocktails started. The room was comfortable and very quiet. We will only stay here whenever we visit Fort Worth, truly a great experience.

This hotel has seen better days. Let me break it down...

Room Reservations: I called the reservation hotline to inquire about rooms because the normal website I use ( Hotels.com ) was giving me the option of 1 King or 2 Doubles. That was all the reservation hotline could guarantee me, as well. But, she told me I'd likely get the King bed desired if I got there by 3:00 PM as that is the normal check-in time.

Fast forward to check in and we got two double beds. No Kings. The lady offered to send up some ice cream (for my wife) and a beer (for me) to make up for our troubles. It was a very sweet gesture that would have been even sweeter had she followed through and actually send up the items.

The rooms are fine. The beds are comfortable. The t.v. works intermittently - we found it only came on when the bathroom light was on.

If you go on a busy weekend, be ready to drive nails through your eyeballs when dealing with the valet. It looks like the NJ Turnpike.

I think I'll take a look at some of those boutique hotels popping up across Fort Worth...or stay closer to TCU at one of the cheap options next time around. Cabs to and from combined with the cheaper hotel works just as well.

Reserved king size.  Arrived and they tried to give us double beds.  She was very rude.  When we told her we reserved a king size she responded with "well it doesn't matter, we don't have any.  Then she was trying to charge us 40.00 more dollars for the crappier hotel room.  So we left

I was confused about where to get a carriage. I stood outside for about one minute total before someone came and asked if I needed help. The nice guy taking care of luggage told me where to catch the carriage, that the carriages, only take cash, and even told me that there was an atm in the hotel lobby if I needed one :)

I was happy.

Horse carriages are available in front of the Worthington after about 6 pm to 11 pm on Fri and Sat nights. Some of the carriages have reservations but many do not.

I have to say this was one of my biggest disappointments of 2014. This hotel charges around $300 a night but should charge around $75 a night.

The first room I had smelled like cigarettes. It was awful. My husband and I changed rooms only to get a room that had dirty glasses, no robes and a shower drain that was totally clogged.

We used the valet service which was the most mismanaged valet I have ever experienced. The hotel was not busy but the valet would take over 10- 15 minutes to get your car and then you would sit in bumper to bumper traffic in the carport because no one was managing/directing traffic. This actually made me late to the rehearsal and the wedding of my brother. Thanks Worthington.

I tried to get ice on 6 floors and all machines would not work.The glasses that were in my room were dirty. When I called "At your service" I had to call 7 times before anyone would pick up the phone. I explained that the ice machines didn't work and my glasses were dirty. It took 45 minutes before someone showed up and all they had was a bucket of ice with no glasses.

When I called down to complain about the drain, they said that someone would fix it. I told them I would be leaving the room within the next hour and a half and to please send someone while I am gone. Someone showed up within 10 minutes and I had to send them away.

Every day I had to call at night to ask for the room to be cleaned because it would never be cleaned even though I would leave starting at 9:30/10am everyday and would come back until around 5/6.

If this wasn't bad enough, I called, again,  to the lovely "At your service" button- After another 6 calls, I was told that the hotel was very sorry about our troubles and they would comp our internet charges. However, come time for checkout, these charges, of course, were on our bill. Once again, I had to wait and get a manager to take these off.

Stay here if you want to overpay and wait for just about everything. I have traveled all over the country and have never experienced a hotel so mismanaged. Oh, and this is the one and only hotel that will not offer you coffee in the morning, instead, they will charge you to go to the Starbucks on the third floor. If you wanting coffee or tea in your room, good luck. I opened the box and there were two empty bags of tea and one coffee pouch. I would save your money and spend it at just about any other hotel. Thanks for making my brother's wedding that much more unpleasant.

We WILL be back!

The bf and I took a wkend getaway, spending fri & sat night's at this beautiful property.

I scout hotels based on walk ability & nearby restaurants/shopping/nightlife : and WOW, exiting the front of this building and walking across the street to Sundance Square?!? SCORE!! We ate, and drank, and shopped to our hearts' delights.

I'll review those places separately, but in regards to this Marriot: two thumbs up, way up.

I've been a Marriott Rewards member for 4 years, staying at their numerous chains in the Marriot family : and of all the properties I've laid my head down at at night, all over North America, I give these guys huge Kudos!

Every staff member we encountered (front desk, concierge, room service, hotel restaurant, valet stewards): they were ALL so pleasant, and not just to be cordial - but because they seemed to genuinely enjoy their job, and interacting with us. We felt like appreciated guests, from the moment they took our car keys, to bringing up a fridge and bottle opener to the room (TGIF wine for me, beer for my Mister!), delighting us with our ordered breakfast to the room Saturday morning , the omelette chef charming us with humor at the Sunday morn brunch buffet, and the concierge gladly holding our luggage for us after we checked out but still wanted to walk the neighborhood.

That stellar customer service, topped off with notable cleanliness, AND Aveda products/toiletries in the bathroom, combined with walk ability: well yes, yes I WILL spend less than $200/night (triple A rate, folks!) to stay here again.

The Marriot family just skyrocketed up a few levels in my books, all because of this property.

I stayed here after a Yelp event a few weeks ago and loved it. The room was beautiful. I had a great view of downtown. The bed was super plush and comfy. You can request extra pillows and build yourself a fort! Jk. Maybe. The lobby has a little water station that had the most refreshing pineapple infused water available. There's a bar on the second floor that is open and allows you to people watch everyone checking in and out. The location of the hotel is right near Sundance Square, so you can walk to great bars and restaurants. I really enjoyed my stay.

I stayed on the concierge level and saved having to go out to both dinner and breakfast- the selections were hot (oatmeal, scrambled eggs, sausage,)

If you have 25 people paying for your really overpriced drinks why would you do last call at 11:30? Not to mention why is your bar staff cleaning and doing inventory before close? Another 30 mins of business would pay for all your labor. It's Just bad business to shut while people are still in the bar.

We stayed here this weekend and I have pretty mixed emotions about it.

The Good:
Check-in went smoothly and the staff told us about things that were nearby we should check out.
The bar-The bartender forgot what we had ordered and gave us a free round.  I ordered a pillow talk and it was very interesting and very good!
Starbucks-No line and fast service
Great Location

The Mediocre-
The room-Not bad but not the best I've ever stayed
Concierge Level-Apparently we were booked on concierge level so we had to put our key into the elevator to get it to stop on our floor and there was a lobby and kitchen area right when you exit the elevator but no one told me when you could take advantage of whatever they served there.  I guess I could have asked but who has time for that!

The Bad:
Valet-They parked my car overnight and left the lights on and killed the battery.  So as a result we had to wait an hour for them to get my car running again and then some young valet guy had the nerve to tell me that I should go have my battery checked to make sure it wasn't bad.  This experience was the first time in a long time that made me want to say the F-word multiple times in public.  To make matters worse the purpose of the trip was for me to go buy a new car and trade in that car which I was now worried wouldn't start again once I turned it off.  My husband and I ended up going to the auto parts store to buy a battery charger in case that happened.  Then we had to ask them to remove the $25 valet charge from our bill.  They did remove the charge but I'm still bitter.

Came for a yelp event and I must say I was blown away by the service I received from every employee at the hotel. Our checking with Jessica went very smoothly and i received great service from Valet to housekeeping, each staff member was courteous and friendly, and made you feel that everything you asked for or needed to know was important to them too. I was greeted by every staff member I passed in the hall or lobby and was welcomed with a smile during each visit to the front desk. The room was clean and beautiful. I would come back again!

Absolutely gorgeous hotel! Their Sunday brunch, especially around Christmas time is superb and something you may want to make a tradition. I've been many times. Bring family and enjoy all of the decorations during the holidays! I also had the honor of attending a lovely Yelp event out on the terrace. We were treated like kings and queens by the hotel staff! It's without a doubt worth staying here especially since it's in the heart of downtown and near all of the wonderful venues around Sundance Square. Highly recommended.

Very very nice hotel.
Very clean and with a great bar on the 2nd floor (not too expensive either for hotel bars).
Their centralized location on downtown Ft Worth is perfectly located for nearby restaurants, clubs, shopping and nightlife.
The best, being a Marriott shop, are fantastic.  Soft and mushy but with enough firmness.   They provided plenty of pillows as well which was awesome.
The only negative remark would be the lack of a refrigerator in the rooms.

We didn't get a chance to try the pool but will the next time we stay and there Will be a next time.  
Great place for a weekend-getaway or a short staycation.

This is  a hard review to write. I had a really mixed experience here.

I made reservations online about two months before my stay through the "official" lodging service for a moderately large conference. I requested a king bed then (and that's my preference on my profile with Marriott.) When i checked in after a three hour drive, I was told I'd have a room with two double beds (and was asked if that was all right.) I mentioned to the desk clerk that I'd requested a king. She checked, and validated that I actually knew what kind of room I had requested. She said there were no kings available, that they'd likely been booked by people who had made reservations before me.

Originally when I booked my room for this conference, I'd booked at the Omni, which was the primary hotel for the conference, being right across the street from the FW Convention Center (and which is a *fine* hotel; I've stayed there multiple times before.) I changed my room to the Worthington, as I'm a pretty loyal Marriott customer (and in the first [bottom] tier of their "elite" membership program due to stay frequency.) The desk clerk fiddled with her computer a bit and upgraded me to a room on a club floor (with access to the "club" room with munchies and a bar in the evening and free breakfast in the morining.) Still two double beds, but a nice gesture and one I genuinely appreciate.

The room itself was nice. Pretty roomy, decent view of a slide of downtown. Long walk from the elevator, but also therefore removed from elevator noise. I didn't notice until my shower the next morning, but there was no bath mat in the bathroom, so I created a nice puddle on the floor when I exited the shower.

When housekeeping serviced the room that day while I was at the conference, they provided a bathmat, and had it on the floor in its normal deployment position. That's good. Moreover, perhaps they thought I should undertake some of my own housecleaning, since they left me a toilet brush on the bathroom counter, right next to my nicely laid out toiletries and toothbrush. Ugh. Time for a new toothbrush....

The tub/shower combination is a little older; I prefer a standalone shower. On the other hand, there was great water pressure and I could take a fine shower. A lot of newer Renaissance properties have those fancy rain shower heads that look great but are pretty much impossible to use to take a good shower.

Let's talk about elevators. There are four cars, but the wait for them in the lobby was incredible. The hotel wasn't slammed with people, but by the time an elevator car showed up, the elevator lobby was backed up with people waiting. On one trip down the elevator, with my hands full of bags and carrying cases I was carrying to my conference, i got rammed by the luggage cart pushed by an associate. When we reached the lobby, he made me get out before he did, though I was pinned between his cart and the back of the elevator car. Come, on...

Club room was nice, apart from being completely out of leaded coffee on Monday morning. Not a good way to start my day. On Wednesday, they were out of sleeves for coffee cups, out of napkins, and out of glasses for juice. The place was far from full of people - quite a few open tables - how do you run out of basics like that? Do you not notice you're starting to run low?

Marriott's usually have really comfy beds and pillows. Not here. The bed seems older and way too soft (and probably never gets rotated.) Too many small pillows. I've awakened every morning with a sore back and sore neck.

Vidalia's restaurant is quite good (see my review.) I valet parked because I had a lot of crap to carry out of my car; Almost $30 a day for that, and I never took the car out in the five days I stayed there. Yikes.

Not specific to this property, but perhaps my biggest gripe with Marriott's higher end properties is the $12.95/day or more for internet access. Come on, guys, you're not Spirit Airlines nickel and diming customers for things that really should be included in the base price. So - whatever rate you might get for this hotel, if you drive, you're going to be paying another $25-30 a night to park, and if you use the internet, another $13 or more for that. Stay at a Courtyard, Fairfield, or Springhill, and those things are included in your room rate. I don't get it.

I was very disappointed with my entire stay at the Renaissance, it is really so far the worst Marriott-Affiliated hotels I've ever experienced. The quality of service and the incompetency of staff members were beyond imaginable at this 4-star rated hotel.

I checked into a King-size bedroom and was told the room was ready by the front desk. However, 4 hours later, when I went out of the hotel to get some fresh air, and came back 15 minutes later, I found two staff members in my room and the bed was stripped out of blanket. One staff member was talking in foreign language on the phone while the other staff member was somehow in a panic mode. I asked what's going on and they ignored to answer me. So I waited for the lady to get off phone and she used broken English to tell me that somebody thought the sheet was dirty but it was a mistake. Then these two staff members picked up the sheets AND PILLOWS that were THROWN ON THE FLOOR and remade my bed with the SAME SHEETS. So, was my bedroom ready and CLEAN at the first place? Or was the sheet dirty and they didn't change it? If it was dirty, why they did not change a new sheet and put on the "old"one on the bed in front of me? I delivered those questions to relevant hotel personnel but I did not receive any answer in regards to these questions.While they made the bed with the old sheets, they were speaking their home-country language that I really had no clue what they were saying, but it was obvious that they were scared, and guilty. They never bothered replacing the $4.50 bottled water after I particularly requested to the service desk to replace it, and now this $4.50 water is showing in my charge that I only had less than half of the bottle before these same staff invaded my privacy and threw my water away.

When I walked out of my room, I could hear the cleaning crew were in the hall way and one of them whom later on showed up in my room, was standing in the hall way. As I walked along the hallway, she entered a hotel room and right after I walked past the room she entered, she came out of the room and went to a different room. Her behavior in the hall way as well as her reaction in my room was utterly, suspicious.

The horrific experience is not over yet. The next day, I put the "A little Privacy" sign on my door and called the service desk around 3pm to have the cleaning staff coming in and clean my room. I left the room and came back later in the evening, NOBODY came to clean my room and NOTHING WAS REPLACED. But INTERESTINGLY, the third morning at 10:30am, I had my "A LITTLE PRIVACY"door sign hung at the door again, the cleaning staff knocked the door, TWICE. Is there any professionalism left in this place?

As I was departing this hotel, walking out of my room, there was one cleaning staff in the hallway. For no apparent reason, she gave me a nasty, dirty look. The accumulated piles of unpleasantness finally trumped me to complain at the front desk check out.

So this was my experience at the Renaissance in downtown Fort Worth, a "crown joule"4-star hotel that was built by the Bass family back in the days. It is utterly a SHAME how this rude and unprofessional service erodes the beautiful old-styled luxurious furnishing and dilutes the elegant, classy presence of the Marriott brand. For customers who can tolerate these incompetency and suck up to unprofessional behaviors while paying 200 or 300 dollars each night and not afraid of shadiness, feel free to join this location. I have to say, the last blonde-haired manager that I spoke with, was probably the best employees of this entire hotel. She showed some integrity and handled my situation with proper measure at the end. But again, the entire experience was rather horrific than pleasant. Unless this hotel gets rid of the slackers that are sucking up their paychecks, I would never consider staying at this hotel again.

Stayed here for a conference.  Our room was beautiful with a stunning view of downtown.  It was on the 11th floor and the walls seemed to be pretty thick as we didn't hear any noise from other rooms.  The thermostat didn't seem to work as we had it on 60 and it felt stuffy and the fan was barely audible so forget about any white noise in the room.  The bathroom was tasteful but there was no fan which is puzzling and troubling.  Housekeeping didn't replenish soap/shampoo so we had to get it at the front desk.  There was a pouch in the room asking to tip your housekeeper which was a first and IMO tacky.  The elevators are a mess.  The layout of the lobby and the mezzanine are confusing with minimal signage.  The front desk and lobby employees all seemed helpful and pleasant.  Cheaper parking is available nearby.  The location is terrific.

Not very impressed with this "high" scale hotel.. If you want to get lost trying to find the elevator in a hotel or finding how to get to the parking from inside the hotel...well you will not be disappointed!!! I felt like I walked 10 miles looking for things.

Rooms were ok.

The Worthington Hotel is your best bet if you want to be in the middle of the FW action.
If you are on Vacation, this hotel is right in the middle of all the attractions that Fort Worth has to offer. Walking distance to the Bass Performance Hall and Sundance Square.
This is also a great choice if you are a local who is out and about and had a little too much to drink ;)

The hotel has an amazing view of downtown, and it's surrounded by  great bars and restaurants.
The staff is super friendly and everyone has a service oriented attitude. They want to make sure you have a great time.

The rooms are beautiful and clean, the bar is nice and laid back, great to just have a drink and a conversation if you want to get away from the fuzz of the other bars in that area.

Thank you so much to the Worthington Staff for your hospitality!

As soon as I walked into my room, I felt like a baller. I belly flopped onto my comfortable king sized bed, hopped up, opened the curtain and was in awe of my view. I looked out into the Trinity Trails and the court building. I turned up some music, danced into my fancy bathroom, fully stocked with toilet paper, Aquafresh toothpaste, and Aveda hair and body products. I had plenty of towels and a little thing of hand scrub. The bed was sooo comfy and the sheets were very, very clean.

The staff is also very friendly - the valet people took care of me, the people in the lobby made sure someone was taking care of me, and they're all very professional.

I've come here twice so far - both for events. It's so beautiful inside. I love the fountains in the entrance and the view from the bar above. I really felt cool being in here!

I would highly recommend it here for events or for pleasure. There's so much more to do around downtown and it's great being able to walk to everything.

The coolest thing had to be the elevators to me. First, there's always one waiting for you on the first floor. Second, they're super fast!!!

I have no complaints about this place. None. I was in town for a conference and this was the conference hotel.

1. I used the mobile app to check in.
2. I get there and they greeted me at the door. I gave them my name, and they said "Ms. C, we have been expecting you!"
3. I was able to check in at 11:49 a.m. YASSSS.
4. I got to my room, and perhaps because it is Texas, the room was really big. And yes, it was a normal King size bed room. SCORE! I walked in and thought, "holy crap, this room is huge!" And it is not just a little square room - mine had some shape to it.

5. The toiletries are Aveda. I HEART. Aveda. I really do. So, I am always happy to stay at a hotel that uses their products. Sadly, I didn't see any housekeeping carts to raid, or I would be even happier - ha.

6. Did I mention the room is huge?
7. The bed - a little firm for me, but it was great for my back. Also, the pellows were ohhh sooo flufffyyyy... I also adore fluffy pellows. And yes, PELLOWS.

8. Check-out was super easy. Used the mobile app to check out, and voila, I was done! Left my card-key on the nightstand and was outtie.

9. It is right next to Sundance Square, which has a Starbucks (a must for me), some little shops, and lots of food

10. Thank you, Worthington, for another great experience.

I grew up in Fort Worth and I remember when this hotel was the Americana and I did a report in High School about the hotel industry in Fort Worth. It was grand then and it to me it still is today.

The past few years my mom has a staycation at the Worthington the week of the 4th of July. The rest of the family always goes down because the suite she stays in is luxurious with plenty of room and a great view of the city from the balcony and an even better view from the bedroom and living area of the 4th fireworks. We normally just hang out visiting all day and the next. The location is perfect and with all the changes downtown there's great shops and restaurants in walking distance, but the food at the Worthington is excellent. Whether you choose room service or the Vidalia's you won't be disappointed. This year we actually stayed in the room next door and it was lovely. We had the same awesome view of the fireworks. The beds were so comfortable I hated to get up. The staff was really nice and helpful. Wi-Fi is included depending on your room type we didn't have to pay and it was fast and about 10 people between 2 rooms enjoyed it without any lag time, lol.

I love the Worthington and I'm looking forward to staying the next 4th of July.  The Worthington is just a great place to hang out.  The lobby is comfortable and inviting.  We noticed there were at least 3 weddings receptions that were taking place that Saturday and I have been to one and the service and the banquet room was really nice.

Whenever some one ask a recommendation for for a Fort Worth hotel this is always where I advise.  It's in the center, the  service and price is worth it to me. I probably won't stay here again until next 4th of July but Vidalia's is a new favorite spot and that floating bar, yes a great place to relax, chill and take in the scenery.

Great room, with a king sized bed.  Valet parking is $25 but was included in our deal.  When we arrived, valet was ready and quick.  When we claimed the car, it was equally speedy.

We entered the very beautiful lobby and were immediately greeted and were able to check in right at the counter by the door.  We only had one bag, so off we went.

We were attending a function in the Presidential Suite on the 11th floor and they coordinated it so well that everyone who was attending and staying the night was on the same floor.  Very nice, considering it was a pajama party and I was prancing around in my new jammies and slippers!

Our room had a decent view of the city, a well stocked bathroom complete with toothpaste!  Nice touch.

They were able to accommodate my request for a late check-out, so we left at 1pm.

Now, the Presidential Suite....it's two floors, complete with multiple killer bathrooms, a soaking tub, a separate huge shower and two balconies.  At this party, a bartender and service staff were supplied, and they kept the food and drinks coming.  They had adult-type drinks modeled in the slumber party theme, such as the adult milkshake (with Baileys) and the Pillow Talk, which was a vodka martini looking drink.  I stuck to beer and never had an empty!

The views were amazing from both balconies and if you are looking for a place to host a seriously upscale important party, I would highly suggest you check this out!

This is a fantastic hotel in a prime location in Downtown Fort Worth. Probably the best location you could ask for! It gives you direct walking access to so many fab places, namely the new square and all the sweet restaurants that border it, like Bird Cafe and Del Frisco's!

The Worthington Renaissance gets extra points for being in the best spot ever, but the venue itself is fantastic on it's own. Like... You should go hang out there whether or not you're spending the night! They've got a really nice floating bar on the second floor with some creative cocktail specials, not just your run of the mill wells. Plus, it's a cozy and dimly lit atmosphere that makes you feel all swanky and classy. Pretty good prices for a bar within a nice hotel as well.

My room was spacious, sparkling clean, and very comfortable. I like my hotel rooms freezing cold, and I love when the air conditioner works well and fast! I bumped the air to 65 and was happy happy happy when the temperature dropped quickly. Luckily, I had a beautiful view of downtown through the giant wall-to-wall windows in my room. You should definitely request a view of downtown if you book here!

The bathroom was super clean as well and had extra toothpaste, woohoo!! My only issue with my room was that my bed frame (or mattress?) was pretty loud and squeaky whenever I rolled over or moved around. The bed, pillows, and comforter were all great and cozy, but the squeakiness did bother me a bit. Of course, I'm the lightest sleeper on the planet, so I wouldn't worry too much about that.

Every single employee I interacted with at this hotel was the nicest person ever. From the valet drivers to the check-in desk to room service to the bartenders... Everyone was extremely friendly, attentive, and seemed genuinely happy to help. It was refreshing and relaxing to converse with so many awesome employees. It's a seriously great staff they've got!

I don't stay at hotels in Fort Worth very often since I live so close, but the Worthington Renaissance has much more to offer in addition to great rooms. I'll be back for their bar, and I'm excited to try out their restaurant, Vidalias. Amazing spot whether you're looking for somewhere to spend the night or somewhere to relax with a cocktail.

My favorite downtown hotel by far- I would take the Worthington over Omni any day!

I few years ago I attended a conference at this hotel- all the service was impeccable. When you have 800 people in your facility and you can flawlessly coordinate breaks, snacks and rearrangimg rooms for three days straight without any obvious mishaps, its pretty impressive. I didn't get to stay in a room that time- but I was pleased none the less.

The most recent experience was for an Elite event- again the organization and efficiency of the staff was  next to none. I did get to actually stay this time and I'm confident in saying that if I need a room downtown it will be here.

I pulled up feeling lovely- got off work early to party like a boss with the yelp crew- and the Valets pranced up to the car and helped me out with some old school manners- grabbed my hand and held the door. I walked in and was cheerfully greeted by a peppy young blond who promptly checked me in and reminded me I requested extra pillows and a high floor.

The room was phenomenal- I walked in, cranked the AC as cold as it would go- did my signature flying a squirrel move onto the bed that already had my extra pillows on it and rolled around. The bed was that perfect median between plush amd firm and the sheets smelled like they were line dried.

The room itself was spacious and they use Aveda products- my favorite. The view was amazing. I had a downtown view- the windows spans the length of the room and I was right in front of Reata.  

I would highly recommend staying here!

This would normally be a five star review but one incident changed that.

I loved the room. It was quiet, bed was comfy, good water pressure, etc. I had to ask for a robe because they don't keep one in the room. But no big deal. The location is also perfect. Lots of food nearby, but the restaurant in the hotel is decent too.

I was staying here to take the Bar exam at the convention center. On the second day, on my lunch break, I came back to my room to get some allergy meds. The door wouldn't open. I went downstairs and got a new key. Back upstairs...still no dice. The receptionist gave me a third key and said they'd send engineering up. The person who came up couldn't resolve the problem himself and he had to call security. I had about 10 minutes left before I had to be back at the convention center and I was about to leave when security FINALLY got the room open. It was some kind of internal battery issue. Everyone was cordial and apologetic. All's well that ends well...but I shudder to think what could have happened if I'd come back to get something more important than allergy medicine from the room, or if security had arrived 2 minutes later.

Overall, I think this is a nice hotel. But for what I paid, I don't think I deserved the added stress and worry of not being able to get into my room in the middle of an 8-hour testing day.

What I hoped would be a 5 Star stay at a 4 star hotel is a 2 star stay because, and only because, the front desk manager is good at her job.

THE VALET IS THE WORST I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. ANYWHERE.

-- DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT PARK A CAR HERE --

There are several other garages you can park your car free all weekend (after 5pm Friday) within walking distance of the hotel. I will not describe in detail the 8 HORRIBLE ENCOUNTERS my party and I had with the valet staff. Upon my arrive and turning my car over to the valet staff I asked how far in advance I should call for my car, I was told 10-15 minutes. The average wait time for a car throughout the duration of my stay was 40 minutes, which is ON TOP of the 10 minute head start. I will simply say the valet alone will stop me from ever staying at this hotel again if I have need of a car.

There was a mix up with my reservations, which was made through their customer service 5 months prior to our stay. I was informed I was in a cretin kind of room at check in, I informed the front desk person checking me in that was incorrect. He left to go "figure it out", when he returned he informed me he was mistaken and the room was as I requested. When I got up to said room it was NOT. I had to call the front desk and wait on hold for 15 minutes to then be told "That is the room you were booked into", but they would figure it out and I was moved. The new room that was correct was wonderful, had a great view and was well furnished. I did have to have maintenance come in because the phone did not work, requiring me to walk half way up the long hall in the event I needed anything, including my car.

After one of the wretchedly horrible experiences with the valet, which I already mentioned I won't go into detail about, the front desk manager sent up several bottles of champagne to my suite for our party. Which was a nice gesture, however I am allergic to champagne and none of the other people in my party drink. So it did nothing to alleviate the tension or upset feelings I had about the situation. Several days after our stay as a Platinum Elite member with Marriott I was invited to complete a survey about our experience. After which I received an email from the director of event planning apologizing for our experience with the valet. Which while appreciated was no incentive whatsoever to attempt to stay at this hotel again. I expect far more from a Category 6 Marriott hotel when a Category 1 will comp a full night's stay if you are not satisfied with your experience.

As I already stated I wanted this to be a 5 star stay and if it weren't for the valet it would have been 4 stars hands down as 90% of our problems were created and stemmed from their incompetence which unfortunately greatly affected our stay. Enjoy your stay, just don't park your car.

This is what happens when a fantastic hotel gets too full of itself... what should have been 5 STARS, ends up with only 2.  Things go wrong and we get it. How you respond is the experience I remember.  And I remember 2 STARS.

(The lady at the front desk earned a bonus star).

First, skip the $45.00/ night parking fee.  There's a free garage all weekend (after 5pm Friday) one block away.  My group (around 30 people, 8 cars) never waited for a car less than 30 minutes.  If you use the valet, you better call early... and still be prepared to be late.  No extra charge for being rude to you, but you are still expected to tip.

I particularly liked being put on hold for 15 minutes when I called down from my room to talk to the front desk!

As a guest of the hotel, multiple year Marriott Platinum Elite with over 1M points, I have seen a few Marriott's.  This one let me down.  I booked myself, my fiancée', my entire family (arriving from different states), her entire family here because we LOVE Marriott.  

However, after the way we were treated I won't be staying here again.

We were invited to complete a survey about our experience. After which we received an email from the director.   While he apologized for our experience, there was no atonement.  Even the most basic Courtyard will throw 10,000 points for a bad cup of soup or a burger.  I expect far more from Flagship Marriott experience.

I booked here for my wedding expecting a 4-5 Star Stay.  I left saddened and disappointed!

You can't beat the location here. The rooms are spacious, tidy, a little fusty, but I actually like that with a Renaissance, which are known for their historic character.

We had a charming view of downtown. You can also easily reach any of the area's famous BBQ joints (definitely check out Angelo's), Billy Bob's honky tonk (the largest in the world) and the cattle drive stockyard.

The staff were wonderful here, too, and we had an excellent, comfortable stay. I would easily recommend this hotel or stay there again even without my pet.
