The Renaissance Worthington is a contemporary 12-story building (and over 500 guest rooms) that stretches across three blocks in downtown Fort Worth. The ends of the building are shaped like stair steps, and the hotel is built right over Houston Street, so downtown traffic literally drives right through the hotel, making it the dominant focal point of Sundance Square.
The Renaissance is definitely a full-service hotel. It has several restaurants, a nice cocktail lounge, 24 hour room service, fitness center and concierge level. It is located in very cool Sundance Square, and a short walk to many other restaurants, museums, shopping and entertainment.
Our King room was nice, with a unique floor plan. All the rooms face the hallway at an angle, resulting in bedrooms and bathroom that are not square, which is a neat change. The room was spacious with a desk, large table and two chairs, and all business conveniences such as voice mail, data ports for modems, speakerphones, etc. The rooms have mini-bars if you don't want to go out. The pictures I took were from the roof of the nearby Caravan of Dreams.
The lobby has painted murals of Texas heritage themes, including cattle drives, since Fort Worth was once a huge major center for livestock.
The Renaissance Worthington Hotel is located in downtown Fort Worth. To get there from the Dallas Fort Worth International airport, take 114 West to downtown Fort Worth, and follow the signs to Sundance Square, or turn left at Houston Street and you can't miss it. Their phone number is 817-870-1000.
