The Sheraton Fort Worth Downtown hotel is undergoing a $45 million transformation to provide what they describe as a more guest-friendly experience. The renovations will include a redesigned entryway, new workspace studios, a signature restaurant-bar named West+Stone, and an all-day dining option. The hotel is across the street from the Fort Worth Convention Center, Water Gardens, and the Texas A&M University Law School and will remain open during construction.
The transformation will affect every area of the hotel and is expected to be completed in this fall. The year-long project is part of the new signature experience that Sheraton is implementing at their hotels worldwide. This extensive refurbishment project at the Sheraton Fort Worth Downtown will include a new exterior, Sheraton signage, and refreshed guest rooms. Large floor-to-ceiling windows in the lobby and the removal of walls will create a more open feeling to greet arriving guests.
The almost 30,000 square feet of conference space, including a large ballroom, will also be part of the transformation and will include new carpet, lighting, furniture, and audiovisual technology. The hotel will increase the number of suites from 25 to 37, including a luxurious 1,000-square-foot Trinity Suite.
The twin-tower hotel and its conference space will remain open due to construction taking place in phases. “We are, in essence, building a brand-new hotel,” says General Manager Damien O’Connor, who joined the hotel last year. “Our goal is to provide a first-rate experience for guests to meet, work, and relax.” The hotel is a short drive to The Stockyards, the Near Southside neighborhood, Texas Christian University, the Fort Worth Zoo, and the Colonial Country Club.
