The 403-room Sheraton Fort Worth Downtown, across the street from the Fort Worth Convention Center, is undergoing an extensive transformation project that will implement the brand's new signature experience.
To be completed this fall, the $45 million renovation will feature a redesigned entryway, new suites, several new workspace studios ideal for small meetings, and two new eateries — a signature restaurant-bar named West+Stone, as well as &More by Sheraton, a casual establishment with an all-day menu and assorted beverages for in-hotel dining or takeaway.
Construction will take place in phases, allowing the twin-tower hotel and its conference space to remain open with minimal impact on guests. When complete, the transformation will be evident across all areas of the property.
“We are, in essence, building a brand-new hotel,” said general manager Damien O’Connor, who joined the hotel in 2022. “Our goal is to provide a first-rate experience for guests to meet, work and relax.”
Said Robert Jameson, president and CEO of Visit Fort Worth, “We are very excited about the significant renovation project underway at the Sheraton Fort Worth and the investment in the future of the hotel and our community."
Large floor-to-ceiling windows and the removal of walls in the lobby will create a more open plan. The nearly 30,000 square feet of conference space on the second floor — including the 8,652-square-foot Magnolia Ballroom — will receive new carpeting, lighting, furniture and updated A/V.
“Paired with top-rate service and elevated food offerings, we are creating elegant and comfortable spaces that cater to conferences and meetings,” said Courtney Towson, the hotel’s director of sales and marketing.
The modernized rooms will sport platform beds, 55-inch televisions, adjustable work tables, numerous charging outlets and power sources, and much larger bathrooms. Twelve suites are being added for a total of 37 suites, and the top-floor Trinity Suite will feature a large parlor and two guest rooms with king-sized beds.
