I spent a few days last week in Fort Worth. My company booked me at the Aloft Fort Worth Downtown. The hotel is a short walk to the Fort Worth Convention Center and worked well for my needs this trip.

Anthony’s Take: The Aloft Fort Worth Downtown offers an inviting lobby with pool tables, a market, a bar, and lots of seating. My room was comfortable and I appreciated the high ceilings. Aloft is an offshoot of W Hotels and you see that in some of the hotel’s elements like the WXYZ® Bar. The hotel is modern (built in 2018) and is well located if you need to get to the convention center.

Aloft Fort Worth Booking


The room was booked on a conference rate. I was booked into 1 King Bed, Traditional Guest Room at a cost below the rates above. If you’re looking to redeem only Marriott Bonvoy® points here, redemptions cost between 20,000 and 42,000 points per night for a standard room.

Transportation to/from the Hotel

I took an Uber Comfort from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). The approximately 22-mile ride took 35 minutes and cost $87. I returned to the airport the same way, but it cost $54.

The hotel is located just a quick walk from many restaurants, stores, and the Fort Worth Convention Center.

Aloft Fort Worth Downtown Check-In


There are two desks for checking in (only one was staffed while I was there). I arrived around 9:00 PM and the agent informed me that my room was ready. The hotel was sold out, so there were no upgrades available. He offered me a choice of breakfast or 500 points as a welcome amenity. I took the points. He also asked if I would like a late checkout. I requested 3:00 PM and it was granted without hesitation.

Overall Impression: I am generally not a big fan of the Aloft brand, but this hotel worked well for my business trip. This hotel should suit you if you’re looking for a modern and reasonably priced option in downtown Fort Worth.
