I live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but our church had a couples "retreat" here so I got a rare stay at a local hotel. I've long admired Fort Worth, though I don't get down there enough to downtown, but I can confidently say as a frequent traveler that if the Worthington is as good to visitors as it is to locals then you're in great shape.
The room is updated and clean and spacious. The bed tidy and comfy. About my only trivial gripe - the bedside table had a 4-plug outlet behind it - all occupied by lamp plugs. Something had to be unplugged in order to put my phone charger bedside. Otherwise everything was great. There's a Starbucks on the mezzanine/ballroom level that was handy.
The location is absolutely ideal. Walking distance to Sundance Square and crawling distance from Riscky's Bar-B-Q, Cabo Grande and Uno's Pizza - which may come in necessary depending on how you eat or drink. Room service breakfast was available, but there was no restaurant inside the hotel that we saw (frankly we never asked, but never saw any signage either), but on a Saturday morning one of the only places open around Sundance Square is Cowboy Diner, which is about a 100-yard walk from the Worthington.
My wife couldn't find her eye liner when she got to the room and the Worthington gift shop said they were currently out of it. As long as I'm leaving no stone unturned, that did cause some issues. But ... neither here nor there. Overall it was an outstanding stay.
By the way, our little retreat meeting went until 12 Noon and the hotel was nice enough to extend the checkout to 1:00 for our entire gathering - about 400 people. That was nice.
