Rated 3 out of 5 by Angus Rooms need improvement
Rooms need improvement and when you bring it to the attention of the staff still nothing is done...We stayed at the same hotel two years ago and the same problems existed and gave a list to the girls when I checked out as well as yesterday and most still existed...They are doing the go green and give you points if you go with it...you need to give it up and clean the rooms,make sure enough fresh linens and glasses in the room...I don't reuse glasses or linens at home so why would I do it paying $200.00 a night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sdarbee Noisy Toilet and Request Not Met
The room was very nice, except for the noisy toilet. It was probably the loudest toilet I have ever heard and did not flush adequately. We reported it but never heard a response about our request. When we checked out, the reception desk told us it was because it was a low flow toilet. I am not so sure I buy that in that the toilet paper never did flush adequately.
Also, a minor request for an additional coffee (not decal) was not provided. The room had 1 caffeinated and 1 decaf and two people were in the room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MWD1945 Not up to Sheraton Standards
On arrival my room had been booked to someone else - in my name - and it took 25 minutes to fix it -- so I could get to a meeting half an hour late.
Three phone calls were necessary to get two light bulbs changed.
Renting a PG-13 movie required permission from the front desk (a good idea), which nobody knew how to do so I just went to bed.
Front desk told me the Shuttle was $55.00, and I bumped into Yellow Checker by the curb, who charges $18.00.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jones3285 Great room for the price
Not exactly sure why all the earlier negative reviews. Was a little hesitant to stay here for that reason but glad my wife and I did. Everyone was extremely helpful from the moment we checked in. Complimentary shuttle because of the location to Sundance was quick. Starbucks made a mistake on my wife's coffee and the hotel ran another to the room within 5 minutes. No train noise in the south tower although my friend reported a little in the north. It was as quality a stay as I have had in a Starwood property.

Staff was stellar!!!! The young Asian [please forgive, I left the card with his name in the hotel room!] was a doll, and Jamie was helpful, cheerful and knowledgeable.
Only complaints: the beds are rock hard [maybe a pillow top could soften?] and the toilet sounds like an atomic bomb going off and yet it did a poor job, had to be flushed twice. Then it stuck and had to be 'jiggled' to stop it from running.

Numerous problems with my room and little responsiveness from hotel staff. Dirty tub, broken and missing fixtures/amenities, 5pm maid service, etc. I asked to speak with manager. No response.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jennifer38501 Great for the price
Everything was great except for the restaurant. This is the second time I've used the restaurant in this hotel and have had the exact same experience both times. I was with a convention that sold out the hotel yet the restaurant wasn't prepared at all. Very, very bad service. Had to ask after waiting 20 minutes for someone to take drink orders. Once our order was placed for very easy stuff (hamburger, BLT) it took 40-45 minutes to get the food. Other than that, I had a great experience at the hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MrOctober Club experience
I have never upgraded to a club room only to find out there is nor beer or wine served in the club lounge except for on Mon - Thurs. The weekend is when people want to relax, watch sports, get out of their room and have a beer or wine in the lounge. Very disappointed and annoyed with this seemingly new policy from the hotel management. I would not stay here again for that reason alone.

Rated 1 out of 5 Never Stay here!!!!
Don't let the name fool you, the Sheraton Forth Worth Hotel and Spa is the last place you would ever want to stay! The hotel is in disrepair once you get past the common areas. My air conditioner clanged all night until I decided I needed sleep worse than being cool and turned it off. The toilet would not flush. There was yuck in the grout joints in the bathroom. Wallpaper was peeling. Electrical outlets were crooked. On and on! Sheraton should be ashamed to have their name on this property!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TCUVisitor2015 Good place to stay in Fort Worth - beware of parking
Hotel is very clean and modern. Rooms are nice and they now have coffee in all rooms. Employees are friendly. Club lounge is a nice getaway but nothing spectacular. Beware of weekend wedding and organization events as they haven't figured out valet parking here. Can take 20 minutes to get your car if you leave at the wrong time. Not very close to Sundance Square and walk isn't very safe at night. In Hotel restaurant has nice bar for adults and restaurant for breakfast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RR79 Cowtown race hotel
This was the main hotel associated with the cowtown marathon. The staff did a nice job of having coffee and fruit available the morning of the race which was very nice. I do have a criticism of the noise level in the rooms, however. I was in room 966 which was next to the elevator. The elevator was not loud but people walking to and from the elevator were quite loud in the hallway - and they were just talking. It would be beneficial for the rooms to have better noise control, in my opinion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CharityBallGuest Disappointed.......
Booked my reservation 2 months ahead of arrival for room with King bed, but upon arrival, was given a handicap access room with 2 queen beds. Was told hotel was full and no other rooms available. How do you manage inventory and promise one thing, yet not have it available as reserved. Shower rod also fell in bathroom and the maintenance "worker" who came could not speak English, and put up a bent shower rod so low, I had to limbo under it. Greatly disappointed after several past nice stays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UncleBill Access problem
My stay was for a conference, dealing with a medical issue that causes problems with walking (GBS/CIDP symposium). In general, things were fine. However, I chose to do self-parking, which was in the back lot. I was very disappointed that the back entrance was not handicapped-accessible. It required me to go all the way around to the front of the building, which was not pleasant. I am sure having one front handicapped entrance meets legal requirements, but I was disappointed in this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jdub68 They don't respond quickly to needs
The AC did not work. Upon check-in, I informed the front desk that the room was hot. They said that is normal, turn the AC down and it will cool off... this is Texas and it's hot. I turned the AC to 68, left for Dinner Meeting and to watch NBA finals. When I returned at 11:30, the room was slightly cooler, but still reading 76 degrees. I tried to sleep through the night, but it was not happening. At checkout I informed them and they said they would add SPG points. THEY DID NOT! When I called to find out what was going on, it was pass the buck time. I spoke to 3 different people and never the person with an answer. They took down my number? Really? Just fix it. Service here was a joke. Oh, to top it off, after a poor nights sleep I was ready to iron my business shirt, but there was no ironing board in the room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bigjack Death by a thousand cuts
There were several small problems that added up to a less than acceptable stay. There were only a couple of sheets of kleenex, and a little left on the TP roll, and no back-up for either. Next morning, no washcloths. We had an adjoining room that we had to place a towel at the bottom to keep the sound out. When we commented to the front desk about the items in the room, the answer was " that's not my department, but I will pass it on", rather than, "I'm sorry, we will fix that."

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jethrine84 First and Last Sheraton Experience!
This was my very first time staying at a Sheraton and based on this experience will certainly be my last. Our LARGE group comes to town every year and they know well in advance we're coming (our company books a HUGE block in all Fort Worth hotels#. They ran out of towels one night. When we called in the morning it took an hour to get them to our room #I went downstairs after 20 minutes#. It took multiple calls to get a lightbulb replaced. Lipstick on the comforter #ew)! Stood in line for a total of 2.5 hours to resolve issues. Then they charged my card a random extra amount! Called to get it resolved and was told I would get a call the next day....nothing. Called again, got a voicemail. Several others in our large group had similar terrible experiences. I have stayed at cheap motels and had far better experiences!!!!!

My wife and I had a great weekend planned and this was the only SPG hotel downtown in Fort Worth. We though we upgraded to the corner suite, and did, but it was only a suite in size. The furniture was rough, the sheets were clean but nor cozy, the a/c didnt work well, and the ice machine on the "Club Level" floor did not work. We went to a nice dinner and called the hotel shuttle to pick us up and it took more than 45 minutes (mind you the hotel was less than a mile away). There was a fire hazard in the room with extension cords run all over because most of the outlets did not work. The food in the club level lounge was not something i would pay for, thankfully it was included in the room charge. I would stay here again if it were a free night. I was sufficiently dissatisfied compared to other SPG hotels in Austin, Houston, even College Station... Come on guys!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cathy1214 Needs to be renovated. Room was terrible.
I was at this hotel when it first opened. It was beautiful. Now, it's run down. Lamp shade in the room was cracked. The carpet was worn and there was a nasty wet spot.
Until there is a complete renovation, I would not recommend this hotel - especially not at a $159 rate. I would expect to pay perhaps $49.95 for the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RachelJ Amazing service!!
Our room was beautiful. We had the romance package. They brought champagne and strawberries, and put rose petals on the bed. The only problem we had was with the coffee. There wasnt nearly enough creamer in the room and when I asked downstairs she said she didnt have any. But the starbucks coffee bar made up for it...although we had to purchase that coffee. The room service (breakfast) was delicious. The view from our room was amazing too. Overall a fantastic experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LotsofTravel Staff was Friendly
We arrived at this hotel after 9pm and was a little confused at the entrance. When the parking attendent came out (Jay) he was so nice and helpful and did not even mind that we came in the wrong way. Checking in was quick and effecient. The woman on duty (wish I would have remembered her name!) was extremely friendly and got my collegue and I our rooms quickly which we were appreciative of since it had been a long day of travel. I would recommend this hotel to others.

the convenience to the train system is an asset for those of us who often use Amtrak.
Room was spotless and comfortable. Great view of trainyards, if interested, but NO sound of trains. Staff was helpful and eager to help.
The club lounge attendant Lucy in the a.m. is a definite asset to the hotel. The Club lounge
provides a relaxing and filling oasis to those who avail themselves. Overall, definitely a positive experience. Will return.

Great location. Big wide open spaces. Fabulous view from room #954. I could not give it a better rating because with outdoor temperatures of 41-64 my room was NEVER warmer than 64 degrees.
The hotel is well staffed and deals professionally with multi generational families.

Convenience to Ft. Worth Convention Center was great with a nice walk through the Water Gardens. Maids set the thermostat to 66 every time they cleaned-way too cold. There were a few things in the room coming apart. Food at restaurant was outstanding. Would have liked a refrigerator. Bed was too soft.

This hotel needs updating! The hallways are in need of painting. In my room, the safe did not work, the bathroom sink was slow to drain, upholstered furniture was stained, wood furniture was scratched, no public television on the cable stations, and my room keys did not work twice. Although I was staying here for a meeting, I would choose another hotel next time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by grandma2 Pleasant staff
The hotel staff was extremely friendly. They were always willing to help. That said, the room was not wonderful. The carpet was badly stained, toilet paper holder kept tilting down which caused the roll to fall on the floor, tub faucet leaked. It was comfortable enough but needed some TLC. I put the "go green" sign on my door. When I checked out did not receive my "reward" coupon for any of the days the sign was on the door. Which was 5 days. Somehow I think this is just so they don't have to clean. When I did take the sign off I did not get the room cleaned, even after I mentioned to the front desk that I removed the sign. I had to ask twice for the room to be cleaned. I would recommend the hotel because it was very quiet and unlike most hotels I stay in the drapes really do darken the room. Props for that!! Also the restaurant was not good & was extremely cold. I had to go to my room to get a sweater.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LoneStarLad Needs Attention to Return to SPG Standards
Sadly, very disappointing. Before I begin, let me say the front desk staff was very kind and helpful & helped to balance the negatives of the facility.
Upon check in, I was given a third floor room with a view to a wall & air conditioning units through two small windows. Hardly what an SPG member would expect. I am not a room snob, but this was really disappointing and claustrophobic.
Then, I was offered a room on the eighth floor. This was better except I couldnt get into the room. The key card wouldn't work after 3x to the front desk trying to get it re-programmed. The maintenance man who came was very friendly and changed the batteries in the lock. I finally got settled after an hour from the time of arrival.
The toilet seat was loose and TP holder hanging from the wall. Surprisinglly no seat cover which made a great target for a towel which fell from the towel rack into the water. The toilet placement near the door was so tight one could not even use the facility without turning to the side. Perhaps this is why the toilet seat was loose from the previous guest?
On the first day, the room never got made up and I had left at 0800a and returned at 515p.
The next day it was freshened but no new coffee replacements left on this or any subsequent refresh of the room.
No refrigerator or mini-bar. Plastic cups wrapped i plastic? Scratched and chipped furniture? No waste basket in the main room, only in the bathroom. WiFi did work fine.
All these items would remind me of lesser level brands. Not Starwood brands.
The final insult to injury was the convention group of screaming giggling 11-15 year old girls swarming the hotel Friday and Saturday.
The adjoining room had such occupants and made it near impossible to concentrate on doing work emails.
I even checked if I could checkout one night early and leave Saturday night instead of having to stay until Sunday morning but was unable with the airlines.
Sorry for all the negativity in this review but it's what I observed and experienced. Will I stay at Starwood again, of course I will. But not this location again.
Again, the staff were the hotel's strongest asset with their kindness & trying to make things better. This you cannot replace. Facilities you can and must improve.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jeff1111 Poor Level of Service
This hotel (Sheraton Fort Worth) has poor customer service overall. There are many issues with this hotel such as toilets in the room not working properly or the iron not working. There are training issues with the staff and they are totally unorganized. If you are a traveler passing by the area, this may be a decent hotel to stay in however it is horrible for the frequent traveler staying in a hotel every week.
