The $8.5 million remodeling of the Sheraton Fort Worth Downtown Hotel is nearly complete, with the interior renovation finished and the exterior renovation in progress, according to a news release.
The hotel, located at 1701 Commerce St., has a resigned lobby, meeting rooms and ballroom among other features. One additional room, the “Screening Room,” has a multipurpose television screen that can split into four different screens, allowing guests to watch four programs at once.
Another renovated feature is the hotel’s restaurant, the Chef’s Table Restaurant, which has a new menu by Chef Sherman Morris. The restaurant will serve burgers, steaks, tacos and other American dishes. The hotel also opened a second bar, the Texas of Texas Bar, which serves local beer and wine.
The building’s façade is currently under renovation, as the hotel plans to repaint the exterior and replace the yellow color with a brownish beige color for a more “modern” look, according to Andrea True, Sheraton’s Director of Sales and Marketing.
The renovation has been an eight-year project that is expected to finish by the end of February.
Architect for the project is Getty’s, from Chicago and the renovation company has been Dabcon Hospitality from Hurst.
