Hotel Texas

Prominently located on Main Street, Fort Worth's primary inner-city commercial thoroughfare, the Hotel Texas provides the city with an eclectic arrangement of styles, motifs, and ornamentations. Although the hotel has undergone many renovation programs since its construction in 1920, it retains the character established in the sensitive blending of stylistic references and contributes significantly in function and aesthetics to main Street and Fort Worth.

Designed by Sanguinet & Staats of Fort Worth and Mavran, Russell, & Clowell of St. Louis, the fourteen-story, free-standing, rectangular structure occupies one city block with the lobby facade oriented south on Eighth Street.  The red brick structure accented with white terra cotta trim emulates the Chicago School in an arrangement of base, shaft, and cornice. Renaissance and Georgian features are denoted in the ornamental terra cotta.

Hotel Texas is a Registered Texas Historic Landmark (RTHL #2574) and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NR #79003011).
