The Crescent Hotel, Fort Worth will make its debut in late summer as the newest project in Crescent Real Estate’s platinum portfolio of properties.
It will be the Fort Worth Cultural District’s first luxury property located at the crossroads of downtown, the world-renowned Cultural District, and surrounding historic neighborhoods, according to the hotel announcement.
“Rising at the cultural crossroads of a vibrant downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods, The Crescent Hotel will deliver a local experience,” owner John Goff said in a statement. “From thoughtful on-property programming and culinary experiences and partnerships with renowned local museums and attractions to a curated art program inspired by international as well as local artists, the hotel experience will serve as Fort Worth’s living room — an extension of the inspired surrounding areas.”
The Crescent Hotel is part of a larger mixed-use project — The Crescent, Fort Worth — which includes a 170,000-square-foot Class AA office building and 167 luxury apartments.
The hotel is an extension of the unique areas in which it sits, serving as the new social center of Fort Worth.
It’s located steps from Fort Worth’s top destinations such as The Modern Art Museum, Dickies Arena, and the Kimbell Art Museum and was designed at five stories by OZ Architecture to blend seamlessly into the Cultural District, with interiors designed by Rottet Studio.
Authentic, natural materials are used throughout the space — including a marriage of stone, wood, metal, concrete, and locally sourced brick. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide a clear view of the lush courtyard oasis and fill the lobby with natural light.
The hotel will feature 200 guestrooms including 12 luxury suites. The Crescent said that simple elegance and comfort are at the forefront of each room’s design, from the rich marble accents to the refined décor.
Eats, drinks, events, and wellness
The Crescent, Fort Worth will offer dynamic dining experiences from morning to evening including upscale Mediterranean restaurant, Emelia’s, partnering with Fort Worth’s top purveyors and local farms, and an extended fine dining offering — Blue Room at Emelia’s.
The main dining room’s ambiance and energy, brought to life by AvroKO Hospitality Group, serves as the inviting backdrop to relish in the light, bright flavors of each dish developed by the restaurant’s Executive Chef, Preston Paine of Food Network’s “Ciao House.”
The hotel’s lobby bar, The Circle Bar, offers a Mediterranean mood and mindset by transitioning from day to night. From morning espressos to afternoon aperitivos and a rich variety of cocktails, wines, and bites from Emelia’s menu into the evening, The Circle Bar will serve as a welcoming social center of the hotel.
The Crescent Hotel’s exclusive rooftop bar will have panoramic views of Fort Worth and craft cocktails curated by expert mixologists.
The Crescent Hotel has more than 14,000 square feet of special event space across 10 unique venues, featuring a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, each complete with state-of-the-art technology.
“The hotel’s 8,000-square-foot courtyard will serve as the heart of the community with a custom climate-controlled tent for year-round memorable events, weddings and celebrations, while The Grand Ballroom with floor-to-ceiling glass doors creates a space flooded with natural light and indoor-outdoor possibilities,” General Manager Robert Rechtermann said in a statement.
Opening in October, The Canyon Ranch Wellness Club will create a haven for a well-balanced lifestyle, the hotel said. Guests will have access to the state-of-the-art fitness center and the renowned spa, which will feature 10 treatment rooms and a salon.
Reservations for The Crescent Hotel are now available for stays beginning September 2023.
