The District Hotel is the history-enriched, character-suffused boutique hotel on Henderson at Magnolia, with a location, design and character unequaled in Fort Worth. The brand tells the hotel’s story, which is authentic, personal and welcoming. The storytelling appeals to head and heart and creates a sense of history, place and expectation. Because the hotel is new, its authenticity is created through its connection, respect and embrace of the surrounding community. The Magnolia corridor and Fairmount are the history and story of The District Hotel, adding texture and depth to the hotel’s fresh narrative.

The creative team’s design charette revealed the richness of the Near Southside area in Fort Worth, Texas. The streetcar suburb was conceived at the turn of the century and represents the essence of Art & Crafts Architecture. The interior concepts give a modern nod to the era, reflecting the traditional craftsmanship and simple forms prevalent to the time period.

The Hotel is situated in the historical Near Southside neighborhood of Fort Worth, Texas. The long narrow lot was purchased in small parcels over numerous years. The architecture takes inspiration from the buildings adjacent to the lot. A new build, the concept features multiple edifices along the streetscape, with a central meeting room or courtyard. Red brick and white trim were directly influenced by the owners building across the street which is indicative of the period.
