of the Radisson Hotel Fort Worth to Hilton
DALLAS, Feb. 24, 2006 - Known for its care of historic lodging landmarks throughout the country as well as the proven ability to tailor revenue enhancing renovations for its clients, Remington announced plans to remake history once again with a rebranding and $10.5 million renovation of the Radisson Plaza Hotel Fort Worth in Fort Worth, Texas. Registered as a national historic landmark, the hotel will be converted by Remington to the Hilton brand and renamed the Hilton Fort Worth when the renovation is completed in April 2006.
A moment in time. A place in history. No words could accurately describe the place this hotel holds in the nation's history, a time when America seemed more innocent. Known as the former Hotel Texas, President Kennedy and the First Lady spent their last night together at the hotel on November 21, 1963.
The next morning, after a speech in the Crystal Ballroom, the President's
motorcade embarked on its fateful appointment with history. From its early
days in the 1920's, the hotel has also been an important witness to Fort
Worth's transformation from a rowdy cattle town, then a city awash in oil
money, to its present day position as the 19th largest city in the United
States and a thriving center of culture and commerce.
Having managed the hotel since 1995, we have worked closely with our
client to translate Remington's knowledge of the property and its surrounding
market into an extensive renovation and rebranding that should significantly
enhance the property's draw for leisure and business travelers. With the
fabulous, versatile meeting space, fine cuisine and well-equipped, elegant
and classic guestrooms, we also expect the new Hilton Fort Worth to become
the first choice for upscale corporate customers. The Hilton brand is synonymous
with the best in lodging and hospitality worldwide, which makes for a perfect
fit with the hotel's coveted place in American history. The new amenities
we will bring to the property should also greatly improve our guests' experience
in one of downtown Fort Worth's prime locations."
