Fort Worth is known as the gateway to the West, and the hotel staff is ready to welcome interstate visitors from the neighboring cities of Waco, Austin, Dallas, and Oklahoma City.

Kalpesh Patel, Buffalo Lodging LLC (Texas), owner, avid hotel Fort Worth - Fossil Creek, commented: 'We're so excited to bring the avid hotels brand to the vibrant city of Fort Worth and help guests experience all that this area has to offer.

All rooms are designed for sound sleeping, with a high-quality mattresses and linens, choice of firm and soft pillows and a purposeful design that reduces noise. All avid hotels stays are backed by the IHG Clean promise, which guarantees that the room will be 'just right' upon arrival and is cleaned against a 50-point checklist.
