FORT WORTH, Tex. – The Kimpton Harper Hotel is set to make its debut in downtown Fort Worth on June 2, 2021.
Development Services Group, Inc., based in Memphis, Tenn., acquired the architectural landmark near Sundance Square from XTO Energy and oversaw the adaptive reuse to convert it from an office building into The Harper Hotel. Originally built in 1921 in the heart of downtown Fort Worth as the headquarters for Farmers and Mechanics Bank, the reimagining of the building coincides with the 100th anniversary of its original completion. The Harper Hotel is managed by Pivot, the lifestyle operating vertical of Davidson Hospitality Group.
With more than 10,000 square feet of event space, including the Sanquinet Boardroom on the 24th floor and the Centurion Ballroom on the second floor, along with meeting rooms and spaces for gatherings of all kinds, The Harper Hotel will host events spanning from classrooms and conferences to weddings. Additionally, meeting rooms have built-in buffets, and personalized catering is available.
The Harper Hotel offers 226 guest rooms and suites. Designer Cynthia Forchielli of Forchielli Glynn brings a blend of relaxed yet sophisticated design to every room, including handcrafted furniture, brass pendant lights, woven baskets, and local art.
Guest rooms and suites offer Frette bedding, Atelier Bloem bath amenities, Bluetooth speaker systems, and bathrobes. For guests wanting a little extra space to spread out, 31 one-bedroom suites offer these amenities and more, such as soaking tubs, wet bars, and views of downtown Fort Worth and surrounding plains.
For a morning or afternoon pick-me-up, The Harper Hotel offers complimentary coffee and tea service for guests and hosts a daily social hour from 5 to 6 p.m. in the living room lobby. Guests can also take advantage of the state-of-the-art fitness center with high-end equipment, such as Peloton bikes.
