The official wedding hotel is the TownePlace Suites Fort Worth Downtown, located at 805 East Belknap, Fort Worth, TX. We encourage all out-of-town guests to stay here, as we will be hiring a private shuttle to transport people between the hotel and wedding location.
This hotel is located about a half-mile from the heart of downtown Fort Worth, within a half-hour drive of both the airport and wedding venue. It offers a free shuttle until 8pm within a 5-mile radius to attractions like Sundance Square, the stockyards, and art museums. The hotel features a pool and every room has a kitchenette with sink, refrigerator, microwave, etc.
We have negotiated a special wedding rate of $109/night (normal rates are ~$150), including free breakfast. Call them at 817-332-6300 to reserve a room and mention Alderete/Shermetaro. A block of rooms at this rate will be held until September 20.
You can fly into either of two airports. Most airlines use Dallas Fort Worth (DFW), while a few including Southwest use Dallas Love Field (DAL). DFW is a little closer at 30 minutes away from downtown Fort Worth whereas DAL is 45 minutes away.
We encourage guests to arrive on Friday, Oct 5 as we’re planning a special event for the evening before the wedding.
If you have two or more people in your group, a rental car is suggested and cost effective. Otherwise, you can take Supershuttle to/from the airport (~$20 per person each way) and then either walk or take the hotel’s free shuttle into downtown Fort Worth for food and sightseeing. For the wedding ceremony a free private shuttle will transport people between the hotel and wedding venue.
