Fort Worth does not shy away from its reputation of being “where the West begins”. Nowhere is this truer than the Stockyards – where the twice-daily cattle drives are number one on most travelers’ to-do lists. As befitting a state is where the mercury kisses the high-30s in summer, finding a Fort Worth hotel with a pool is another requisite. We’ve rounded up the best splash-happy retreats – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Hilton Fort Worth, for a classic Texas dinner

This hotel is by the local National Register of Historic Place – the site of the last presidential address of JFK. Sundance Square – the 35-block shopping and entertainment apex of Fort Worth – is also just a five-minute stroll away. As well as the pool, there’s a modern, 1,000sqft (93sqm) fitness center – the perfect spot to burn off calories you may acquire in the on-site restaurant, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. Feeling brave? Get the 40oz Tomahawk for two – and head straight to bed after.

2. The Worthington Renaissance Fort Worth Hotel, for memorable food offerings

Ensconce yourself in the myriad joys of downtown, with attractions like the Kimbell Art Museum and Fort Worth Stockyards – both less than a five-minute drive away. The indoor pool and whirlpool are open for morning larks and night owls alike – conveniently from 6am to 11pm. Toro Toro is a restaurant and cocktail bar that doesn’t shy away from its locale – expect bull horns hanging from the ceiling and a pan-Latin menu offering lip-smacking dishes aplenty like the Toro Toro churrasco.

3. Omni Fort Worth Hotel, for an indulgent spa day

With its striking combination of slick glass and native building materials, the Omni Fort Worth Hotel imposes itself on the local skyline. After a morning pounding the Stockyards streets, what could be better sinking into the Mokara Spa? Try the Cowboy and Cowgirl Couple’s Massage for the true local experience. The outdoor heated pool is open from 6am to 10pm and is suitable for the whole family – with a depth ranging all the way up to 4.6ft (1.4m)

With a 24-hour on-site restaurant and nightclub, Cassidy’s – open daily from 4pm to 10pm – this hotel is for people unafraid to party. The heated swimming pool is the ideal place to decompress from the night before heading out into downtown or the Stockyards – an 11-minute drive away. Ready for another evening out? Billy Bob’s Texas honky-tonk is a local treasure – watch bull riding or local musicians while chowing down on chicken-fried steak or ribeye.

8. Courtyard by Marriott, for fitness lovers

Fitness fanatics rejoice: the outdoor pool is seasonal while the fitness center – complete with Stairmaster, elliptical machine and free weights – provides you with 24-hour access. Make time to treat yourself, too – the nearby Woodshed Smokehouse is a homage to all things grilled, roasted and slow-cooked. College sports fan? Head to the Amon G Carter Stadium Texas Christian University nearby and watch the TCU Horned Frogs compete in the Big 12 Conference.
