Omni Fort Worth – Great Staycation for Couples & Families
Confession time! If you’ve been in a relationship any length of time, most of you know there are a fair amount of struggles. Geno and I have been married for 23 years now. To be real, not all of it has been BLISS. In fact, at one point we almost ended our marriage. I think many couples go through this.
BUT, Geno and I went back to one thing my Mother-In-Law ALWAYS taught us when our first child was born. Her words exactly…”Find time for you as a couple once a week.” Pretty simple. And honestly, Geno and I blew it off, thinking, “we’re fine” and who has time for one night a week when we are busy running around from kids sports, events, school obligations, etc.??? If we were lucky, we spent one night a month together! Looking back, I saw how that created distance between us. We lost our communication and the “power of one” with our children. We forgot why we “fell in love” in the first place.
What does this have to do with the Omni Fort Worth Hotel? Well, even though we try once a week to spend couple time, it’s still a struggle. BUT, we do try to spend time together once a month. And about once every 3 or 6 months, we get away for a full 24 hours! Talk about rejuvenating your relationship! Our son now even recognizes when we need a night away and will suggest it! Recently we checked in for the weekend at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel. (Note: for deal seekers, I often share events, discounts and more on MyDFWMommy.com under the “around town” section.)
On Easter weekend, we stayed at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel and have now found our new “regular” spot to get away! Just 24 hours and I remembered why and how much I love my man and partner in life. I took pictures of him ALL night! LOL! We had time to reconnect and re-energize.
And because it was Easter weekend, we took another night and had the kids join us.
What is so special about the Omni?
The rooms are top notch, from the floors (yes, I notice those type of things), to a make-up mirror in the bathroom, comfy beds, even a little welcome package of snacks and Cognac (CLASSY!).
It’s CLEAN and the staff is very friendly and helpful. You are centered in downtown Fort Worth where you have a ton of entertainment venues, sights and eating establishments within a short walking distance.
Geno and I chose to stay at the hotel on Friday night and eat when we were alone. So many restaurant choices!
BOB’S STEAK & CHOP HOUSE
CAST IRON RESTAURANT
WHISKEY & RYE
WATER HORSE POOL BAR
We hung out at Whiskey & Rye, a very popular and fun sports bar that has televisions at every angle, complimentary billiards, and relaxed oversized leather seating. They had GREAT classic bar food with a Southern twist.

We took advantage of a package deal and took Ava to the Fort Worth Zoo. She could tell the difference with Geno and I…as we held hands walking in the zoo after spending a night together as a couple and reconnecting. Nick joined us later that afternoon where we had a fantastic meal in downtown Fort Worth, walked together and talked. And not just the “what did you did today?” type of talks. We had deep, meaningful conversations along with a lot of fun!
It’s a whole different level of “family time” when you take a little staycation AWAY from the house where there aren’t constant demands such as laundry, grocery shopping, and bills.
We talk a lot about Staycations in DFW… the Omni is one I HIGHLY recommend!
Thank you to Omni Fort Worth Hotel for providing us with an amazing weekend. These opinions are 100% my own and I will be back time and time again!
