Located at the southern edge of the Fort Worth Stockyards, this 200-room property opened last March, with one reader calling it a “much-needed addition to such a cool city.” The design channels a polished rusticity through touches like exposed-wood beams in the ceiling and antiques like chairs and backboards throughout the rooms. The Veranda Bar in the lush backyard is a small oasis where you can enjoy a cocktail in the warm Texan air. Readers were big fans of the property’s location. “Close to everything!” attested one.
Since opening in 2021, the Drover has been recognized by USA Today,Condé Nast, Forbes, and Travel + Leisure for its unique and elegant western glam design, its curated art, crafted fixtures, and custom furnishings.

Stockyards Hotel, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, adds an exciting historical touch to the district. Known for its rich ancestry, historic architecture and unique character, the Stockyards Hotel offers elegant accommodations in a relaxed atmosphere. Restored to its original grandeur, each of its 42 rooms and 10 suites is unique in its décor, reflecting the cattle baron era of the Old West and the early 19th century.
Cowboys and cattle barons, kings and queens of country music, even an outlaw or two have found refuge and romance at the Stockyards Hotel. The Bonnie and Clyde junior suite, for instance, is the actual room occupied by the infamous pair during their 1933 stay in Fort Worth. The hotel’s website boasts a long list of celebrity guests, including Tanya Tucker, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Randy Travis, Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Pam Tillis and Tim McGraw, just to name a few.
Fort Worth Stockyards is a Texas Vacation Experience
As a drover headed cattle up the Chisholm Trail to the railheads, he had one last stop for rest and supplies: Fort Worth, Texas. That was the genesis of the Fort Worth Stockyards. Fort Worth is where the West begins, and nothing embodies Western heritage better than the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, every inch of the Stockyards tells the true history of Texas’s famous livestock industry.
True to its history, the Stockyards still hosts the world’s only twice-daily cattle drive. All this – plus more than a hundred new shopping, dining and entertainment venues – makes the Fort Worth Stockyards one of Texas’ most popular tourist destinations.
