Bowie House Hotel 

Filmmaker: Gregory A. Beck, Two Trees Productions 


When you walk into a beautiful hotel, there’s a chance you don’t know how much work went in to making it that way. It’s meant to look effortless. But Ashley Sansalone knows that effortlessness is the result of tireless, well, effort. As director of sales at the new Bowie House Hotel, Sansalone talks about the artwork, décor and feel of the space.  


The western motif will undoubtedly draw visitors coming to events at Dickies Arena and Will Rogers Memorial Center. It will become a hub for rodeo athletes and fans looking for a place to relax after a long day. Its modern comfort and hospitality still pays tribute to Fort Worth’s robust history with ranching, cattle and the rodeo. And it fits perfectly onto the Fort Worth landscape.

What are your favorite Fort Worth restaurants?  

Oh this changes on any given day!! I am biased, but Bricks and Horses ranks #1 for many reasons! Beyond that, Don Artemio when I am feeling fancy. Joe T's on a pretty day when I am craving a margarita; Press Cafe for an afternoon out with the girls, Bonnell's when I want to kick it old school. 


What is your favorite place to take visitors in Fort Worth?  

Hands down the museum district, particularly The Modern and Cowgirl Hall of Fame.

My family and I love to ride our bikes on Trinity Trails. Beyond that, my favorite "me time" is a long walk on the trails. 


What is your favorite place to listen to music in Fort Worth?  

Tannahill's Tavern always has cool artists and it is such an intimate experience! 


What do you think visitors will find unexpected about Fort Worth? 

We have such a diversely sophisticated culture. The pride in the western lifestyle is tangible in Fort Worth and everyone embraces it. Meanwhile, we are a city of the arts, business and music among many other things!
