Its forthcoming hotel at the site of the new Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters in Frisco, Texas, is officially accepting bookings for meetings and events, Omni Hotels & Resorts announced last week.
Scheduled to open in early summer 2017, the Omni Frisco Hotel will have 300 guest rooms and 24,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 13,000-square-foot ballroom, as well a rooftop pool and deck accommodating up to 400 guests. Other highlights will include a retail outlet offering local wares, artwork honoring Cowboys Ring of Honor inductees, and proximity to The Ford Center, a 12,000-seat indoor stadium that will serve as the Cowboys' practice and training facility.
"This extraordinary development and hotel will be a dynamic destination offering travelers a truly one-of-a-kind experience," said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. "The design and style of the hotel will honor the history of the Dallas Cowboys and the unbelievable progress of the city of Frisco. This hotel will be a true collaboration that reflects the local flavor of Frisco."
Added Frisco Mayor Maher Maso, "As one of the fastest growing communities in Texas and America for the last decade, Frisco's reputation as a top destination for travelers -- both for business and leisure -- is growing, as well. We know the Dallas Cowboys and Omni will help bolster Frisco's reputation as a world-class destination for visitors, while enhancing quality of life, entertainment, and business opportunities for our residents, too."
Planners interested in booking a meeting or event may visit the hotel's website or contact Omni Global Director of Sales for the Southwest Beverly Garlington.
