Oct 30 14
The Dallas Cowboys and Omni Hotels & Resorts are partnering to develop a new hotel at the future site of the Cowboys World Headquarters in Frisco, Texas. The luxurious Omni property will be one of the only full-service upscale hotels in the area, and serve as a cornerstone of the mixed-use development, which will be anchored by the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters and Frisco's Multi-Use Event Center. The publicly owned, 12,000-seat multipurpose event center will be used by the City of Frisco and Frisco Independent School District (FISD) to host various activities including athletic competitions, graduations and other special events. The Dallas Cowboys will also use the event center as its training facility. The Omni Frisco Hotel will feature 300 finely appointed guest rooms, meeting space and a ballroom, and several food and beverage experiences, including a rooftop pool deck. The hotel will serve meeting groups, as well as business and leisure travelers alike, including visitors attending Cowboys training camp, as well as the many events and activities hosted by the City of Frisco and FISD at the 12,000-seat indoor multi-use events and sports facility. Guests may also enjoy the retail and dining establishments that will be adjacent to the hotel. Located on a 90-acre site at the northwest corner of Warren Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway, the Cowboys World Headquarters will be the new home to the NFL team's entire football operations, including administrative offices, coaches' offices and the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. The mixed-use development will be built on approximately 66 acres remaining of the 90-acre tract. Planned uses for the development also include additional corporate offices, retail and restaurants.
