Dallas Cowboys, Omni Hotels Partner for New Hotel
Exciting news from Texas today: 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 Omni property will reportedly be one of the only full-service upscale hotels in the area, and serve as a cornerstone of a mixed-use development, which will be anchored by the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters and Frisco’s Multi-Use Event Center
The Omni Frisco Hotel will have 300 guestrooms, 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 events and activities hosted by the City of Frisco and FISD at the 12,000-seat indoor multi-use events and sports facility.
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.
Ground broke on the Cowboys World Headquarters on August 22. The Omni Frisco Hotel is expected to break ground in the spring of 2015, with a scheduled opening set for early 2017.
