Omni Breaks Ground on New Convention Center Hotel in Oklahoma City




Omni Hotels & Resorts has announced the start of construction on the Omni Oklahoma City Hotel, a 605 guest room convention center hotel set to open in early 2021. Executives from Omni broke ground alongside Mayor David Holt, Cathy O’Connor, president and CEO of The Alliance for Economic Development of Oklahoma City and Mike Carrier, president of the Oklahoma City Convention & Visitors Bureau. The 17-story hotel at 100 West Oklahoma City Blvd. will serve the city’s revitalized downtown area including the future convention center, Scissortail Park and Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder.

The hotel will have 605 guest rooms, inclusive of 29 suites, with views of the 70-acre Scissortail Park and the downtown skyline, as well as seven dining outlets, a pool deck with event space, retail, 78,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space and a Mokara Spa.

The hotel is a $241 million investment and part of a public-private partnership with the city. Construction on the Oklahoma City Convention Center broke ground in June and is scheduled to open in 2020. Conference attendees and locals alike will enjoy Scissortail Park also currently under construction. In addition to expansive greenspace, the park’s design plans call for a café, sports facilities, a lake, nature trails and more. And basketball fans will have a new go-to hotel, located across the street from the home of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Omni Oklahoma City Hotel will aim to reflect its natural surroundings and the unique local culture of Oklahoma:

Design: Taking cues from Oklahoma’s dramatic prairie landscapes, design characteristics include a sky-blue color palette, abstract wheat patterns in corridors and chevron patterns inspired by Scissortail Park. Select guest rooms were designed with professional basketball teams and players in mind and feature larger door frames, taller ceilings and shower heads and longer beds.

Culinary: Omni Oklahoma City Hotel will have seven culinary outlets, with several restaurants lining Robinson Avenue with outdoor patio seating and street entrances. Dining experiences will include a Bob’s Steak & Chop House; lobby bar; sports bar; all-day dining outlet with to-go offerings; coffee shop; walk-up burger bar; and a poolside bar and grill.

Meetings: Situated between the new convention center and Chesapeake Energy Arena, Omni Oklahoma City Hotel will be a nationwide destination for meetings and events. All 78,000 square feet of meeting space will be located on the second floor, with the exception of an outdoor event lawn on the third floor.

Amenities: Omni Oklahoma City Hotel will be home to a Mokara Spa offering wellness experiences and salon services, a retail shop featuring leather goods and an elevated rooftop pool with a bar and grill.

Omni Oklahoma City Hotel will become a part of Omni’s Convention Center Collection, which includes signature properties in Atlanta, Louisville, Dallas, Nashville and Boston (opening in 2021).
