Omni Hotels & Resorts and the Dallas Cowboys officially cut the ribbon at the Omni Frisco Hotel in a ceremony Friday morning (Aug. 25, 2017). Located at The Star, the Omni Frisco Hotel presents itself as the epitome of luxury in North Texas. With rooms and decor designed to showcase the heritage of the Cowboys and the City of Frisco, along with top-notch culinary experiences, the hotel is the lifestyle destination of Frisco.
The Omni Frisco Hotel officially opened on July 24, 2017.
“The Omni Frisco Hotel is the pinnacle of luxury in North Texas and we were thrilled today to welcome our guests from around the community to come and experience the hotel for the first time,” said Robert Rowling, owner and chairman, TRT Holdings, Inc. “It has truly been a pleasure working with the Jones family and the Cowboys organization, as well as the City of Frisco, on this project and we cannot wait to see all the great things that continue to happen here at The Star and Omni Frisco Hotel.”
Attendees experienced highlighted areas of the hotel, including Neighborhood Services, which launched its new brunch menu, exclusive to the Omni Frisco Hotel. Guests enjoyed signature cocktails from the hotel’s fourth floor pool deck with its accompanying bar and grill—the Edge Bar. They enjoyed views of the outdoor field at Ford Center, Cowboys Fit and the forthcoming retail spaces at The Star. In addition, guests sampled light fare from the hotel’s Lobby Bar, which features select wines curated by the hotel’s master sommelier and a selection of specialty cheeses by artisanal cheesemongers.
