Omni Dallas: It's Definitely Opening, And It's Definitely Got An Infinity Pool
Omni Dallas, which is set to open on 11/11/11, will include an infinity pool
Whoever said 11/11/11 would mark a pivotal world-changing event must have been cc'd on development memos issued from Omni Hotels' corporate office. That is to say, Omni's latest creation, Omni Dallas, a 1,001-room convention hotel on South Lamar St, will be opening on the portentous date—and with $111 rates, no less.
As part of the "Definitely Dallas" package (this name is putting dirty thoughts into our head), guests who book rooms through December 30, 2011 will receive $111 deluxe guest rooms. Inside the rooms, you'll find a 111-inch flat-screen TV; and on top of the beds, you'll rest your head on 111 pillows. And in the bathroom....OK, we're just kidding. In fact, the bathrooms do come with mirror TVs (which we remain undecided over), and the rooms all feature pieces by local artists.
WSJ points out that this is the second largest non-casino hotel to open in the US this year, behind the J.W. Marriott Indinanapolis. Appropriately, the hotel's sports bar, Owner's Box, will cater to football fans of all stripes and colors with 78 screens (private game-watching tables are also available). Two other restaurants, Bob's Steak & Chop House and Texas Spice, plus a 4th-floor poolside terrace bar, Uptown Terrace, will also be available on the property.
Over 7,000 sculptures, paintings and drawings will grace the hotel, whose rates will normally hover around the $169-$349 range.
