Don't Mess with Texas when it comes to opening hotels. The massive Omni Dallas Convention Center Hotel will open two months early on November 11. This will be the third Omni Hotel in the Dallas area but it will be the biggest with 1,001 guest rooms, including 67 luxury suites and three presidential suites.
The rooms will go big too, starting at around 400-sq.ft. and featuring authentic artwork, floor-to-ceiling windows, LCD TVs, TVs in the mirror and free WiFi, for members of Omni's Select Guest loyalty program.
The 11.11.11 opening day is not wishy-washy either, like so many other hotels, as the Omni is planning a large Veteran's Day event with the hotel's ribbon-cutting to happen right after. The hotel will then host a sales convention from Dallas-based Freeman November 13-15.
But once that all dies down, guests will finally be able to get into the rooms on November 16. Rooms start at $149 a night for a deluxe king. You can book via OmniHotels.com or Facebook. Yes, Facebook. Remember?
Lady Gaga recently stepped out of the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome with a new tri-colored beehive that has everyone buzzing.
The "Born This Way" singer is staying at the Paris hotel for the Cannes Film Festival, where she will perform on French television show Le Grand Journal. Unfortunately, while Gaga remembered to bring her cape, she must have forgotten to pack some shirts. Maybe the hotel can help her out with that.
What? This isn't what you wear when you stay at hotels?
Due to snow and other bad weather, Gaga was forced to cancel her Parisian concert but she made the best of it by greeting fans outside her hotel, The Park Hyatt Vedome which is located on Rue de la Paix, and right near the Place Vendôme and the Place de la Concorde.
Naturally, Gaga is holed up in one of the hotel's suites but which one? We're liking the sound of the Vendome suite which comes with a mansard roof and a private balcony overlooking the Rue de la Paix, with an up close and personal view of the Vendôme column.
