FRISCO - Omni Hotels & Resorts and the Dallas Cowboys have announced plans to bring a full-service luxury hotel to the team’s headquarters project in Frisco.

The upscale hotel, set to open in 2017, will be a cornerstone for the private development surrounding the Cowboys headquarters and a training facility that will be shared with the City of Frisco and Frisco ISD.

The Omni Frisco Hotel — the city’s first luxury hotel — will be built adjacent to the publicly owned 12,000-seat multi-use event center. The 300-room hotel will include meeting space, a ballroom and a rooftop pool overlooking a plaza area that will be a focal point for the Cowboys development.

The hotel will be part of the 66 acres of private development surrounding those facilities at Warren Pkwy. and the Dallas North Tollway. The site will also include retail, restaurants and office space.

City, school and team leaders broke ground on the multi-use event center in August. It is expected to open in summer 2016. The hotel is expected to break ground in spring 2015.

City and school officials are putting up $115 million to construct the multi-use event center and team headquarters, with any remaining costs paid by the Dallas Cowboys.
