Omni Hotels & Resorts is announcing new developments for the hotel. The 16-story hotel is set to open in June 2017, showcasing 300 guest rooms and suites, and 24,000 square-feet of meeting space, including a 13,000-square-foot ballroom. Additionally, Omni Hotels & Resorts has appointed Gayla Guyse as director of sales and marketing for the Omni Frisco Hotel. Guyse has 20 years of experience working for the Omni Frisco Hotel. More than half of Guyse’s career has been working in leadership positions at Omni properties, including a director of sales and marketing position at Omni Dallas Hotel at Park West; a director position in catering and conference services at the Omni Park West and the Omni Fort Worth Hotel; a food and beverage director position for The Stoneleigh Hotel in Dallas; and a director of catering and conference services position at the Westin Beechwood. She has received numerous accolades including Omni’s President Circle (six times) and the 2013 Sales & Marketing Ideal Executive of the Year.

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

While many know Colorado as a big craft beer state (fifth place ranking in the United States for number of craft breweries) and the founding place of Coors, its place on the nation’s wine map continues to expand. Just as some people prefer an IPA to a stout, some folks are more sauvignon black than merlot. What’s a meeting and event planner to do? 

Go local

 

It’s a magazine editor’s dream to receive an email saying, “I have a great event space I wanted to get on your radar.” Sometimes, the statement leads to a ho-hum, not very interested reaction, but this one has me excited to see the results upon the expected fall opening of Society bordering the River North Art District (RiNo) in Denver. Formerly The Wrangler bar and nightclub, vacant since 2018, the three-story, 15,000-square-foot multipurpose collective at 3090 N. Downing St. will house three concepts: Thrive, Vibe, and Alive.
