Design of 17-story Omni hotel unveiled

The first glimpse of designs for the 17-story Omni to be built next to the city's new convention center shows the hotel will front the future downtown boulevard with restaurants and bars designed also to draw visitors at the future Scissortail Park.

The 605-room hotel, along with a garage to be built by the city, is the last component yet to be seen by the public in the Core to Shore plan to transform a blighted swath of land between downtown and the Oklahoma River.

Designs by Rule Joy Trammel + Rubio show the hotel will have an outdoor pool surrounded by “resort-style” cabanas, green space and bar on the third floor facing Robinson Avenue that will overlook the park.

“The new Omni Hotel will become a fantastic highlight in Oklahoma City's Core to Shore vision,” architect Rob Rule said. “Located between the Chesapeake Energy Arena and the new convention center, the hotel will feature a tower that is oriented to minimize its shadow footprint on the new park across Robinson Avenue.”
