Live! by Loews has checked in to bolster Arlington's hospitality and entertainment industries.
The $150 million-dollar hotel officially opened Thursday. The hotel anchors Texas Live! entertainment complex within Arlington's Entertainment District.
The 14-stories, 300-room hotel stands adjacent to Texas Live!, opened in exactly a year ago. Other notable neighbors include Texas Rangers' Globe Life Park, forthcoming Globe Life Field and Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium.
The hotel project is a joint venture between Loews Hotels & Co, a subsidiary of Loews Corporation, The Cordish Companies and the Texas Rangers.
"This opening marks a significant milestone for us, as we continue to make deliberate investments and strategically grow the company, adding five additional hotels over the course of the next 10 months in Orlando, Texas and Missouri," Jonathan Tisch, Chairman & CEO of Loews Hotels & Co., said in a statement.
Each of the 300 guest rooms at Live! by Loews – Arlington, TX features floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the neighboring stadiums and city skylines, coupled with spacious layouts, natural wood surfaces and comfortable lounging areas.
