The new Lakehouse resort pool area at the Omni Las Colinas in Irving, Texas
The 421-room Omni Las Colinas Hotel, formerly Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas, in Irving, Texas, has completed a $13 million upgrade to various common areas.
The property's dining options have been revamped. New is the Lakehouse Waterfront Lounge, a spacious resort-style poolscape and lounge area, featuring bar seating, poolside dining and 161 chaise longues, along with a 10,700-square-foot outdoor event space.
Two restaurants and a grab-and-go market also have been added. The lobby lounge and eatery is now LRH Restaurant & Bar (the LRH stands for "Little Ranch of the Hills" or "El Ranchito de Las Colinas"), with a menu of craft cocktails and Texas-inspired dishes. Flossie's takes over as the breakfast spot, serving shareable plates and healthy morning options using farm-fresh ingredients and local meats. The space can be used for private events later in the day. Over the Counter, the first iteration of Omni's new grab-and-go market, offers up snacks, sandwiches, coffee and espresso, and more.
"During the renovation process, it was important for us to celebrate our natural surroundings and incorporate elements of leisure to reflect the spirit of Las Colinas," said Nydia Hoskins, general manager of the hotel. "We're proud to welcome thousands of out-of-town visitors throughout the year, and now we're able to truly showcase the local color and local flavor of Las Colinas with our hotel guests."
The Omni Las Colinas features 35,000 square feet of meeting space.
