Omni will debut in Raleigh with new convention center hotel
The City of Raleigh is partnering with Omni Hotels & Resorts to develop the highly anticipated convention hotel in the core of downtown Raleigh. The dynamic addition to the Raleigh skyline will be built across from the Raleigh Convention Center and Martin Marietta Center for the Performing Arts.
Expected to open in 2027, the Omni Raleigh Hotel will be a great addition to Omni’s growing portfolio of more than 50 luxury hotels.
This will be the third Omni property in the state of North Carolina and the first for the capital city. The Omni Raleigh Hotel is anticipated to include 550 guest rooms and 55,000 square feet of meeting space, which will allow for larger events to take place downtown and support the growth of the Raleigh Convention Center expansion. The hotel will also feature several food and beverage outlets, a rooftop pool, a signature Mokara spa and a fitness center.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for the City of Raleigh and Wake County. We’ve been envisioning a new convention center hotel downtown for years. We are now one step closer to making it happen," said Raleigh Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin. "This opens up endless possibilities for more conferences, more conventions and more events at the Raleigh Convention Center. And the economic benefits cannot be overstated."
Plans are also underway for a Raleigh Convention Center expansion. The increase in downtown room inventory will assist in recruiting larger and more frequent conventions to the area.
