Loews Arlington to Bolster Arlington’s C-V Opportunities
Loews Hotels & Co recently broke ground on the new $550 million Loews Arlington Hotel and Convention Center. The addition of the full-service resort will further strengthen Arlington’s convention and tourism opportunities.
“Loews Arlington Hotel and Convention Center will allow us to capitalize on what we do best – combine a unique meetings and events destination with a best-in-class leisure resort,” said Jonathan Tisch, chairman and CEO, Loews Hotels & Co. “This significant investment further underscores our confidence and commitment not only in the great city of Arlington, Texas but also in the strength of the travel and tourism industry and our belief in the recovery of post-pandemic travel.”
This property will be the second Arlington hotel for the hospitality company. Loews Arlington Hotel and Convention Center is scheduled to open in early 2024. This new hotel will be located across from Live! by Loews, which is a joint venture among Loews Hotels & Co, the Texas Rangers and The Cordish Companies, built on the former Texas Rangers’ Lot J parking lot.
“Arlington has some of the best built-in demand generators in the country such as AT&T Stadium and Globe-Life Field. These attractions, coupled with Loews Hotels’ track record of offering distinctive experiences alongside operational excellence, will help establish the Loews Arlington Hotel and Convention Center as a centerpiece in The American Dream City,” said Alex Tisch, president, Loews Hotels & Co. “Our goal is for Arlington, Texas to stand alongside Las Vegas and Orlando as one of the pre-eminent family, sports and entertainment destinations in America.”
