FRISCO, Tex. – The team behind Hyatt Regency Frisco has announced its doors are expected to open on June 1, 2020.
Designed for productivity as well as a respite from the stress of travel, the 18-story, 303-room hotel, located within Frisco’s Stonebriar Centre, will offer elevated experiences for both leisure and business travelers. Guests will arrive at the street-level entrance to an open, contemporary lobby that has a subtle décor and is full of natural light. It also encompasses dining concepts and areas for working individually or in small groups.
The hotel will also be accessed via the landmark shopping mall on the second floor, located between Nordstrom and Dillard’s. Frisco, a charming suburb just north of Dallas, was named after the iconic “Frisco” railroad during the golden age of railroads, which opened up the city to people and products.
The hotel will include a 27,500-square-foot conference center including the Regency and Junior ballrooms and additional breakout spaces, a large lobby bar, two restaurants, and a 3,000-square-foot satellite Frisco Public Library which will be accessible to hotel visitors and city residents. The only U.S. location for Kidzania, an experiential and educational real-life city built for children ages four to 17, will be next to the hotel and offer specials for hotel guests. Other nearby attractions includes Toyota Stadium, Frisco Discovery Center, and other entertainment attractions.
The hotel’s owner and developer Sam Moon Group entered into a public-private partnership with the City of Frisco to reinvest in and enhance Stonebriar Centre which has long been considered Frisco’s first economic engine.
“Frisco is a modern city brimming with attractions, and the new Hyatt Regency Frisco will reflect this contemporary mindset. It is hard to imagine this bustling city was once a dusty cattle drive trail and now it is a tourist destination renowned for shopping, stadiums, conventions, and entertainment. Our hotel will celebrate the spirit of this vibrant community,” says developer Daniel Moon.
The Hyatt Regency Frisco was designed by HKS Inc. Architects in a glass sheathed transitional modern style and will feature views of Frisco. Brasfield & Gorrie is the project’s contractor and construction manager, while interiors by Looney & Associates will evoke a timeless Texas flavor crafted with subtle textures and colors and tactile natural materials. Soft architectural lighting and plenty of dramatic focal elements will guide guests throughout the property, ensuring a seamless, intuitive experience.
