Loews hotel coming to Arlington’s Texas Live! project


The Texas Live! development in Arlington has landed a $150 million flagship hotel, Live! by Loews for the project.

The hotel and convention center will be key to the Texas Live! project, a $250 million dining, entertainment and hospitality destination being developed by a partnership between The Cordish Companies, Texas Rangers and the City of Arlington.

“The Cordish Companies and the Texas Rangers are two world-class organizations with an incredible vision for the Arlington Entertainment District that is highlighted by their commitment to quality of design and architecture,” stated Jonathan Tisch, chairman and CEO of Loews Hotels & Co. “This partnership allows us the opportunity to bring Loews Hotels back to Texas after a more than 20 year hiatus and presents what we plan is the first of several new hotels under the Live! by Loews partner brand.”

Designed by HKS Architects, the 14-story tall contemporary glass tower will feature 302 luxury guestrooms, including 26 suites, with floor to ceiling glass windows that show off incredible, expansive views of the entertainment district from each room. The tower will feature several unique resort-style spaces and amenities for guests.

This is a home run for Arlington and its residents and visitors.”

Loews Hotels & Co.’s core brand, Loews Hotels, caters to meetings and groups, business, leisure, and family travelers in key urban and resort destinations throughout the United States and Canada.

“Loews Hotels & Co. brings a first-class level of hospitality that is unmatched,” stated Blake Cordish, vice president of The Cordish Companies.
