Omni Dallas Wins Design Poll

After two weeks and more than 5,000 votes, we have the readers' choice winner in the second annual Lodging Hospitality Design Awards Poll. The Omni Dallas pulled away late in a close battle with the Radisson Blu Aqua Chicago. The Omni received 55% of the vote with 2,911 votes, while the Radisson Blu got 44%

The 1,001-room Omni Dallas was one of the biggest hospitality projects to open in 2011, a $550-million public-private development designed by BOKA Powell, 5G Studio and waldrop+nichols studio. The final result is a massive convention center hotel that reflects the dichotomy of Dallas, its commerce contrasted with glamour and glitz. The project earned LEED Silver certification.
