Loews Hotel and Convention Center Serves the Arlington Entertainment District

A large conference room.

A metropolitan center that is thriving like the Arlington, TX Entertainment District needs the proper amenities to serve all the people that flock to the area. The aim of the new Loews Hotel and Convention Center in the area is to do just that. The mammoth hotel can accommodate thousands of guests and can host meetings and events of all sizes.

After a grand opening in February, 2024, the hotel and convention are now fully operational, adding even more attractions to an already booming entertainment district.

A Sizable and Sophisticated Structure

Loews is no stranger to Arlington, having already operated Live! By Loews in the city for several years. But the size and scope of this project dwarfs not only that previous hotel, but all other lodging and meeting spaces in Arlington.

The structure, which was built by JE Dunn Construction, is a 22-story tower, consisting of 888 luxury hotel rooms and 570,000 square feet of convention center space. Three ballrooms of various sizes make up 123,000 square feet of that space. There are also 62,000 square feet dedicated to meeting spaces and resort-style amenities. The facility additionally features 22,580 square feet of commercial kitchen space that can serve up to 25,000 convention guests.

The building is connected to a seven-level parking garage with a capacity of 1,500 cars. Meanwhile, guests can access the Live! By Loews – Arlington Hotel and its 300 guestrooms and meeting space via a skybridge.

A Bevy of Amenities

The meeting spaces at Loews Hotel and Convention Center are far from one-size-fits-all. An expansive event lawn allows for outdoor events of all sizes. Meanwhile, with the largest ballroom in North Texas – the 51,000 square foot Grand Ballroom – the hotel can provide top notch service to as many as 5,000 guests. There are also a range of large and small meeting rooms throughout the premises.

The hotel features five restaurants and lounges including a popular Italian spot called “Farena” which features wood-fired stone pizza ovens and a “Pasta Lab.” Additional dining options include Veranda, an extension of Farena, the poolside Tomar El Sol, the Railbird Coffee Shop, and a lobby bar/lounge. In addition, a pan-Asian fusion restaurant will debut this summer.

Besides rooms and meeting spaces, the hotel features a resort-style beach club with two pools, cabanas, fire pits, a man-made beach, a water slide, and a 100-seat swim-up bar and a spa and fitness center.

The Arlington Entertainment District

The Loews Hotel and Convention Center is more of a necessity than a luxury for Arlington’s Entertainment District, due to the demand caused by rapid growth. The hotel is situated in the epicenter of sports and entertainment in North Texas. It is centrally located between Dallas and Fort Worth, only 10 minutes away from DFW International Airport. More importantly, it is across the street from the newly-constructed Globe Life Field – home of the 2023 World Series Champion Texas Rangers – and in the same area of AT&T Stadium – home of the Dallas Cowboys. For those looking to do something together with the whole family, the hotel is also located a short drive from multiple amusement parks.

Nearby retail options include Arlington Highlands and Grand Prairie Premium Outlets. For those interested in cultural options, the Arlington Museum of Art, The Gallery at UT Arlington, and the Arlington Sculpture Trail at Richard Greene Linear Park are a short walk from the hotel.

Outdoor enthusiasts can take a short trip to Lake Arlington to fish, kayak, or paddleboard. Plus, the area boasts several impressive golf courses, including the first-ever MLB-branded facility – the Texas Rangers Golf Club.

An entertainment district with so much to offer is sure to attract many, who now have a modern, convenient, world-class place to stay in the Loews Hotel and Convention Center.

At Construction Protection Systems, we are proud to have played a small part in the development of the Loews Hotel and Arlington Convention Center. Stay tuned for more updates from the makers of 1-2-3 Door Shield—the original, reusable door protection system.
