Set to open its doors in late 2025, Omni Fort Lauderdale Hotel is now accepting group booking requests for 2026 and beyond. The new 29-story hotel development will be connected directly to the Broward County Convention Center, which is undergoing a major expansion and renovation.
Omni Fort Lauderdale Hotel will offer 801 guestrooms and suites, multiple restaurants, a rooftop bar, a pool, spa and fitness center. The hotel will also have over 120,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, including a grand ballroom, junior ballroom, 25 breakout rooms and pre-function meeting space with waterfront views.
In addition, the property has tapped Aaron Weegar as director of sales and marketing. He has over 20 years of hospitality experience and has served notable roles at Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort and Spa, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin in Lake Buena Vista, The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood Beach and the Caribe Royal All-Suites Hotel and Convention Center in Orlando.
“Having held several leadership positions in hospitality across the state, it is an honor to be at the forefront of major change in Fort Lauderdale and introduce a unique and modern experience to the South Florida meetings and conventions market,” said Weegar in a press statement. “The county’s $1.3 billion investment in both the Omni Fort Lauderdale Hotel and expansion of the Broward County Convention Center will enhance the appeal of this great destination on a global scale. We look forward to the opportunity to greet guests from all over with a taste of local flavor.”
The Broward County Convention Center expansion will include an additional 525,000-plus square feet for a total of 1,200,000 square feet of overall meeting space. There will also be significant upgrades, including advanced conference technology offerings that will add value to the hotel’s efforts for attracting clients and overall business with the convention center.
