Omni hotel at cnn center named official hotel of college football hall of fame

ATLANTA (May 21, 2013) — The luxurious Omni Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta has been named the Official Hotel and Caterer of the new College Football Hall of Fame, which is set to open in the fall 2014. Omni will manage the meeting, event and function space, as well as concessions for the Hall, which is expected to attract half-a-million visitors per year. The hotel is now booking groups, associations and events interested in utilizing this unique space in what will be a state-of-the-art facility. 

The College Football Hall of Fame is located adjacent to the Omni Hotel in the Centennial Olympic Park area of downtown Atlanta near the Georgia Dome, Georgia World Congress Center, Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca-Cola. The Hall will feature historic and contemporary artifacts, interactive multimedia displays, children’s activities, a 4K/3D theater featuring a film on the history and excitement of college football, a retail store and a 45-yard indoor football field all under one roof. Furthermore, the new attraction will have 50,000 square-feet of usable event space. The indoor Playing Field can accommodate approximately 700 people for a sit-down meal, and up to 1,200 people for a reception or catered event. The “Quad” and “Hall of Fame” special event spaces have almost 7,000 and 4,000 square feet of flexible space respectively; and the Game Day Theater, that features 4K/3D technology, can accommodate 150 people for corporate meetings and presentations.

“As a partner with the College Football Hall of Fame, it’s our goal to offer groups, conventions and leisure guests a memorable experience while providing a high level of service,” said Gary Froeba, regional vice president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “From a meetings and conventions standpoint, the Hall of Fame is a terrific addition to a city that already touts the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca-Cola as unique venues and attractions.”

“The food, beverage and concessions at the Hall of Fame will complement the celebration of college football,” said Scott Stuckey, general manager for the Omni Hotel at CNN Center. “We have an elite culinary and catering services team dedicated to serving the Hall of Fame, and guests will find creative offerings including ‘tailgate’ food found at college stadiums around the country.”
