waldrop+nichols studio designs guestrooms, public areas of Omni Louisville

The Omni Louisville is a new-build hotel expected to open March 2018 in the downtown area.

Dallas-based interior design firm waldrop+nichols studio designed the guestrooms and public areas of the Omni Louisville, a new-build hotel expected to open March 2018 in the downtown area.

The design concept for the property will showcase elements that will blend the heritage, culture and characteristics of the city of Louisville. The lobby, for example, will have a reinterpretation of bridge architecture and pendants fashioned from neon, a Louisville legacy, with local colloquialisms.

Omni Louisville will have three restaurants that will showcase various aspects of local culture. Celebrating the history and tradition of American thoroughbred racing, Bob’s Steak & Chop House will have vintage trophies and textiles inspired by jockey’s silk uniforms. Three Meal restaurant will have a glass and iron entry door, an expression of the city’s wrought-iron legacy.
