PLANO (KRLD) - A new state of the art hotel is coming next to the Plano event center. 

The Plano City Council authorized the City Manager to enter into a lease agreement with Tirgo, LLC for approximately 5 acres of land adjacent to Plano Event Center for the purpose of building a Radisson Hotel.

Robin Reeves with the Parks and Recreation department says this will make them more competitive in booking larger events.

"An event center without a hotel adjacent to, or connected to it, really limits the options of the events you can get there," he says.

The hotel will have 175 rooms, a full-service restaurant, business center, exercise facilities, and meeting space complete with the latest technology.

Reeves says this will all come at no cost to taxpayers and is expected to be open by the spring of 2020.
