North Texas hotels are working overtime to coming up with special events and creating special experiences for guests coming in for Super Bowl XLV.

As football fans scramble to be part of North Texas' first Super Bowl, hotels are filling up fast.

Benji Homsey, president of Z Resorts Management, said the game is an great economic boost for the hotel industry.

"Hotel ZaZa is sold out with the exception of two of our suites," he said. "We had a third party come in and buy out the hotel completely, and they will be hosting several invitation-only events over the four-day period."

Local hotels said they are working to create unique experiences for Super Bowl guests.

The Omni Fort Worth and Omni Mandalay hotels, which are hosting the competing teams, plan to bring in extra staff and extra entertainment, such as acoustical bands and DJs at night.

Homsey said ZaZa will host several hot events.

"I can definitely tell you it will be out-of-the-box and something that you won't want to miss," he said.

While hotels bookings are going quickly in Arlington, Dallas and Fort Worth, the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau said rooms are still available in other places in Dallas, Collin, Tarrant and Denton counties.
