Marriott Marquis Convention Center Hotel


Marriott Marquis Convention Center Hotel | Houston, Texas
Client: RIDA Development Corporation

The Marriott Marquis Houston Convention Center Hotel is a game-changer in Houston’s convention district. Morris, a Huitt-Zollars company, provided architectural services for the 1.1 million-SF building that includes 1,000 guestrooms and 105,000 SF of meeting space linked by sky bridge to the George R. Brown Convention Center. Envisioned as a meeting destination and an urban resort, the Hotel features an extraordinary 90,000-SF indoor/outdoor amenity level 115 feet above street level. It includes a state of the art fitness center and spa, concierge lounge, infinity pool and pool bar, extensive outdoor function space, and a 550-foot ‘Texas’ lazy river surrounded by the Houston skyline. Soon after opening in the fall of 2016 the Marriott Marquis served as headquarters for the national football championship game.
