HOUSTON - Houston now has at least 2,350 hotel rooms coming by the time the city hosts the Superbowl in 2017.

The most buzzed about project is the 1,000-room Marriott Marquis. This $335 million hotel will be tied to the George R. Brown Convention Center, and is expected to help put Houston on the map for convention planners. Additionally, the project will include 100,000 sf of meeting space and 20,000 sf of ground floor retail.

Other new development projects include the 261-key Hyatt Place, a 225-room Hotel Alessandra, a 168-room Hampton Inn and a 132-key Homewood Suites.

Some properties are being completely redeveloped and rebranded, such as the 325-key JW Marriott, the 166-room SpringHill Suites, and the 215-key Holiday Inn.

While industry experts admit there is a severe shortage of hotel space in Houston, some worry the eight hotel projects in the works will bring too many rooms to the market place.
