Downtown Houston is bustling with builds, from new skyscrapers to much-needed residential units. None, however, can boast any features quite like the rooftop lazy river and infinity edge pool, terrace and water features showcased at the Marriott Marquis.
After building the tallest and largest infinity pool in the world (Marina Bay Sands), Natare Corporation decided it was time to break another industry barrier.
The Marriott Marquis is a 1,000 room hotel and was one of the many projects in Houston scurrying to open before the 2017 Super Bowl. The hotel will feature the FIRST EVER rooftop lazy river in the shape of Texas, which will be the crowning jewel on this $335 million dollar project.
How It Works:
Natare’s custom water jets will leisurely propel swimmers around on inflatable tubes for a relaxing and entertaining experience.
When swimmers start approaching the western tip of the Texas map (where El Paso is located), they will be able to overlook the roof’s edge before water jets shoot them southeast along the path of the Rio Grande.
In the center of the Texas lazy river, children will be able to play in the water features of a circular splash pad, 20 feet in diameter. The stainless steel “bowl” of the splash pad will be lined with stone pavers, through which water will drain back into the filtration system.
Aside from the rooftop lazy river and 100,000 square feet of meeting space, the Marriott Marquis Houston will include an impressive 77 ft long Natare infinity pool, a separate pavilion with a view of Houston’s Discovery Green, a large spa, a kids splash zone and a sky-bridge that will connect to the George R. Brown Convention Center.
