The Houston City Council today chose a proposal from RIDA Development Corp. and Houston First Corp. to build a 1,000-room Marriott Marquis that will be connected to the George R. Brown Convention Center. Construction will begin in 2014, aiming for an opening date in spring 2016. Details of the property's amenities have yet to be determined.
