Texas Lazy River

Texas Lazy River

Sometimes a pool design is so epic that it garners attention from major news sources. The Texas sized, Texas shaped lazy river at the Houston Marriott Marquis is no exception. Lazy rivers have been done at resorts before but never in the shape of Texas, and never 110 feet above street level. Measuring at 3.6 feet deep, the gentle current can move guests around the state at a rate of about 15 minutes. If straightened out, the Texas shape would extend 510 feet long. For guests that would rather swim than float, an infinity pool is located on the rooftop deck as well.

The unique water feature was completed in January – just in time to host the players and fans that traveled to Houston for Super Bowl LI. The hotel is conveniently located in downtown Houston, near Minute Maid Ballpark and the Toyota Center – where the Houston professional sports teams play.
