On the corner of Cesar Chavez and San Jacinto, you can find the site for a new 613-room hotel, a new Marriott Downtown. Made to compliment its sister hotel the J.W. Marriott, the new hotel will include a massive pool deck and over 60,000 feet of meeting space. The hotel will have deck areas for guests to enjoy views of Lady Bird Lake, downtown Austin and the State Capitol building. The 31-story Marriott will feature a few bars and restaurants, too.
The new development is currently under construction with a planned opening in Summer of 2020. The Hotel will have an amazing deck and rooftop pool area, event space and an exhibit hall. The location of the site is within walking distance of the Austin Convention Center. Sources say the Convention Center downtown may be expanding, and may even potentially connect to the new Marriott via a Skybridge. Keep your eyes open for the new Marriott Hotel going up downtown, with a proposed opening in 2020.
