Construction crews are currently putting the finishing touches on the Marriot Marquis Houston. One of the standout features of the hotel is a rooftop terrace that features a lazy river pool in the shape of Texas.

According to KVUE, the hotel has completed roughly 75 percent of the pool. It will likely be open by next April.
