A full-service hotel and convention center is coming to Wichita Falls, TX. This project includes the design of a 7-story, 200-room Delta by Marriott Hotel and a 14,725 square foot Banquet Room. The entire Conference Center, which includes a pre-convention area and back-of-house space is approximately 36,000 square feet. The Delta by Marriott Hotel and Conference Center will be located on the grounds of the MPEC (Multi-Purpose Events Center) Facilities.
Highlights among the hotel amenities include a restaurant, bar/lounge, swimming pool, and a fitness center. The hotel will also serve as a home to the Wichita Falls Convention Center/Banquet Room, which will be operated by O’Reilly Hospitality Management. With this project, the City of Wichita Falls will now be able to compete for numerous larger conventions that require a full-service hotel in the vicinity of the meeting space where the conventions are held.
The facility will also provide a significant economic impact to the community as it brings in more out of town visitors with the additional conventions held. The total estimated economic impact over a 10-year period is $67,382,923, from a study done by CBRE Hotels, a company who specializes in hotel market feasibility and econometric studies. The projected is currently expected to begin construction in November of 2021.
