WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - The City of Wichita Falls announced on Tuesday afternoon Gatehouse Capital Corporation has received formal approval for its franchise application from Marriott International.
The 150-room Delta by Marriott Hotel will be built on the grounds of the MPEC.
Gatehouse Capital is the city's development partner for this full-service hotel and conference center project and is still negotiating acceptable terms for the project to come to fruition.
Gatehouse and the city were originally working on a franchise deal with DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel but changed directions to pursue a Delta by Marriott franchise.
Delta by Marriott broke ground in April for the development of a Hotel and Conference Center in Watters Park in Allen, Texas.
