Though there are numerous hotels being constructed in Houston right now, the only one that's really guaranteed to get a ton of visitors is this second convention center hotel, which should be starting construction any time now that agreements have been completed.

With the necessary agreements finalized, work can begin on Houston’s second convention center hotel, which will be next to the George R. Brown Convention Center.

The city of Houston, Houston First Corp. and Houston-based Rida Development Corp., the hotel’s developer, said Tuesday the development agreement between Houston First and Rida has been finalized.

Houston First’s financing — which will fund the acquisition of the hotel site, construction of an adjacent parking garage and other improvements to the convention district — is also complete, and Houston First has been authorized to transfer the hotel site's land to Rida.
