Sugar Land, TX – Sugar Land City Council recently recognized the Houston Marriott Sugar Land for 16 years of business. It was the first full-service hotel of its kind in Fort Bend County when it opened in Sugar Land Town Square in 2003 and has since generated more than $200 million in revenue.
The Houston Marriott Sugar Land continues to thrive and contribute to the economic development of the city by attracting numerous visitors, meeting planners and conference attendees who generate both hotel occupancy and sales tax revenue to the city -- enabling the city to fund amenities that help Sugar Land maintain the second lowest tax rate in the state among cities its size.
The hotel has recently undergone a name change that was a strategic decision by the hotel to draw greater interest from potential conference and meeting planners to reflect the hotel’s strategic location in the greater Houston area.
“We are very excited about this change and feel that it will expose the hotel and city to a greater number of conventions, groups, social events and individual travelers,” said General Manager Noori Janjani. “This will translate to increased revenues and tax generation by our businesses for Town Square and the local area.”
“For more than a decade, the Houston Marriott Sugar Land has provided exceptional hotelier service to the Houston region and beyond,” said Mayor Joe Zimmerman. “The Marriott at Town Square has greeted thousands of visitors from around the world, providing a significant economic and cultural benefit that further establishes Sugar Land as a premier destination and economic powerhouse. Our City is proud to celebrate this milestone with them and recognize their contribution to our city and the region.”
The city is committed to its continued partnership with the Houston Marriott Sugar Land at Town Square to attract more visitors to the “Sweetest City in Texas – Sugar Land.”
