EBCO General Contractors, based in Cameron, is heading the facility’s construction. Project Supervisor Mike Hapanionek said Marriott will feature 107 rooms.
“All will include kitchens, and there will be some two-bedroom, two-bathroom suites,” Hapanionek said.
Marriott will be located at 109 Esplanade Drive in Portland. Construction crews are currently setting up underground plumbing and foundation at the site.
EBCO has constructed several similar facilities.
“We do a lot of hotels, primarily in Texas, including downtown Austin,” Hapanionek said. “But we do get out into bordering states, including Tennessee, in downtown Nashville. We also do a lot of Taco Bells and CEFCO gas stations.”
