Two hotels under the Marriott brand and a Holiday Inn are coming to Haltom City, which is quickly changing after the North Tarrant Express was completed.

Construction will start in 2019 on the Aloft and TownPlace Suites hotels, part of the Marriott brand, and work will start soon on a Holiday Inn, city officials said Tuesday. The Holiday Inn, developed by Haltom Hospitality, should open in August 2019 east of Haltom Road at the intersection of Old Denton Road and Loop 820. A restaurant will also be developed near the Holiday Inn.

The Aloft and TownPlace hotels, developed by Chase Hospitality, will be built on the northeast side of Loop 820 and Beach Street, assistant city manager Rex Phelps said.

Phelps said he expects the hotels to pave the way for more restaurants and retail. The development is a boost for Haltom City, where the median household income of $45,767 is 24 percent lower than Tarrant County’s.

In addition, construction is underway on the High Pointe subdivision at the northwest corner of Haltom Road and Loop 820. It will feature 225 homes priced from $290,000 to $400,000 and 850 luxury apartments, Phelps said.

The hotels will offer different experiences for travelers. The Aloft caters to millennials with open spaces for socializing, a bar with speciality cocktails and rooms with spa showers. The TownPlace is an extended stay hotel with full kitchens.

Two families are restoring the historic Haltom Theater where there are plans for live concerts, movies, and professional wrestling.
