Each room arrived at the site as a precast box completely furnished, with plumbing, lightening, furniture, including beds with linens, lamps with globes, TV set, wall to wall carpets, chairs and pictures on the wall-everything ready for the occupants when the structure opens for business. That's the Texas version of Habitat ‘67 in San Antonio. Each of the 496 rooms was cast in one piece of reinforced concrete at a casting yard seven miles from the building site. One of these rooms was delivered to the site every 20 minutes on low-slung trucks. The room was then picked up by a 300 ton crane, with a 270 foot boom, and hoisted to its place in the hotel structure. The hotel is a 21 story structure and two of these stories are below grade. The first four floors and the top floor are of traditional structural steel and concrete construction.
