Last November Marriott unveiled its new prototype for the Courtyard by Marriott brand in Europe. Boasting a contemporary and fresh new design <>and enhanced room functionality, the new Courtyard model is designed to be more locally relevant and appeal to the European traveller, as well as be more economically viable for owners to build and operate. These three hotels will be among the first to debut the innovative new design, in addition to the Courtyard by Marriott Aberdeen and the Courtyard by Marriott Cologne, both scheduled to open in 2013.

“We are thrilled to announce these new additions to the Courtyard by Marriott portfolio in Europe,” said Amy McPherson, president and managing director of Marriott International in Europe. “We are confident that our new Courtyard model will better meet the needs of our guests and see tremendous potential to continue to expand the new prototype throughout Europe.”

Courtyard by Marriott Le Bourget, France
The Courtyard Le Bourget will open in 2013 under a management agreement with Le Relais de Segur SNC. The 120-room hotel will be built inside Europe’s leading private aviation airport in Le Bourget, world renowned for hosting the bi-annual International Paris Air Show.

Courtyard by Marriott Gdynia, Poland
The 175-room Courtyard Gdynia will open in 2014 under a franchise agreement with Scandinavian Hospitality Management. The hotel will be located in a mixed-use waterfront development in central Gdynia. A seaport city located on the south coast of the Baltic Sea, Gdynia’s economy continues to be bolstered by a growing shipping industry.

Courtyard by Marriott Amsterdam Atlas Park, The Netherlands
Also expected to open in 2014 under a franchise agreement with Scandinavian Hospitality Management, the 170-room Courtyard Amsterdam Atlas Park will be located adjacent to the Amsterdam Arena football stadium, home of AFC Ajax, Amsterdam’s biggest football club.

Guestrooms of the three hotels will be boast clean lines, natural light, and a mediterranean color palette, thoughtfully designed to be a haven for business travellers where they can be productive and restore their energy while on the road. In addition each room will feature ample work space, task lighting and multiple, accessible outlets making plugging in easy.

Extraordinary thought was put in to the public space of the new model to support the business traveller’s needs for dining, meeting and socializing. Both stylish and functional, the contemporary lobby offers flexible seating, an interactive GoBoard™ screen featuring the latest news, weather and local information and a 24-hour market for grab-and-go salads and sandwiches. Each Courtyard will also feature an all-day bistro restaurant with menu items adapted to local tastes and demand.
