July 21, 2013 - Marriott International announced the opening of the 140-room Courtyard by Marriott Leon at the Poliforum, expanding the brand’s roster of Mexico properties to nine and solidifying the country’s position as the most important Latin American market for Marriott’s leading mid-tier hotel brand. The stunning hotel is located conveniently near the Poliforum Leon Convention and Exhibition Center, Leon Airport, Leon Stadium, Explora Science Center, Centro Max Shopping Center and the city’s main industrial parks. Recreational amenities at the hotel include an outdoor pool. 

“From the refreshing, open business lobbies to our modern and spacious guest rooms, both the Courtyard by Marriott Leon at the Poliforum and the Courtyard by Marriott Toluca Tollocan offer business and leisure guests excellent space and flexibility to optimize their stay,” said Lita Aguirre, General Manager of the Courtyard by Marriott Leon.

Like all new Courtyard by Marriott properties, the Leon properties are entirely smoke-free and feature the brand’s signature refreshing business lobby, providing travelers with free Wi-Fi and spaces to work or relax with a variety of flexible seating options. The hotel offers modern, comfortable rooms, including rooms for guests with disabilities, with contemporary workspaces, safe deposit boxes, LCD televisions and deluxe bedding. Centro Bistro, the brand’s premiere restaurant, offers a flavorful menu with local and international cuisine and is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails. Room service is available 24 hours a day, as is The Market for quick, on-the-go meals. Complimentary high-speed Internet is provided in all guest rooms, meeting rooms and business centers, and the property’s state-of-the-art fitness centers.

“Mexico’s growing middle class and booming economy have generated tremendous demand for mid-priced hotel properties,” said Craig Smith, President of the Caribbean & Latin America at Marriott International. “The steady expansion of the Courtyard by Marriott brand in Mexico validates the recognition of the brand’s top-notch style, service and comfort at an affordable price.”

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Courtyard is Marriott International’s largest brand in terms of hotels and also has the greatest portfolio presence in Mexico within the company. In total, Courtyard by Marriott operates 21 hotels with 3,270 rooms in 12 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean and has another 10 hotels in the pipeline and scheduled to open in the next three years.

The development pipeline for Courtyard by Marriott properties in Mexico includes the 130-room Courtyard by Marriott Hermosillo, slated to open its doors in 2014; the 120-room Courtyard by Marriott Queretaro in 2015; and the 130-room Courtyard by Marriott Los Cabos in 2015.

Other Mexican Courtyard by Marriott properties include the 153-room Courtyard by Marriott Toluca Airport, 200-room Courtyard by Marriott Cancun Airport, 292-room Courtyard by Marriott Mexico City Airport, 129-room Courtyard by Marriott Monterrey, 175-room Courtyard by Marriott Monterrey San Jeronimo, 154-room Courtyard by Marriott Puebla and 155-room Courtyard by Marriott San Luis Potosi.
