London - July 18, 2013 – Marriott International revealed the new European-inspired design of its upper-moderate Courtyard by Marriott brand with the opening of the 194-room Courtyard by Marriott Aberdeen Airport Hotel in the United Kingdom.  As the first example of the design model announced in 2011, the property is a welcome addition to the brand’s offering of 45 hotels in Europe and more than 900 hotels worldwide.    

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.  The Courtyard Aberdeen Airport Hotel is the first to debut the new look with the following hotels opening in the next couple of years:

  • 230-room Courtyard Cologne, Germany 
  • 120-room Courtyard Le Bourget, France 
  • 175-room Courtyard Gdynia, Poland 
  • 170-room Courtyard Amsterdam Atlas Park, The Netherlands 
  • 135-room Courtyard Ulyanovsk, Russia 

“We are excited to welcome the Courtyard Aberdeen Airport Hotel to our portfolio in the UK,” said Amy McPherson, president and managing director for Marriott International in Europe.  “We are confident that the new Courtyard European design will better meet the needs of our guests and help fuel expansion of the brand across Europe.”

The Courtyard Aberdeen Airport Hotel is ideally located 5 minutes’ walk from Aberdeen airport and 6 miles from the city centre, with the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre also just a short distance away.  The hotel is the perfect launch-pad from which to enjoy Scotland’s beautiful beaches and walking trails as well as numerous golf courses and whisky distilleries.

The hotel’s 194 contemporary guestrooms feature clean lines, natural light and a Mediterranean colour palette.  Designed to promote productivity, the rooms are equipped with ample work space, task lighting and multiple, accessible outlets making plugging in easy.  Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel will make working and relaxing on guests’ own terms seamless.

The hotel’s spacious lobby is designed to support the business traveller’s needs for dining, meeting and socialising with flexible seating, an interactive GoBoard™ screen featuring the latest news, weather and local information and a 24-hour market.  The hotel also features an all-day Bistro Restaurant with menu items adapted to local tastes and demand, a 40 square metre meeting room, a business lounge and a gym.

Introduced in 1983 and now with over 900 hotels, Courtyard by Marriott is the 11th largest global hotel brand*. For more information, visit
