Marriott International has announced it will develop a 150-room Courtyard by Marriott Lima, under a management agreement with Inversiones La Rioja.
The company already owns the JW Marriott Lima in the nearby Miraflores district and the new JW Marriott Cusco, set to open in 2013.
The Courtyard by Marriott Lima, the brand’s first in Peru, will be ideally located in the San Isidro district, one of the most important municipalities in Lima, near to offices, restaurants and retail and adjacent to Parque Murillo and an upscale shopping mall currently under construction.
“We have 18 Courtyards operating and 11 in the pipeline in the region, and the brand has done particularly well in Mexico and Central America,” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, chief development officer for Marriott International in the Caribbean and Latin America.
“We are happy to see interest for this upper moderate hotel brand in South America, where we consider strong growth demand in this segment.”
The high-rise urban Courtyard Lima will offer the brand’s signature “refreshing business” lobby, featuring bright contemporary design, innovative technology and flexible space.
A casual restaurant will be open for breakfast, with a limited menu for lunch and dinner as well as catering for small meetings.
“We are very pleased with our relationship with Marriott International and their performance at the JW in Lima.
“We are excited about our hotel’s opening next year in Cusco and felt Lima needed a quality midmarket product,” said Alfonso Brazzini, president of Inversiones La Rioja,
“Courtyard by Marriott seems like a perfect combination,” he concluded.
