Courtyard by Marriott expands UK portfolio with Luton Airport location
Marriott International has announced a new addition to its Courtyard by Marriott portfolio with the opening of a property at London Luton airport.
The 250-bedroom hotel occupies a first-class location just minutes’ walk from the passenger terminal.
“We are delighted to welcome this property to the Courtyard by Marriott portfolio,” said John Licence, vice president premium and select brands at Marriott International Europe.
“The prime airport location offers both business and leisure travellers alike a fresh, contemporary space in which to rest and re-energise before their onward journey.”
The hotel, managed by UK-based hotel management company RBH, was built using a state-of-the-art modular-build process, which saw rooms built at Polish firm Polcom’s factory in Gdansk before being transported to the UK ready for construction.
The latest Courtyard by Marriott design is brought to life through refreshed interiors featuring contemporary and efficient design that mixes a natural colour palette with yellow and blue accents to create a casual yet vibrant atmosphere.
“This hotel is our portfolio’s third Courtyard by Marriott, and our first in Luton,” said Helder Pereira, chief executive of RBH.
“We are proud to bring our expertise to the town’s newest hotel, which is our third opening in partnership with Polcom.
“We look forward to developing this relationship further as part of our long-term growth strategy.”
Courtyard by Marriott now has seven properties in the UK and is slated to increase its portfolio with the addition of five further hotels in key cities such as Glasgow, London and Oxford by end of 2020, offering business travellers a continually elevated experience that meets the generational shift in how guests work and travel today.
