Marriott International has opened two new Courtyard by Marriott hotels in France, the Courtyard Montpellier and Courtyard Paris Boulogne.
The 123-room Courtyard Montpellier is designed by star architect Jean Nouvel, and is located next to the City Hall and close range of shops and restaurants. Montpellier’s historical centre and local attractions such as the Fabre museum and Convention Centre are just a short tram-ride away. The hotel offers a Mediterranean experience at the Oleo Pazzo Restaurant with views over the Lez River, while the Design Bar in the heart of the lobby area offers a relaxed environment in which to enjoy drinks and snacks throughout the day. Guests can also take advantage of the heated outdoor pool, running track, and exercise room. Business needs are well catered for with an on-site business centre and five conference rooms accommodating up to 180 people.
The 113-room Courtyard Paris Boulogne is situated just a 15 minute Metro ride from Paris city centre and its many attractions. The hotel is at the center of three of Paris’ most thriving business districts and features 200m² of multi-purpose meeting facilities for all manner of seminars and events as well as a roof-top terrace with a panoramic view over Paris. The Oleo Pazzo Restaurant boasts a sun-drenched summer terrace and the Cent Quatorze Bar is the perfect destination in which to wind down after a busy day in Paris.
““With the addition of these two new hotels, Marriott now operates 17 hotels in France,” said Amy McPherson, president and managing director of Marriott International in Europe. “As an essential part of our growth strategy and with the recent introduction of our Courtyard prototype in Europe, we see tremendous opportunity for expansion of the brand here, now 47 hotels strong across Europe.”
Designed to provide options and flexibility for business travelers, both hotels boast spacious, stylish and comfortable guest rooms that offer large well-lit work desks, ergonomic chairs and coffee makers as well as a 24/7 market providing drinks and snacks around the clock. The hotels reflect the newly designed lobby spaces of the Courtyard by Marriott brand boasting large HD TVs, high speed internet, and Go Boards offering live news, weather, and sports information, enabling guests to stay connected in the comfort of the relaxing public spaces.
The Courtyard Montpellier and Courtyard Boulogne, along with more than 3,500 Marriott-affiliated hotels worldwide, participate in Marriott Rewards, the guest reward program that allows its more than 33 million members to earn points or airline miles for each pound spent during each stay.
