BETHESDA, Md. — Marriott International, Inc. has announced plans to open a 171-room Courtyard by Marriott and 157-suite Residence Inn by Marriott in Calgary this month.
The Courtyard hotel offers free Wi-Fi in the lobby, a business library with computers, an indoor swimming pool, 8,000 square feet of meeting space, a fitness centre, a guest laundry, a business centre and a 24/7 shop.
“From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what business travellers want from a hotel,” said Janis Milham, vice-president, Global Brand Manager, Courtyard by Marriott. “Guests want more control and choice with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing. We redefined the Courtyard lobby so it invites guests to get out of their rooms to work, socialize or for entertainment, whether travelling alone or with colleagues.”
The new Residence Inn features suites with fully-equipped kitchens, a fitness centre and a complimentary hot breakfast buffet.
“We are pleased to introduce Residence Inn hotels in the Calgary area,” said Brian King, senior vice-president, Select Service and Extended Stay Brand Management, Marriott International. “This new hotel was designed to be a home away from home and provides a residential atmosphere and spacious accommodations for guest comfort.”
