The TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database shows that Marriott International’s prolific brand has 84 schemes on the go, including dozens in the US and Chinese markets.

Courtyard by Marriott has no fewer than 84 developments and 15,539 rooms globally on its books, according to our dedicated researchers.

Seizing opportunities in the US and China

Marriott International is headquartered in Maryland, so perhaps it’s no surprise to see that the hospitality giant’s rapidly growing the Courtyard by Marriott brand across the US, where it currently has 20 properties and 2,672 keys in the pipeline. What’s striking, however, is that this famous flag is also expanding exceptionally quickly in the People’s Republic, with 18 projects and 4,001 rooms planned here.

The third biggest market for Courtyard by Marriott on a country-by-country basis is Saudi Arabia, which remains firmly committed to its flagship Vision 2030 programme to diversify the economy and reduce the reliance on oil revenues. At present, six hotels accounting for 1,392 rooms are being planned across the Kingdom.

APAC and North America also dominate our regional breakdown table. The former leads the way courtesy of its tally of 35 schemes with 7,519 rooms, well ahead of North America’s 25 projects and 3,565 keys. Next up is Europe (12 properties, 2,020 rooms), followed by the Middle East (ten hotels, 2,095 keys) and Latin America (two projects, 340 rooms).

Steady growth for Courtyard by Marriott

Our data suggests that Courtyard by Marriott will build up its footprint pretty steadily over the next couple of years. In total, 28 projects with 5,400 rooms are expected to complete this year, while a further 20 schemes and 3,520 keys will be ready next year.

We’re then forecasting a drop to just eight openings and 1,351 rooms in 2024, although it’s likely that more newbuilds and conversions will be added to the system nearer the time. And 28 properties with 5,268 keys have been pencilled in for launch from 2025 onwards.

Focusing in on a pair of exciting newbuilds

Both of the Courtyard by Marriott schemes that we’ve decided to take a closer look at are newbuilds due to launch in the first quarter of this year.

First up is Courtyard by Marriott Paris Creteil, a 112-room four-star property located next to the La Maison du Handball complex in the Créteil area of the French capital. The hotel, which is due to open in February 2022, will feature a lobby, a bar-restaurant, modular seminar rooms capable of hosting up to 45 delegates, a fitness area and secure private parking. Its architectural design is being overseen by International d’Architecture, while interiors are the work of HAT Design.

Secondly, we have Courtyard by Marriott Colombo, which we’re anticipating will launch in March 2022. As well as having 164 rooms and suites, it’ll boast an all-day dining restaurant, a lobby lounge complete with a quick-bites menu and full-service bar, a 24-hour fitness centre, an external swimming pool and well-equipped meeting rooms. The property is designed to attract both business and leisure guests looking for a comfortable and convenient accommodation option in the heart of Sri Lanka’s largest city.

Many TOPHOTELNEWS articles draw on exclusive information from the TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database. This subscription-based product includes details of thousands of hotel projects around the world, along with the key decision-makers behind them. Please note, our data may differ from records held by other organisations. Generally, the database focuses on four- and five-star schemes of significant scale; tracks projects in either the vision, pre-planning, planning, under-construction, pre-opening or newly opened phase; and covers newbuilds, extensions, refurbishments and conversions.
