Marriott International Continues Expansion in Latin America with the Signing of Four New Hotels in Mexico
Marriott International has announced the signing of four new hotels in Mexico as a result of a solid increase in the demand for business and leisure travel to Latin America. Three new hotels are under construction and are expected to open in 2017 and 2018. The 168-room project AC Hotel by Marriott Monterrey will be developed within a mixed-use project called Distrito Armida, located in a high-end neighborhood of Monterrey known as Valle Oriente.
Located in Angelopolis, Aloft Puebla will bring the vibrant style, technology and innovation of this brand to one of Mexico’s leading industrial cities. The complex will include office space, residences, restaurants, shops, as well as other hotels and will be close to major hospitals and universities.
Additionally, together with Grupo Diestra, Marriott’s largest full-service franchise partner in the Caribbean and Latin America, Marriott prepares to introduce the Renaissance Hotels brand to Mexico with the development of a Renaissance hotel in Cancun. The Renaissance Cancun will comprise 180 rooms and approximately 445 square meters of indoor meeting space.
The fourth hotel signed by Marriott was already managed by the hotel group but owned by IDEURBAN. The Westin Puebla will be designed by renowned architectural firm TEN Arquitectos, led by internationally acclaimed architect Enrique Norten. The hotel is set to open under the Westin brand in the second half of 2018.
Arne Sorenson, President and CEO of Marriott International, Inc., announced the signing of four hotels in the country as part of a visit to Mexico. Following an aggressive expansion strategy in one of the region’s key markets, Marriott expects to add the new properties to its existing portfolio of 70 hotels. The company operates more than 200 hotels in the Caribbean and Latin American region, spanning 20 brands in 33 countries and territories.
