Having launched its new hotel design concept for European market in Courtyard Aberdeen Airport Hotel, Marriott announced the launch of its second Courtyard-branded hotel in Scotland. This time that will be a hotel in Edinburgh and it will greet its first guests in the beginning of 2016. The hotel is conveniently located in the central part of the city, so it will be a wonderful choice for both business and leisure travellers.
Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh will occupy the building that consists of three adjoining Gregorian townhouses. One of these houses is home to Robert Stevenson, who was a famous Scottish civil engineer and the grandfather of Robert Louis Stevenson, the author of the famous novel “Treasure Island”. The building was standing empty for many years, and now it will be finally used and converted into a hotel. The historic building will house only a part of the hotel, while the rest of it will be located in a new building constructed nearby.
The hotel will feature 240 spacious and comfortable guestrooms made mostly in energising Mediterranean color palette. Interior is mostly made in elegant locally inspired style. To the service of guests the hotel offers such facilities as all-day Bistro Restaurant, a fitness centre, and a 49 sq. ft. large multi-functional meeting room with support of latest technologies. Guests will also like free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
This is the fifth hotel by Marriott in or around the city of Edinburgh. The hotel’s portfolio includes Residence Inn by Marriott in the central part of the city, Edinburgh Marriott Hotel near the airport, The Glasshouse by Autograph Collection, and Dalmahoy Marriott Hotel & Country Club.
