Marriott Brings Its Courtyard Brand to Malaysia

News Marriott expands in Malaysia by bringing its Courtyard by Marriott brand to this Asian country. This will be a new hotel in Penang. It will particularly appeal to leisure tourists as the new hotel enjoys a fantastic location in George Town, a UNESCO-listed site.

Comfortably nestled along the Jalan Macalister, the new Penang hotel will feature 199 rooms. The management team promises to deliver the best hotel experience to guests of the new Courtyard by Marriott. This is going to be the 17th brand by Marriott in Malaysia. The choice of the city for the first Courtyard hotel was not random. Located on Peninsular Malaysia, Penang is recognized as “The Pearl of the Orient”. This is a great destination for both beach recreation and sightseeing. Penang has a rich history, and George Town, the heart of the city and a UNESCO World Heritage zone, is another proof of this. In Penang, old Chinese and Indian temples and monasteries peacefully coexist with mosques and modern skyscrapers.

The Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Penang offers panoramic 360° views of the Straits of Malacca and Georgetown. Each of the spacious rooms and suites comes with modern amenities and up-to-date equipment. An ergonomic work area makes the rooms suitable for both business and leisure guests. A business center in the lobby helps guests to stay efficient and meet their colleagues or partners.

The hotel’s dining venues include Penang Kitchen, a chic all-day dining restaurant that offers a menu based on Malay, Chinese, Indian, and Nyonya cuisine dishes, and Gin Library the first distillery-themed bar on the island. Made in the Anglo-Indian design, the new bar will offer a selection of gin, whiskey, and other spirits, as well as alcoholic cocktails. The bar opens closer to the end of this year.

Guests who like to stay fit wherever they go will be pleased to visit the 24-hour fitness center. An outdoor infinity pool with the amazing view of Penang Hill is likely to become a magnet for all guests. Courtyard by Marriott will be suitable for various events and celebrations as it features a ballroom for up to 150 guests. Moreover, there are eight meeting rooms of different sizes and one VIP room. Each of the rooms comes with the up-to-date audio and visual equipment to cater needs of modern business travelers.
