Courtyard by Marriott announces new prototype for Europe

 Marriott International has unveiled a new European design model for its upper-moderate Courtyard by Marriott brand, as it announced plans to further grow the brand across Europe.  The first two hotels to debut the new design will be the 194-room Courtyard by Marriott Aberdeen and the 230-room room Courtyard by Marriott Cologne. Both hotels are scheduled to open in 2013.

The Courtyard by Marriott European prototype model is based on a 170-room, six level hotel situated on a 62,807 square foot site, with a design that may be scaled up or down to meet market or site conditions.

For the guestrooms, guests are able to create the room they need with a flexible furniture layout. Guestrooms boast a 42-inch LCD HD television, a work space, task lighting and multiple, accessible outlets. The spa-like bathroom features a light-reflecting frosted glass door and corner wall highlighted with teak accents.

For the public space, throughout the hotel, indigenous materials such as European stones and woods will be utilized. The lobby offers flexible seating, an interactive GoBoard screen featuring the latest news, weather and local information, and a 24-hour market for grab-and-go salads and sandwiches. Each Courtyard will also feature an all-day bistro restaurant.

In addition to the new European prototype, the brand will unveil a new Asian inspired design for the Chinese traveler later this year.
