Marriott International Inc. has announced the development of the 198-room Courtyard by Marriott Setif, Algeria, under management agreement with ownership group Prom-Bati SPA. The hotel will be part of the Park Mall mixed use development, located in Setif, a city in central Algeria.
The Courtyard by Marriott Setif and the Courtyard by Marriott Algiers, announced previously, will both open in 2014.
Marriott International’s first hotel in Algeria, the Renaissance Tlemcen, opened in 2011, and in 2014 the company will open four others in one complex – the Algiers Marriott, Algiers Marriott Executive Apartments, Courtyard by Marriott Algiers and Residence Inn by Marriott Algiers – followed by the Courtyard by Marriott Setif.
The 198-room Courtyard by Marriott property will offer the brand’s signature “refreshing business” lobby. The redefined area is said to “allow guests more control and choice over their stay, with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing.”
The hotel will also have a casual restaurant as well as a lobby lounge. On the third floor will be 6,896 square feet of meeting space. Other guest amenities will include a prayer room, fitness center and pool, business center, room service and gift shop.
Each guest room, including 109 standard rooms, 37 larger rooms and 52 suites and junior suites, will be equipped with flat-panel TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access and a functional work area with a multi-level desk. The centerpiece of the living area is a loveseat sofa that also doubles as a pullout bed.
