Marriott Opens Third Courtyard Hotel in Scotland
- Jan 09, 2017
Scotland—Marriott International recently announced the upcoming addition of the 240-key Courtyard Edinburgh to its portfolio in Scotland. The flagship property has been part of a nearly $36.5 million (£30 million) restoration project to combine both heritage and contemporary style.
The renovation mixes efficient design and contemporary interiors to create a modernized hotel experience. The Lantern Room bar and restaurant will serve local fare with a modern twist. The restaurant and bar takes its inspiration from Scotland’s sea-faring history. A vibrant and modern space to meet for coffee or cocktails, working lunch, pre-theatre dinner or late night supper, it also extends on to an outdoor terrace where drinks will be served. Additional amenities include free Wi-Fi, a boardroom for up to 16 people, designated media pods, a 24/7 market and a fitness center.
The hotel is owned and has been developed by Edinburgh-based Chris Steward Group, which specializes in complex urban regeneration and heritage projects. The hotel will be managed and operated by Redefine BDL Hotels.
Courtyard Edinburgh is the third Courtyard by Marriott in Scotland and follows the opening of Courtyard Glasgow Airport earlier in 2016, and Courtyard Aberdeen Airport, which opened in 2013.
