Marriott to Open 4 New Hotels in Mexico
- Nov 28, 2016
Mexico City, Mexico—Marriott International announced its plans to open four new hotels in Mexico, adding to its existing portfolio of 70 properties in the area. The company operates more than 200 hotels in the Caribbean and Latin American region, spanning 20 brands in 33 countries.
Marriott is meeting the growing demand in the full-service segment in Mexico with the signing of the Westin Puebla. Owned by Ideurban and managed by Marriott, the hotel is slated to open in the second half of 2018. The property will join Westin’s portfolio of hotels throughout the country, including Mexico City, Guadalajara and Cancun.
The Renaissance Hotels brand will be introduced to Mexico with the development of a 180-key hotel in Cancun. The 800-acre development includes 270 acres of ecological reserve, an 18-hole golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf, a 200-slip marina, some 5,000 residential units, 115 retail outlets, a restaurant and cinema. The new-build property will break ground within Puerto Cancun, between Cancun’s Hotel Zone and its downtown area.
Aloft Puebla will join the two existing Aloft hotels in Guadalajara and Cancun. Located in Angelopolis, the 100-key property will include office spaces, residences, restaurants, shops, free Wi-Fi and the renowned brand gym.
The 168-key AC Hotel by Marriott Monterrey will be developed within a mixed-use project called Distrito Armida in a high-end neighborhood of Monterrey known as Valle Oriente.
“We are very excited to continue growing our reach in Latin America with brands as diverse as Renaissance, AC Hotels by Marriott, Westin and Aloft,” Arne Sorenson, president & CEO of Marriott International, said in a statement. “These new projects are driven by a solid increase in the demand for business and leisure travel to this dynamic part of the world. They also reaffirm our commitment to delivering high-quality hotel development projects and maintaining investor confidence in our innovative brands.”
Seventeen hotels have been signed into the Marriott’s Caribbean and Latin America development pipeline so far in 2016, totaling nearly 2,500 hotel rooms. By 2022, the company is planning to open 38 new additional properties.
