  This week the 364-room Courtyard by Marriott Shanghai Xujiahui not only became the seventh Courtyard hotel in China (with two additional Courtyard properties already under construction) but also the brand’s 800th-hotel globally. This makes Courtyard by Marriott the world’s 12th largest hotel brand with locations in 28 countries.

According to Geoff Garside, Marriott International’s executive vice president for Asia-Pacific, the company expects to open more than 200 additional Courtyard hotels worldwide over the next three years. “This year alone, 60 Courtyard properties will join our portfolio including five in India and our eighth Courtyard in China which will be located in Hangzhou.”

Included are 105 executive rooms and suites and an executive level that provides an array of complimentary amenities such as continental breakfast and all-day refreshments, cocktails and snacks in the early evening, a computer work station with internet access and daily two-hour use of the executive floor meeting room.

For dining, the Courtyard by Marriott Shanghai Xujiahui features Courtyard’s vibrant, new Asian all-day restaurant concept, MoMo Café, which combines local cuisine with western favorites. For those in a hurry, the hotel offers MoMo-to-Go, an all-day convenience stand that is fully stocked with pastries, sandwiches and beverages.

Recreational amenities include a fitness center equipped with high-tech cardiovascular work-out equipment and an indoor swimming pool.

For small conferences and social events, the Courtyard by Marriott Shanghai Xujiahui offers 8,396 square feet of meeting space, including 13 meeting rooms with the largest accommodating up to 120 people.
