Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Wednesday, 11 March 2009

The first franchised Courtyard by Marriott property in France is scheduled to open in late 2010 under an agreement reached between Marriott and Societe Hoteliere de Boulogne.

The 115-room, moderate-tiered Courtyard by Marriott Paris Boulogne will be located in the re-development of an historic building that was originally owned by the Banque de France at 114 Route de la Reine in the city center of Boulogne-Paris.

The original edifice will house the hotels public areas including an open, spacious lobby, bar and restaurant; 336 square meters of conference space, a fitness facility and some guest rooms. An addition will be built behind and above the existing building, including three additional floors of guest rooms.

We are excited by this agreement with Societe Hoteliere de Boulogne which is a subsidiary of Cofitem-Cofimur, said Arne Sorenson, Marriotts chief financial officer and president of continental European lodging. They have a well-regarded reputation for managing branded hotels and we are confident that this hotel, in this location under the management of Cofitem-Cofimur will be tremendously successful.

Accommodations at Courtyards offer plush bed and bath linens; distinctly defined rest, work, relaxation and grooming areas; a large work desk with bright lighting and ergonomic chair; flat screen television; high-speed internet and voice mail access; electronic safes; iron and ironing board and a coffee/tea maker.

For dining, the Courtyard by Marriott Paris Boulogne will feature Courtyards vibrant Continental all-day restaurant concept, Oleo Pazzo, which combines local cuisine with western favorites. For those in a hurry, the hotel will offer the Marketplace, an all-day, Grab and Go convenience stand that is fully stocked with pastries, sandwiches and beverages.

When opened, the Courtyard by Marriott Paris Boulogne will be the third Courtyard hotel in Paris, and ninth Marriott International-branded hotel in Paris. Three additional hotels are under construction, including the Renaissance Paris Arc dTriomphe, the Courtyard by Marriott Paris Pleyel-St. Denis and the Courtyard by Marriott Paris Arcueil.
