To keep up-to-date with the needs of today's travellers, Marriott is investing $1.2bn (£600m) in renovations to select hotels across the world, including properties in the Middle East, the UK, Continental Europe, Asia/Pacific and the Caribbean/Latin America.
”We want our guests to enjoy a lodging experience that reflects the heritage of the hotel and its locale while incorporating the most current technology and amenities,” said president and managing director of international lodging, Ed Fuller.
”Travellers want hotels that are innovative and stylish and that provide a sense of place and time,” he added. ”We are building on a number of recent iconic additions to our portfolio, such as The Shelbourne in Dublin [pictured] and the Rive Gauche Hotel in Paris which will debut shortly as the Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel & Conference Centre.”
Properties to benefit from upgrades include 15 Renaissance- and Courtyard-branded hotels in Continental Europe in locations such as Vienna, Zurich, Amsterdam, Paris, Budapest, Hamburg, Moscow, Cologne and Prague. Eleven country club hotels throughout England, Scotland and Wales, in addition to 14 other UK properties, will also be renovated ” including London”s Grosvenor House (click here to read more).
In the Asia/Pacific region, the selected hotels are the 602-room JW Marriott Hong Kong, the JW Marriott Bangkok and in Australia the Brisbane Marriott. Two resorts in Hawaii, the Wailea and Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, will gain improved guest rooms and leisure facilities.
Only one property in the Middle East is included in the project - the vast 1,124-room Cairo Marriott Hotel in Egypt - where improvements have already been made to all guest rooms and public spaces.
