Marriott International will roll out six new hotels across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region in the next three years. They include the 78-room Residence Inn by Marriott Juffair in Bahrain - marking the first Residence Inn by Marriott regionally - and the 495-room Ritz-Carlton Riyadh, both due to open this year. Other developments include a double move on Algiers, with a 247-room Courtyard by Marriott and 147-room Residence Inn due to open by 2014.
The region will also see a 335-room Courtyard by Marriott Cairo Mirage City (opening 2012) and the Ritz-Carlton Rabat (2013). Marriott currently has 43 hotels under development or construction in the next five years, which will swell its overall MENA portfolio to 74 properties.
