Courtyard by Marriott arrives in Brazil

The 162-room Courtyard by Marriott Recife has officially opened its doors in the beautiful city of Recife in the northeastern state of Pernambuco, Brazil.
The hotel is only a short walk to the beach and has convenient access to the city’s best restaurants, shopping and cultural attractions. “The Courtyard brand is expanding across the world at a rapid pace and we’re thrilled to introduce this innovative brand to Brazil,” said Craig S. Smith, president of the Caribbean and Latin America at Marriott International. “With the opening of the Courtyard by Marriott in Recife, the brand now has a portfolio of 24 hotels in 11 countries in the Caribbean and Latin America, and we look forward to receiving more and more Brazilian guests as we expand our footprint in the country in the next few years.”

 The Courtyard by Marriott Recife offers complimentary high-speed Internet in guestrooms and public areas, so guests can stay connected while traveling, as well as large work desks in each room for a more peaceful work environment. One of the key elements of the Courtyard “refreshing business” lobby is the GoBoard®, which presents local information such as maps, weather, and news on a 55-inch LCD touch screen. Guests can utilize the screen for instant access to flight information, local airports, entertainment and local event information, as well as walking directions and have it all sent to their smart phones. The Courtyard by Marriott Recife will feature the brand’s signature “Bistro” that offers healthy food choices and a variety of International options.

As part of the Bistro, the hotel will also have an evening bar with specialty beverages. The hotel will also feature a complete fitness center, a 24 hour Market and four spacious meeting rooms totaling over 3.000 square feet of meeting space.
