First Courtyard by Marriott debuts in Melbourne…and it’s a walk in the park for guests
The contemporary Courtyard by Marriott brand is expanding its footprint in Australia with the opening of its first Melbourne hotel set for March 2022.
Located in Batman Street and adjacent to leafy Flagstaff Gardens, the 150-guestroom new-build 4-star hotel is the third Courtyard by Marriott in the country, joining sister properties in Brisbane and Sydney.
The trailblazing Courtyard brand was founded in the United States in 1983. It was the world’s first hotel built with business travellers in mind, identifying a gap in the market between premium hotels and affordable motel style lodging. The Courtyard brand has continuously evolved over the past three decades to keep at the forefront of technology and changing expectations of business travellers. It now has more than 1,200 locations across 60 countries and territories.
Owned by Ousia Properties Pty Ltd and architecturally designed by Skematics with interiors by DKO Architecture, Courtyard by Marriott Melbourne Flagstaff Gardens reflects the hotel brand’s reputation for sophistication and comfort with carefully considered design elements catering to both business and leisure travellers.
Courtyard by Marriott Melbourne Flagstaff Gardens General Manager Carolyn Smith said the arrival of the Courtyard by Marriott in Melbourne was an exciting milestone for the company and visitors to our city.
“Our guests are passionate, success-focused individuals who see travel as an opportunity for both professional and personal growth – they choose our hotel because they want to be able to work, exercise, eat well, connect, and be at their best,” she said.
“Courtyard’s modern, elevated décor, flexible workspaces, amenities, and ambiance all work together to deliver an experience that fuels and energises our guests and helps them get the job done.”
The hotel will house an all-day dining restaurant, street-facing café/bar and large fitness centre offering round-the-clock access. Flexible event spaces for corporate meetings and social gatherings will offer the latest in audio-visual equipment and unique settings, such as an expansive rooftop entertaining area overlooking stunning city views.
Courtyard by Marriott Melbourne Flagstaff Gardens is ideally located for guests to explore the city’s renowned sporting, dining, shopping, arts and cultural attractions.
Within the hotel’s immediate neighbourhood is Southern Cross Station, Queen Victoria Market, Marvel Stadium and Spencer Outlet Centre (shopping mall). A short tram ride takes visitors to Bourke Street Mall, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Federation Square and Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
Media and tourism industry famils and imagery of the new hotel will be available from February. Please register your interest to be among the first to
