Courtyard by Marriott debuts in Mexico City at airport

MEXICO CITY The first Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Mexico City will open early next year at Benito Juarez International Airport.

The 292-key Courtyard Mexico City Airport, owned by Peñon SA de CV, will feature an expansive courtyard atrium.

“As one of the busiest, most populous cities in the world, Mexico City is a premier travel destination in Latin America, and we are thrilled to introduce the Courtyard by Marriott brand to Mexico’s capital,” says Laurent de Kousemaeker, Marriott International’s chief development officer for the Caribbean and Latin America. “The Courtyard positioning and business model has had tremendous success throughout Mexico and Central America, and we look forward to continued growth throughout the region.”

Guests at the Courtyard Mexico City Airport will have easy access to Latin America’s busiest airport, as the property is connected to international terminal one by a pedestrian bridge. The hotel will feature four levels of guestrooms, a patio level with retail outlets, a mezzanine level with lobby and fitness center, and two levels of underground parking for 480 cars.

“Marriott International has a long standing presence in Mexico, which has proven to be one of our most successful international markets,” said Alejandro Acevedo, Marriott’s vice president of development for Mexico. “We are committed to continued expansion in this great country, and we look forward to working with existing and new partners to develop Courtyard by Marriott hotels and other Marriott International brands throughout Mexico.”

Marriott operates 18 hotels in Mexico under five different brands: Marriott Hotels & Resorts, JW Marriott Hotels, The Ritz-Carlton, Courtyard by Marriott, and Fairfield Inn. The Courtyard Mexico City Airport will be the seventh Courtyard to open in Mexico, and four more Courtyards are in the pipeline there.
