New 456-key Courtyard by Marriott Shanghai Puxi is brand’s third-largest

SHANGHAI Nestled in the cultural and entertainment center of Shanghai, Courtyard by Marriott Shanghai Puxi is ideal for both business and leisure guests, offering travelers spacious rooms, excellent value and a great location with easy access to both the local railway and metro.

The 456-key hotel is owned by Gain Year Development Real Estate Shanghai Co. Ltd. and operates under a long-term management agreement with Marriott International, headed by Robert Chiang as general manager and Alex Wu as director of marketing.

Nearby attractions include the famed Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street, Jade Buddha Temple, Jing’an Temple, The Bund and People’s Square.

“Courtyard is a brand that resonates very well here in Shanghai,” Chiang says. “It provides great value to our in-house guests but at the same time brings to the neighborhood a modern, trendy and attractive venue where people can gather, enjoy and relax.”

The new hotel delivers on Courtyard’s promise, providing flexible space and amenities that allow guests to maximize their stay. Bright colors, open layout and contemporary furniture throughout the hotel reflect its innovative design that aims at creating a welcoming and sociable atmosphere for travelers.

The hotel offers a culinary treat with its MoMo Café, presenting a menu that blends Western dishes with local favorites, from hamburgers to dim sum, pizza to kung pao. Highlighting the freshness of its ingredients, MoMo Café offers diners quality food and an assortment of flavors. Its open kitchen and wood-fire oven create a warm homelike ambiance that makes the restaurant inviting to both guests and locals. For guests “on the run,” the hotel offers a “grab and go” kiosk called MoMo 2 Go, offering quick and tasty beverage and snack selections.

An executive lounge on the top floor boasts a spectacular panoramic view of the city and offers complimentary breakfast, evening drinks and snacks. Courtyard Shanghai Puxi offers a 24-hour fitness center and an indoor swimming pool that help guests stay on their work out schedule during their travels. A state-of-the-art ballroom and four function rooms with natural light provide 5,382 sq. ft. of meeting space.

This new hotel is the third Courtyard-branded property in Shanghai and joins a local portfolio that includes the 318-key Courtyard by Marriott Hotel Shanghai Pudong and the 364-key Courtyard by Marriott Shanghai Xujiahui. It is the third largest Courtyard hotel in the world by number of rooms.
