Marriott International has announced a new addition to its Courtyard by Marriott brand with the opening of a property at Paris Roissy CDG airport. Formerly the Radisson Blu CDG hotel, the property has undergone an extensive 15-month, multi-million pound refurbishment to relaunch as the Courtyard by Marriott Paris Roissy CDG Airport Hotel, making it the brand’s seventh hotel in France. “We are delighted to welcome this property to the Courtyard by Marriott portfolio,” said John Licence, Vice President Premium and Select Brands at Marriott International Europe. “The prime airport location offers both business and leisure travellers alike a fresh, contemporary space in which to rest and re-energize before their onward journey.”
Ideally located between the airport and the city centre, the 240-bedroom hotel boasts the latest Courtyard by Marriott design. This is brought to life through refreshed interiors featuring contemporary and efficient design that mixes a natural colour palette with yellow and blue accents to create a casual yet vibrant atmosphere.
The lobby has been redesigned into a flexible space to foster social connections with guests, complete with GoBoard, a unique Courtyard by Marriott concept offering touchscreen technology that allows users to view the latest airport information and research popular tourist attractions. Guests can also enjoy the use of complimentary Wi-Fi.
The hotel’s food and beverage offering, Kitchen & Bar, is the first of its kind in a Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Europe, and offers a relaxed, bistro environment with French-inspired menu items.
Additional hotel features include 1000m² of event space with 12 flexible meeting rooms, a 70m² fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment, and a complimentary airport shuttle service.
Courtyard by Marriott Paris Roissy CDG Airport Hotel is the first of two additions for the brand in Paris this year, with Courtyard by Marriott Paris Gare de Lyon expected to open in late 2018, taking the brand’s room count in the city to more than 1000. Two further properties are anticipated for 2019, at Porte de Versailles and Creteil, which would increase the brand’s portfolio in France to ten hotels
