Marriott International, Inc. announced the opening of the 257-room Courtyard by Marriott Shenzhen Bao’an. This is the first hotel of the highly successful Courtyard by Marriott brand in Shenzhen, one of southern China’s most significant and celebrated economic regions focusing on tech and entrepreneurship.
Owned by Shenzhen Liantou Estate, Courtyard by Marriott Shenzhen Bao’an is strategically located in Songgang, Bao’an District, a renowned manufacturing and industrial hub in Shenzhen. More importantly, this area is located in the flourishing Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area, an economic zone founded to facilitate cooperation and development in the region, more commonly known as the ‘Greater Bay Area’.
“Since we opened the first Courtyard by Marriott hotel 35 years ago, it’s been a brand that understands and caters to the needs of the business traveler, and is dedicated to creating an environment where great things happen. Shenzhen is a buzzing economic hub for both domestic and international travelers and an ideal location for the new Courtyard by Marriott,” said Mike Fulkerson, Vice President of Brand Marketing, Asia Pacific, Marriott International.
The hotel’s 257 guestrooms are located between levels 20 and 29 within an upscale, modern commercial building in Songgang. All rooms are designed in a modern aesthetic and feature flexible areas for work and relaxation, as well as a full array of amenities including free Wi-Fi and a flat screen HDTV to keep guests connected.
Courtyard by Marriott Shenzhen Bao’an has a wealth of dining options for guests to choose from. The all-day dining restaurant, Pavilion, offers a diverse array of local and international culinary delights within a stylish environment. The Lobby Lounge is a versatile venue for informal gatherings, casual business meetings, or simply an area to relax and unwind after a busy day. The space evolves from a café and patisserie culminating in an afternoon tea experience during the day, to a vibrant bar offering creative cocktails and snacks in the evening. The Executive Lounge is an exclusive lounge for elite members of the Marriott Rewards loyalty programme.
Courtyard by Marriott Shenzhen Bao’an also features a total meeting space of 755 square metres, comprised of a 432 square metre ballroom and five fully-equipped function rooms. The ballroom, with state-of-the-art audio and visual facilities, is ideal for any functions ranging from wedding banquets to business conferences and corporate events.
“Our entire team is proud to be part of the first Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Shenzhen. We are passionate about supporting our guests on their personal and professional pursuits not only with our outstanding facilities and amenities, but also through our warm, engaging hospitality that the Courtyard brand is known for,” said Nicole Hong, General Manager of Courtyard by Marriott Shenzhen Bao’an.
