Courtyard by Marriott to Open First Hotel in Chile


In September, Marriott International announced plans to open a new Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Santiago in the fourth quarter of 2014, under an agreement with Chile’s Falabella retail group.

Located adjacent to the existing 280-room Santiago Marriott near the Parque Arauco shopping mall in Las Condes, the Courtyard will offer easy access to restaurants, bars and shops as well as some of the best views of the Andes Mountains.

“With the performance of the Marriott Santiago, as well as the success of the Courtyard by Marriott hotels in other Latin American markets, we are confident that this hotel will do very well” said Carlo Solari, vice president of Falabella, the largest retailer in South America with operations in Chile, Argentina, Peru and Colombia.

In addition to 200 rooms and suites, the hotel will feature a casual dining restaurant, 3,000 square feet of meeting space and recreational facilities include a swimming pool and a fitness center.
