Countdown is underway for the introduction of a new Marriott brand to the UAE. The Courtyard by Marriott Green Community Dubai is set to open next month, bringing with it a new moderately priced accommodation offering for the business traveller.

A purpose-built hotel, the Courtyard’s opening had been originally scheduled for November. However, delays to construction and outfitting meant that the opening was pushed back to February 15.

“It was important for us to get things just right,” explains Elaine Watson, general manager for the Courtyard by Marriott Green Community Dubai. “We are introducing a new brand to the market, and we want there to be no mistaking what the Courtyard is all about. Therefore, attention to detail, which sometimes slows down the process, has been critical.”

The Courtyard by Marriott Green Community Dubai will have 165 rooms, including 81 king size, 74 double/double rooms, four junior suites and six executive suites.

“Introducing such a targeted, niche brand like the Courtyard to Dubai is extremely exciting. Designed by business travellers for business travellers, the Courtyard by Marriott Green Community will provide a much needed lodging opportunity for companies within Jebel Ali Free Zone, Internet and Media cities and the Dubai Investment Park. Its leisure facilities also make it the perfect choice for sports enthusiasts visiting the Autodrome, while its restaurants, I am sure, will provide a recipe for success among residents of the Green Community,” adds Watson.

For meetings, there will be conference and banqueting facilities for up to 500, a business centre and state-of-the art audiovisual equipment. All day dining is to be provided at the hotel restaurant. Italian trattoria cooking will be available at Dubai’s second Cucina the Italian Kitchen. Leisure facilities will include an outdoor swimming pool, childrens pool, gymnasium, sauna and jacuzzi.
