Marriott Int'l Expands in Africa with Three New Hotel Deals
Marriott International has given a boost to its expansion in Africa with the signing of three new hotels in Morocco and Ghana, while making its debut in Liberia.
The three new hotel signings are The St. Regis Marrakech Resort, Residence Inn by Marriott Accra Kotoka Airport and Four Points by Sheraton Monrovia. The St. Regis Marrakech Resort which is anticipated to open in 2024, will be part of the Assoufid Golf Resort and will include 80 rooms and villas, with spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains.
The St. Regis Marrakech Resort will feature a spa, pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, 6 culinary experiences, and the iconic St. Regis Bar inspired.
Offering the ideal escape from the city, the resort will be in close proximity to the award-winning, 18-hole Assoufid Golf Club which has established itself as one of the best courses in Africa. Projected to open in 2023, the 12-story Residence Inn by Marriott Accra Kotoka Airport, will have 160 suites with separate living, working and sleeping zones, and fully functional kitchens.
Other facilities in the hotel will include three food and beverage outlets, including a rooftop bar, a health and leisure club and a boardroom.
The hotel will be strategically located in the Airport Residential Area of Accra and less than 1.5 kilometres from the Kotoka International Airport. Marriott will make its debut in Liberia with the Four Points by Sheraton Monrovia. Expected to open in 2020, the hotel will have 111 rooms and four food and beverage outlets.
Four Points by Sheraton Monrovia will be in the heart of Monrovia’s central business district and will reflect the brand’s promise to provide what matters most to today’s independent travellers.
Marriott International is on track to expand its footprint in Africa to 200 hotels by the end of 2023. The North and West Africa regions play a pivotal role in the company’s overall growth strategy for the continent.
