New 240 Room Courtyard by Marriott hotel Set to Open in Edinburgh

Following the launch of Courtyard by Marriott’s new European design concept at Courtyard Aberdeen Airport Hotel last year, Marriott International, Inc. has announced plans to open a second 240-room Courtyard branded hotel in Scotland in early 2016. The hotel will occupy a listed building on Baxter’s Place which consists of three adjoining Georgian townhouses, one of which was home to Robert Stevenson, a famous Scottish civil engineer and the grandfather of Robert Louis Stevenson, the author of “Treasure Island”.

The building and its impressive façade will be restored and behind this will sit a new building to accommodate the rest of the hotel. There will also be an all-day Bistro Restaurant, fitness centre and a 49 square foot multi-functional meeting room. It is being developed in association with property developer and investment company The Chris Stewart Group (CSG).
