By Alex Girda, Associate Editor

Lima, Peru—Marriott International Inc. is set to expand its operations in the South American state of Peru with a brand new Courtyard by Marriott Hotel location in Lima, the country’s third largest city. The hotel is set to join other Marriott-operated hospitality spots in the country, namely the JW Marriott Lima and the JW Marriott Cuzco, both of which are owned by local corporation, Inversiones La Rioja, S.A. The new venue will be developed as per an agreement with the local entity.

Set to be located in the affluent neighborhood of Miraflores, the Courtyard by Marriott in Lima will be a 150-key upscale facility that will benefit from proximity to high quality shopping and dining spots, all in the ambiance created by the ocean.

The amenity package that the facility will offer includes a business lobby, a casual dining restaurant, substantial meeting space, a fitness facility and a swimming pool. JW Marriot Lima is a 300-key facility while the JW Marriott Cuzco offers guests 153 rooms to choose from. Lima is regarded as one of the strongest entry points Marriott International has for the Latin American hospitality market, according to company representatives.

This is the first facility operating under the Courtyard by Marriott brand in Peru and according to the hospitality giant’s President of the Carribbean & Latin America division, Craig S. Smith, it will mark the company’s aggressive expansion policy in the area. The company responsible for the development of the venue has voiced its opinion through Alfonso Brazzini, president of the board at Inversiones La Rioja: “With the incredible performance of the JW Marriott Lima, we are confident this hotel will do very well in Lima.”
