Marriott to take Courtyard brand out west

Marriott International has signed an agreement with Hesperia to introduce the Courtyard by Marriott brand to Perth.

Located 13 kilometres south of Perth’s central business district, the 150-room new-build Courtyard by Marriott Perth, Murdoch will form part of the mixed-use Murdoch Health and Knowledge Precinct, and is expected to open in early 2024.

“We are thrilled to be working with Hesperia to bring the Courtyard by Marriott brand to Perth,” said Richard Crawford, Marriott’s vice president of hotel development for Australia, New Zealand and Pacific.

“Murdoch is a large-scale health and knowledge precinct, and the signing of Courtyard by Marriott Perth, Murdoch further underscores Marriott International’s continued effort in expanding into urban growth corridors outside of Australia’s capital cities.”

Located 10 minutes from Perth CBD and 25 minutes from Perth Airport, Courtyard by Marriott Perth, Murdoch will offer proximity to Western Australia’s largest tertiary hospitals, Murdoch University, the South Metro TAFE Campus and one of Perth’s fastest-growing districts.

“Marriott’s metropolitan growth strategy is proving to be very well facilitated by the Courtyard by Marriott brand, which has equal appeal to business and leisure travellers,” Crawford said.

“With two Courtyard by Marriott hotels already open in Australia, and five more in our pipeline, it is very satisfying to see the Courtyard brand gaining such momentum here.”

Hesperia director Kyle Jeavons said the Courtyard by Marriott signing is a perfect fit for the Murdoch precinct.

“The Courtyard by Marriott will deliver an inviting experience that is suitable for the precinct and the broad range of users it will attract,” he said.

“When selecting the right mix of partners for a complex mixed-use project such as this, it is essential to align with groups that share our philosophy in customer service and hospitality, and we’re pleased to be bringing the Courtyard by Marriott brand to Perth.”

The hotel is slated to feature 150 modern-styled guest rooms, an all-day dining restaurant with a semi-open kitchen concept, a café and a bar.

Additional plans include a well-equipped fitness centre and one meeting room, which will be equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and wireless internet.

Courtyard by Marriott Perth, Murdoch is expected to mark the fifth Marriott property in Perth and the third hotel under the Courtyard brand to enter Australia.
