Located along the bustling Jalan Macalister in the heart of Penang’s UNESCO-listed George Town, the new 199-room Courtyard by Marriott Penang is set to provide the best hotel experience for guests to pursue their personal and professional passions while on the road.
“We are thrilled to continue to grow our presence in Malaysia with the opening of Courtyard by Marriott Penang,” said Rajeev Menon, president, Asia Pacific (excluding China), Marriott International. “Designed for today’s ambitious and enterprising traveller, the opening of Courtyard by Marriott Penang marks Marriott International’s 17th brand in Malaysia and further compliments our growing footprint in the country.”
Known for its cultural heritage, historic charm, and palm-fringed beaches, Penang is located on the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia and referred to as The Pearl of the Orient. At its heart is George Town, Penang Island's cosmopolitan urban center, lined with timeworn shophouses of the UNESCO World Heritage zone and traditional places of worship such as Chinese and Indian temples, mosques, juxtaposed with Western-style skyscrapers and shopping complexes.
Courtyard by Marriott Penang features rooms and suites designed to be smart and spacious, boasting 360° unobstructed views of Georgetown and the Straits of Malacca. Each room is fitted with thoughtful amenities and comes with high technology equipment and an ergonomic work area, ideal for business or leisure travellers. The public spaces are inviting and flexible to stimulate ideas, and a business centre in the lobby provides guests with everything they need to move forward.
