Courtyard by Marriott brings its new design to the heart of Paris
Courtyard by Marriott has welcomed a new property in the heart of Paris, ideally situated opposite the Gare de Lyon train station, which serves as both a domestic and international travel hub for millions of passengers each year. This dynamic area of the city is also home to numerous co-working spaces and start-up incubators, making the hotel the perfect choice for business travelers.
Housed in a 19-story tower, Courtyard by Marriott Paris Gare de Lyon offers exceptional views over the city and its emblematic sights. The design in the 249 bedrooms was led by Studios Architecture and features sleek wood finishes and metallic details that reflect the area’s industrial past.
“We are excited to bring the Courtyard brand to the heart of the French capital, with this new address at an exceptional location in the city centre of Paris,” said John Licence, Vice President Premium and Select Brands Europe at Marriott International. “The hotel’s proximity to the world’s largest start-up incubator is ideal for Courtyard’s passion-driven guests looking to pursue their personal and professional ambitions whilst on the road.”
Bringing to life the brand’s new design vision for its properties, the hotel incorporates a more contemporary look and feel that speaks to its ambitious and enterprising guests. Pops of vivid yellow throughout the public spaces echo the painted facades in nearby pedestrian street Rue Crémieux whilst vibrant green plant walls speak to the local ‘greenway’ La Coulée Verte. Spaces, amenities, and technology account for emerging trends and the needs of next-gen travelers, offering a welcoming, inviting environment that enables collaboration and exploration.
