Marriott International is bringing its Courtyard by Marriott brand to Melbourne with the opening of a new property in March 2022.

The 4-star Courtyard by Marriott Melbourne Flagstaff Gardens, located in Batman Street, includes 150 guest rooms, and design elements to cater to both business and leisure travellers.

“Our guests are passionate, success-focused individuals who see travel as an opportunity for both professional and personal growth – they choose our hotel because they want to be able to work, exercise, eat well, connect, and be at their best,” Courtyard by Marriott Melbourne Flagstaff Gardens General Manager, Carolyn Smith, said.

“Courtyard’s modern, elevated décor, flexible workspaces, amenities, and ambiance all work together to deliver an experience that fuels and energises our guests and helps them get the job done.”

Sophistication and comfort are at the heart of the new hotel, which has been designed by Skematics, with interiors by DKO Architecture.

The property features an all-day dining restaurant, street-facing café and bar, rooftop entertaining area and 24-hour fitness centre, as well as event spaces for corporate meetings and social gatherings.

Courtyard by Marriott Melbourne Flagstaff Gardens, which is owned by Ousia Properties Pty Ltd, is the third of its kind in Australia, with sister properties in Brisbane and Sydney.

The brand was founded in the United States in 1983 to offer premium but affordable accommodation to business travellers. Over the decades, the brand has evolved to meet the changing needs of its guests. Today, there are more than 1,200 Courtyard by Marriott locations across 60 countries and territories.
