The hotel company Marriott opened the first hotel in Costa Rica under the Residence Inn chain, which has operations outside of the US and Canada. The 109-room facility is located in Escazú within the Escazú Avenue project.
The layout is designed for long-term stays. The hotel has amenities geared toward corporate tastes; however, it is also suitable for vacationing families.
“The location and the facilities make it ideal. Its proximity to CIMA Hospital will attract visitors who come to the country for medical reasons. In addition, executives who relocate to Costa Rica can stay in the hotel while they look for permanent housing,” commented Laura Miranda, Marketing Manager for Marriott Costa Rica.
Part of the reasons that led to the decision to invest in Costa Rica were the positive results from their other three chains already in the country, JW Marriott, Marriott Hotels and Resort and Courtyard. This first operation in Costa Rica will be a stepping stone to expanding the brand at an international level.
The design was inspired by other lifestyle centers, a concept that is promoted by Escazú Avenue, part of a world trend to offer various services in the same location, such as shops, hotels, lodging, restaurants, theaters, and offices.
The architecture is contemporary and its design was headed by the architecture firms, Trejos Facio, Zurcher Arquitectos, and Studio 506. The internal design was led by Marriott and the Costa Rican company Fusion.
The hotel offers suites, one or two bedroom studios, furnished kitchens, Internet, breakfast service, laundry service, and complementary grocery shopping. The common areas offer a gym, pool, and conference rooms.
The company’s expectation is to make the hotel a destination for long-term stays with the comforts of home.
