Design Focus: Marriott Courtyard

Marriott’s Regional Vice President Tim Waltion officially opened the Courtyard by Marriott in Edinburgh last month. The hotel, which has 240 rooms, is one of the biggest city centre hotels in the capital.

The £30 million renovation project which saw three adjoining Georgian townhouses, formerly the home of engineer and lighthouse designer Robert Stevenson in Baxter’s Place, connected to a brand new building by glassed walkways, was completed by Edinburgh-based property development and investment company Chris Stewart Group who also own the building. The hotel will be managed and operated by Redefine|BDL Hotels.

The renovation combines both heritage and contemporary style. The hotel’s Baxter’s Place address was once home to Robert Stevenson, the famous Scottish lighthouse engineer and the grandfather of ‘Treasure Island’ author Robert Louis Stevenson. References to its heritage, appear in the public areas and in every room, through images, technical drawings and maps. New facilities include an all-day bar and restaurant called The Lantern Room, which offers local fare with a modern twist.

The hotel also has a boardroom, The Stevenson Room, which can cater for up to 16 people, as well as offering designated media pods, a 24/7 market and a fitness centre.

The General Manager of the new hotel is Douglas Winfield.
