San Salvador, El Salvador – 28 November 2014 – Marriott International announced plans today to open a 130 room Fairfield by Marriott in El Salvador. Located adjacent to the upscale La Gran Via shopping mall and in close proximity to large corporations such as Xerox, Citibank, the World Bank, Bayers and Siemens, the hotel will serve as an excellent lodging option for the frequent business travelers. The property will be developed by Dueñas Hermanos Ltda. (d.b.a. Urbanica Desarrollos Inmobiliarios), Caribe Hospitality and Terranum Hotels, the same the companies that own the existing Courtyard by Marriott San Salvador. The hotel will be managed by Marriott International under a long term agreement.
“As Central America continues to develop, the region’s middle class continues to grow and travel more and more, requiring reliable, high quality accommodations to cater to their lodging needs,” said Craig S. Smith, President of the Caribbean and Latin America at Marriott International. “This new property reaffirms the company’s commitment to Central America and marks the continuation of our aggressive growth plans in the region.”
“We are fortunate to have such excellent regional partners in Latin America with a progressive mindset, with whom we look forward to continue to grow many successful hotels within the region” says Laurent de Kousemaeker, chief development officer for Marriott International, Inc. in the Caribbean & Latin America “El Salvador is among the top Central American markets we are targeting for our select service brands.”
The 130-room Fairfield by Marriott hotel in San Salvador, scheduled to open in 2016, will feature a modern design, a casual dining restaurant, meeting space and a state of the art fitness center.
