Courtyard by Marriott, a brand of hotels owned by Marriott International, will open in Croatia’s tallest building next summer.

Courtyard by Marriott will occupy floors 16 to 26 in the Dalmacija Tower at the Westgate Towers in Split on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. The 4-star Courtyard by Marriott will have 190 rooms and apartments when it opens in 2019.

The south tower where the hotel will be located will be 115 metres-high once it is complete, making it officially the tallest construction in Croatia. It will have 6 underground levels, a ground level and 27 floors.

Last week an agreement was signed by Westgate Tower and Marriott International for cooperation. The hotel will be the first Marriott hotel in Croatia.

“We are pleased to present the arrival of Courtyard by Marriott in Split, which is the first direct investment of Marriott International in Croatia. Although when entering the market of certain countries we choose the capital city for the opening of the first hotel, we made an exception in Croatia,” said Matt Hughes from Marriott International.

Hughes says that the modern shape of the building and its location are ideally suited to Marriott International’s business vision. He says that the city of Split, apart from its business potential, has an unavoidable, significant tourist potential.

“I am happy that more than 100 million members of Marriott’s loyalty programs will finally be able to choose Croatia as part of our offer,” he concluded.
