27th February 2017

RBH has today (27 February 2017) announced that it will manage the upcoming Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh West hotel undertaken by Polcom Developments. The hotel is expected to open summer 2017.

The new 160 bedroom modular build hotel will be sited on the Heriot Watt University Campus in Edinburgh, located next to Oriam, Scotland's Sports Performance Centre.

Oriam provides top sportsmen and women with world class sporting facilities helping them to succeed on the international stage. It is expected that the new Courtyard by Marriott hotel, with its excellent facilities and comfortable accommodation, will complement Oriam and the work going on in the field.

The hotel will boast thoughtfully designed guestrooms that promote comfort and productivity, a bar, bistro and market shop alongside three meeting rooms and private dining. It will be an ideal location in the west of Edinburgh city centre, within the heart of Heriot Watt University's Edinburgh woodland campus, and only a few miles from Edinburgh airport, providing much needed accommodation and meeting space to the city.

RBH - the UK's leading independent hotel management company - which already has a further four properties within its portfolio in Edinburgh, including the Princes Street Suites, the Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh, DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh and Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh City Centre, will manage the hotel once complete.

Ross Morrow, RBH's Chief Development Officer, said: "Edinburgh is the UK's most popular visitor destination outside of London. With hotel occupancy at an all-time high, managing a hotel that will bring an extra 160 bedrooms to the city - the new Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh West - will be an exciting addition to the RBH portfolio. We are delighted to be working with Polcom Group on the project, which will be the first of many in our ongoing partnership."

RBH's portfolio includes private label and branded properties, including IHG, Hilton, Accor, Marriott, Best Western and Wyndham hotels.
