RBH welcomes a new addition to its portfolio as Courtyard by Marriott Luton Airport opened this month. The 250-bedroom hotel occupies a first-class location just minutes’ walk from the passenger terminal.

The hotel, managed by UK’s leading hotel management company RBH, was built using a state-of-the-art modular-build process, which saw rooms built at Polish firm Polcom’s factory in Gdansk before being transported to the UK ready for construction. The latest Courtyard by Marriott design is brought to life through refreshed interiors featuring contemporary and efficient design that mixes a natural colour palette with yellow and blue accents to create a casual yet vibrant atmosphere.

Helder Pereira, CEO of RBH said:

This hotel is our portfolio’s third Courtyard by Marriott, and our first in Luton. We are proud to bring our expertise to the town’s newest hotel, which is our third opening in partnership with Polcom. We look forward to developing this relationship further as part of our long-term growth strategy.”

The hotel’s food and beverage offering, Kitchen & Bar offers a relaxed, bistro environment with a range of hot and cold menu items from salads and sandwiches to pizzas and BBQ grill items. Guests can also choose from a comprehensive list of wines, beers, and spirits.

Additional hotel features include 74m² of event space with three flexible meeting rooms suited to board meetings and presentations. Each of the meeting rooms celebrates Luton’s industrial heritage, paying homage to the town’ historical links with the hat-making industry, featuring names like Bowler, Boater and Trilby. Media pods are also available for informal meetings of up to four people.

Guests looking to keep fit on the go can do so in the hotel’s fitness suite, which features the latest, state-of-the-art ‘Life Fitness’ equipment with integrated LCD touch screen offering enhanced interaction, internet connectivity and much more.  

Mohammed Azam, General Manager at Courtyard by Marriott Luton Airport, said:

We’re situated in a prime location that will be ideal for holiday makers, leisure and business travellers – we can’t wait to welcome guests to our brand new hotel.”

Courtyard by Marriott now has seven properties in the UK and is slated to increase its portfolio with the addition of five further hotels in key cities such as Glasgow, London and Oxford by end of 2020, offering business travellers a continually elevated experience that meets the generational shift in how guests work and travel today.

John Licence, Vice President Premium and Select Brands at Marriott International Europe, said:

We are delighted to welcome this property to the Courtyard by Marriott portfolio. The prime airport location offers both business and leisure travellers alike a fresh, contemporary space in which to rest and re-energize before their onward journey.”
