Courtyard by Marriott Docks in Hamburg City

Marriott International today announced the opening of Courtyard by Marriott Hamburg City, the second Courtyard by Marriott hotel in the leading business city. The 277-guestroom hotel is set in an unparalleled city centre location with Hamburg's gastronomic, shopping and cultural highlights on its doorstep, as well as the city's business district close by.

A city famed for its maritime heritage, this history echoes through Hamburg's beating heart with seaward architecture, old shipping containers and the River Elbe's snaking waterways setting a stunning backdrop to the city's forward-thinking spirit. With the renowned Elbphilharmonie Hamburg Concert Hall drawing global talent, a plethora of museums, the freshest seafood turning gastronomic heads and renowned dusk-till-dawn party spirit, the city bursts with energy.

'We're delighted to debut Hamburg City, our second property in Hamburg joining Courtyard Hamburg Airport,' said John Licence, Vice President Premium and Select Brands Europe, at Marriott International. 'Hamburg is renowned as a leading business hub, making the hotel perfect for our independent, forward-thinking guests who want to pursue their personal and professional passions on the road.'

Modern furnishings, blue hues and photography inspired by the city and shot by Hamburg-based photographer Esther Haase, fill the bright, open lobby. A comfortable, friendly ambiance sets the tone, providing guests with a space to work or relax.

The unique food market dining concept Böckmann's serves up delicious, seasonal Hamburg specialities from their open kitchen, whilst guests can also stop by the dedicated Tartare Bar to create their own beef, salmon or vegetarian tartare with marinades including Miso Nutbutter. For guests on the go, The Market offers a grab-and-go selection, from healthy snacks to nourishing meals. The relaxed bar serves the finest cocktails with a twist, including the unique mint Gin and Tonic traditional to Hamburg, along with regional and international wines.

Spacious, modern rooms boast a colourful headboard illustrating Hamburg's stunning waterways, along with light, wooden furniture. All guestrooms come with high technology equipment including 49-inch TVs, high speed Wi-Fi and an ergonomic work area, perfect for business or leisure travellers. The hotel's five spacious junior suites offer a separate living area and come equipped with a sofa bed, dining table, bathtub and shower.

The vast 454m² flexible conference and events spaces are able to be split into eight separate meeting rooms. The spacious, fully-equipped fitness space spans 65m², whilst the spa boasts a Finnish sauna and relaxation room, perfect for winding down after a busy day.

Courtyard by Marriott continues to innovate the guest experience to meet the changing needs of its guests.
