Property developer Tropi­cana Corp Bhd, in partnership with Marriott International, opened Courtyard by Marriott Penang on Sept 4. Comprising 199 rooms and suites, the new hotel is the first Courtyard by Marriott in Malaysia and the hotel chain's 17th in the country.

"The introduction of Courtyard by Marriott at Tropicana 218 Macalister marks the launch of our second hotel by the Marriott Group, in line with our strategy to strengthen our investment portfolio and increase our recurring income stream," Tropicana group managing director Dion Tan said in a statement.

Courtyard by Marriott Penang is located at the developer's RM334.7 million high-rise residential project Tropicana 218 Macalister in Georgetown — a 2.09-acre freehold development that also offers 211 units of Neo Suites, 88 serviced residences and 20 re­tail shops.

With rooms and suites boasting unobstructed views of Penang's Unesco World Heritage Site, Courtyard by Marriott Penang includes Penang Kitchen, a restaurant that offers all-day dining, as well as the state's first distillery-themed bar Gin Library, slated to open in the last quarter of 2020.

Other facilities at the hotel include a 24-hour fitness centre, an outdoor infinity pool overlooking Penang Hill, a pillarless ballroom that can accommodate up to 150 guests, as well as eight meeting rooms and a VIP room — each fitted with the latest audio-visual equipment. The hotel is also a stone's throw away from Penang's hawker food stalls and the Komtar building.

In conjunction with the launch, Courtyard by Marriott Penang is offering special opening rates starting at RM300 nett per room per night, with complimentary high-speed WiFi for stays from Sept 3 to Dec 23 this year.
