Residence Inn by Marriott debuts in Columbia with a property in Bogotá

Marriott has announced the opening of Residence Inn by Marriott Bogotá, marking the brand’s debut in the country.

Residence Inn by Marriott Bogotá is located at Calle 90 # 16-30, just a few steps from 93rd Street Park and in the middle of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan area in the Colombian capital. The hotel provides direct access to Chicó Market (Mercado del Chicó), an innovative gastronomic complex with more than 30 gastronomic offerings, located adjacent to the hotel, as well as to Bodytech Calle 90, one of the best medical sports clubs in Colombia.

Diane Mayer, Vice President & Global Brand Manager of Classic Select Brands, Marriott International, said:

We are very pleased to introduce the Residence Inn by Marriott brand for the first time in Colombia. We’ve seen increased demand for longer stay brands that offer modern amenities, open room layouts and sophisticated design to spread out, recharge and maintain a healthy balance while on the road, whether for business or for fun. Travelers can make the most of their stay by choosing the Residence Inn by Marriott Bogotá.
