Courtyard Marriott to open in downtown Delray this month


Staff report

There is a new place to staycation downtown.

Courtyard by Marriott will open its doors to guests this month.

Located at 135 SE 6th Ave., in the city’s Marina Historic District, the hotel features 150 rooms with 12 deluxe suites.

Rooms are offered in about a dozen configurations with double king bed options with a pull out sofa for families.

The hotel is geared toward both families vacationing and folks traveling for business trip meetings.

The hotel is modern and has pops of blue sofas in the lobby. The water and ocean vibe is subtly present in the design and color scheme.

The ground floor features The Bistro, which will serve breakfast and Starbucks coffee as well as dinner. There is also a private dining area. The ground floor houses three guest rooms and the fitness center with floor to ceiling windows.

On its own wing is an area dedicated to meeting space. Away from any hotel rooms, three different rooms total 2,005-square-feet. There is a board room for intimate meetings and a larger room that can accommodate about 90 people. There are media pods with built-in-TVs and technology for hosting meetings.

Some rooms on the fourth floor have Intracoastal views. And the top floor is close to the rooftop pool, which also has a bar, The Reef. The pool and bar area will be open to the public with the purchase of a wristband pass.
