Marriott Set to Debut Three New Autograph Collection Hotels
Marriott International’s growing lineup of independent hotels, the Autograph Collection, will see several new additions in Europe by the end of 2012. Three new properties, in Lisbon, Portugal, Rouen, France, and Lille, France, will bring the number of Autograph hotels located throughout Europe up to 12, and 40 worldwide.
Fontecruz Lisboa, the Autograph Collection’s first hotel in Portugal, located on Avenida Liberdale, the main street in Lisbon, Portugal, will open this fall. The property will include 72 rooms and suites as well as on-site dining.
The Hotel De Bourgtheroulde in Rouen, France, is located in a 15th century stone mansion, and will offer a full service spa, various dining venues, and meeting space. The second Autograph hotel to open in France this year, L’Hermitage Gantois in Lille, will offer 72 guest rooms, as well as Wi-Fi and in-room Nespresso coffee machines.
The Autograph Collection launched as an opportunity for independent hotel owners to reach travelers through Marriott’s website and marketing programs.
