Courtyard offers best of both worlds

EASY access to both business hubs and shopping, Courtyard by Marriott Suzhou provides guests with the best of both worlds, allowing them to work and have fun. Nestled in the heart of Suzhou Industrial Park, the newly opened hotel delivers on the Courtyard brand promise, offering travelers spacious rooms and excellent value.

Owned by Suzhou Industrial Park Hengyu Real Estate Co Ltd, the hotel operates under a long-term management agreement with Marriott International headed by Tony Sum as general manager and Neon Li as director of sales.

"From MoMo Cafe to our high-tech meeting rooms, Courtyards in China offer business and leisure guests excellent space and flexibility to optimize their stay," said Janis Milham, vice president and global brand manager for Courtyard by Marriott. "This new opening reinforces our steady expansion in the country and validates the popularity and recognition we have gained as a brand that offers great value for money."

The new hotel is centrally located, offering easy access to the Suzhou International Expo Center, Times Square shopping center, Jinji Lake and scenic downtown that is known for its stone bridges, pagodas and gardens. Other nearby attractions include: Lingering Garden, Lion Grove Garden, Canglang Pavilion and Suzhou Silk Museum.

Tony Sum was appointed the general manager of Courtyard by Marriott Suzhou in March this year.

Sum was previously the residence manager of the Ningbo Marriott Hotel and contributed greatly to its success. Sum first joined the Marriott Group in 1997 as director of food and beverage at China Hotel, a Marriott hotel, in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province. He was promoted to executive assistant manager in 1998 and finished his assignment at China Hotel in 2003. Sum moved to Shanghai Renaissance Pudong Hotel in the position of director of operations and stayed there for four and a half years.

The calming colors and contemporary design of the large guest rooms make them feel warm and stylish. Featuring amenities that provide both comfort and efficiency, the room layouts allow the space to be multi-functional. Deluxe bedding, 42-inch LCD panel TVs, iHome docking stations and satellite channels ensure that guests are able to enjoy down time and unwind while well-lit work areas, high-speed Internet, laptop-size safes and the latest in-room technology tools help increase productivity.

Guests looking for a treat should visit the hotel's 27th floor where they'll discover the highest indoor pool and gym in the city. The fully equipped health club provides inspiration while working out to the view of the surrounding city.

MoMo Caf?? is the social center of the hotel, offering something to satisfy everyone's cravings. Fresh local ingredients blended with the chef's creativity makes the quality food a delight for both locals and foreign diners. The open kitchen and wood-fire oven produce delightful aromas that create a warm home-like ambiance. MoMo 2 Go opens daily from 7am to 10pm, providing "on the run" guests with a "grab and go" kiosk filled with sandwiches, pastries and beverages of every kind.

Located on the 25th floor, the executive lounge offers personalized check-in and check-out services as well as complimentary breakfast, international newspapers, laundry service, complimentary use of meeting rooms, evening cocktails and snacks.

High ceilings, experienced staff and state-of-the-art conference facilities make events at the Courtyard by Marriott Suzhou simple and stylish. It offers a total of 717 square meters of function space and seven meeting rooms. The 450-square-meter grand ballroom can accommodate up to 350 people in theater style. A 45-square-meter boardroom filled with natural light makes the venue ideal for local businesses gatherings.
