Courtyard by Marriott has announced the opening of Courtyard by Marriott Penang—the first Courtyard debut in Malaysia. Located along the bustling Jalan Macalister in the heart of Penang’s UNESCO-listed George Town, the new 199-room hotel is set to provide the best hotel experience so guests can pursue their personal and professional passions while on the road.

“We are thrilled to continue to grow our presence in Malaysia with the opening of Courtyard by Marriott Penang,” said Rajeev Menon, president of Asia Pacific (excluding China) in Marriott International. “Designed for today’s ambitious and enterprising traveler, the opening of the property marks Marriott International’s 17th brand in Malaysia and further compliments our growing footprint in the country.”

Famed for its cultural heritage, historic charm, and palm-fringed beaches, Penang is located on the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia and is known as "The Pearl of the Orient."

The new hotel features rooms and suites designed to be smart and spacious, boasting 360-degree unobstructed views of George Town and the Straits of Malacca. 

The hotel offers one signature dining venue, and a bar that serves up a vast selection of drinks.
