Marriott International is expanding its presence in Turkey, with plans to open 10 additional properties in the country by next year.
Begum Kaya, Marriott International director of development, Turkey, commented: “Marriott International has a strong history of successful operations in the Turkish market. With our captivating portfolio of brands, world-class distribution platform and all-encompassing travel programme, Marriott Bonvoy, we appreciate the confidence our owners and franchisees have with us in this exciting market.”
The operator recently announced two signings under its Four Points by Sheraton brand, the Four Points by Sheraton Istanbul Kagithane, which is expected to open in 2021, and the Four Points by Sheraton Elazig, set for a 2022 opening.
Marriott is also aiming to meet the demand for long-stay accommodations by debuting its Residence Inn by Marriott brand in Istanbul later this year. Residence Inn by Marriott Istanbul Atasehir will feature suites with fully equipped kitchens and separate living and sleeping areas.
According to the group, its premium brands are a “strong driver of growth in the Turkish market”. Two new Autograph Collection hotels will open in Istanbul: The Burdock, Autograph Collection this year and Orient Occident Hotel, Autograph Collection in 2022.
The Delta Hotels by Marriott brand will also open a new property in Istanbul Levent by the end of 2021, while next year will see the arrival of a property under the Sheraton Hotels and Resorts brand, with the Sheraton Istanbul Esenyurt opening.
Marriott also has two branded residences in the pipeline for 2022, which include The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Bodrum, the company’s first standalone branded residences in the EMEA region, and The Residences at the Sheraton Istanbul Esenyurt.
