Last year, American chain Marriott inaugurated their seventh hotel Courtyard in the Parisian region. This new address et across the gare de Lyon is the first of the brand set within Paris. Courtyard by Marriott Paris Gare de Lyon features 249 bedrooms on 19 floors and provides many services likely to seduce business travelers and families on vacations but not only.
Marriott chose to settle in Paris 12th arrondissement, in the heart of the business neighborhood that changes a lot. This new Courtyard spot has startup incubator Station F for neighbor, as well as the Cité de la Mode et du Design and even Ground Control, places of life that gather restaurants, art labs and stores…. The hotel is ideally set for tourists. Metro lines are just at the foot of the hotel and there’s only one street to cross to get to the Gare de Lyon.
Business travelers will make the most of the ideal location of the hotel and its indoor equipment. Courtyard Paris Gare de Lyon makes 500sqm of workspace available, including 9 meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 100 people. And those who want to can work in modulable and bookable areas or open spaces created for teamwork.
Featuring 78 family room and a play area for children, the new hotel doesn’t leave families out. On weekends or school breaks, a crêpe station will make children happy, right after enjoying coloring books available on tables suiting their sizes.
Covering between 21sqm and 27sqm, bedrooms look out on different monuments in the city. The large windows provide a unique and impressive panorama on the capital. With just one glance, you can see the Jardin des Plantes, the Eiffel Tower, the Montparnasse Tower, the Notre-Dame cathedral, the Sacré-Cœur…. Prices go from €149 to €229 which is quite reasonable for bedrooms that feature such views of Paris.
The hotel restaurant and bar, named Kitchen and Bar are open non-stop from 6:30 a.m. to midnight. Chef Mélissa Ravel – who used to be chef at Inséparables and station chef at Maison Blanche – offers a menu renewed regularly depending on fresh and seasonal products grown by local producers. Those who rather eat in their bedrooms can order a K&B Box to go. Guests come and get their dish at the restaurant and can take away any dish available on the menu.
At the Atelier Long Drink bar, the house exclusive cocktails are prepared with aromas harvested in the vertical kitchen garden open to cooks and barmen. The bar provides homemade gin infusions and wines coming from independent growers.
Courtyard by Marriott Paris Gare de Lyon also enjoys skylights and a large green wall set in the lobby. With its green, yellow and wooden hues, hotel Courtyard expects to continue the laid-back and cozy atmosphere for all travelers. The décor has been inspired by the station neighborhood: along the walls, the design reminds us of the rails in the station. Large prints echo the art studios enlivening the district.
