New Courtyard hotel by Marriott Quito will be built at the Mariscal Sucre International Airport

Quiport and Grupo SIXSTAR Hotels are pleased to announce the construction of the new Courtyard hotel by Marriott Quito at the Mariscal Sucre airport. This innovative project responds to an initiative by Quiport to improve airport services and meet the current demand of users and passengers at the capital’s airport, a vision to which the SIXSTAR Hotels Group joined in alliance with Marriott International to execute the construction and administration of the new hotel.

Located on three floors of a mixed-use building in front of the passenger terminal of Quito’s Mariscal Sucre International Airport, this project will offer a first-class hotel experience to users and passengers arriving or departing from the air terminal. Additionally, its location will provide convenient pedestrian access to Ecuador’s busiest airport, significantly improving guests travel experience.

The hotel will have 84 rooms equipped within the brand’s standards. In addition, it will offer additional services such as a gym, business center, meeting room and a grab and go market, meeting the brand’s quality standards.

The total investment by SIXSTAR Hotels for the construction of the Courtyard by Marriott Quito will be 5 million dollars and will generate 60 new jobs in the country. Construction will begin as soon as the respective permits are obtained, with a tentative start date for operations at the end of the first half of 2025.

The project received support from the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Production, Foreign Trade, Investment and Fisheries, as well as the Municipality of Quito, entities that recognize its importance in strengthening the tourist infrastructure and economic development of the city and the country.

“We are very pleased with the announcement that the renowned Courtyard by Marriott brand will have a hotel at the Mariscal Sucre Airport in Quito. This partnership marks a significant moment in our continued commitment to providing world-class services and enhancing our travelers’ experience,” said Ramón Miró, president and CEO of Corporación Quiport. «The Courtyard by Marriott hotel will not only add comfort and convenience for travelers passing through our airport, but will also contribute to the economic and tourism development of our region. We are delighted to welcome this prestigious brand to our airport community. “We are confident that this alliance will further strengthen our position as one of the leading airports in the region.”

“This new hotel development is a great event in the growth strategy of Grupo SIXSTAR Hotels, it’s not only our second hotel developed together with a great partner such as Corporación Quiport at the Mariscal Sucre Airport in Quito, but it is also our first hotel under a Marriott brand about which we are eager to learn more and offer unique experiences to our future guests,” commented Andrés Pachano, executive director of Grupo SIXSTAR Hotels. “We are confident that this partnership with Marriott is perfect for a new development like this.”

This new development promises to raise the standard of hospitality at Mariscal Sucre Airport. Quiport and SIXSTAR Hotels look forward to welcoming visitors to this exciting new addition to the airport landscape.
