Case Study

Marriott Hotel Complex, a mixed-use development project branded
Marriott located in the new development district in Bab Ezzouar
Algeria. The project consists of 4 Hotel and Serviced Properties
1) Marriott 5 star resorts
2) Marriott Courtyard Hotel

Extremely convenient for business travellers as Algiers International airport is just 7 min drive on a non-busy road network. Moreover, the Algiers Metro line, currently under construction, will be connecting the hotels with Algiers City Center and the airport. The metro station is situated 50 m from the Hotel Complex.

Algiers’s location in North Africa on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea allows for a mild weather system averaging 26°C in July. Caters mainly for business travellers but definitely provides top range leisure & tourism facilities.
The complex features a large High End Shopping Center.
