New Marriott Breaks Ground in Maui

Maui’s first Courtyard by Marriott hotel broke ground in Kahului yesterday, offering a place for business and leisure travelers wanting to stay near Maui’s central hub.

The new Courtyard by Marriott Maui hotel is being built near the intersection of Haleakala Highway and Keolani Place on a 3.35-acre parcel of land. Construction on the $16.5-million project will begin next week, with completion expected in early 2012. Upon opening, the four-story, 138-room hotel will be managed by Marriott International.

Located within minutes of the Kahului Airport, the hotel will appeal to both business and leisure travelers, with 49 studio kings, 79 studio double queens, six suites, and four extended stay suites. Guest rooms will have large desks, couches, and complimentary Wi-Fi and broadband Internet access.

In addition to its business center, pool, and fitness center, the hotel will feature a lounge and bar, gazebo, guest laundry, surfboard storage building, and convenience market. The hotel will also offer 1,663 square feet of meeting space, including a boardroom.
