    Marriott International has announced it has signed franchise agreements that will add three more hotels to its lodging portfolio in Europe. The hotels include:
    • 87-room Renaissance Lucerne Hotel, Switzerland (2011)
    • 139-room Renaissance Aix-en-Provence Hotel, France (2012)
    • 113-room Renaissance Paris Saint-Cloud Hotel, France (2013)

    Earlier this year, Marriott announced its plans to double its presence in Europe by 2015. These three additions to the development pipeline in Europe bring the total number of hotels currently in development throughout Europe to 27.

    Renaissance Lucerne Hotel

    The 87-room Renaissance Lucerne Hotel will open in 2011 under a franchise agreement with Hotel Schiller Betriebe AG. The hotel, formerly the Hotel Schiller, dates back to 1909 and is located along the Pilatusstrasse in one of the most desirable shopping areas of Lucerne. Boasting high style and contemporary design, the hotel will be Marriott’s first in the picturesque city of Lucerne. Lucerne, located less than one hour from Zurich Airport, sits on the shore of Lake Lucerne with stunning views of Mount Pilatus and Rigi in the Swiss Alps.

    Renaissance Aix-en-Provence Hotel

    Opening in 2012, the 139-room Renaissance Aix-en-Provence Hotel will be located in this small classically provencal city in southern France known for its wrought iron bell towers, beautiful paved plazas and average 300 annual days of sunshine. The new hotel will operate under a franchise agreement with ARTHOTEL Aix-en-Provence SAS. Located 30 km north of Marseille, Aix-en-Provence is often referred to as the city of a thousand fountains, among the most notable the 17th century Fontaine des Quatre Dauphins (Fountain of the Four Dolphins.) The newly built property will be located in the heart of the city center, a stone’s throw from the Grand Theatre de Provence. The hotel will boast two restaurants, a destination bar, and outdoor pool.

    Renaissance Paris Saint-Cloud Hotel

    When opened, the boutique 113-room Renaissance Paris Saint-Cloud Hotel will be the fifth Renaissance property in Paris. Opening in 2013 under a franchise agreement with Paris Country Club SA in Saint-Cloud, France, the hotel will be located adjacent to the elegant Paris Country Club, offering guests a unique opportunity to experience the many amenities of the club, including its golf course and tennis courts.

    Located just 15 minutes from Paris Porte Maillot (Congress Center), the newly built hotel will boast the same design as the Paris Country Club with its country manor style and half-timbered façade. The hotel will offer two restaurants, a bar, 743 square meters of meeting space, and a luxurious outdoor pool and spa.
