The Courtyard by Marriott Riyadh project is a hotel construction project that began in February 2015 and was completed in May 2019. The project aimed to construct a modern and luxurious hotel in the heart of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, that would cater to both business and leisure travelers. The hotel features state-of-the-art amenities, including a fitness center, outdoor pool, and multiple dining options. The hotel also boasts a prime location, with easy access to major business districts and tourist attractions in Riyadh.
