Marriott has announced the opening of Fairfield by Marriott Kathmandu, which marks Marriott’s entry into Nepal and further expands the company’s footprint in South Asia.
Fairfield by Marriott is an established leader in the select service segment, with nearly 850 hotels around the world.
“We are very proud to debut in the kingdom of Nepal and introduce the Fairfield by Marriott brand as Marriott International’s first hotel in the country,” says Mike Fulkerson, Vice President, Brand & Marketing Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “As with all Fairfield by Marriott hotels around the world, guests can expect the same high standards of service and seamless experience so they never have to skip a beat.”
Fairfield by Marriott Kathmandu is located in Thamel, a district at the heart of the capital’s central commercial hub, which was previously known as a bohemian haven before it became a popular shopping destination. Close to all the destination’s popular attractions including the Narayanhiti Palace Museum, Garden of Dreams and the Kathmandu Durbar Square, the hotel is also conveniently situated 5km away from the airport.
Neeraj Govil- Area Vice President, South Asia for Marriott International added: “We believe this is exactly the right product for this market as it fills a much-needed gap in the moderate tier segment with its fresh, contemporary design, service excellence and great value. We are confident this will resonate well with both leisure and business travelers to Kathmandu.”
The hotel offers 115 smart, straightforward and thoughtfully appointed rooms. Kava, the all-day dining restaurant, serves local, Indian and international cuisine. Meanwhile, Kava – The Bar and lobby lounge is a lively spot offering freshly brewed coffee and an array of cocktails in the evening. The Business Centre meeting rooms are equipped with the latest audio visual facilities and all public areas and guest rooms have high-speed Wi-Fi. The hotel also features The Market, a unique 24/7 convenience store within the hotel, where guests can purchase snacks and beverages at any time of the day.
Sharing his thoughts, Prakash Jayadevan, General Manager, Fairfield by Marriott Kathmandu said, “There is a lot of enthusiasm and excitement as we launch the Fairfield by Marriott brand in Nepal. We aim to set the standards of delivering a great hotel experience at an affordable price point, through consistent and reliable service that comes from being a part of Marriott International.”
Fairfield by Marriott Kathmandu is the latest addition to the brand’s footprint in South Asia, with four hotels in India currently open including Fairfield by Marriott Bengaluru Rajajinagar, Fairfield by Marriott Bengaluru Outer Ring Road, Fairfield by Marriott Lucknow and Fairfield by Marriott Belagavi.
