New Edinburgh Marriott to create 100 jobs

Edinburgh’s newest city centre hotel, Courtyard Edinburgh, is set to create 100 jobs ahead of its December launch.

Courtyard Edinburgh, from Marriott International, is a contemporary four-star hotel located next to the Playhouse.

The hotel offers a unique opportunity for employees to join the business at the start, ahead of its official opening in December.

Douglas Winfield, general manager at the Courtyard Edinburgh, said: "It’s an incredibly exciting time and it’s not often that in any line of work that staff get an opportunity to get in at the start, helping establish the ambience, quality and high standards of customer care we’ll be creating at Edinburgh’s latest, stylish hotel."

The hotel is the third Courtyard hotel in Scotland from Marriott International and comprises a series of three adjoining Georgian townhouses, one of which was home to Robert Stevenson, the famous Scottish lighthouse engineer and the grandfather of ‘Treasure Island’ author Robert Louis Stevenson.

Courtyard Edinburgh is aimed at business travellers looking for a place where they can ‘switch off’; leisure travellers and local residents.
