IRVINE, CA—R.D. Olson Development has completed construction of the 210-room Courtyard by Marriott here.
The eight-story hotel, which was designed by WATG, has officially opened and represents the Southern California debut of Marriott's latest Gen Next design. The room mix includes 94 King beds, 14 executive corner suites and 102 double Queen bed configurations. The hotel also offers 8,500 square feet of meeting space.
R.D. Olson Development, which has plans for a 175-room hotel on the parcel adjacent to the newly opened hotel, will retain ownership of the hotel with management services provided by Marriott International.
"This project has special features not found in any other Courtyard property, and we are proud to be part of bringing this excellent hotel to the heart of the Irvine Spectrum," stated Bob Olson, CEO and founder of R.D. Olson Development.
