CALI, COLOMBIA—Marriott Hotels recently opened Cali Marriott Hotel, its first property here and the company’s third in the country.
The 170-room hotel, developed under an agreement with Real Hotels and Resorts, S.A. and Grupo Poma, represents Marriott’s growing presence in Colombia. Cali Marriott Hotel is the third hotel under the Marriott International portfolio in Colombia following the success of its predecessors, Marriott Hotel Bogota (2009) and JW Marriott Bogota (2010).
The hotel is situated in Granada, the center of Cali, which hosts restaurants, bars and business, and serves as the city’s financial district. The company wants to establish this new property as “the place to be,” for business and social gatherings in the capital of Valle del Cauca. The new hotel includes a modern room design equipped with blackout windows, luxury bedding, personal care amenities and high-speed Internet.
