International hotel chain Marriott International has been open for business since early 2021, making the University an even more attractive destination for events, conferences and other visitors. The investment and building costs were met entirely by the franchisee.
The 150-bedroom Courtyard by Marriott Hotel boasts a restaurant and bar, meeting rooms, and fitness suite. The hotel, managed by Tower Hotel Management has 180 new parking spaces created around it.
The hotel is located near to the main entrance to campus on the Science and Innovation Park, and adjacent to the new Smart Innovation Hub which houses the Business School and business incubator units.
The new hotel allows visitors and conference delegates to stay on campus instead of travelling to overnight accommodation further afield. The hotel will be popular with visiting parents, Keele Hall wedding guests, and during our graduation and open days.
The multiple organisations based across the Science and Innovation Park also benefit from being able to accommodate visiting staff and guests overnight.
